"P2 Cameras" and "Tapeless Workflow" Withstand Even Harsh Conditions
About 3.5 billion people around the world watch the Olympic Games. At this scale, the most important feature for the broadcasting equipment is reliability. Panasonic's DVCPRO P2HD has been used as the official audio-visual recording format for the Vancouver Olympic Winter Games. With help from semiconductor memory, Panasonic enables trouble-free shooting under the harsh conditions of the Olympic winter venues, where temperatures can drop below zero. But the benefits of P2HD extend beyond the mere shooting of footage. P2HD facilitates the rapid delivery of footage to people the world over by enabling instant editing.
