The First "HD Video Conference System Equipment" to Be Used at the Olympic Games

Panasonic's HD Video Conference System equipment is the first of its type ever to be used for the Olympic Games. It enables bi-directional transmission of full HD video and clear audio over the Internet without delay. Connecting the Vancouver Olympic Village to the Whistler Village 120 kilometers away, the HD Video Conference System equipment was a vital infrastructure for the Welcome Ceremonies and for Chef de Mission meetings for the country teams. Dynamic face-to-face communication for scheduling confirmation and other tasks shortens the distance between far-away venues.
