Plasma displays and HD camcorders support Japan's elite athletes in a new training facility.
Under the guidance of the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology, the National Training Center (NTC) opened its doors on January 21, 2008, as a comprehensive training facility for Japan's top athletes to further hone their competitive skills.
The NTC has an indoor training facility at its core that contains special courts and rooms for each sport, and also houses facilities for track & field training, indoor tennis courts, and an athletes village for accommodation. Plasma displays are used in the practice areas for each sport, the main entrance lobby, and in meeting rooms throughout the facility.
The National Agency for the Advancement of Sports and Health (NAASH), which manages and operates the NTC, selected the equipment to be used after carefully considering requests from relevant sports associations.
The AV system includes projectors and screens for giant, 200-inch images, and a number of medium-and large-size displays of around 50 inches. The sales company advised NAASH on the following plasma display advantages:
The future advantages of HD compatibility were also explained, and the final decision by NAASH reflected these proposals.
