Panasonic presents video featuring large-screen solutions

OSAKA, Japan, December 23, 2015

Panasonic unveiled a video featuring large-screen solutions for gold standard venues of sports and entertainment in North America to enhance the fan experience. 
The video highlights the reasons Panasonic became the partner choice for such venues as Indianapolis Motor Speedway, Churchill Downs and LA LIVE, said a statement.
Jim Doyle, president of Panasonic Enterprise Solutions Company, a division of Panasonic Corporation of North America, explained in the video that Panasonic created a holistic custom solution to match the unique needs and challenges of each stadium and arena to enhance the fan experience.
“There's nothing like the energy, emotion and sensory experience of a live event. But that's just not enough anymore. The real-time data, the interviews, the social media component, these are things that simply have to be incorporated into the live experience to get people off their couches and into the stadiums or arena.”
“The reason Panasonic quickly became the partner of choice for venues looking to create a completely immersive, engaging experience for their fans is that Panasonic partners with them to fully understand their needs, and the unique challenges they face in their venue," said Doyle.
"Then, together, Panasonic creates a holistic, custom solution that addresses their concerns and meets their needs in a way that no one else can,” he said.
Panasonic Solutions extend 'from Glass to Screen.' They cover what’s captured by Panasonic professional video cameras and lenses to what appears on the video boards in the venue and all the elements in between, including switchers and monitors, control room design, security systems, content creation, management and maintenance, said the statement.
At the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, the largest sports venue in the world with a 2.5-mile oval, Panasonic installed 20 large to moderately sized LED video boards that provide views to 98 per cent of the spectators.
Panasonic also installed a control room to deliver real-time stats, data and rich content to each of those 20 boards, it said.
Doug Boles, president, Indianapolis Motor Speedway in the video, said: “With high definition video equipment, we could switch from camera angles on the race track to the in-car camera to see what the driver is going through on the track real time, in addition to being able to add all the information on fans’ wants.”
Churchill Downs, home of the Kentucky Derby, is another unique gold-standard venue that needed to preserve the history and legacy of the famous facility. 
It also needed to provide a view of the race to 75,000 people in the infield who had never actually been able to see the action on the track before.
Panasonic installed the world largest 4K video board measuring 171-feet wide by 90-feet tall with a state-of-the-art sound system. At the Kentucky Derby the entire venue was riveted to the board during the fastest 2 minutes in sport.
At LA LIVE and STAPLES Center, Panasonic installed a fully comprehensive solution including security solutions, large-screen displays, projectors, POS systems and TVs.
Russell Silvers, senior vice president, Partnership Activation, AEG in the video, said: “We wanted to have one technology partner that could help not just from a hardware perspective, but also from a service standpoint. That is something that is unique with Panasonic.” - TradeArabia News Service
