Salt Lake City Olympic flashback starring Panasonic technology


Large screens totaling a surface area of 644m2 colored the winter landscape in vivid images.

Panasonic technology has had a 28-year association as an Official Worldwide Olympic Partner. On the verge of the Rio 2016 Olympic Games, we are looking back at some major innovations the games have been responsible for. Today we flash back to the 2002 Salt Lake City Olympic Winter Games. Salt Lake 2002 was the highest altitude host city ever chosen for the Olympic Winter Games, and medals were won by athletes from 18 countries, a new record for the Olympic Winter Games.

Broadcasting Equipment


At the Salt Lake City 2002 Olympic Winter Games, Panasonic used an accumulated wealth of experience to deliver a broadcasting system capable of operation in freezing cold conditions. High-quality images were broadcasted with the help of Panasonic’s digital VTR and video cameras, to share the heated excitement of competition with the world.

ASTROVISION Large-Screen Display System


Panasonic provided 16 ASTROVISION screens totaling a record surface area of 644m2 to the Salt Lake City 2002 Olympic venues. All screens were state-of-the-art LED systems that functioned even under extremely cold conditions.

RAMSA Professional Audio System


Panasonic gave the utmost care to the installation and operation of RAMSA audio technology at Salt Lake City 2002 Olympic venues. One example of this was running constant noise through the sound systems to prevent failure from frost in extremely cold conditions.
