Sydney 2000 Olympic flashback starring Panasonic technology


Panasonic broadcasting equipment supported the International Broadcast Centre (IBC) through the construction of a fully-digital broadcast system.

On the cusp of the Rio 2016 Olympic Games, we are looking back into our 28-year history as an Official Worldwide Olympic Partner. Today we flash back to the Sydney 2000 Olympic Games. The last Olympic Games of the 20th century, Sydney 2000 was broadcast in 220 countries, delivering unforgettable memories of the Olympic Games that heralded the advent of a new century.

Broadcasting Equipment


Panasonic was again responsible for the design, construction and maintenance of IBC (International Broadcast Centre)’s fully-digital broadcasting system during the Sydney 2000 Olympic Games. The system, which the build-out took two years to complete, broadcasted the events of the Games clearly to the world.

ASTROVISION Large-Screen Display System


Panasonic installed two large ASTROVISION screens in the main Sydney 2000 stadium, “Stadium Australia,” the largest Olympic stadium in history. ASTROVISION screens were also installed at the live sites around Sydney, to transmit the excitement and passion of the Games outside the stadium.

RAMSA Professional Audio System


RAMSA sound systems were fitted in the 34 stadiums of the Sydney Olympic Games. Compared to past Games such as Atlanta 1996 and Nagano 1998 for which Panasonic also provided solutions, the scale of involvement at the Sydney Games greatly increased. At Sydney, Panasonic’s newest model, the digital audio mixer WR-DA7, found great success in its high functionality and compactness.

Panasonic plays a major role in the Rio 2016 Olympic and Paralympic Games, in our capacity as both an Official Ceremony Partner – a first for Panasonic – and as the Official Worldwide Olympic Partner in the Audio and Visual Equipment category.
