The BC Place Stadium hosted the Opening and Closing Ceremonies of the Olympic Winter Games Vancouver 2010. This colossal venue with a capacity of 60,000 featured three Panasonic LED displays.
Panasonic’s LED large-screen display systems were also installed at David Lam Park, a Live Site open to the public and running real-time Olympic Games coverage. During the Opening Ceremony of the Olympic Games, the crisp images and dynamic sounds emerging from the screens made spectators feel as if they were witnessing the event from inside the BC Place Stadium.
In close proximity to downtown, Stanley Park has long been a place of recreation for Vancouverites. Across the harbor, the International Broadcast Centre (IBC) served as a hub delivering exciting Olympic Games footage to more than 200 countries. Panasonic supplied a number of broadcast equipment and Plasma displays to the IBC, supporting the activities of international broadcasters.
