The Olympic Games of the XXIX Olympiad mark the first time in the history of Olympic television broadcasting that the entire production will be done in high definition.

BOB has chosen Panasonic HD equipment for the event because of Panasonic's wide range of HD products, including P2 (solid-state recording) HD equipment such as the new AJ-HPC2000 P2 HD camcorder, the new AJ-HPM100 P2 mobile recorder, the new P2 Station AJ-HPS1500 P2 recorder. According to BOB, BOB is planning to produce all the international television signals in HD and it plans to be 100 percent HD-ready. The official HD video recording format of the Beijing Games will be DVCPRO HD, and BOB will use a combination of DVCPRO HD tape recording and P2 HD solid state memory recording. Deployed in various competition venues throughout China, the Panasonic HD equipment will be used by BOB and other broadcasters.

Barcelona Olympic Games in 1992
"This will be the world's largest sporting event and the most technologically advanced in the history of the Olympic Games. BOB surveyed the market very carefully to ensure that we will be using the most sophisticated and reliable technology currently available," said Manolo Romero, the CEO of BOB. "BOB has been very happy with the performance of Panasonic digital products since we first used them in the Barcelona Olympic Games in 1992, and now the recently expanded HD portfolio - the broad range of advanced HD products - is quite impressive."

Panasonic AG-HVX200 P2 HD camcorder
Panasonic offers a range of high-quality HD solutions to meet every application and every budget. For numerous applications to be used at this prestigious international sporting event, BOB chose the compact, versatile AG-HVX200 multi-source camcorder. The award-winning AG-HVX200 or similar future models, which combine P2 HD superiority and cost-effective solutions in a hand-held camcorder, are ideal for certain applications, which require flexibility.

"From a technology perspective, this Beijing Olympic Games will be particularly exciting. We are pleased that BOB as well as other broadcasters - and the global audience for the coming historic event - will benefit from Panasonic's efforts to deliver advanced, practical HD solutions as the industry transitions to high definition."
