Panasonic dreht Olympia-Eröffnung in 4k

Pansonic hat angekündigt, die Eröffnungsfeier zu den Olympischen Winterspielen in Sochi in 4k aufzeichnen. Panasonic ist offizieller Olympia-Ausstatter und liefert umfangreiches Produktions-Equipment für die Winterspiele. Ebenso gehören aber auch großformatige Displays und Sicherheits-Kameras zur Ausstattung am Austragungsort. Die 4k-Aufzeichnung dürfte zunächst vor allem als Technik-Demonstration dienen. Ob diese dann auch später in 4k zumindest für Panasonic-Kunden verfügbar gemacht wird, ist noch nicht bekannt.
