Panasonic announced today that it recently celebrated the latest installation of 42 new plasma displays in the Vatican Museum, reinforcing the existing Panasonic technology already in place.
Ten displays were installed at the foyer of the new entrance and will be used to inform and drive the millions of tourists that visit the Vatican Museum. Among the displays installed are 50-inch and 65-inch models. Panasonic's life-sized 103-inch display also was installed, and with its wide-viewing angle the screen ensures displayed information is clear and visible.
Panasonic technology inside the Vatican also plays an important security role.
Thirty-two professional-grade 42-inch displays have been installed in a video wall configuration in the museum's control room. The displays were chosen for their picture quality and color reproduction which allows the security operators to study high-quality video in real time, Panasonic said.
For the Jan. 28 celebration, the Panasonic delegation, led by its European president, Laurent Abadie, was received into the Governatorate Palace by His Excellency Monsignor Carlo Viganò, General Secretary of the Governatorate of the Vatican City State.
The ceremony continued inside the Vatican Museum, with a visit of the new installations, and at the celebration Panasonic and Vatican Museum directors said that their cooperation will continue in the future.
The installation of another 103-inch display is being considered, Panasonic said, this one with 3-D technology into the congress room.
