Panasonic today announced that the company participated in the Paris 2024 Operational Test event held at the Champ-de-Mars Arena in Paris, France on August 27 for the Olympic Games Paris 2024.

The Olympic Games Paris 2024 will be the first time in the Olympic Games history that breaking (break dancing) will be included in the competition. Breaking is a dance competition in which a DJ plays improvised music, and the judges evaluate aspects like their technical skills, expressiveness, and composition. Technics will support the breaking competition at the Olympic Games Paris 2024 as the official DJ turntable to bring excitement to the competition with music.
As a partner of the Olympic Games, Panasonic collaborated with the International Olympic Committee (IOC) and the Organizing Committee for the Olympic and Paralympic Games Paris 2024 to confirm the operation of the equipment. The company is steadily preparing for support during the Paris 2024.
The Panasonic Group has supported the Olympic Games for over 30 years. At the Olympic Games Paris 2024, it will continue its support of the Olympic Games through various technologies, products, and solutions, such as projectors and sound equipment, to share the passion and excitement of the world’s greatest sporting event with people around the world and contribute to the Olympic Movement.
