Vatican returns to Panasonic

The Vatican Museum has installed ten Panasonic plasma displays for digital signage and 32 displays for its surveillance and control room. The signage is placed in the foyer of the building’s new entrance and will be used to inform and drive tourists.

The latest installation adds to ten years of co-operation between the museum and the display manufacturer.

Fifty inch, 65” and a 103” displays make up the signage and for security requirements the complex opted for 32 Panasonic 42” displays in a video wall configuration.

The museum is also considering installation of a 3D enabled 103” display in its congress room.
“We are proud of this cooperation with The Vatican”, said Laurent Abadie, president and CEO of Panasonic Europe. “To have our professional plasma technology installed inside the Vatican Museum to support the viewing of precious pieces on display and to drive visitors inside the course of museums.”

Claudio Lamperti managing director of Panasonic Italia, underlined the importance of security: “Our main hope,” he said “is to continue our relationship during the coming years, to support the job of the surveillance and security teams at The Vatican with our best technology”.
