Panasonic sign Royal Palaces partnerships

Panasonic has announced a long-term corporate partnership with Historic Royal Palaces (HRP), the independent charity which manages six former Royal residences in the UK.

The partnership presents Panasonic with the opportunity to showcase its business technologies, while enabling HRP to provide an improved visitor experience for its customers.

The first joint initiative saw 12 Panasonic high brightness projectors used as part of the 500th anniversary celebrations at Hampton Court Palace. A 22-minute projected artwork, which told the architectural and cultural history of the palace, played for three nights over the Easter weekend.

Panasonic laser projectors are being used in a new exhibition in the palace, bringing animation to Hampton Court’s stories. A total of eight projectors have also been installed within the Tower of London jewel house, helping to interpret the story of the Crown Jewels.

Masaki Arizono, MD of Panasonic System Communications Company Europe, said: "This partnership marks the start of a long-term relationship with Historic Royal Palaces, which we feel generates tremendous value for both parties. It is part of a wider Panasonic strategy to provide dedicated solutions support for our key customers."
