London 2012 Olympic Games
 
The London 2012 Olympic Games will be the tenth Olympic Games (countingboth Summer and Winter Games) where Panasonic's digital technologies willbe used as the official recording format, dating since the Barcelona 1992Olympic Games. The official international video will be produced anddistributed from theInternational Broadcast Centre(IBC) in London OlympicPark, in 1080/50i High-Definition (HD) format.
 Panasonic announced thatDVCPRO HD will be the official recording format for capturing the Games.Olympic Broadcasting ServicesLondon (OBSL), the Host Broadcaster, will useP2HD series equipment to support the broadcast of the competition. Thecameras that will be used are the AG-
HPX250, the company’s first P2 HD
handheld camcorder with AVC-Intra recording and two new AVCCAM HDhandheld camcorders, the AG-AC160 and AG-AC130, with Full HD imagersand a new, wider 21X HD zoom lens.
 According to the IOC's claim to providing over-the-air television coverage to asbroad a worldwide audience as possible, London 2012 is scheduled to bebroadcast by a number of regional broadcasters. TheBritish BroadcastingCorporation(BBC) is the home broadcaster for the Olympics andChannel 4the home broadcaster for the Paralympics. The BBC aims to broadcast byvarious channels all 5,000 hours of the Olympic Games.
 Much of the actualbroadcasting is originated by theOlympic Broadcasting Services(OBS). TheUnited States television rights currently owned byNBCaccount for over halfthe rights revenue for the IOC.
 Many television broadcasters grantedrights to the games have bureaux and studios in London, but since at least the1988 Olympic Winter Gamesin Calgary, rights-holder operations are hosted inthe dedicated International Broadcast Centre (IBC). London's IBC is plannedto be inside the security cordon of theOlympic Park. YouTubewill live stream the games to countries all over the world as part ofan IOC deal.
 
Environmental policy
TheOlympic Parkwill incorporate 45 hectares of wildlife habitat, with a total of525 bird boxes, and 150 bat boxes. Local waterways and riverbanks are to beenhanced as part of the process.
 Renewable energy will also feature at the Olympics. It was originally plannedto provide 20% of the energy for the Olympic Park and Village from renewabletechnologies; however, this may now be as little as 9%.
 Proposals to meetthe original target included large-scale on-site wind turbines andhydroelectricgenerators in the River Thames. However, these plans were scrapped forsafety reasons.
 The focus has since moved to installing solar panels onsome buildings, and providing the opportunity to recover energy from waste.Food packaging at the Olympics will be made from compostable materials
 –
 like starch and cellulose-basedbioplastics
 –
where it cannot be re-used or re-cycled. This will include fast food wrappers, sandwich boxes and drink cartons.After they have been used many of these materials will be suitable foranaerobic digestion(AD), allowing them to be made into renewable energy.
Tourism and the 2012 Games
The 2012 Games park near Stratford is attracting new tourists to the area.
 The upgradedGreenwaycycle and walking path provides an ideal viewingpoint for the park while the site remains closed to the public.In 2011, a new initiative to bring tourists and visitors into the area will involve apublic waterbus "hop-on hop-off" route, from Limehouse Basin to waterwaysnear the Olympic Park.
