Channel 7 has recently renovated its Martin Place newsroom to include not just one, but three of Panasonic’s gigantosaurus plasma panels.The panels are there to provide a striking backdrop as the newsreaders deliver soul-crushing news several times a day.

“The challenge for us was to find a display solution that allowed our team to present a wide variety of content in any combination across all three screens simultaneously with exceptional picture quality, such as live backgrounds, live remote crosses as well as both still and moving graphics.”
