Panasonic FZ-G1 Serves Up An Ace At Wimbledon
Great to see Andy Murray going into the second week of Wimbledon. We spotted the Panasonic Fz-G1 being used for in game scoring on the Umpires chair. This is a nice choice for such an installation as the bright 10″ outdoor readable screen will perform well in the varying lighting conditions of an English Summer and the IP65 rating will be able to cope with the occasional downpour of rain.
FZ-G1 uses an Intel i5 Chipset running Windows 8 along with 4G WWAN GPS Wi-Fi Bluetooth and batteries good enough for 8 hours continuous use.
Using Mobility at sports events is nothing new. Intemec have supplied the PGA Golf Tour with handhelds for some years for on course scoring. MobileDemand have worked with teams in NASCAR and F1 for tyre management.
