Toughbook in action with the German ski jumping team
DSV ski jumpers use Toughbook computers to analyze their jumps
Whether in training or at World Cup competitions:
Panasonic Toughbook mobile PCs serve as reliable partners to the ski jumping team of the German Ski Association (DSV) at all times – even in the most adverse and extreme temperatures and weather conditions.
Klingenthal/Germany: 4° and continuous rain
During the team’s preparation for the World Cup season, Toughbook computers are exposed to a typical German winter. It’s cold, wet and raining constantly – but the computers run reliably. When training’s finished, they’re turned upside down to dry off.
The temperatures are frosty when the World Cup season gets underway. Under these conditions it takes a little longer than usual for the computers to boot, but the batteries keep running throughout the competition. “5 hours at -18° – that’s just great,” sums up co-trainer Christian Winkler.
Kuopio/Finland: -15° and icy drizzle
The co-trainer is also enthusiastic about the Toughbook computers’ reliability under icy conditions at the second World Cup meeting: “A film of ice on the PC, but it keeps working brilliantly!!!”
Christian Winkler’s verdict going into the World Cup event in Sapporo, Japan: “The Toughbook computers are top-class and make our work at the hill a whole lot easier.”
We’ll be keeping our fingers crossed for the German team!
