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.

Kuusamo/Finland:  -18°

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!
