Panasonic unveils the World's largest HD screen

Japanese company creates jaw-dropping big screen

Panasonic yesterday unveiled the World's biggest HD screen, recently installed at the NASCAR Charlotte Motor Speedway across the pond in North Carolina.

Using an oversized remote control, American race car driver Dale Earnhardt Jr was on hand to help unveil the screen, and christened it by taking a few virtual laps around the 1.5-mile track on an racing simulation game.

The 720P HD screen comes in at a ridiculously massive 16,000 square feet, being 200 feet wide and 80 feet tall. To put this into comparison, a double decker bus is 15 feet tall and 40 feet long, that’s 5 double decker busses wide, and over 5 high. Yes, our jaw dropped to, can you imagine playing FIFA on this thing?

The 332-and-a-half-ton structure, comprising of 158 panels and 9 million LED lamps, took 57 people working more than 11,000 man hours over four months to construct.

The screen will officially debut on 21 May during the NASCAR Sprint All-Star Race, with the super massive HDTV airing clips of Top Gear USA during a History Channel sponsored race the week after.
