Texas Motor Speedways Plans to Build World's Largest HDTV
There are few things more beloved in America than excess and television, and nowhere is that clearer than in Texas Motor Speedway’s recently announced plan to build the world’s largest high-definition outdoor television display.
The Texas HDTV will boast an impressive 20,000 square foot screen, eclipsing the current largest outdoor HDTV at Charlotte Motor Speedways, CNN reports. Texas Motor Speedways will build the display in conjunction with Panasonic, which also helped to construct the HDTV in Charlotte.
The Charlotte Motor Speedways HDTV has a 16,000 square foot display. With a height of 80 feet and a width of 200, the TV is more than 2,000 times the weight of Panasonic’s largest consumer television and has a width more sizable than the front of the White House.
According to spokespeople for Charlotte Motor Speedways, the HDTV took 11,000 hours to complete and was 20 percent larger than the the display at Dallas’ Cowboy Stadium, which had previously been the world’s largest.
Texas Motor Speedways hope to soon begin construction of their HDTV display.
