Mitsubishi HD Display At Cowboys Stadium Is World's Largest (By A Country Mile)

These days, almost every company is claiming to have the "world's best" something. It used to seem relatively special to hear that some firm had accomplished a feat that no one else on the planet had done, but today, it's more commonplace than ever before. Regardless of all that, we can assure anyone that viewed last night's Monday Night Football matchup that the Dallas Cowboys actually have a record worth swooning over.

The absolutely mammoth display that hangs about the new Cowboys Stadium in Texas stretches for what seems like miles, even though it's "only" 60 yards. Developed and produced by Mitsubishi Electric, the Diamond Vision display has been certified as the world's largest High-Definition Video Display by the folks at Guinness World Records.  The world’s first four-sided, center-hung, high-definition video display in a stadium consists of four Diamond Vision® LED video screens, with the two main sideline displays measuring 72 feet high by 160 feet wide, and two Diamond Vision end-zone displays measuring 29 feet high by 51 feet wide. Weighing 600 tons, the screens are suspended 90 feet directly over the center of the playing surface and stretch from nearly one 20-yard line to the other. With a total viewing area of 11,393 square-feet, the Diamond Vision display is equal to 3,268 52" televisions, and has 10,584,064 LED lights.



So, does anyone plan on making the trek to Arlington to check this thing out in person? And better still, does anyone have special access? We'd love to see what Crysis looks like on a screen like this!

Haha, there have been a few incidents of punters hitting the screen during gameplay, much to the ire of the Cowboys owner.

But really, it's Texas, what can you expect of them? :)

If you hit the screen during the game, they replay the down. While mostly punters have been hitting it (everyone in preseason), I think if I was trying to hail mary and no one was open, it would be clever to purposely hit it to get another try. It would take quite the arm to hit that thing, but probably most of the NFL QBs have such an arm. That is the play I am waiting to see, to see if Jerry Jones will raise it during the next offseason. It would cost alot of money, but if it costs them a game, he may consider it.

There is ALL KINDS of Tech in Texas lol

We've got Dell, Nvidia, Acer's Warranty Repair center(I used to work there heh), and Westinghouse are just a few, and that's just in the Austin area. There's plenty more in Houston, San Antonio, and Dallas.

Edit... I forgot to mention IBM, Apple, Ebay, Intel, Cisco, AMD, Google, HP, Samsung, Nokia, and Sun Microsystems also have operations in Austin. There's plenty of other's as well :-)

There has been a lot of talk in the NFL about this thing. It sure is a lot of pixels. Crysis would be sick on that thing for sure. I wonder how much juice this thing sucks up and if it uses some type of special connections. I know they could feed several 3rd world countries for what that thing cost. But heck like ya'll said, everything's big in Texas

I was thinking earlier about what game would be the best to play on this screen.

I think FPS are "too" big once you get past life size. I'd rather play some kind of FP space battle sim on it. :)

It looks crisp and clear even when zoomed in on during live HD broadcasts, I'd love to be able to have just one of the end screens, nevermind having 2 60 yard ones! :P
