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!
