    Panasonic, Charlotte Motor Speedway team up for the biggest HD screen ever


    It's been a bad week for Jerry Jones. Not only are the Cowboys 0-2, but Panasonic and Charlotte Motor Speedway have announced plans to take away his record for the largest HD video screen anywhere. Scheduled to debut in May 2011, the 720p, 16,000 sq ft (200 feet wide, 80 feet tall, 165,000 lbs, more specs are in the press release after the break) LED video wall will be installed along the backstretch between turns 2 and 3 at the race track allowing fans seated on the frontstretch to still see drivers shake and bake all the way around the track. A quick perusal of Wikipedia's list of top videoboards reminds of former contenders for the title -- massive screens at stadiums hosting the Kansas City Royals, Tokyo horse racing, Longhorns football and Miami Dolphins will all drop one more notch on the list. :eek: :eek:

    Yeah, but it'll be showing car racing, so it doesn't really matter, does it?

    720p at 200 feet wide, can that even be considered HD considering that is a ratio of 3.6 per foot? That is a cheap knockoff screen.

    It's 80 feet, not 200. (720 refers to the vertical resolution).
