Charlotte Motor Speedway to get world’s largest HD video wall

Posted in Panasonic by Shane McGlaun on September 24th, 2010

The stadium here in Texas where the Dallas Cowboys play football has a massive video wall hanging from the ceiling of the stadium. The idea is to let everyone be able to see what is going on the field even if they have bad seats. NASCA fans that watch at Charlotte Motor Speedway next year will be able to see the world’s largest video wall.

The new wall will be used to show race coverage, leader boards, and other interactive entertainment at the track. The massive screen will be placed between turns two and three on the track. The video wall will be 200-feet wide, 80-feet tall, and will weigh 165,000 pounds.

The thing covers an area of 16,000 square feet and is set up to be viewed by spectators sitting on the front straight between Turn four and Turn one. The screen will have 720p resolution with 9 million LEDs making the picture. Construction will start in October and end in April 2011.
