Stop us if you’ve heard this one before: A Texas sporting venue has announced the production of the world’s largest HD screen in order to bolster fan experience.
This time, however, it’s not a contest between Dallas and Houston (which Houston is currently winning) in the NFL.
Nope, the “Big Hoss” – the nickname alone deserves a Muurica! – HD screen is set to blow the minds of those taking in races at Texas Motor Speedway. Track president/general manager Eddie Gossage explained that the new screen will help the venue compete and bring in fans that might generally be inclined to watch events on their flatscreens at home.
“Live sports venues are really in a battle with social media, with home theaters, affordable big-screen televisions, streaming video and more,” Gossage said. “…As a result of all of these things that have occurred, we have to give fans a reason to come see and feel, experience, smell, taste exciting racing action live and in person, and get ‘em off the couches.”
You want specs? We’ve definitely got specs:
- 21,000-square-foot Panasonic screen
- Will broadcast in 1080p,
- Top out at nearly 125 feet high, and
- Stretch 218 feet wide
Take a closer look at the future screen with the teaser trailer below. Scroll down to see the official unveiling of the plans for the Big Hoss (we just can’t help ourselves: Muurica!).
