“Big Hoss TV”—a 218 foot by 94.6 foot TV—was introduced at Texas Motor Speedway in Fort Worth, Texas last week. Texas Motor Speedway President Eddie Gossage powered up the video board in front of more than 8,000 fans that filled up the infield.
Constructed by Panasonic, “Big Hoss TV”, took more than four months to build.
Gossage announced that “Big Hoss TV” would officially go into the Guinness World Record books prior to the big show on April 6.
“Big Hoss TV” is positioned in the middle of the backstretch perched above “Burnout Alley” featuring 20,633.64 square feet of HD LED display that consists of 4.8 million pixels and 281 trillion colors.
Gossage is most proud that “Big Hoss TV” is gigantic, standing at 79% larger than the video board at AT&T Stadium, home of the Dallas Cowboys, which stands at 11,520 square feet. Take that, Jerry Jones.
“Big Hoss TV” features a 140-degree horizontal viewing radius which translates into crystal clear pictures from any of the 128,655 seats along the front stretch seats.
Gossage concluded by saying, “Everybody is competing in sports with the ever improving technology. This is a big place and “Big Hoss TV” puts you right where the action is and up close. Now you can watch somebody race down Turn 1 and 2 and something occur on Turn 3 and you might have missed it. But not now! With this big screen, you won’t miss a thing.”
This big screen is also going to show replays.
