Dwarfs the Sharp 108-inch LCD, (15 feet by 8 feet) trick is the mounting bracket:) The Italian company, in operation since 1987, specializes in displays for outdoor areas. Like a jumbotron. Except for inside, and HD.

I'm waiting until the price goes down...

Where's Paulc? He has been waiting for home IMAX. Hope he is in a position not to have to ask the price cause if you have to ask . . . you can't afford it!

Just read the release and am a bit confused. The reference to "LCD HDTV" is crossed out in the text and replaced with "LED TV".

Presumably, this is a rear projection, right? Since there are no shadows on the screen from the people standing in front of it. :confused:

Nope, this works the same way the Jumbotrons work at stadiums and such.

They are using RGB LED's to create the image. Almost like a Plasma TV or a CRT TV.

This IS a flat panel display

Well, this ain't an IMAX! Besides, I was being facetious about wanting it, one does need the vertical height of 7 floors in an apartment building AND I'm on the top floor anyway! Besides, do you have any clue what an IMAX projector costs?

But it does point to something that I've never heard even discussed in HD circles. Pixel density. Think about putting 1920 x 1080 pixels on a 40" display, a 60" display, a 104" display, or a 207" display.

Yep know all about IMAX - been a stockholder since 1990 and at my local IMAX theater they have a seat in the back with a reserved sign on it . . .for me (just kidding). I go about 2X a month.

And that IS a good question converning resolution versus size.

Dwarfs the Sharp 108-inch LCD, (15 feet by 8 feet) ...Unless those people standing directly in front of it are freaky giants - I think they are using the overall dimensions to get 205" -let's say it's just 14 x7 feet for the actual video display area then sqrt((14 x 14) + (7 x 7)) x 12 = 187.8" (http://www.google.com/search?sourceid=navclient&ie=UTF-8&rls=GGLG,GGLG:2005-45,GGLG:en&q=sqrt%28%2814x14%29%2b%287x7%29%29x12)
In any event - here's their web page description of it and smaller versions

they even have a 2nd hand store

Actually anyone -(like me) - with a 8' wide x6' high FP screen in their viewing room - already has something that gives a very similar looking presentation -[like that picture] - (for 4:3 movies at least)

"They unveiled them at a yacht show in February"

Ya, think i'll buy two out of petty cash!


More seriously; it'd be interesting to see it sid by side with a top in front projector.

maicaw's right...for those that want that size at an effective cost only need to look at FPs.

This set is not about getting a big image. This set is a revolutionary set because it is NOT made from a single glass panel, rather it is made from 4 panels joined together. And it is using LED's to create the image which again is new (not to be confused with using LED's as backlighting like in RPTV and LCD.
