From the article:

Bruton Smith and Charlotte Motor Speedway officials announced a partnership with Panasonic to revolutionize the fan experience at motorsports events with the creation of the world's largest high-definition video board." ...

... "At an incredible length of 200 feet wide, standing 80 feet tall and weighing 165,000 pounds, the video board will cover an expansive 16,000 square feet and be located between Turns 2 and 3 along the backstretch of the legendary superspeedway. Fans seated throughout the frontstretch from Turn 4 to Turn 1 will have clear viewing angles of the gigantic board that will feature 720P high-definition visuals illuminated by more than nine million light emitting diode, or LED, lamps." ...

At 720p for the size described, thats a dot pitch of well over 1 inch. I am sure I've made displays approaching that size.. It's my job.

I believe this one approaches it in size, and even wraps the corners of the building:


Miracle Miles Shops (a 170-store shopping and entertainment center) that is anchored by the Planet Hollywood (formerly the Aladdin) hotel/ casino commissioned YESCO, Inc. (Las Vegas) to design and install a series of LED video screens (PRISM Display System with a 25mm pitch) that formed a media facade that fit across the upper third of the building. The media facade displays both faced The Strip and also vehicular traffic approaching it from the sides of the building.


Our standard highway billboard is 20 mm pitch:
Size14'-0 x 48'-0
Rows (pixels)208
Column (pixels)720

So, its about equal to 3 1/2 x 2 standard billboards at a bigger dot pitch, in fact, close to 2" between pixels. (Don't sit too close.)
