Panasonic Enterprise Solutions has announced that it is installing the largest 4k display in the world at Churchill Downs in the US. Churchill Downs is a horse racing track where the Kentucky Derby is held each year. Panasonic is installing a gigantic 4k screen at the track so that people can see the races up close along with other details.




The giant screen will have 15,224 square feet of space. Overall dimensions of the screen are 171-feet wide by 90-feet tall. Panasonic says that the screen will stand 80 feet off the ground and promises viewing angles that will let anyone in the park get a good view.


Panasonic says that the screen was engineered to withstand winds up to 90 mph. The entire structure is so massive that a dozen metal beams had to be sunk 45-feet down into bedrock to support it. Once complete, the screen will be the largest 4K display in the world. Churchill downs plans to have the screen in operation by April 26 for opening night.
