Dallas Cowboys: HDTV
Looks like somebody was in such a hurry to keep up with the Joneses, that they surpassed one of Cowboys owner Jerry Jones’ most prized possessions.
Charlotte Motor Speedway and Panasonic, with help from former Dallas Cowboys All-Pro Ed “Too Tall” Jones, showed off the track’s completed 500,000-pound steel structure on Thursday morning. It will hold the world’s largest HD television – taking that distinction away from Cowboys Stadium.
Just how big is the television, which will be located on the track’s backstretch? The video board will measure 80-feet tall by 200-feet wide, which will be nearly 30 percent larger than Jerry Jones’ screen. The full screen will be made up of 158 panels consisting of 9 million LED bulbs, and the entire structure – which will weigh 650,000 pounds when complete, will reach more than 110 feet in the air.
