October 8, 2005 Here’s yet another version of one of the world’s favourite games – “mine’s bigger than yours.” Daktronics announced yesterday it has been awarded a contract to design and build the world's largest high definition (HD) light emitting diode (LED) display for Dolphins Stadium in Miami, USA. The display will measure approximately 15.2 metres high by 41.8 metres (636 sq. m) and will best the current record holder, the Turner Field screen in Atlanta which measures 21.6 by 24.1 metres (521 sq. m). The project is scheduled to be completed in time for the 2006 baseball season and although it will be the largest in the world when it is first switched on, the record will fall again later in the year when Tokyo Racecourse will open its 11 metre by 60 metre screen (660 sq.m). Of course that’s just the high definition record – the biggest video display in the world has stood for five years at 4 Times Square, New York and measures 27.4 metres by 36.5 metres for an even 1000 square metres.
