A TECHNOLOGY firm has unveiled the world’s largest television – boasting a 16ft-wide screen made by supercar company Porsche.
The C SEED 201 is an engineering masterpiece so large it has to be installed outside.
When switched off it is hidden away, but at the touch of a button seven folding panels rise from the ground and unveil the 201in widescreen.
It is made up of more than 725,000 LEDs which display 4.4 trillion colours and use biometric fingerprint sensors to prevent unauthorised use.
The set, which takes just 40 seconds to unfold entirely, was designed by the Porsche Design Studio, a subsidiary of the
car giant. It costs £414,000 – four times as much as a typical Porsche 911 sports car.
The firm, which hand-crafts the televisions in Austria, is hoping to sell 25 sets a year.
Alexander Swatek, from C SEED owner Global Bright Group, came up with the idea for the giant TV after being
inspired by the phenomenon of public screenings.
“C SEED is a new brand that came about by pooling years of professional experience. It has a unique heritage because it draws on the best minds in their fields,” Mr Swatek said.
The biggest television already on sale in Britain is the 84in LG Ultra HDTV, which went on sale for £22,499.99 before Christmas.
