Think you have a big TV? You don’t have a big TV. This is a big TV. It’s the world’s largest 1080p HDTV, and it’s a whopping 120 inches diagonal. It’s not a flat-panel, so you won’t be able to hang it on your wall, but come on — could your wall even handle it? This thing would need some serious support to be held up. It’s actually a DLP, so it’s a fancy projection-screen TV. DLP uses tiny mirrors to project the image, and it keep it from being as thick as older projection models. It’s no plasma screen, but at 37 inches deep it’s a lot thinner than you’d expect.
No word on whether or not this thing will actually hit stores, but it’s probably just an attention-grabber here at CES to pull people into the Optoma booth to check out more realistic and rational fare. However, if it did go up for sale it would probably cost somewhere near $100,000, so don’t get your credit cards ready just yet. If you really want to see a screen this big you’d be wise to save your cash and just go to the movies.
