NEW YORK, NY, USA -- The world's largest high-definition video display turned on its nearly 24 million LED pixels at 1535 Broadway in New York City's iconic Times Square and make its debut with an exhibition of digital art by Universal Everything Studio; the display is a massive 25,610-square-feet, and with a pixel density of 2,368 x 10,048, and it will be the highest resolution LED video display in the world of this size,
according to the World Record Academy: www.worldrecordacademy.com/.

The Guinness World Records' record for the largest high-definition video screen is an LED display which measures 250 m x 30 m (820 ft x 98 ft) for a total surface area of 7,500 m² (80,729 ft²). It is located at The Place, Beijing, China. The screen is actually composed of five (still extremely large) screens that are arranged in a line to produce one continuous image.
Guinness World Records also recognized the world record for the largest screen display; it was organised by Red Communications and Mediaset using 4,138 7-inch monitors displaying all different episodes of the satirical news programme "Striscia la notizia" at the Triennale Exhibition of contemporary art in Milan, Italy on 11-25 November 2007. Total area of screen display is 455.18 ft2 (42.29 m2)
The installation will employ a Mitsubishi Electric Diamond Vision AVL-ODT10 large-scale display which provides true 10mm pixel pitch spacing and uses a 3-in-1 surface mount LED (SMD) featuring Mitsubishi Electric's revolutionary Real Black™ LED technology.
"With 23,793,664 individual physical pixels a video quality display of this size and density is a milestone in the industry. It exceeds 4k resolution by nearly 15 million pixels," says Todd Stih, national sales manager, Mitsubishi Electric Power Products, Inc.
Due to the very high resolution and pixel density of the display, Mitsubishi Electric supplied a special control system to provide pixel-to-pixel mapping of content and life-like images. The image area of the display can be segmented to display multiple pixel-for-pixel 1080 HD or 4k images simultaneously. The display canvas allows for two 4k images to be displayed side-by-side, with pixels remaining in the height and width for other content.
The use of the Real Black™ LED technology allows for deep, rich black levels and unsurpassed vertical viewing angles in an outdoor LED display product. The characteristics of Real Black™ LED technology will ensure that Times Square crowds have a clear view of the display up close and in bright sunlight conditions.
"We have worked on a number of record-breaking projects, but working with this type of pixel density and installing it in a 24/7 live environment presented unique challenges. However, we delivered the display modules earlier than scheduled and due in part to great cooperation and team work with the project team at Vornado Realty Trust, our customer, completed the project on time," says Mike Brosko, operations manager, Mitsubishi Electric Power Products, Inc.
Google has signed a deal for an undisclosed amount for an ad campaign that runs through the New Year, Clear Channel said. The rate for a four-week advertising blitz is $2.5 million, according to the New York Times.
The new billboard is located in the heart of Times Square and faces the intersection passed every day by an average of 300,000 pedestrians and 115,000 drivers and passengers, according to the Times Square Alliance.
