Samsung has formally revealed the new name of its giant display installed in the SoFi Stadium situated in California, USA. The state-of-the-art display with a screen real estate of 70,000 sq. ft. will henceforth be called The Infinity Screen. The new name of this centrally-hung screen was finalized after months of consideration.
The Infinity Screen features the most LEDs ever used in an entertainment venue or a sports stadium. It is also a part of the only end-to-end 4K video production system ever used in a stadium. Samsung and the SoFi Stadium say that the new name of the giant circular display clearly communicates their overall vision.
The circular display is installed 122 feet above the playing field and features 80 million pixels. The pixels are placed 8mm away from each other. Each panel on the display is arranged in such a way that it can display animated or live content, statistics, and graphs.
Everyone in the stadium can view the display clearly, whether they are seated on the sidelines or the upper deck. Spectators seated in the lower bowl of the stadium can view the inner screen, while the ones seated in the upper deck can see the outer display of The Infinity Screen.
Mark Quiroz, Vice President, Display Division, Samsung Electronics America, said, “It’s been a long time coming, but we are so proud to announce The Infinity Screen by Samsung. SoFi Stadium is one of the NFL’s crown jewels, and it has been a privilege and an honor to work with the team on this project. We are incredibly excited to see fans engage with the Infinity Screen in-person for the first time.”
Samsung also has plans to showcase its display technologies throughout Hollywood Park to reach consumers across the district’s residential and office areas through the connected mobile app.
