I know what you're thinking
If you are like me, you are thinking, "You know, that big screen TV the Republicans have been using at their convention would be just about right for my living room," especially when Superbowl Sunday rolls around.
While the Democrats went with an array of Panasonic projection systems in Denver, LG high-definition televisions have been placed throughout the Xcel Energy Center in St Paul, Minnesota for the Republican Convention. But none of them measure up to the "wow" factor of the podium's video wall, measuring 51 feet, six inches wide by 30 feet tall. The wall is made up of 561 Hibino four-millimeter Chroma LED panels, giving everyone in the convention hall a crystal-clear view of videos that have been part of the program of events. Sounds just right for my living room. All I have to do now is make my house about 30 feet taller and 50 feet wider.
