The Largest LED mirror screen display is 1,302.5 sq m and was achieved by The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia Pavilion at Expo 2020 Dubai, UAE, on December 20, 2020. Integrator Kraftwerk LT built the display from 1,336 custom LED panels, each with a mirrored glass face. It has a pixel pitch of 31mm. As well as its own content, it reflects images from an LED floor below.


Tallest LED illuminated façade
The tallest LED-illuminated façade runs 770m up the 828m-tall Burj Khalifa in Dubai, UAE. The record was broken on January 1, 2019 when the display was unveiled for New Year celebrations. EMAAR Properties Dubai turned to SACO Technologies and its local partner 3S Lighting Solutions to deliver the system that illuminates the iconic building.

All records are based on screens recognised by the Guinness Book of Records and were correct at the time of writing.
