London Olympics lays claim to largest landscape video display

The London 2012 Olympics hosted the largest ever landscape video display according to developer TAIT Technologies who picked up a Guinness World Record for its pixel tablets that ran on Barco’s FLX system.

The display, which consisted of 634,500 individual pixels, underpinned the Olympic Games’ opening ceremony on July 27, 2012 and was used during other events during the games.

Each seat in the main stadium had a pixel table that the audience was able to hold up to form a seamless ring of images formed from the 70,500 tablets.

Frederic Opsomer, CEO of TAIT, said: "The assembly of dispersed LED pixels to form very large video images has been with us for some time, but never before has it been done on such a scale, and with such organic animation."
