For 1.7 Million Dollars you too can Have the World’s Biggest 4K TV!
by Stephan Jukic – July 25th, 2014
A British company named Titan recently unveiled their new TV and it’s utterly mind boggling in its specs.
The fittingly named Zeus is probably the world’s largest single TV and at 370 inches of diagonal screen size, it’s absolutely enormous. Designed for either indoor or outdoor use, the Zeus isn’t simply some PR gimmick, you can actually buy one of your own, provided that you have 1.7 million dollars laying around.
One of these big boys was on display at this year’s Cannes Film Festival where World Cup Games were shown on it, and aside from the immense screen size (and obviously immense weight) the Zeus also features an extraordinarily fine grained 4K UHD resolution that dazzles on such a fittingly vast screen.
That’s the best thing about the Zeus in fact. It truly has been built with a 4K friendly design. While of course 4K UHD looks fantastic on nearly any largish display format you use it one, the screen or projection sizes in which it really shines for its clarity and brilliance are those with the largest possible dimensions. In this category Zeus beats any other commercially available non-projection screen you can find anywhere today.
Given Zeus’s size, the manufacturer Titan makes a big promotional effort around its capabilities. On the company’s website they showcase the fact that you can use the TV to easily watch 20 channels at the same time and even with the screen broken down like that, each one of the 20 mini-screens is still plenty big enough to match a smaller conventional TV.
The Zeus beats the world’s largest contender for World’s largest TV by more than twice the screen size. This previous record holder was a 152 inch Panasonic TV that also featured 4K display technology.
To be fair, the Zeus is obviously a really big ticket item that’s more of a promotional novelty than a real consumer product –though the company has already sold 4 of them to private buyers. However, if you’d like to get your hands on a similarly gigantic visual display that also showcases 4K UHD resolution at 3,840 x 2,160 pixels, then your best bet is to go for a 4K projector from Sony or another name brand high-end maker of projectors.
While 4K projectors aren’t cheap by any conventional standards, they come nowhere close in price to Titan’s Zeus and a superb model that can also render exquisitely clear 200+ inch displays on any large enough blank surface will cost you no more than $20 to $30 thousand dollars.
The Sony Ultra Short Throw Projector is a great example of Super-sized screen power on a “budget” and best of all, it also doesn’t weigh several hundred pounds like the Zeus.
