World’s Biggest Television: How Wide Is Too Wide?
Updated: Sep 22
Do You Need This 262-inch Display in Your Home Media Room?
When we’re young, we all dream about owning a home media room with all the coolest, newest and biggest AV tech available, right? But when you grow up, you realize that bigger isn’t always better – in fact, you may be much happier sacrificing size for quality, like from a proven manufacturer. But one company is betting that some homeowners are willing to go big. But if you’re in Westlake, Texas, where everything is bigger, do you really need to invest in a massive, 262-inch monster. In this blog, we’ll explore what’s really important. Read on for more.
World’s Widest Television
The TV, produced by Vienna, Austria-based C Seed, is one of the largest pieces of indoor AV ever produced. According to the Verge: “It’s hard to overstate how massive the 1,763-pound C Seed 262 is. It comes with 10 integrated speakers for a 9.1 cinema surround sound environment; there is a remote-controlled fabric cover that protects the 19-foot-wide LED screen; and there’s even a built-in 4K media server.”
The behemoth is designed to re-create the feeling of an entire home theater system, with a single hefty package. The only problem is that with a nearly 20-foot wide TV, most homes won’t have enough available room to make it a fun, inviting or comfortable viewing experience.
So how do you get more out of your AV?
A Smarter Media Room
While it’s easy to assume you can show off by installing C Seed’s TV, you probably won’t get much out of the experience. Instead, go with proven methods of delivering top-quality sound and image in a room that’s any size, anywhere in your home. We break down a few ideas below:
TV Display: your TV’s size, like a screen in a home theater, should be determined by where you intend to sit, and how many available seats you plan to have. This will ensure that everyone in the room gets a great experience. Plus, going with proven leaders in display technology can enhance everything, like LG’s OLED and Sony’s user interface.
Sound System: Think you need a 9.1 surround sound system built directing into your TV? A Dolby Atmos system can fit just about any room, big or small. Plus, you’ll get fully-immersive 3D audio quality in a customizable configuration that fits your lifestyle.
Scalability: A large part of the problem with investing in a single, 1,763-pound home entertainment system is that it’s not scalable. If you’d like to start small and build up, you’ll be out of luck. Instead, go with an entertainment system that fits the way you want to use it.
The big question that looms over this big TV is whether massive video displays are the future of the market. We’ll keep our eye on that particular development. But remember, if you’re interested in building a smart home media room system, it’s always a good idea to consult with a professional first.
