At&T Stadium is the home of the Dallas Cowboys. It is also home to one of the largest Diamond Vision screens in the world. A screen some fans find to be a big distraction. Still, the epicness of this giant TV can not be overstated. So, leave it to funny man and late night television host Conan O’Brien to try something, that I must confess, has always sounded like an awesome idea: to play video games on one of the world’s largest high-definition LED video displays. Check out the video below:
Here are some fun facts about the AT&T Stadium Center-Hung Diamond Vision Screen:
It cost $40 Million to make. Texas Stadium, which broke ground back in 1969, only cost $35 million to build.
The center screen stretches from one 20-yard line to the other 20-yard line.
The video board contains 30 million light bulbs
Each of the two center-hung sideline displays is 160 feet wide and 72 feet tall.
In total, it weighs 1.2 million pounds.
The screen area for each sideline display board is 11,393 square feet.
The video source is 1080p HDTV.
The Screen’s power consumption is 635 kilowatts. In 2012, the average annual electricity consumption for a U.S. resident was 10,837 kWh.
Jerry Jones got the idea for a high-definition center-hung board while rocking out at a Celine Dion concert at Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas.
