What Happens When A Small-Town Family Visits The "World's Largest"... Whatever!

World’s Largest Four-Millimeter LED Screen, Philadelphia, PA

Illuminated screens play a far larger role in my family’s everyday life than I care to admit. So I was sure that the tip I got from Mara at Mother of All Trips would result in a memorable stop during our Philadelphia weekend getaway.

She suggested we visit the Comcast Center, for a look at the “Comcast Experience” wall.


This image is displayed on only the top half of the screen. The panels below aren't really panels, they're video replicas of the room's actual wood panels.

The 2,100-square foot HD video display wall is the world’s largest four-millimeter LED screen. For 18 hours a day, you can watch various short films; original programming created exclusively for this screen, which measures 83.3 feet wide and 25.4 feet high.

We spent about 30 minutes watching; which is all you really need. Take a quick detour to check it out on your way to the Franklin Institute, which is nearby.

We were amazed by the screen’s clarity.  There are 10 million pixels, giving it five times the resolution of hi-definition TV. We watched a program about Frank Lloyd Wright’s “Fallingwater” house. Normally, this subject matter would fall upon my children’s glazed eyes. But given the marvel of this immense screen, a documentary about paper bag manufacturing would have thrilled them.

Again...not real panels, or people, but remarkably clear and detailed.

Hey you! Go BIG!:

    Holy moly! I’ll have to check that out next time we visit tha fam. It’s a little insane. Could you imagine if they hooked a Kinect up to that thing and did a game like Dance Central or something 😉

    Wow! I miss all those trips to the museums my parents used to take me on the weekends. Such a lovely way to go on a vacation in your city. You should nominate this for our Sharky Awards (disclosure: I work for them so I can’t nominate the cool things in travel I find!). – http://www.travelshark.com/sharkyawards
