They say size doesn’t matter, but when it comes to signage, making an impact often comes on a large scale. As well as this, if you’re looking for inspiration for your own signage, you can utilise the bigger companies for ideas and tips. They might have larger advertising budgets and signage, but your quirky and creative innovative ways will ensure you make an impact of your audience, whatever industry and wherever you are. All you need is some inspiration, so check out our list of the 15 biggest LED digital signage pieces around the world.
Times Square, New York City
Of course, no LED signage list would be complete without featuring Times Square. It’s not just the size of the screens that are featured in this monumental area, but also the amount. This colourful and vibrant piece of New York is often seen as the hub of the city, with flocks of tourists coming to stare in awe at the huge, high resolution screens. In a sea of advertisers and brands, companies need to make an impact in this area, whether by simply being the biggest, or having the most engaging animation.
Broadway, New York City
Just around the corner from Times Square, comes one of the largest, if not THE largest, LED screens in the USA. The Marriot Marquis Hotel on 45th Street features a screen the size of an American football field, spanning the entire side of the building. Even up close, this screen is still just as impressive, ensuring that nothing becomes blurry the closer you are to it. You can just see it the left of the picture above.
The Cube, Brisbane, Australia
Brisbane in Australia is home to one of the largest interactive digital displays in the world. This vast piece of technology, named ‘The Cube’, attracts crowds of onlookers to learn and interact with the touch screen. It’s based in the Queensland University of Technology and teaches lots of people about the environment around them, that they may not get to experience in person.
America features on our list yet again, and it’s no surprise that Las Vegas has made an appearance. With its bright lights and entertainment, big screens are an essential feature of the strip, specifically on Fremont Street, with more than 25,000 people flocking daily to see the amazing light show. The screen features more than 12 million LED lights, so it’s no wonder why it’s made this list.
Istanbul Airport, Istanbul
Samsung Electronics hit the jackpot with Istanbul Airport, which now boasts the largest indoor airport LED signs in the entire world! Go big or go home is the airport’s mentality, which is now on its way to becoming the biggest airport in the world. At least it has the digital signage to match.
The Place, Beijing
Known for its more cultural aspects, such as ancient temples and peaceful mountains, Beijing is also home to a little something called ‘The Place’, a huge LED canopy that certainly makes an impact in the digital signage world. This incredible piece of technology is noted as Asia’s largest screen and well worth a visit.
The UK might be a small island, but it comes up big in the digital signage stakes. Piccadilly Circus used to feature lots of individual screens that curve around the building (as seen above), but now can claim to have the largest individual digital screen in the whole of Europe.
Another record-breaker on our list, again in Europe, Madrid can now say it has the largest outdoor digital screen in Spain. Although perhaps not as large as others, its smart technology allows the screen to repel water and dust, which is extremely helpful with being outdoors.
South Korea Airport, South Korea
Airports are big on advertisement, which is why a couple have featured on this list. South Korea is no different, boasting two of the largest OLED screens in the world. No only are these great for capturing all that footfall’s attention, they can also be used for wayfinding and information too.
Mercedes-Benz Stadium, Georgia
The Yanks have done it again, with another ginormous screen, this time in Georgia. The Mercedes-Benz Stadium, home to the Atlanta Falcons (NFL) and Atlanta United FC, actually claimed the record of the world’s (that’s right, not just the US) largest video board, back in 2017.
Texas Motor Speedway, Texas
Staying in the US for now, the Texas Motor Speedway has a Panasonic video screen size of 218ft by 95ft, making it one of the largest HD video displays in the world.
Meydan Racecourse, Dubai
Away from the US, is the Meydan Racecourse in Dubai. The racecourse is spectacular enough in itself, being able to hold over 60,000 spectators, as well as featuring a horse racing museum and five-star hotel. Wowza. Although not the largest LED screen for a racecourse, the Meydan still hosts a video display of 12 million LEDs.
Yankee Stadium, New York City
The huge Diamond Vision LED display screen in the Yankee Stadium, New York City, is one of the largest sporting venue screens going – and it’s even more surprising that this was first constructed ten years ago! Fans were concerned the screen would take over the stadium, distracting viewers from the actual game at hand – and although this is probably the case, you do get a great view from all angles.
Tokyo Racecourse, Japan
This huge screen that spans near enough the entire finish line of the racecourse, is actually the size of three tennis courts! Back in 2006, this screen boasted the title of largest HD TV. Even if it’s not breaking any more records, it’s still big enough to make our list.
Arena Corinthians, Brazil
Another sporting stadium features – and for good reason too. With 34,000 LEDs and standing at 560ft by 66ft, this is a gigantic digital screen and lives at the Arena Corinthians in Brazil, installed for the World Cup.
