Sharp Creates Awesome Video Room for Theme Park

The first time I ever saw a 3D movie was at a theme park. Each time we go to the beach we end up having to take the kids over to the IMAX theater that is nearby too so we can see something on the giant screen. The larger the screen you use to watch the video, the more immersed you become. Sharp has created an awesome video screen room that may be the most immersive video attraction ever.

The attraction is called the 5D Miracle Tour, and its space is being constructed for a theme park in Japan called Huis Ten Bosch Co. Ltd. The video room opens on April 29, 2011 and will have a total of 156 massive 60-inch Sharp PN-V601 LCD panels inside it. The front wall, ceiling, and floor each get 36 of the screens and the wide walls each get 24 screens.

The overall effect of all the screens makes for a video wall of 200-300 inches surrounding the viewer. I’m not sure what the deal with seams is though. The rendering clearly shows seams and the press release says that the display is seamless.
