The Super Bowl LVI between the Los Angeles Rams and Cincinnati Bengals will take place on Sunday, Feb. 13, 2022 at SoFi Stadium. The stadium is also home to Samsung’s 4k Infinity Display, spanning more than 70,000-square feet that includes complementary audio with more than 260 JBL speakers built into the screen’s frame.
Samsung says the dual-sided display is the largest videoboard ever created for sports. The company adds that it engineered the display to provide stadium patrons an immersive experience.
Features of the 4K Infinity Display
The Samsung Infinity Display sits 122 feet above the playing field in full view of everyone. It also utilizes more than 80 million pixels. The 2,200-pound HDR10+ enabled videoboard is 120 yards long. Meanwhile, its tallest panel stands about 40-feet tall and its smallest panel is about 20-feet tall.
Samsung then explains how the 80 million pixels deliver 4K HDR images. Per the company, the pixels are spaced 8 millimeters from center-to-center. Operators divide the screen to showcase congruently programmed content. This ranges from in-game statistics to live and/or animated content.
The company then shifts to the screen’s design. Here, the global electronics company says that engineers analyzed the stadium’s architectural drawings. This helped them develop the shape and orientation of the Samsung Infinity Display. Samsung also emphasizes that the massive video screen’s design was paramount to the project. Thus, they chose screen’s shape and size to ensure that everyone in the stadium can see the screen.
Other aspects of the L.A.-based venue’s in-game experience include more than 2,600 Samsung large-format displays. These displays strategically placed throughout SoFi Stadium. They also include Samsung ribbon boards (long, thin LED screens) placed on the face of balconies.
