Panasonic has announced that they have installed the world’s largest HDTV inside of the recently remodeled NYC City Hall. In addition to the 103” plasma Panasonic also installed BD-0A Blu-ray players for 1080p playback as well.

The huge 1080p display will help the Mayor’s Office monitor news and play HD video content. The screen will also display real time 311 call statistics and live video from NYC-TVs City Drive Live traffic cams.
For those like me who don’t know what a 311 call is, it is a service that allows residents to call the city to find out about things having to do with city works such as street cleaning.
"Panasonic has been a great corporate citizen, and I would like to thank them for their generous donation," said Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg. "New York's City Hall is the oldest in the nation to still house its original government functions, and this desperately-needed renovation, including this 103-inch High Definition Plasma display, has given the building new life - making our office safer, more efficient and more technologically advanced."
The screen has a 1920 x 1080 resolution, 5000:1 contrast ratio, and 4096 equivalent steps of gradation for color reproduction. The size is equal to that of four 50” screens. I’m betting it won’t be long before a portion of the screen is displaying soaps. Via Panasonic
