C SEED 201

Once the stand reaches its set height, seven large screen panels unfold to form one 201-inch LED television. It takes less than a minute from the remote-control activation to the TV being ready for use. It retails at $637,800. Neither an open-air arena nor a forum is included with this purchase. CSeed.tv
