The giant HD screen above the Dubai Aquarium & Underwater Zoo has set three Guinness World Records so far.
The Dubai Mall has unveiled an 820-panel high-resolution video wall. The massive wall has broken records to take the distinction of being the largest high-definition video wall in the world.
It is also the largest organic light-emitting diode screen in the world, and the highest resolution video wall as well.
The flexible screen is placed above the giant ten million-litre tank at the Dubai Aquarium & Underwater Zoo, located on the ground level of the mall. The tank showcases hundreds of sharks and rays, including the largest collection of Sand Tiger sharks in the world.
The new screen curves as visitors watch the mesmerising image of waves rolling over it.
The technology allows the screen to emit light without backlighting, making for stunning images, says Emaar Entertainment who run the attraction.
“The multiple records perfectly complements the advanced technology that we know Dubai is known for,” said Talal Omar, Middle East and North Africa Country Manager for Guinness World Records.
“We are proud to yet again provide a platform to recognise and share amazing moments, always eager to showcase these records and give companies or individuals a chance to be a part of an officially amazing experience.”
