The Arizona Diamondbacks baseball team plays at Chase Field, which is home to another giant screen. This 136 by 46-foot screen has 6,256 square viewable feet (581.2 square meters) of HD pleasure [source: Business Wire].

And of course, it didn't come cheap. Between production and installation, the Daktronics screen cost around $1 million [source: KTAR]. The screen's landscape orientation (and the fact that it's eight times bigger than the team's old scoreboard) means it can display two true HD images side by side at a 16:9 aspect ratio. It also produces around 4.4 trillion colors.

The HDTV was just one of the high-tech components added to Chase field. As part of a major renovation project, the stadium also added a brand-new sound system and LED ribbon boards to show scores and information throughout games.
