Before opening day in 2008, the Kansas City Royals baseball team bought an HDTV screen that was the largest in the world upon installation. At 85 feet wide by 105 feet tall, the screen is topped with the Royals' signature golden crown [source: Daktronics].

But the Kauffman screen isn't a single screen. It's actually three high-definition screens fitted together as one. And you won't find just one person running the display during a game, either -- it takes a production team of 20 people to input data, update stats and sort endless display options.
