James Bond, Porsche Unveil 201-inch LED TV Install

James Bond-style video showcases an installation of the C SEED 201-inch retractable outdoor LED TV.

Jason Knott · October 9, 2012

When CE Pro first touted Austria-based C SEED Entertainment Systems GmbH as having “the world’s largest outdoor LED TV,” the video was a computer-generated version that showed the unit rising from the ground, opening and activating.

Now, there is an actual installation to tout, complete with a James Bond theme.

The C SEED TV is a 201-inch screen built jointly with Porsche Design Studio. The unit rotates 270 degrees, has an adjustable height of 15 feet, an array of 15 speakers and takes about 40 seconds to fully deploy.

The installation is at the Palais Schoenburg in Vienna, Austria and the video includes a Bond-style actor pulling up to the palace in his Porsche (of course) and settling in with a “Bond girl” to watch the new trailer for the upcoming James Bond film Skyfall. (Editor’s Note: After the release of the film, the Skyfall trailer was removed from the C-SEED video and replaced with scenes of old sailing ships, horse racing, etc.)

Can you sell one of these?
