DLP projectors ride the Kentucky Derby

Kevin C. Tofel

Sure, you could watch the Kentucky Derby from the grandstands, but why not watch from inside the track? The Kentucky Derby Museum tapped Panasonic for nine of their PT-DW7000U DLP projectors and built a 360-degree viewing area. The 720p projectors beam their high-definition signal all around you, so it's as if you're on the infield grass, but you don't have to watch where you step. Various footage is shown on the racetrack oval's 211 linear feet, which is much shorter than the Derby's one-and-a-quarter-mile track; it probably smells better too. Hey Panny: we're hard at work for a similar screen surround as we wait for the Xbox 360's Halo 3; care to lend a hand?
