How’s this for an impressive outdoor TV? C SEED Entertainment Systems in Austria has hit the market with a 201-inch, outdoor, folding LED TV that disappears underground on an automated pedestal.

The unit, which the company bills as “the world’s largest TV,” noiselessly raises from underground up to 15 feet in the air and entirely unfolds in 40 seconds.

CE Pro 100 company DSI Entertainment Systems in Los Angeles is among a select group of integrators offering the product, which seems ideal for country clubs and other places where outdoor entertaining take place.

The cost of the product is undisclosed, but it is likely to fall into the category of “if you have to ask, you can’t afford it.”

Among the features of the system, which was designed by Porsche Design Studio, are:

  • 100,000 Hz refresh rate enabling daylight viewing
  • High Resolution Retina LED Display in a 16:9 aspect ratio
  • HD video transmission
  • Digital and analog inputs
  • 42-bit color depth
  • Biometric fingerprint scan on the remote control
  • Wind and temperature sensors to protect the unit from harsh environments
  • Adjustable height and rotation up to 135 degrees in either direction
  • 6 built-in speakers and 3 built-in subwoofers
  • Built-in lasers so the unit will not deploy if someone or something is too close to it
  • Accepts WirelessHD signals
  • Compatible with home automation systems
