The world's largest television has been unveiled - and it's so big it has to be kept outside.

The C SEED 201 boasts 16ft-wide screen and costs 414,000 - four times as much as a Porsche 911 sports car.

It's made in Austria by made by the supercar company's Porsche Design Studio which hopes to sell 25 sets a year.

When switched off it is hidden away, but at the touch of a button seven folding panels rise from the ground and unveil the 201in widescreen.

It is made up of more than 725,000 LEDs which display 4.4 trillion colours and use biometric fingerprint sensors to prevent unauthorised use.

Alexander Swatek, from C SEED owner Global Bright Group, came up with the idea for the giant TV after being inspired by the phenomenon of public screenings.

"C SEED is a new brand that came about by pooling years of professional experience. It has a unique heritage because it draws on the best minds in their fields," he said.

The biggest television already on sale in Britain is the 84in LG Ultra HDTV, which went on sale for 22,499.99 before Christmas.
