Behold: the all-dominating C Seed 262 – the largest 4K widescreen TV on the planet.

A screen diagonal of 262 inches (nearly 22 feet) or 6,65 meters; ten integrated high-end speakers for 9.1 cinema surround; an integrated 4k media server and a custom fabric cover (disguising the ultra black screen as a huge painting when not in use) that folds back with a touch of the remote to reveal the enormous ultra high definition LED gogglebox.

Yours for a trifling €477,000.
