A First Look Inside the MSG Sphere

A look at the world’s largest LED Screen

The MSG Sphere is one of the most secretive AV installations in recent memory. Inside the space, there are signs about “immediate termination” if you take a photo/video. Apparently, that doesn’t apply to filmmaker Darren Aronofsky.

“My iphone can’t come close to capturing the definition on the screen,” Aronofsky posted on Instagram. “At times you forget where you are and you’re transported to the other side of our home.”

Aronofsky, who is known for blockbusters such as The Wrestler, Noah, Black Swan, and The Whale has been commissioned to create Postcards from Earth. Postcards has been shot on 18k cameras to take full advantage of the Sphere’s 18K screen.

Even though the outside, or exosphere, has been operational and wowing Vegas and beyond since July 4, 2023, this is the first real look at the inside. Unless you’ve had the chance to sneak a peek inside the space. What has been boasted as the “largest screen on the planet” certainly is showing off with Aronofsky’s project.

MSG Sphere AV

The MSG Sphere is not only a video marvel but an audio one as well. L-Accoustics supplied the 170,000 speakers in the space. In addition, this is a 4D plus experience. Sight with the 18K display. Sound with the 170,000 speakers. Feel with rumble seats. Smell with olfactory sent insertion. And environmental with wind machines and the ability to adjust the temperature plus or minus 10 degrees in a matter of seconds.

InfoComm 2024 takes place in Las Vegas, the home of the MSG Sphere. Postcards from Earth is showing when there isn’t a residency in place. After the U2 experience at the Sphere ends in December, the group plans to announce the acts coming to the Sphere in 2024. As of this writing, Postcards will be what is available.
