    I know it's possible to connect iPads to LCDs and TVs, but is it possible to connect it to a giant LED OUTDOOR DISPLAY?

    If the display has a standard HDMI input, you should be able to connect an Apple TV to the display and stream the video to the display from the iPad, via the Apple TV.

    Or even just use the appropriate (30-pin or Lightning) Apple HDMI adaptor, for iPad2 and above.

    The reason I suggested the Apple TV in this case is to eliminate the need for the iPad to be right next to the input for the display screen. The cable connection would work, within the limitation of the cable length.
