LED industry pioneer, Chris Curtis, founded GoVision (www.jumbo.tv) in 2002. Curtis was largely responsible for the creation of the portable daylight large screen industry when he co-founded Motion Graphics, the pioneer of the category, in 1991, and later purchased the business outright in 1992. Three years later, Curtis merged Motion Graphics with BCC Video’s Jumbotron division to form Screenworks, now one the industry’s largest players. Desiring to concentrate on other business opportunities, Curtis sold his interest in Screenworks in 1998.
A few years later, recognizing an opportunity presented by a shift in LED technology, Curtis founded GoVision in 2002, and soon secured contracts with the Billy Graham Crusades, Texas Motor Speedway and the University of Texas / University of Oklahoma rivalry football game.
Since then, the company has provided LED screens for over one thousand events per year, including, the last four Presidential Inaugurations, and has formed innovative screen-sharing alliances with the Dallas Cowboys, Texas Christian University and Bristol Motor Speedway, while also introducing the world’s largest high-definition mobile screen.
GoVision screens can be seen at Major League Baseball and NBA All Star Games, NCAA Final Fours, the Ryder Cup, and U.S. Open Golf Championships. Moreover, GoVision is the screen provider of the Dallas Cowboys Stadium Plaza, the North Texas Super Bowl XLV Host Committee, University of Oklahoma football, the LPGA Tour and several PGA tournament events.
In 2014, seeking to offer turnkey video graphics and production services to customers, GoVision acquired Graystone Media from LED production industry veteran Josh Echo-Hawk.
Graystone Media was founded in 2007 by Echo-Hawk to meet the varied production needs of Division 1A athletic departments for gameday operations — from content development to staffing, crewing, and equipping. Graystone quickly grew on the West Coast with multiple contracts to provide operational support to many of the teams in the PAC-12.
Rebranded as GoVision Creative Services, the new production arm augmented GoVision’s screen business with the offering of world-class graphics creation services and full production services; including technical producing and directing, crewing, and game day production audits.
Quickly thereafter, GoVision continued to add complimentary business services to its portfolio through the launch of a Permanent Install division in 2014, the acquisitions of Event Cable & Sound (media centers), and Custom Design & Fabrication (fabrication services), and the launch of a groundbreaking, mobile, networked crowd management and emergency messaging LED platform, CrowdLead (www.crowdlead.net) in 2015.
Moreover, in 2016, recognizing an opportunity to revolutionize residential and commercial, large-screen, outdoor viewing experiences, GoVision launched GoVisionTV (www.govisiontv.com), to bring stadium-like LED video screen experiences to homes and businesses.
Due to GoVision’s rapid growth and outstanding reputation in the live events industry; coupled with GoVision’s breadth of products and services, GoVision had been an acquisition target for many sports and live entertainment companies throughout GoVision’s history. In 2016, GoVision was acquired by Learfield Sports; making GoVision an integral part of one of the largest and most respected sports marketing organizations in the world.
