CNN Casts Its Vote for GoVision
Jumbo LED screens featured at election-viewing events in Boston, Chicago
BOSTON (November 6, 2012) – The eyes of America will be glued to their television sets tonight as election results trickle in from across the nation. Millions of households will tune to CNN, which is supplementing its wall-to-wall coverage by hosting election-viewing events in Chicago and Boston, the respective home bases of President Barack Obama and Gov. Mitt Romney.
As has become the custom at such high-profile events, GoVision’s state-of-the-art LED screens will be front and center. CNN hired Texas-based GoVision, one of the nation’s premier suppliers of customized modular LED walls and turnkey mobile LED units, to provide and install its giant screens at both free public viewing events to ensure that the anticipated large crowds will have an excellent view of the progressive vote counts and CNN’s award-winning coverage throughout the night.
In Boston, GoVision has built a 22’ x 40’ modular screen comprised of Panasonic 8mm tiles and mounted it onto a truss structure at the historic Faneuil Hall Marketplace. The mammoth screen offers true HD thanks to its massive pixel count, and will be frequently visible during CNN’s “Election Night in America” coverage, which begins at 4:00 PM EST.
For the network’s Chicago event, GoVision is providing its 19’ x 33’ “GoBigger” unit, the largest high-definition mobile LED screen in the world. The truck-mounted video screen will be located along Randolph Street in front of the James R. Thompson Center Plaza in downtown Chicago. It, too, will be a regular sight throughout CNN’s “Election Night in America” broadcast.
GoVision is working with Production Design Associates of Charleston, SC, which is handling all of the logistics around the election-viewing events.
“We have been privileged to work with a large number of very important events, including the last two Presidential Inaugurations; but when it comes right down to it, few things are as historically significant as electing a U.S. President,” said Chris Curtis, GoVision’s president. “We’re proud that CNN has entrusted a portion of their election night coverage to us, and our team is ready to do its part to ensure that their audiences are treated to a memorable experience.”
