GoVision Doubles Fleet of Mobile Units
GoVision debuted its second mobile unit, dubbed GO BIG 2, on March 27 at a private reception held at the Texas Motor Speedway. GO BIG 2, valued at $1 million, mirrors the first GO BIG unit, featuring a complete on-board control room and a 9 foot by 16 foot BARCO DLite LED screen, all built within a 40-foot custom truck.

The addition of the second truck will allow GoVision to continue to service its rising number of customers in increasingly dispersed areas of the country. The truck has already been busy, appearing at the Texas Motor Speedway, a Boston Institute of Contemporary Art exhibit and the Easter service at Fellowship Church in Grapevine, Texas.
GoVision Kicks Off Partnership with Texas Motor Speedway
GoVision is now bringing the excitement of Texas Motor Speedway to its fans in an even bigger way through a partnership between the two companies. Govision's inaugural broadcast of the racing action was during RPM Week-Texas, March 27-30. Both GO BIG units were strategically placed at the race track and the Dirt Track to give the fans a big picture of their favorite cars and drivers.

"This new service is a great attraction for our fans," said Eddie Gossage, speedway general manager. "GoVision provides a state-of-the-art presentation that is second to none in the industry. This just adds to the great racing atmosphere on race day."

Both GO BIG units will return to the speedway for the June 5-7 Indy Racing League and NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series races. The jumbo screen video trucks will also be on site for the season finale races during the Oct. 10-12 Chevy 500k IRL weekend, as well as the sprint car races at the Dirt Track that weekend.
GoVision Delivers the World's Largest Mother's Day
Card to Wives, Mothers of Soldiers
During the war in Iraq, GoVision wanted to do something to support the effort by helping those still here at home. In order to do that, the company recorded Mother's Day messages from approximately 20 soldiers in the 1st Calvary Division of the U.S. Army, based at Fort Hood, Texas, for their wives and mothers, all of whom live in the Dallas-Fort Worth area of Texas. The cards were "delivered" to the women at a special reception held in their honor on May 11, where the cards were displayed on one GO BIG unit's 16 foot by 9 foot LED screen. Tears flowed freely from many of the wives and mothers in attendance at the reception as they heard the words from their own soldiers as well as those from other soldiers in their loved one's division. Each card recipient received her own tape of the cards as part of a Mother's Day gift basket.
GoVision's Go Big Truck Becomes Moving Art Exhibit
LED screens have become a form of art. One of GoVision's GO BIG units was part of a moving "artwork" during the Vita Brevis program at The Institute of Contemporary Art (ICA) in Boston, May 13-15. The screen was used to display Remedy, a new performance and video work by award-winning choreographer Ann Carlson in collaboration with Mary Ellen Strom.

For the first half of the day on May 13, GO BIG drove around the Longwood Medical Area of Boston, displaying the video as it drove. It then sat stationary outside the ICA for the second half of the day. On May 14 and 15, the GO BIG unit was set up in Copley Square, where members of the public were invited to work with Carlson to create on-the-spot portraits.

"GoVision's mobile unit is the perfect gallery for Carlson's Remedy, which was commissioned for our ICA/Vita Brevis program," said Jill Medvedow, James Sachs Plaut director of the ICA.
