  With over 18,000 participants, the 2006 Tarrant County Race for the Cure® is the area's largest charity 5K. GoVision played an instrumental role in both the race and the Survivor Ceremony.

"It was great," said Susan Gaston, executive director. "GoVision did a nice job. It takes about 30 minutes for people to get across the start-line, and it was really nice for them to be able to see themselves on the screen as they come across the start line. We also had their cameras at the end of the race so that people could see the participants come across the finish line on the big screen."

"At the Survivor Ceremony, all of the surviors come on stage and are handed carnations, and there is singing. All of that was shown on the big screen. It definitely took our race to the next level by having the big screen."

With GoBig's ability to showcase special messages and commercials, Gaston looks forward to working with sponsors to underwrite its use in future years.

"If we had more time I could have found some sponsors. Now that people have seen it in action, we should be able to sell some short commercials to run on it, which would be great."
  A record number entries competed in the World's Original Indoor Rodeo at the 110th Southwestern Exposition and Livestock Show in Fort Worth, Texas. The action-packed event featured cowboys and cowgirls competing in events such as tie-down roping, steer wrestling, bareback, bull riding, saddle bronc, team roping and barrel racing.

This year, GoVision installed custom-built screens inside Will Rogers Coliseum that allowed rodeo fans to view the competitions with an up-close perspective live as well as relive the fast-paced action in video replays.

"The experience with GoVision was very good," noted Brad Barnes of the Southwestern Exposition and Livestock Show. "They were very professional. The screens provided our rodeo fans with exceptional clarity and provided them a good quality product."

"This was the first-time time we have used them. They provide replay and information to our rodeo patrons. We also did some sponsor screens. Overall, we were very pleased."
  Sometimes you just can't plan for Mother Nature.

"On the Friday before the tournament, our main manual scoreboard on hole #18 blew down in a storm," said Jon Drago, Operations Director for the Byron Nelson Tournament. "We were in a rush and GoVision was able to get a screen in. The screen worked out very well."

The Nelson had used a GoVision screen in their Pavilion area the past couple of tournaments, but quickly discovered the differences in utilizing a screen at the finishing hole.

"We've had one in the pavilion area, which is a gathering place," continued Drago. "That one served itself well. We kind of knew what we needed there too, with more of an emphasis on entertainment and video."

"We basically used it as a scoreboard on #18. The fans there are much more interested in golf and following what is going on. There are some things you can't do, like show video while the players are playing. The content itself, we hope to make better in 2007."

"GoVision's customer service was outstanding. We've developed a great relationship and any suggestions we came up with were handled very well."
  At the 2006 Victoryfest, a party celebrating the Big 12 basketball tournament, GoBig was once again the centerpiece of the action in the Dallas West End.

The "Rumble Before the Dance" event provided an opportunity for fans of all ages to be a part of the action with tournament watching parties; Big 12 spirit bands, cheerleaders and school spirit rallies; an interactive games pavilion; and other live entertainment.

GoBig provided fans with all the live action from every game as well as entertaining features and special programming.

"GoBig brings an entertainment element as well as provides added value for our sponsors," said Greg Schooley, Executive Director of The West End Association.

"We did appreciate the creativity of the GoVision technical crew in showing creative pieces of entertainment between our requested programming."
  GoVision was recently named to the 2006 Dallas 100 Awards as one of Dallas area's 100 fastest growing, most dynamic privately held companies. The Award was received at a ceremony and dinner held at the Morton Myerson Symphony Center.
