GoVision Acquires Leading Content Provider Graystone Media
Cutting-edge graphics and production expertise adds to GoVision’s live-event arsenal
ARGYLE, TX (October 24, 2014) – In a bold move to provide an even more comprehensive suite of services to its growing client list, GoVision LP announced today that it has acquired Graystone Media, a leading provider of graphics, production services and live-event content for large video screens and event venues.
Headquartered in Portland, OR, Graystone Media was founded in 2007 by Josh Echo-Hawk, who recognized over a decade ago that when customers make a major investment in video displays, they need great content to generate a return on their investment.
“No matter how technically advanced your screens are – and GoVision clearly has the best equipment in the business – they’re only as good as the content that’s fed to them,” said Echo-Hawk. “We have worked very hard to be the best at developing compelling content. Our clients want graphics that wow the audience, but it’s more than that. We strive to engage sponsors, create a revenue stream and execute with cutting-edge technology. We love to be creative, and we take great care of our clients. Chris and his team at GoVision are the best at what they do, and I’m proud that they feel the same about us.”
Like GoVision, Graystone Media has extensive experience partnering with sports and event properties at the collegiate and professional levels, concert tours and other live entertainment events. Graystone also provides staffing, production/technical management for clients, including managing in-venue presentation for athletic departments. Clients include Arizona State, Washington State and various other athletic venues.
“We’ve worked with Graystone for some time, so we’ve seen firsthand how they add value to our video screens,” said Chris Curtis, founder and CEO of GoVision, one of the nation’s premier suppliers of customized modular LED walls and turnkey mobile LED units. “It just made sense for us to join forces and capitalize on our mutual strengths. Josh and his team’s expertise will enable us to provide even more creative content and production services to our clients, while our national footprint and world-class sales team will expand their reach even more broadly.”
The transaction gives GoVision another physical presence on the West coast, following its February acquisition of the assets of Los Angeles-based InnoVision Media Group.
“GoVision’s customer-focused perspective is what’s made us stand out over the years, and it’s a philosophy we share with Graystone,” said Curtis. “That’s one of the many reasons I’m so pleased to be joining forces. With our screens and their content, this team is going to be awfully tough to beat!”
