CNN Casts Its Vote for GoVision

Tuesday, 06 November 2012 by

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.

The Dallas Convention & Visitors Bureau is pulling out all the stops to entertain thousands of association executives gathering here this week for the annual meeting of the ASAE. One thing’s for certain: Attendees won’t have any trouble getting a good view of the world-class entertainment, thanks to the giant LED video screens provided by GoVision.

You just knew Mark Cuban would pull out all the stops when his Dallas Mavericks finally earned their first world championship. So it comes as no surprise that when Dirk Nowitzki, Jason Kidd, Jason Terry and the rest of the NBA champions rode through downtown Dallas on their way to the American Airlines Center, the world’s largest mobile high-definition LED screen was there to make certain every fan had a great view of the celebration.

When you wait nearly four decades to celebrate postseason success, much less your first World Series berth, it’s easy to see why you’d want to extend the storybook season as long as possible. Which is why the Texas Rangers hosted a fan-appreciation rally in Arlington just days after losing the 2010 World Series to the San Francisco Giants.

Jimmy Buffett is a big act. His sister, Lucy Buffett, owner of famed LuLu’s at HomePort Marina Restaurant on Alabama’s Gulf shore, is a big custom electronics client.
So when LuLu’s wants a Jimmy Buffett concert simulcast on a big screen, the integrator had better find the biggest screen available. Sundberg called Argyle, Texas-based GoVision, which was able to deliver GoBigger, what it calls “the world’s largest mobile high-definition LED screen,” within a few days. BSUN and GoVision technicians floated the 19-foot by 33-foot unit on a barge just off the dock near LuLu’s.

This was no lazy day in Margaritaville – special accommodations for staging, video, sound and other logistics were made last minute to enable the legendary performer to do what he does best. BSUN Media was contacted, assigned to the job and the resourceful company, willing to jump through hoops, helped pull off an event that, thanks to frenzied alerts on Twitter and other social media, soon drew thousands to LuLu’s.

Another key ingredient was ‘GoBigger” – the world’s largest mobile LED video screen. The massive 19′ x 33′ unit, featuring Daktronics HD-16 LED video technology, was provided by GoVision (www.jumbo.tv), one of the nation’s premier suppliers of turnkey mobile LED units and customized modular LED walls. GoVision’s technicians worked with BSUN Media to float the 53’ trailer-mounted unit on a barge just off the dock – another impressive feat of ingenuity – and integrated the screen into LuLu’s audio and video systems.

Sometimes, you just have to be creative. When tropical storm Alex forced the postponement of a Gulf Shores charity concert to benefit victims of the BP oil spill, LuLu’s at Homeport Marina was left without an act to entertain the large crowds expected on June 30 and July 1. Fortunately, when your name is Lucy Buffett, you’ve got an ace up your sleeve. Lucy convinced her brother, Jimmy Buffett, to make an impromptu, surprise appearance with his Coral Reefer Band at her harbor-side restaurant and bar on June 30.

Groundbreaking ceremonies can be fairly lackluster affairs, especially when the primary visual is a big hole in the earth. But organizers of the official unveiling of Dallas’ Museum Tower – the new centerpiece of the Dallas Arts District – found a way to bring the soon-to-be-iconic structure to life in spectacular fashion: By running graphic simulations of the 42-story building’s construction and artist’s renderings on the world’s largest mobile high-definition LED screen.

This was a job for “GoBigger,” the world’s largest mobile LED screen. The 19’ x 33’ mobile unit, provided by Texas-based rental company GoVision, features Daktronics HD-16 LED video technology and was strategically positioned at the corner of Michigan Avenue and Wacker Drive, not far from the main stage. A second mobile LED unit, the 9’ x 12’ “GoTron,” was stationed further down Michigan.

When you’ve waited nearly half a century to celebrate a Stanley Cup title, you don’t skimp on the festivities. So when the City of Chicago mapped out its parade route for the Blackhawks and their two million elated fans, they knew ordinary “big screens” wouldn’t do. This was a job for “GoBigger,” the world’s largest mobile high-definition LED screen.

Three major events here this month will be broadcast on three of the most technologically advanced varieties of giant high-definition LED screens, ensuring each of the thousands of expected revelers will have a great view of the festivities. The huge Daktronics video screens and related production elements will be provided by GoVision LP (www.jumbo.tv), one of the nation’s premier suppliers of turnkey mobile LED units and customized modular LED walls.
