GoVision Adds Video Screens for NCAA at Cowboys Stadium

PLSN Staff • Projection Connection News • March 27, 2013

ARLINGTON, TX   – Even with one of the world’s largest LED screens, Cowboys Stadium needed more screens for the 2013 NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament South Regionals, taking place March 29-31. GoVision is constructing and suspending a giant four-sided LED screen directly beneath the iconic “Jerrytron” to allow spectators to view the video boards and scoreboards. The regional is a precursor to the 2014 NCAA Men’s Final Four, also taking place at the stadium.

ARLINGTON, TX   – Who’d have thought you’d need to hang more video screens in the middle of Cowboys Stadium?  Yet that’s exactly what GoVision is doing for the 2013 NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament South Regionals March 29-31. The regional is a precursor to the 2014 NCAA Men’s Final Four, also scheduled for Cowboys Stadium.

Argyle-based GoVision, a supplier of customized modular LED walls and turnkey mobile LED units, is constructing and suspending a giant four-sided LED screen directly beneath the iconic, world-record-sized screen that dominates the stadium’s interior.  The slightly smaller structure will enable fans sitting courtside during the basketball tournament to see the video boards, as well as a scoreboard that will be integrated into the top of the video on each screen. Fans watching at home will also be able to see GoVision’s giant screens.

The modular video wall is comprised of matching 17.8 ft x 40.4 ft screens paired with twin 15.1 ft x 18.6 ft screens, all constructed out of Panasonic Impact 8mm LED panels. The Panasonic tiles offer image clarity, high resolution, wide viewing angles and 6000-nit brightness, making them suited for indoor and outdoor applications.

“With the Final Four headed to Arlington next year, GoVision is ensuring that every fan in the stadium can have the ultimate viewing experience, including those sitting down by the court,” said Chris Curtis, CEO of GoVision, LP.  “The LED structure we’re building is huge by any standards, but will be especially eye-popping when it’s hanging just below the granddaddy of them all.”

GoVision is no stranger to Cowboys Stadium, having formed a partnership with the team in 2009 to incorporate the LED screens stationed in the outside plazas into its rental inventory.  GoVision removes the screens when not in use for Cowboys games, takes them to events across the country, re-installs them and shares the revenue with the Cowboys.
