Rangers Rally Around GoVision Portable LED Screens
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.
And at the center of it all – offering hundreds of fans in attendance a larger-than-life view of the participating players and coaches, as well as highlights from throughout the magical season – were massive LED screens provided by GoVision, based in Argyle, TX.
GoVision, a supplier of turnkey mobile LED units and customized modular LED walls, provided three huge screens to the festivities, including its massive 19’x33-foot “GoBigger” unit, what the company calls the world’s largest mobile high-definition LED screen, featuring Daktronics HD-16 LED video technology. The company also brought its 9’x16-foot GoBig and 9×12-foot GoTron units, to make sure every fan had a front-row-worthy view of the celebration.
“Like everyone else across North Texas, we were riveted by the Rangers’ postseason run, and absolutely thrilled to watch them compete in their first World Series,” says Chris Curtis, CEO of GoVision. “So being invited to play a role in their end-of-season rally is a real honor for our company. Even though it was a last-minute thing, everything went extremely smoothly and our screens seemed to be a big hit with the fans and players alike.”
During the series, one of GoVision’s “GoBig” units was leased to CBS Radio for a game-watching party at J. Gilligan’s Bar & Grill in Arlington. The screen was a hit there as well.
“Our fans have carried us throughout this magical season, so we wanted to do something extra special to express our appreciation to them for their amazing support,” saysJohn Hardin, Vice President, Event Operations & Security for the Rangers. “One of the best ways we thought we could do that is to make sure that everyone that came out tonight had an awesome view of the action, so we’re really grateful to GoVision for making that happen, all on pretty much a moment’s notice.”
