11 massive LED screens positioned strategically across Capitol for Trump ceremony
WASHINGTON, DC – For the fourth consecutive time, Argyle, Texas-based GoVision has been tasked with providing the massive LED screens for a solemn and historic ceremony celebrating the peaceful transition of power.
When Donald Trump is sworn in as the 45th President of the United States on Friday, Jan. 20, he will be flanked by two 19’ x 33’ G16 mobile LED screens positioned on the steps of U.S. Capitol. Nine additional mobile and modular screens will be set-up in strategic locations around the Capitol to enable the expected crowd of more than 1 million to enjoy a larger-than-life view of the ceremony.
Each of the state-of-the-art mobile screens provided by Learfield company GoVision is comprised of 10mm CF (carbon fiber) tiles, the lightest LED panels in the world. The modular LED screens are configured from 6mm tiles, which are also ultra-lightweight and offer extremely high resolution both indoors and out. GoVision’s team will likewise supply the wireless transmitters that send the video signal from the U.S. Capitol to each of the screens.
“We will be taking our screens to more than 1,000 events across North America this year, but none carries more historical significance, or will be viewed by more people worldwide, than a Presidential Inauguration,” said Chris Curtis, founder and CEO of GoVision, a premier, full-service provider of large-scale LED video displays and related services, including production, creative content, custom design, fabrication and installation. “We’re honored to be entrusted with this extraordinary responsibility for the fourth time, and we look forward to providing the huge crowds with a front-row seat to the ceremony.”
A total of 11 GoVision screens will be arrayed throughout the Capitol as follows:
U.S. Capitol Steps – two G16 19’x33’ mobile units
Reflecting Pool – two 9’x16’ GV6mm modular screens mounted on scaffolding
3rd Street – 9’x16’ GV6 modular screen mounted on scaffolding
Peace Circle – G6 9’x16’ mobile unit
Garfield Circle – G6 9’x16’ mobile unit
Grant Memorial – two G4 9’x16’ mobile units
Opposite side of U.S. Capitol – two G4 9’x16’ mobile units
GoVision is providing several additional LED screens across the city for the Trump Inauguration, including a 14’x24’ G10 mobile LED unit for a private party at the Canadian Embassy.
“In addition to doing the three previous Presidential Inaugurations, we brought our 6mm LED panels to the U.S. Capitol for the 2015 Papal visit,” said Curtis. “Each time, the security and logistical challenges have been monumental, but my team is the best in the business, and they’ve proven time and again that they can meet virtually any challenge thrown their way. I couldn’t be more proud of them.”
