GoVision Screens Braved the Elements at 2011 Tim Hortons NHL Heritage Classic

GoVision's massive LED wall, ribbon boards perform flawlessly in Calgary’s winter wonderland during 2011 Tim Hortons NHL Heritage Classic.

Calgary, Canada, March 02, 2011 --( Add GoVision to the short list of die-hards that deliver even when snow or ice or other brutal elements stand in the way. Exhibit A: The 2011 Tim Hortons NHL Heritage Classic, held February 20 at Calgary’s McMahon Stadium, with bone-chilling temperatures in the single digits.

GoVision, one of North America’s premier suppliers of turnkey mobile LED units and customized modular LED walls, was hired by BaAM Productions to construct a massive 34-foot x 60-foot video wall inside McMahon Stadium to give fans a larger-than-life view of the outdoor action between the Montreal Canadiens and host Calgary Flames. The giant screen also offered clear views of the high-profile musical acts featured during the annual “celebration of hockey’s Canadian roots.”

The video wall was assembled from the same Daktronics PST-12HD panels installed in the outdoor plazas of Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas. GoVision dismantled the screens immediately after Super Bowl XLV and shipped them to Calgary for the Heritage Classic.

The Argyle, TX-based company also installed LED ribbon boards around the stadium to add more value and visibility for the event’s sponsors. The 3-foot-high Daktronics PST-12HD boards were similar to the configuration GoVision used at the 2010 NBA All Star Game in Dallas, and the NCAA Final Four in Indianapolis.

“The Heritage Classic was quite an undertaking, which required our on-site team and our equipment to perform under the most extreme conditions,” said Chris Curtis, CEO of Argyle, TX-based GoVision, L.P. “But, as always, they rose to the challenge and delivered flawlessly while an entire nation was watching.”
