Daktronics Portable LED Display Takes Centerstage at XLV Countdown
A Daktronics (Brookings, SD) 60-ft.-wide, LED video display, supplied by Argyle, TX-based GoVision, served as the main backdrop for the XLV Coutdown Live from Cowboys Stadium, September 10, hosted by the North Texas Super Bowl Host Committee. With more than 200 stars appearing on stage, nearly 37,000 attendees filled the lower tier of the stadium to experience an intimate view of the festivities.
Corporate Magic, the official event producer of the North Texas Super Bowl XLV Host Committee, enlisted GoVision to construct and provide the LED centerpiece.
Chris Curtis, GoVision’s president, said the supplier of turnkey mobile LED units and customized modular LED walls was asked to provide the center stage display for the event. He said, “By using 90 panels of our Daktronics PST-12HD inventory, we gave attendees seated at floor level an incredible, full-video experience.”
The two-and-a-half hour event began with internationally acclaimed pianist Van Cliburn, who performed the “National Anthem.” The NFL Players Choir followed – featuring 28 retired stars, including local favorites Tim Brown and Rocket Ismail – with a gospel-infused rendition of “America the Beautiful.”
The Daktronics LED display sat at center stage throughout the evening, giving attendees a close look at the stage, Cowboys historic video highlights and finally served as a visually engaging backdrop for Tim McGraw’s performance.
Daktronics PST-12HD panels are also visible on the outside corners of Cowboys Stadium, where eight plaza displays greet guests as they approach the stadium. www.daktronics.com/mobilemodular; www.jumbo.tv.
