The company will provide 11 LED screens to support the inauguration of Donald Trump as the 45th President of the United States. The inaugural ceremonies will take place on Friday, the 20th of January, in the U.S. Capitol in Washington, D.C.
Total over 200 square meters of LED screens of mobile and modular design will be located around the Capitol to enable viewers to enjoy the ceremonies. According to a press release, the mobile screens are comprised of 10mm CF (carbon fiber) tiles, and the modular LED screens are configured from 6mm tiles. The video signal from the U.S. Capitol to each of the screens will be sent by the wireless transmitters, which are also supplied by the GoVision’s team.
“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, the company's founder, and CEO. “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.”
The screens will be arrayed throughout the Capitol as follows:
U.S. Capitol Steps – two G16 mobile units of 4.8m by 10m each
