May 25, 2012 – Panasonic Eco Solutions North America and GoVision announced
today that they are joining forces in the LED video screen rental market
to expand the modular LED board business. As the first step, GoVision
has entered into a long-term agreement to effectively double its rental
inventory of state-of-the-art modular LED video screens, recently taking
a delivery of 2,400 square feet of Impact 8 and 1,070 square feet of
Impact 10 surface mount diode tiles. The deal makes GoVision one of the
first companies in the industry to offer a true 8-millimetre outdoor LED video screen
product as part of its rental package.

LED video screen tiles or boards are used in large-scale commercial
and public outdoor events, such as concerts, corporate meetings, arts
and music festivals, and sporting events to help the spectators connect with the main characters and view the action on stage
from long distances. They are effective in the rental market because of
their image quality, mobility and ease of setup.

“Our deal with Panasonic makes us an even more formidable player in
the LED rental business, and gives us the ability to deliver the
absolute highest-quality video panels to events of virtually any size,”
said Chris Curtis, CEO of GoVision.

Panasonic’s inventory of LED tiles offers excellent image clarity,
high resolution, wide-viewing angles and exceptional 6000-nit
brightness, qualities that make them ideal for any indoor or outdoor
application. Other highlights of the Impact 8 and 10 panels include:
state-of-the-art, 3-in-1 SMD; pixel-by-pixel colour calibration; extremely
high resolution and vivid colour saturation; versatile indoor and
outdoor use; single kingpin and side-latching precision cabinets; black-faced LED packages; and front and rear servicing.

“The LED tiles represent significant advances in technology that will
improve the spectator experience at every event in which they are
integrated,” said Jim Doyle, president of Panasonic Eco Solutions North
America. “Panasonic will work closely with GoVision to offer spectators
and audience members at large and small public events the opportunity
to have a more enjoyable viewing experience as they will be able to
better see and engage in the event, even at great distances.”

GoVision is one of the nation's premier suppliers of customized
modular LED walls and turnkey mobile LED units. Along with its massive
array of Daktronics PST-12HD tiles, the new additions give GoVision the
two largest rental inventories of the highest-resolution outdoor LEDs in
the industry. It also represents the largest colour-matching common
inventory in the business. To ensure quality, each of the tiles in
GoVision’s inventory is housed in a side-latching cabinet that ensures
correct alignment every time without visible seams or flawed image
quality.

GoVision is staging and rigging the panels for use at the 2012 US
Open Tennis Championships in New York this summer. Panasonic is the
official consumer electronics and imaging sponsor of the 2012 US Open
Championships. Following that global event, GoVision will transport the
tiles to Chicago for the 2012 Ryder Cup at Medinah Country Club.
