Argyle, Texas-based GoVision announced it has been enlisted to provide its giant LED displays to show Pope Francis' address to a joint session of Congress on Sept. 24 to the crowds anticipated to gather outside along the National Mall in Washington, D.C.

As it has for the past three Presidential Inaugurations, GoVision is deploying digital signage for the occasion, in this case providing five massive screens for the historic occasion. A 19-foot-by-33-foot G16 unit and a 17-foot-by-27-foot G12 unit will flank the U.S. Capitol lawn to give the general public a real-time view of the Pope's address. In addition, three 9-foot-by-16-foot LED displays comprising GV6mm ultra-lightweight panels will be positioned on the steps of the Capitol for invited dignitaries and other VIP attendees, the company said.

"One-day events just don't get any bigger than this, so we couldn't be more honored to have been tasked with this incredibly important responsibility," said Chris Curtis, CEO and founder of GoVision L.P., in the announcement. "We know what an enormous undertaking it is to broadcast live video from the grounds of the U.S. Capitol, especially with the entire world watching. But our team is up to the challenge, and we're ready to be a part of history."
