The FC Edmonton soccer club recently unveiled what its builders call "the largest mobile video display trailer in North America" — a digital signage monstrosity dubbed Titan — according to an announcement from GoVision LP.
Mounted on a 53-foot trailer, the LED screen supplied by Brookings, South Dakota-based Daktronics measures 39 feet wide by 22 feet high. Titan also is equipped with a complete control room with full live production and broadcast capabilities, according to the announcement.
Created by the Custom Design and Fabrication division of Argyle, Texas-based GoVision, the full-service provider of large-scale LED video displays and related services, including production, creative content, custom design, fabrication and installation, Titan made its debut Nov. 22 at Edmonton's Commonwealth Stadium for the Canadian Football League Western Conference Championship Game between the Calgary Stampeders and eventual Grey Cup Champion Edmonton Eskimos.
FC Edmonton, the professional soccer club that plays in the North American Soccer League, commissioned the giant rig along with M31 Design Group, both of which are divisions of The Fath Group, based in Edmonton. The club plans to use Titan primarily as its end zone video board at home games played at Clarke Field, in lieu of a fixed video screen.
When not in use at the stadium, the trailer will be deployed at other sporting events in the Edmonton area (including Eskimos games) for promotional events and tailgate parties. Titan also will be offered to FC Edmonton sponsors for use at their promotional events.
"We're all about 'going bigger' at GoVision, so when FC Edmonton asked us to design and build this trailer, we knew it was going to be a fun project," said Kevin Faciane, partner and vice president of business development at GoVision. "This is exactly the kind of work our Custom Design and Fabrication team specializes in, so we're excited to lay claim to yet another 'largest in North America' title.'"
