Easy as ABC BillBoard Video, Inc. (Dallas, Texas) has won a contract to design and manufacture a custom LED sign for WLS, the ABC television network in Chicago

The LED sign is a 40-foot tall curving sculpture that will stand on the sidewalk outside of WLS’ new studios facing pedestrian and automotive traffic on downtown Chicago’s historic State Street. Installation is scheduled for June 2005.

The eVidia features live, high-resolution video capabilities with over 4.4 trillion RGB colors and user-friendly software.

TV stations can strategically enhance their local marketing efforts with vibrant colors, motion and state-of-the-art graphics with a visual messaging tool that delivers the coveted stickieness factor to advertising campaigns.”
