    A north Texas company is making sure the hundreds of thousands of visitors to Washington will be able to see Monday's inauguration.

    Hundreds of thousands of eyes will be focused on five LED screens Monday at President Obama’s second inauguration.

    GoVision of Argyle will provide the two screens that will flank the stage.
    One is called the "GoBigger" unit, at 627 square feet it’s the world's largest mobile HD screen.
    Three smaller screens will be set up around the national mall.  
    It takes eight workers to put one screen together, crews have spent two weeks setting up for the ceremony.
    For this small company in the business of making big screens, they take pride in their work and it's paid off.
    “In a live event the world doesn't wait for the video screens to work,” Chris Curtis, GoVision’s CEO said. “It’s a critical mission and we're happy to be a part of it."
    The cost of all five screens, $150,000.
    This will be GoVision's third inauguration; the company started setting up the jumbo screens for the ceremony since 2005 for President George W. Bush's second inauguration.
