TGI to supply Shoc-Trac™ system to CFL
TGI is installing its PS 10 system at two Canadian Football League teams; the Edmonton Eskimos and Calgary Stampeders.
TGI will install its patent-pending 10 millimeter perimeter knock-down LED system for each club. These perimeter LED advertising systems will be strategically installed on the sideline sections adjacent to the football grid and will face the main tv camera so as to maximize on-field advertising opportunities for the teams and their sponsors.
The LED systems utilize Shoc-Trac™ a specially designed knock-down safety system created to meet the high demands of player safety and possible impacts that may occur as players are historically prone to collide with perimeter signage in the CFL.
TGI has been the first company to implement LED perimeter systems into the Canadian Football league; initially with the 2012 Grey Cup Champion Toronto Argonauts and now Edmonton and Calgary will be the second and third clubs to utilize this technology.
TGI has also worked with the Canadian Football League to develop these systems and in addition to providing LED to Toronto, the systems were also utilized in the 100th Grey Cup final game and the 2012 Vanier Cup.
