Staging Solutions Install Super Bowl ClockSuper Bowl LI between the New England Patriots and Atlanta Falcons, was held at Houston’s NRG Stadium on February 5, 2017. Prior to the game, our friends at Staging Solutions ensured that Houston residents had a great visual of a countdown to the big event by installing four 15′, football shaped Super Bowl countdown clocks around town. 

Staging Solutions, a leading staging production, design and event management company based in Houston, worked with the NFL and the Houston Super Bowl Committee to create four countdown clocks which ran 24/7 for about a year at four locations – NRG park, home of the Texans and home to Super Bowl LI, and also at two major area airports and Houston’s Discovery Green park.

Because the countdown clocks were installed outside, the team at Staging Solutions needed computer hardware that could be counted on to reliably operate in the heat of a Texas summer. Working with our hardware experts, Staging Solutions selected the POC-200 Rugged Compact Fanless Computer. The POC-200 offered the combination of processing, connectivity and operating temperature range (-25 ~ 70C) that the countdown clock installation would need, and fit well within the project budget.
