To honor individuals who have made outstanding contributions to improve the lives of children, Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) hosted its 23rd Annual Awards of Excellence celebration in Rosemont, IL in October. In addition to the awards presentation, the Awards of Excellence celebration included a dinner and lively entertainment by actor and comedian Bernie Mac.

?The annual event presents three prestigious awards to individuals selected from across the globe. Past recipients have included such personalities and dignitaries as Paul Newman, Her Majesty Queen Noor of Jordan, former First Lady Betty Ford, former U.S. President Jimmy Carter and many others.

The event is produced for RMHC by McDonalds Creative Services division, and for the 13th consecutive year they turned to Lightswitch for lighting design; long time McDonalds vendor Billy Nolan and TLC to provide equipment; and Andy Warfel for scenic design.

This year the producers charged the design team to bring a new, fresh look to the production without increasing the budget for the fund raising event. Lightswitch principal John Featherstone explains the next step, When I learned from owner Billy Nolan that TLC was investing in Martin LC Series panels, I immediately felt this was the perfect solution, Featherstone said. The attractive price point and almost absurdly easy installation the LCs offer meant we could include scenic LED video technology in the show without busting the budget.

The LC Series is a semi-transparent, modular system of LED panels, ideal for displaying video and images. Andy Warfel arranged 12 LC Series panels in a spaced, angled array, backed with Atomic Design Pillow Walls to take advantage of the LCs translucent design. Using Martin Maxedia media servers, Featherstone and programmer Dennis Connors were able to provide the producers a vast array of visual options.

This was my first opportunity to use the LC panels in a show environment, and I couldnt be happier with the results, enthused Featherstone. The panels gave the show a totally new look, and the producers were delighted. I think the LC line is perfect for projects looking for an affordable, easy to install LED video panel solution.
