MCW Renovates the Concept of a Traditional Parade Route

ASHBURN, Va.—MCW today announced it has been awarded an audiovisual solutions contract by the Leading Authorities Speakers Bureau (LAI) as part of the organization’s Washington, D.C. office interior renovation project.

As a major part of the renovation, MCW will be providing a digital signage system based on eleven wall-mounted, LED LCD monitors. Six of these monitors will form a ‘Parade Route’, creating a digital tour from the reception area and leading to a large conference room. These monitors, each with a dedicated media player for digital signage content playback, will display either CATV or digital signage based upon LAI’s needs. MCW will also provide a software-driven control system to facilitate operation of the Parade Route via an iPhone application, featuring a customized interface for quick activation of content.

Additionally, MCW plans to build a twelve-foot-long video wall in the reception area with a combined bezel width of 1.7mm, creating a nearly seamless 5760 x 1080 viewing area. This video wall will also be equipped with a digital signage content playback system, each media player operating in sync with those along the Parade Route.

“MCW engineers have been working closely alongside the LAI team to ensure our design achieves the creative look, feel and functionality they were seeking,” said Michael Burnstein, CEO and co-founder of MCW. “We are confident in the outcome of our designs and look forward to seeing our plans come to life.”

LAI strives to become a leader in the events industry with trending topics, fresh and exciting ideas and a strong creative background. As such, it was only fitting that they should seek updated technology in their work space that would match such a forward-thinking mission. The design also entails the build-out of multiple conference rooms of varying sizes with web conferencing capabilities as well as features unique to the LAI business such as an audio output connection for use as a press feed.
