Outoor LED Screen
Client : Sundt Design
Street Communication was proud to work with Sundt construction on the MACC outdoor LED display sitting in the center of El Paso, Texas. Sundt needs no introduction in the US. Since the year 1890, Sundt has been the largest and most diverse employee-owned general contractors in the nation. Making their mark all over the country, Sundt has especially created a name for themselves in Texas.
Their El Paso project was named the MACC (Mexican American Cultural Center) project. Sundt has taken full control of this project from A-Z, while sub contracting El Paso’s best. This center is said to stand in the heart of El Paso, and opened for all to visit. This location is special, and includes a library, a recreational center, and the Mexican American Art exhibit.
Context / environment : LED display for the City of El Paso
For the MACC project, Street Communication has been contacted by Sundt Construction to create an outdoor LED display for the City of El Paso.
The LED display is to sit on the side the MACC building, and is set to display movies and films. There will be a multi-leveled surface with astro turf and seating for anyone wanting to watch.
Solution to install a indoor LED Screen
The client settled on a Standard Outdoor Usurface III P8 LED Display.
The screen was on the facade of the building. The objective was to provide a full-turnkey solution for the exterior side of the MACC building.

Challenge to install last minute
Street Communication has similar enquiries every week. This last minute project was not a challenge for us. We have technicians available day and night for our installations.
The only challenge for the client was to adapt their pre-prepared video contents so it fits perfectly on our LED screen, using the screen resolution and size in order to have no distorted video content on a screen that had no 16/9 ratio.
Impact : Install a big screen
As of now, Sundt construction still remains as the largest mutli-employee owned contractors in the nation. With thousands of projects under their belt, it was a pleasure to work hand in hand with their team. Their professionalism did not go unnoticed, and because of that, the MACC location will have their own 50 sqm LED Screen for all to enjoy.
