Pete's Big TVs Debuts MK7 on Country Concert '12

PetePete's Big TVs recently added to its rental inventory 1,200 panels of digiLED MK7 video screens, using 350 of the panels for the first time on the Country Concert ‘12 in Ft. Loramie, OH.

Daytime concerts in the hot summer sun can pose problems for video screens. But the digiLED MK7 provide a solution, says Project Manager Guy Benjamin of Pete's Big TVs.

“The MK7 are brighter than the midday sun,” he explains. “The digiLED MK7 are 6500 nits in brightness. They have all the features of the 7mm MC7 - which are popular because of their no Radio Frequency interference - except that the screens are not transparent, which makes them twice as bright. They are the perfect solution for the daytime to nighttime concerts.”

Pete's Big TVs has supplied the Country Concert, a music and camping festival, for four non-consecutive years. Held this year July 5-7 on a 500-acre area of Hickory Hills Lake, performers included Blake Shelton, Zac Brown Band, Eric Church, Sara Evans, Luke Bryan and more.

To bring the audience up close to the action, especially for the RV campers farther away, 350 MK7 panels were fashioned into five screens for several areas: the largest screen hung above the main stage, with a smaller screen in the VIP area and three screens in the outfield.

Pete's Big TVs' Matt Ellar was the main LED tech working the gig.

“We were happy to again work with Country Concert,” Benjamin said. “We were also happy with the performance of the MK7, as was the concert promoter Jim Prenger, who has made mention of this year's video screens on his website.”
