“Summer is on its way”

As many of our clients are returning to Cape Town and scheduling service calls we have been busy maintaining and doing upkeep on our installations. This is the perfect time to do so before family and friends arrive for the summer holidays.
If you would like to schedule a service call, respond to this email and I would be happy to arrange a suitable time.

Television installation – iMod Digital – 23 September 2015

We recently carried out a television installation for iMod Digital in their boardroom. The request from companies director, Christopher Mills, was simple and straight-forward;

The board room installation was to be as neat as possible, hiding any cabling required for the television installation in the best possible way.
The ability to screen share from the office Apple computers was a high priority.

To ensure that we met the television installation requirements, we installed a Samsung 40″ high definition television on a flush mount wall bracket, with neat cable trunking providing power to the television.

Our approach to screen share from the office Apple computers to the television installation was to install an Apple TV, this would be strapped to the television bracket, hiding it from site, making it completely functional as an “Airplay” display.

The added benefit of extending an Apple computers display over airplay is to present important information over slideshow, or to stream any content from the internet to the television.

The television installation was a complete success, meeting the requirements and expectations of Christopher. He was kind enough to leave the following Google review about our installation:

“We had Mirror Edge Networks do an installation at our home for our home cinema as well as at our offices for our boardroom and both times Morgan and the team were fantastic. Highly recommended.”

We are really proud that we were able to meet Christophers expectation with this boardroom television installation.

Thank you to Christopher for sending this photograph of the board room television installation while the team at iMod Digital were taking some time off to enjoy the rugby.

 

High Definition Cabling Installation – 22 September 2015

In the centre of our installation in Camps Bay lies a high definition video distribution backbone.

We are implementing a technology called HDBaseT. This technology allows us to distribute high definition video content over a CAT6 cable that is installed to each television.
In our equipment rack, we will be installing an HD Matrix, a description for an HD Matrix would be:

“A video switching device that receives high definition input connections in, which has the ability to output the input signals to one or many high definition outputs.”

Bishops Court Fibre – 14 September 2015

While we have posted about the rollout Fibre optic internet in Bishops Court in February this year over here: Bishops Court Fibre

We have visited a clients property in Bishops Court today and run some tests for him on his newly updated fibre internet. He has opted for the 100mb fibre line.

Bishops Court Fibre speed 089

This is an example of what the speed is like. This type of speed will allow you to download and watch any movies or television series available on Apple TV, stream from services like Netflix, or play music from any online music streaming service without any worry of delays or interruptions.

If you would like to know more information about the installation that is involved with this type of internet, get in contact with us, we would be happy to help.
