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.


Television upgrade – Clifton Apartment

When discussions began in January to plan for the upgrade of a clients Clifton Apartment to the new DSTV over Fibre Video system from Smart Village, special planning was needed to make sure that we could meet the expectations of our client. As well as making sure that the system functioned intuitively and delivered high quality picture to the three viewing environments of the apartment.

The process began when discussions with Smart Village and a visit to the apartment confirmed access to the required Fibre. (More information about the Fibre installation can be found here: Fibre Optic Installation.)

Next we had to decide on the type of televisions to use in the upgrade. Mirror Televisions were considered, but it was decided that as this apartment is not occupied full time a an alternate solution would be more appropriate. The stunning Samsung Series 8 55″ LED Televisions were my recommendation for this installation; replacing the existing Panasonic Plasma screen monitors. These 55″ LED Televisions are exactly the same size as the old Panasonic 50″ Plasmas.

We started with replacing this Plasma in the master bedroom.

One of my intentions was to make the television viewable from the bed as well as from the bath. This meant checking that the new Vogels Pull & Rotate bracket was the correct choice for the Samsung LED in the master bedroom, I had to take a quick picture to confirm this.
