This Constantia tv installation was an exciting project for us to be able to deliver for one of our clients.
The request from our client appeared to be quite a challenge when we were first asked: “We need a television installed next to the fireplace in our Constantia residence”
At first this appeared that it was going to be quite a challenge. We would have to find a way to turn the television to face the lounge on one side of the fire place and the kitchen on the other side.
After a brief discussion with our client we made the suggestion to mount the television onto a Vogels pull and turn wall bracket. This would place the television flat against the wall when not in use, and have the ability to be pulled away from the wall and turned to either the kitchen or the lounge.
Our client was excited with the solution that we had proposed and approved this for us to proceed.
Included in the installation of the television on a Vogels pull and turn bracket is the DSTV Explora decoder mounted to the back of the television. We dealt with another one of our clients to have a custom manufactured perspex mounting plate to mount the DSTV decoder to. This would reduce the need for us to have to carry out any special cable management as the decoder would have short HDMI cables connecting it to the television.
Our television installation extended to the study, where we installed and connected a 5.1 speaker surround sound system to the new Samsung television that we installed into the study.
The surround sound amplifier was also upgraded to an Integra surround sound AVR. We have also connected the Integra AVR to an Optoma projector for big screen movie watching.
This was our first time carrying out a Constantia TV installation and we are quite happy with it. It is a neat, compact and very usable installation that serves the clients needs very well.
