Century Audio Visual - Be Tech Savvy

Be Tech Savvy #23

Century AV - Thursday, April 01, 2010

Audio Visual Industry "News of Interest" from Century Audio Visual – #23 Apr. 2010.



Keep yourself updated; “Be Tech Savvy” with a little help from Century Audio Visual.




Sharp’s proprietary, four primary colour technology enables more than a trillion colours to be displayed for more sparkling golds, Caribbean blues and sunflower yellows, setting a standard for clearer, fast-moving video.

This display employs a four colour filter, for the first time in the industry, that adds the colour Y (yellow) to the three colours of R (red), G (green), and B (blue). This combination expands the colour gamut, faithfully rendering nearly all colours that can be discerned with the human eye. Four primary colour technology enables the display to reproduce colours that have been difficult to portray using conventional LCD displays, such as the golden yellow colour of brass instruments.

The LED backlight offers dramatic reduction in energy consumption compared to conventional fluorescent-backlight LCD TVs.



Invoices from Century Audio Visual are now reflecting the Ontario Electronic Stewardship fees (OES). These are pass through fees levied on invoice to us by our manufacturers / suppliers and re-invoiced at same value free of taxation to our customers. The fees are set by provincial standard and are collected to offset recycling costs for electronics. The approved Revised (Phase 1 and 2) Plan addresses additional materials such as phones, cameras and audiovisual equipment, and commenced as of April 1, 2010. A complete list of fees for currently 44 listed electronic products is available at:

As an example; a flat display at 45” or greater has a fee of $26.25 and a DVD unit has a fee of $2.75.



Call Century to schedule a Preventative Maintenance cleaning at least annually to avoid the costly and damaging buildup of dirt and resulting heat. These elements can damage your projector over time and shorten lamp life. A small investment once a year to clean an item will pay dividends in prolonging the useful life of your equipment and put value back in your warranty. Century Audio Visual will provide a complete record of service performed and a recommended follow up procedure based on system usage factors.
