DIGITAL SIGNAGE MADE EASY:

Digital Signage can take on many looks, depending on your concept of it, your purpose and intention for it as a tool and the budget at your disposal. It can be as simple as filling the screen of your prominently positioned flat screen with a cycle of slides such as Powerpoint or as information filled as watching a broadcast television news channel such as CP24. The latter is a widely used example of DS in waiting rooms, etc. The purist version of DS employs software to remotely feed & update a multi image format of information. If you are interested in jazzing up your foyer without an investment in specialized incoming “feeds” or software and its learning curve, then consider using a multi input, four image, 21 x 9 aspect ratio IPS-LCD screen. IPS stands for in-plane switching in a thin display that has two transistors for each pixel for better viewing angles than TFT-LCDs that use just one. This requires a more powerful backlight, which delivers more accurate colors, and allows the screen to be viewed from a wider angle. Feed it from a pc configured with a 4 output video card and you are in control of a multi – imaged DS screen with wide attention getting appeal. LG is bringing out a 27” and a 29” model this winter. As can be expected, the available sizes will grow quickly.

DETERMINE YOUR AV USE BEFORE BOOKING YOUR MEETING SPACE:

Audio Visual plays a very important role in your meeting or event! Century AV Tech’s can help ensure that the proposed meeting space “works” for the AV setup and production. There are many factors to be taken into consideration. Century AV would like to help simplify that process for you! Follow this link to Century’s “Event Planners AV Checklist” to help keep everything organized during the preparation of your event and to ensure nothing is overlooked. http://www.centuryav.com/docs/AVChecklist.pdf

KEEP YOUR PROJECTOR CLEAN:

Call Century to schedule a Preventative Maintenance cleaning at least annually to avoid the costly and damaging build-up 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.
