Televisions ... Past, present, and future

Sunday, 13 November 2016 6:16:45 pm Australia/Melbourne

It’s been a long time between drinks for us and mainstream Televisions …

There was a glorious epoch in the early 2000s where we had on display simultaneously Plasma Televisions from Pioneer, Fujitsu, Hitachi, NEC, and Marantz along with the first Generation Sharp Aquos consumer LCD panels.

When I unlocked the shop in the morning after they had been left on at night a blast of heated ozone laden air would surge by me onto Lygon St. These Plasma TVs were power hungry high voltage devices and vengefully dissipated their waste heat into the confined space of our store.

The Fairhaven pole house

Wednesday, 26 October 2016 6:00:00 am Australia/Melbourne

 

The Pole House is a distinctive part of the landscape on the Great Ocean Road here in Victoria. One of Australia's smartest people bought it when it finally came up for sale by the original pylon engineer who had built it initially in the 1960s. Like many people who actually do something really useful for society this gentleman is incredibly modest and unassuming but has an unbridled love for good music and video.

We were called in at the early stages to conceptualise and iterate the audio visual systems and automation. Peculiar to this residence is the fact that the Pole House itself is available for lease to holidaymakers and needs to be able to operate both independantly and contiguously with the new primary residence that has been constructed on the hillside behind it.

The home systems are operated via Control4, this automation product that Carlton Audio Visual has been purveying and installing since 2004 is now Australia's leading home integration system for combining all of your lighting, AV control, HVAC and other functions with elegance and simple accesability.
