10 things you don’t know about the Television



Television or TV is one technology that has remained steadfast in this ever-changing time.

Screens have come in all forms and sizes and new platforms have come out as other options for entertainment, education, news, and advertising. For example, both local and foreign series can now be accessed through video on demand programs like Netflix, iFlix, and HOOQ. There are also free streaming sites online where people can watch videos aside from the popular Youtube.

In the midst of these innovations 96.6 percent of Filipinos are still tune in to their televisions daily in 2016, according to TV audience measurement provider Kantar Media. While digital media and improving internet access has made it easier and more accessible for audiences to stream shows online, the survey also revealed that we spend longer durations--particularly 3.7 hours in average--watching our favorite programs on TV.


TV Trivia

Here are some interesting things you might not aware of about our dear television

1. The word ‘television’ was accepted the English language in 1907 but it took forty years for someone to figure it out of using the abbreviation TV in 1948.

2. TV was introduced in the late 1920s in experimental forms but did not sell well. It only became a regular fixture in homes, businesses, and institutions after WWII.

3. Franklin D. Roosevelt was the first president to be televised, in ceremonies opening the New York World's Fair in April 1939.

4. In the 50s, the television served as the primary medium for influencing public opinion.

5. During the mid-1960s, color broadcasting was introduced in the US and other developed countries.

6. Media players such as Betamax (1975), VHS tape (1976), DVDs (1997), and high-definition Blu-ray Discs (2006) enabled viewers to watch prerecorded material or movies at home.

7. Did you know that the iconic Wayfarer sunglasses went almost extinct in the early 1980s, until Ray-Ban signed a product placement deal incorporating them into 60 films and television shows a year.

8. The music channel MTV first aired at 12:01 AM on August 1, 1981. The first video was "Video Killed the Radio Star" by the Buggles.

9. Digital television transmissions greatly increased in popularity at the end of the first decade of the 2000s.

10. It is considered that British show Top Gear is the most watched television show with an estimated 350 million weekly viewers in 170 countries.


Creating moments, strengthening bonds

For some, watching television might be a simple habit. But for others, it is a chance to break free and relax from their hectic lifestyles or strengthen bonds with people they share the experience with. It can also be a form of a healthy escape, too, where one can learn about new things and explore other cultures in the comfort of their homes.

These are just some of the things Devant feels passionate for. The renowned television provider advocates to create moments with its 7:30PM TV Get Together (G2G) campaign which encourages everyone to spend time with their friends and family by bonding over their favorite shows.

In line with their aim to bring people together, Devant has teamed up with Marco Polo Ortigas and Craig Lines for an exclusive screening of the film The Owner” last August 8. The event, featured stunning visuals using Devant’s lineup of Ultra HD televisions and surround sound system, proved that a simple hobby like sharing a movie can be made more meaningful and memorable with other people.


Turning hobbies to meaningful experiences

The Owner” is a film that follows the journey of a lost backpack around the world. The international feature film showcases the many mysteries of the bag’s travels, while showing the intersecting lives of the fascinating characters it got in touch with throughout the story. “The Owner” is a true masterpiece with a story that spans five continents collaborated on by a whopping number of 25 filmmakers.

The movie is a perfect example of a work of art that gives TV-watching a deeper meaning. It encourages people to think and consider, and it also gives everyone the chance to be open to things that could enrich their lives and mindsets through their TV experience.

This is why Devant has made it their promise to deliver a richer entertainment experience through their advanced TV technology. The role of the television in the lives of people are more punctuated than ever, and the brand aims to use technology to keep in step with the many changes in the consumption of this form of media with the hopes of making it friendlier and more positioned towards creating memorable experiences between people.

A brief history behind the guitar pedal technology



Here’s one article that every guitarist should read especially those who love to use a guitar pedal in every performance.

Do you know that guitar effect pedals, which come in many different shapes and sizes, were first commercially produced standalone as effects unit in 1948 branded as DeArmond Trem Trol 800. Bo Diddley was the first artist credited to have used it. The gadget produced a tremolo by passing an instrument’s electrical signal through a water-based electrolytic fluid.

In 1958, the latest guitar pedals are the WEM COPICAT Super IC-300 which makes delay and echo and the DeArmond 610 which was used by the legendary Jimmy Page on Brenda Lee’s “Is It True.”

For years later, the band Ventures was the first to use homemade distortion fuzz box for their song “The 2000 Pound Bee”. It was also in 1962 that the first transistorized guitar effect was introduced. It was called as Maestro Fuzz Tone pedal, the first distortion based pedal available to the public, famously used by in Rolling Stones’ “Can’t Get No Satisfaction.”

In 1978, guitar and accessories manufacturer Boss presented to the market the DS-1 distortion pedal. In 1982, the same company produced SCC700 that allows 7 compact effects to be controlled with one single switch press.


The digital guitar pedals continued to improve in quality and popularity in the 90s thanks to the success of the charismatic guitarist Kurt Cobain. The interest on the product continued to boom in the 21st century notably the Electro-Harmonix POG used by Jack White of the White Stripes and the Ibanez TS808 Vintage Tube Screamer Reissue which was originally a trademark of Stevie Ray Vaughan, a great American musician and record producer.

Electro-Harmonix is a very innovative pair of rotary-speaker emulation pedals that can bring more excitement not only to the guitar player but also to his/ her listener. It’s not your usual guitar pedal, this is sick and slick!

Roadietuner is the guitar tuner everyone has been waiting for. It looks like somewhere between a breathalyser and a high-tech vaporiser. To use this, you need to clip it onto each peg as you tune each string in turn that guarantees mechanical accuracy for beginners and even professional musical artists.


With the many new things we have in front of us, we should also go back to basics if we want to produce quality sounds. You may want to visit Guitar Center, guitar strings order are now accepted.

Pinoys’ Internet experience to elevate with FiberX launch


Are you tired of getting the "usual" service from your internet providers?

Imagine paying in full and on time but what you receive in return is slow and unreliable connection. No one deserves such service, right?

The good news, such dilemma has now a solution... and you can kick your snail-like broadband internet because Converge ICT Solutions, Inc., a complete ICT solutions provider in the Philippines, just elevated Pinoys’ Internet experience with the launch of FiberX, iBIZ, Converge Enterprise and FiberXtreme.

The company also announced further expansion plans and continued strengthening of its fiber optic network. At present, Converge already laid out more than 6,000 kilometers of its fiber optic reach and is still growing. It is already servicing clients from as far north as Baguio and further down south to Batangas.

Converge Brand Ambassador Janeena Chan during the launch of FiberX at Marco Polo Hotel in Ortigas today.
Here in Metro Manila, Converge’s pure fiber optic offering has already covered cities such as Valenzuela and Las PiƱas and Muntinlupa cities down south of the metropolis. It plans to further expand its reach by putting up networks in Nasugbu, Batangas and even far north such as San Fernando in La Union.

Eventually, fiber broadband offerings will soon be enjoyed nationwide, according to Converge ICT Solutions, Inc. President and Chief Executive Officer Dennis Anthony Uy.

The perennial problem of Filipinos in dealing with slow Internet connection will now be a thing of the past, thanks to Converge ICT Solutions, Inc.’s offerings that bring fast, affordable, reliable, and “best-of-breed” pure fiber-optic connectivity to power the Internet usage of home, micro, small-, medium- and large-scale enterprise users.

“With Converge fiber broadband products, whether you are at home or at the office or your place of business, your Internet experience will surely be made better. And the best part of it is that it costs the same as your DSL connection, but made faster,” Uy explains further.

But the best part is that there is “NO DATA CAP” in Internet access unlike those offered by other service providers where there’s a limit to data allowance.

“We thought that what’s the use of having fast Internet connection if there is a limit to data access? With FiberX, there is no more ‘data cap’ to Internet usage. We feel we will just be short-changing our customers if we put a limit to their Internet usage,” says Jesus Romero, Chief Operating Officer of Converge ICT Solutions, Inc.

Aside from bringing faster Internet to Filipinos, Romero said they will limit the existing difficulties customers experience when applying for an Internet connection. “Part of the experience is to make sure that customers will not wait long to get connected. We have made the application process simple, easy and fast. No more hassles, no more waiting,” Romero adds.

Initially, FiberX is offered in three different plan types for a variety of home users depending on their Internet usage. FiberX 1500 comes with a burstable speed of up to 25Mbps, FiberX2500 at up to 50Mbps while FiberX 3500 offers connectivity of up to 100Mbps. With pure end-to-end fiber technology that’s light years better than traditional Digital Subscriber Line (DSL), FiberX will surely enhance everyone’s online experience with better speed, larger bandwidth and consistent performance for either work or play. But for those who want even faster connectivity, there’s FiberXtreme that comes in burstable speeds of 300Mbps and 500Mbps and priced competitively at P4,500 and P7,000, respectively.

For SMEs, Converge ICT Solutions, Inc. offers its iBIZ pure Fiber plan that allows businesses to operate faster and more efficient, with an Internet connection that has less interruptions and totally reliable. Each iBIZ plan comes with free Webmail, free Web hosting and free Public IP.

And for larger enterprises, Converge ICT Solutions, Inc. offers “Converge Enterprise” that comes with scalable Internet connection of up to 1Gbps, an IP MPLS (Multiprotocol Label Switching), Disaster Recovery, Managed Data Center Services, and other benefits for more efficient business operations.
