Where will you watch the Super Bowl this year?

Catch the BIG GAME on a 126″ Video Wall, or in the Great Outdoors

Where will you catch all the action of the Super Bowl this year?  It is a question many sports fans ask, and our answer is dependant on a number of variables – Is anyone having a Super Bowl party?  Which sports bar has the best atmosphere?  What venue has the biggest and best TV?

For the best viewing experience, sports fans can watch the Super Bowl on a 103” Plasma TV from Panasonic. Can’t afford the $75,000 price tag? Rent it! Advanced Products Group (APG) is the only Canadian company that can make it possible. APG’s unique screen lifter ensures the 103” Panasonic will be delivered to any location for the big game.

And how about watching the game on a 126” High Definition Bezel-less Video Wall?

You can catch the Super Bowl on the Infinite Plasma, an amazing video wall, at locations around Toronto including Hoops Sports Bar & Grill, The Loose Moose Tap and Grill, or select Shoeless Joe’s to name a few!

“Good food and cold beer only go so far in the world of sports bars.  The locations with the largest and most elaborate HD displays generally win the battle when it’s time to pick a location to watch the big game,” said Andrew Salamon, General Manager, Advanced Products Group. “For bar and restaurant owners, renting a screen is a great way to generate more revenue on Super Bowl night, or any other major sporting event.”

You can watch the big game outside on your favourite sports bar patio, or even in your own hot tub. For those of us who want to watch the game in the outdoors as they lounge in a hot tub, you can now do so through a 23”, 32” or 46” All-Weather LCD SunBrite TV available through Advanced Products Group.  These HD LCD displays are resistant to snow, rain, humidity, dust and insects, and can be left outdoors year round as they are operational in temperatures ranging from -30°C to 50°C. 

See a weather resistant display in action at Jack Astor’s Toronto. And enjoy the game! Wherever you choose to watch the Super Bowl this year, Advanced Products Group has the display solution for you.

Readers set sights on record

As posted on the SIMCOE REFORMER – Mon. Jan 26, 2009

The words “clang, clang” could be heard echoing through the halls of Walsh Public School Friday morning as students and teachers joined a nationwide effort to break a world record.

In every classroom of the rural school west of Simcoe, teachers read to students from the same book, Robert Munsch’s Mortimer, at exactly the same time.

Students sat on floors, rested chins on cupped hands, and watched and listened.

For 30 minutes the reading went on, from Pigs to Mortimer — “clang, clang, rattle, rattle, bing, bang” — to Purple, Green and Yellow, Murmel, Murmel, Murmel, and Something Good.

With that, Walsh’s 395 students became part of the effort to break the record for the most children being read to by an adult in multiple locations. The previous record was set in the U.S. in 2006 when 78,791 students were read to.

Sponsored by ABC Canada Literacy Foundation, the effort involved children across the country Friday and Saturday. The foundation’s website said more than 190,000 participants had registered.

The group hoped to break the record and promote upcoming Family Literacy Day on Jan. 27.

There are rules to these things. Everybody had to be read the same books in the exact same order and three independent witnesses had to watch.

In Walsh, the effort was complicated by the need to find enough copies of the books.

Parents and kids were asked to bring in theirs while some classrooms called the books up on the Internet and had the pages projected onto SMART Boards, in effect giant computer screens that probably will one day replace the traditional chalk board.

With the touch of a finger, teachers scrolled through the pages while students looked on.
