Getting Married in South Africa

Marriage LAW in South Africa

If you are planning to get married in South Africa then here is some info that you might need to know.

Three types of marriages are recognized under South African law:

  1. civil marriages
  2. customary marriages
  3. civil unions


The solemnization and registration of these marriages are managed by the Department of Home Affairs.

When you enter into a civil marriage or civil union, the marriage officer will issue a handwritten marriage certificate at the ceremony. You can apply for a copy of the marriage certificate from the Department of Home Affairs if you have been married in South Africa and your marriage is registered. The first issue of an abridged marriage certificate is free, but you will have to pay for a second issue or an unabridged certificate. Where one partner has passed away and you need to prove that you had been married, an unabridged marriage certificate will be issued.

The definition of a customary marriage is one that is “negotiated, celebrated or concluded according to any of the systems of indigenous African customary law which exist in South Africa”. You must register your customary marriage within three months of the date of celebration or entering into the marriage to make it legal. This can be done at any office of the Department of Home Affairs or through a designated traditional leader in areas where there are no Home Affairs offices.

What Are Smart Billboards?: Cape Town

If you’ve traveled anywhere by car, bus, or foot, you’ve undoubtedly seen an electronic billboard. To be clear, when we refer to an electronic or digital billboard, we are not only referring to traditional billboards like the ones you see next to freeways, but also smaller digital screens that might appear next to bus benches, shopping centers, or other high traffic areas.

Once hailed as the next big thing in outdoor advertising, digital billboards quickly grew stale. Why? Because even though digital billboards allow a rotation of ads to be displayed, these types of billboards are still very easy to ignore.

In order for any advertisement to really capture the attention of a human being, the ad needs to speak to the viewer, both literally and figuratively. This is where smart billboards come into play.

What is Smart Advertising?

A “smart” advertisement, much like a smartphone or any other “smart” device, is an advertisement that can dynamically react to its environment by sending and receiving data over an information network (like the Internet).

The concept of a smart advertisement has been around for quite some time; in fact, any digital, out of home advertising that can adapt its message based on the time, date, or the weather can already be considered a “smart advertisement”.

Keep in mind though that while these adaptive billboards may seem highly intelligent compared to traditional static billboards they are still very simple implementations that barely scratch the surface of what a truly high-tech billboard could achieve.

What sorts of things will the billboards of the future do? They’ll dynamically react to their environment, changing the content displayed on the screen based on information they can collect about you, the onlooker.

In order to accomplish this task, the billboard or digital screens of the future will be equipped with an array of technologies ranging from cameras, radar, infrared, and antennas, which will provide the “eyes” needed to be able to see, listen and react to their environment.

How Digital Billboards are Changing the Face of Outdoor Advertising

Advertisements, regardless of their form, are engineered to accomplish one thing: capture the attention of an onlooker and inspire action.

In the past, the advertising industry predominantly used mediums such as newspapers, billboards, television, and the radio to deliver their marketing messages. These “traditional” mediums have received a few face lifts over the years in the form of digital outdoor advertising, as well as more advanced printing and broadcasting methods that increased their fidelity.

However, with the advent of computers and the internet, traditional advertising became increasingly more sophisticated and digital or Internet-based advertising, which has proven to be significantly better for targeting specific demographics, leading many advertisers to drop support for traditional methods altogether.

Recent technological innovations, however, have led many big players in the advertising industry to go back to traditional forms of advertising, specifically digital billboards and their smaller screened counterparts. Why? Because unlike online ads, billboards are not seen as being an inconvenience; in some cases, billboards are even seen as “artistic”, especially those put into the public’s eye by companies like Apple and Coca Cola.

But what about capturing the passerby’s attention? With the use of new interactive technologies, billboards are becoming more than just static images painted on a wall: billboards are now participating members of the Internet of Things, and they’re getting smarter every day.

How to pick a microphone

When deciding on a microphone there are 2 aspects to take into consideration:
There are 2 main types of microphone:
Dynamic Mics – The construction of these mics are very simple and comparatively sturdy. They require no power supply and are relatively inexpensive.
Condenser Mics – These mics are good at picking up all frequencies.They require power supply and are more of a weight on your budget compared to dynamic mics. Condenser mics are vulnerable to structural vibration and humidity.
Microphones have directionality that indicates from which direction they best pick up sound. Microphone directionality comes in 3 forms:
Unidirectional – This type of microphone features directionality to the front only and is also known as “cardioid” (because of its heart shaped directional pattern).
Bidirectional – This type of microphone features directionality to the front and rear.
Omnidirectional – These microphones do not have any specific directionality and will pick up sounds from all directions.
