Setting the Scene The weather is perfect at this time of year to abandon your living room for get-togethers, and instead spend time entertaining outside.

Beginner or pro – best tips for creating an outdoor TV & outdoor living experience Placing a TV outside can entertain, inform and keep people close to the action. It’s a crowd-pleaser for many restaurants, businesses, theme parks, stadiums, and residential homes, making installation knowledge a must for both commercial A/V pros and DIY home-owner electronics enthusiasts.

We asked a few audio-visual professionals for pointers, tips and other ideas about what to do and what to avoid when it comes to installing outdoor displays. 1. Indoor TVs and outdoor TVs are not the same. Ask anyone who’s installed a true outdoor television about the biggest mistake novice installers make. The first thing they blurt out is how you shouldn’t even dream of using an indoor TV in an outdoor environment. They love to talk about it, because it really is the worst possible decision for you, your client, the homeowner and especially the equipment.

84” 4K UHD Outdoor TV Catches Attention at InfoComm 2016 Show For those not familiar, InfoComm is the largest annual gathering of audio-visual professionals “in the western hemisphere” as described by Infocommshow.org.

SunBriteTV – with digital signage companion-brand, SunBriteDS – took to the exhibitor floor, booth N1347, to officially introduce the newest, largest-screen outdoor TV in its product line. The all-weather 84″ 4K UHD Pro Series outdoor display / outdoor TV won an award as Commercial Integrator’s ‘Best Products of 2016’. AV Network recognized the 84″ 4K UHD as ‘InfoComm Best of Show – Digital Signage’ and ‘InfoComm Best of Show’. “The show was a great opportunity to share the benefits of SunBriteTV products – like being designed for permanent outdoor installation and having larger, powered media bays and brighter screens,” says Cody Gates, SunBriteTV Dealer Support Specialist.

SunBriteTV 84″ 4K UHD is Outdoor Living-Ready for Summer

Outdoor living trend now includes amazing outdoor TV options Not long ago, entertaining outdoors meant dragging your indoor TV outside – regardless of safety issues, general inconvenience and voided warranties (indoor TVs will void their warranty if the TV gets “zapped” outside). If you wanted to watch the game outside with friends, the weather had to be perfect with no chance of water, salt air, insect invaders or sunlight. As outdoor living becomes more popular, home-owners are seeking to move away from make-shift solutions to true outdoor spaces to entertain … or businesses to create environments to engage customers. A Residential Landscape Architecture Trends Survey of architects shows “outdoor entertainment spaces” ranks high on the list of “expected popular outdoor designs” (92%). SunBriteTV leads the way, again, with the latest in outdoor living – a massive 84″ 4K UHD television, one of the biggest and brightest UHD models in the outdoor TV industry. The SB-8414UHD is designed for permanent outdoor installation … with features that guarantee it will last through rain, shine, snow, humidity, ice, dust, and the occasional family food-fight. The engineered anti-glare 4K UHD screen fends off typical sun glare and is a refined viewing experience from any angle outdoors. This 84″ electronics break-through is just one of several, sought-after, direct-sun tolerant Pro Series outdoor TVs offered by the leader in outdoor television. SunBriteTV also offers a line of sleek, slim Signature Series outdoor HDTVs designed for outdoor partial-shade placement (meaning, outdoor placement OK, but the screen shouldn’t face the sun directly). “When will this be available?” We’ve answered that question a lot lately. The SB-8418UHD is...
