Why Dad Wants an Outdoor TV for Father’s Day

It’s a TV for Outside! Father’s Day is near and most everyone is brain-storming about the perfect gift for Dad. Offerings of ties, socks, hats are great … but, maybe this is the year he’s WOW-ed with an all-weather, outdoor television. Five Top Reasons to Get Dad That Outdoor TV 5) Winter Woes Recovery. He’s just now shaking off the arctic blasts that kept the entire family indoors all winter. He shoveled snow, scrapped ice, brooded on weekends while staring out the window. He defiantly tried to grill during a Nor’easter – under a ski jacket, 12 hoodies and optimistic Bermuda shorts claiming, “It’s fine out here, really! I feel summer already!” It’s time to let him embrace the outdoors and soak-up some vitamin D. 4) Man Cave. He’d like a space outside … to entertain or just “chill.” 3) He’s a Techie. He wants to show-off his technology-side. What’s better than an outdoor 4K UHD TV that can withstand rain, heat, snow and food fights? He’ll love explaining how a SunBriteTV works and how placing an indoor TV outside is a common, yet amateur mistake. 2) Grill, grill, grill. Testing out his latest grill recipes without missing the game, news, Netflix or a House Hunters marathon. (We know he likes HGTV). 1) Family time! Weekends and holidays with the kids, pets, in-laws, family friends, all enjoying the outdoors without having to run inside to see “a play” “shot” “scene” or “inning” … it’s on outside! Dad can feel confident that his new outdoor TV is rated “safe” – designed and engineered by SunBriteTV to withstand outside elements. It’s...

12 Tips for Installing a TV Outdoors – Tip 1, Get an Outdoor TV

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. And, yes, they do … they really do make specialized televisions for outdoors! These models are designed & engineered to be safer – with a better viewing experience – than their indoor cousins. Whether you’re just starting to install outdoor HDTVs and displays or consider yourself a pro, installation of outdoor electronics has a set of specific, but easy-to-follow set of rules. 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. Sure, we know plenty of people love to drag the TV out to the backyard on a nice summer evening. And yes, it’s a cheaper solution … but it isn’t a long-term solution. If your client is looking to make a TV a permanent fixture for outdoor living, the TV needs to be...
HDTV and Digital Signage Monitors Get High-Heat Tested

HDTV and Digital Signage Monitors Get High-Heat Tested

Outdoor TVs, Digital Signage Displays Keep Their Cool “Can SunBriteTV and SunBriteDS outdoor TVs handle temperatures up to 130 degrees Fahrenheit?” “Can your HDTVs and digital signage monitors function in high-heat manufacturing environments?” “How long can they tolerate continuous hot temps?” As the leader in engineering outdoor televisions and commercial digital displays designed to operate under harsh conditions, we often receive inquiries from companies in need of TV, video monitor or digital signage display units for their specialized – often extreme – situations. For example, a manufacturing setting that throws-off ambient high temps when working non-stop – such as an auto assembly plant or steel mill. We continuously test our hi-def outdoor televisions & digital signage models. Our most recent, extreme heat testing of a 55″ Pro Series outdoor HDTV (SB-5517HD) proved that SunBriteTV and SunBriteDS weatherproof displays are built to endure extreme conditions – both outdoors and in. In Q4 2014, SunBriteTV engineers provided National Testing Systems (NTS), a certified testing facility located in Santa Clarita, CA with the SB-5517HD direct-sun tolerant Pro Series display. The objective of the test was to confirm our confidence in our displays functioning in extreme environments. The display was placed in a test chamber for five (5) days, 24 hours a day and experienced no problems. This test was to simulate an auto plant or steel mill type of environment where heat rises towards ceiling mounted displays. The SB-5517HD was placed inside a heat testing chamber. An engineer describes the rest of the test: “The unit sat on a table during the test. Power was supplied to the unit for the entire...

SunBriteTV Finds Home in Ari Gold’s Outdoor Kitchen We like “feel-good” attention. Who doesn’t?

SunBriteTV Outdoor TV Endures Salt Air Test Successfully

SunBriteTV Outdoor TV Endures Salt Air Test Successfully

Beach and pool-settings perfect for our durable, weatherproof, outdoor TVs More proof why all-weather, outdoor TVs by SunBriteTV are rugged enough for decks, patios, cafes … as well as coastal resorts and ocean-side homes and businesses. AND why indoor TVs cannot tolerate outdoor conditions. SunBriteTV engineers took a SunBriteTV 47″ Pro Series TV – the 4717HD LED HDTV – and placed it in a salt-fog chamber to simulate years of use under higher-heat, salt-weather conditions. It may look a bit informal, but the test methodology is highly scientific and rigorous. The salt-fog chamber is commonly used to test electronics and other products for their ability to withstand repeated, on-going corrosive conditions. The actual test was performed by National Technical Systems, or “NTS” in Santa Clarita, CA. All SunBriteTV models – from outside-savvy, all-weather, newly re-designed, thin LED Signature Series … to direct sun tolerant HDTV, digital signage Pro Series, and commercial-grade, high-NIT weatherproof digital signage Marquee Series – are designed, engineered and built for permanent outdoor installation. Each model is capable of operating in temperatures of -40 degrees to 120+ degrees. Our test 47″ HDTV has a powder-coated aluminum exterior. All working components are tightly sealed within the unit. It’s the same unit available on SunBriteTV.com or through an authorized dealer – to anyone, any time. No special preparation or adjustments were made to the unit before testing. Here’s a look at our volunteer as testing begins: Most fog tests run 48 hours. We went the distance at 3 times longer – and completed the duration without fail. Our testing ran 168 hours, or 7 days … which is...
