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 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...
Take Wireless HD Outdoors with Your SunBriteTV

Take Wireless HD Outdoors with Your SunBriteTV

Outdoor TV’s weatherproof, wireless companion It’s unique, handy and weatherproof. The SunBriteTV Wireless HD Transceiver can “beam” HDTV programming from your indoor, non-weatherproof TV components (e.g. cable box) to your new, all-weather, outdoor SunBriteTV, creating a true wireless outdoor TV experience. The SB-HDWT is a point-to-point system that transmits full 1080p HD up to 100 feet along an unobstructed path, reducing the amount of “cabling” needed to install your outdoor television for outdoor entertaining. Connect to your HD cable / satellite box, HD set-top box, Blue Ray DVD, DV-R or game console and take the A/V party outside. A must-have for DIY or highly customized outdoor home theaters within an outdoor living setting. The wireless transceiver is compatible with resolutions from 480p up to 1080p, and includes HDCP2.0 with video encryption for secure wireless streaming of your favorite NetFlix shows. INNOVATIVE WIRELESS DESIGN for OUTDOOR TV SunBriteTV engineers created the HD Transceiver for flexibility in rugged, all-weather conditions. “The omni-directional antenna sets at the top of the receiver, the square part,” says SunBriteTV Engineer Jonathan Dry. “It’s designed to ‘see’ the transmitter from a patio area or anywhere in your yard within range.” Dry adds that the path from transmitter to receiver should be unobstructed for best results. The signal is able to transmit through walls and windows, although it may reduce the range. The back of the receiver includes openings for the power cord (to the TV) to escape above, below or from the side of the receiver. “The receiver does not have to be attached to the TV. It can be mounted beside the TV, above it,...

Rain or Cold, Outdoor TV Warms Up Football Season

SunBriteTV poll reveals NFL, college football fans embrace outdoor TV to watch “the game” outside It’s here. Football season. Pro and college. Packers, Bills and Browns … or Georgia State, Gators and Sooners. ESPN reports 49% of Americans are pro-football fans and a Fox Sports poll finds that college football is loved, but not as much as pro. Thirty-five percent polled say pro football is #1, but 14% prefer professional baseball (MLB) … while 11% faithfully watch college football. Yet, another poll – of our own SunBriteTV customers – finds all sports are a TOP viewing choice on their outdoor TV. In fact, 91% of those who purchased a SunBriteTV in 2014 say they plan to watch “sports” on their new SunBriteTV. Other viewing choices are “general programming” “news” and “special events.” Customers also have outdoor living and outdoor entertaining plans. Forty-five percent say throwing a “super-bowl party” is in their future. About 40% say they intend to use their outdoor TV to help entertain during their outdoor grill parties, birthday parties or low-key “family hangouts.” Most folks just discovering the joys of outdoor television say they know exactly where to place their new Signature Series SunBriteTV. Preferences include: 35% deck (under roof overhang or under built-in cover) 20% outdoor patio 18% near an outdoor kitchen / grilling area 16% pool-side 11% undecided or wish to move the TV around to separate outdoor areas (think “tailgating”) And with our new, all-weather wireless HD transceiver, home-owners now have more options to wirelessly connect their weather-proof SunBriteTV to Hi-Def programming. The SB-HDWT can transmit full 1080p HD up to 100 feet...
