SunBriteDS Introduces New Outdoor Digital Signage Solution

All-Weather 47″ Anti-Theft Shroud Cover Kit is an alternative to costly kiosks Outdoor digital signage displays no longer need go unprotected. SunBriteDS engineers have developed an innovative, anti-theft, safety cover kit to secure select SunBriteDS 47″ digital signage & TV models from vandalism and tampering. Commercial outdoor venues often feel un-easy about placing outdoor TVs or digital signage displays in areas with a lot of foot-traffic. Strolling crowds and walk-bys are no longer a concern with the 47″ Anti-Theft Shroud Cover Kit. “The shroud prevents vandalism in an open environment,” says SunBriteTV engineer, Jon Dry. “It can prevent theft of the TV it’s protecting because there are custom locking fasteners holding the TV and shroud secure.” The locking, safety fasteners are custom-created for SunBriteDS. The fasteners cannot be adjusted without the specialty wrench that is included in the kit. The kit also includes a deck pole and mount along with the protective cover assembly. The weatherproof 47″ Anti-Theft Shroud Cover Kit (SB-SS47-BL) features: industrial-grade (12 gauge) powder-coated aluminum construction will never rust stainless steel hardware UV tolerant powder coating for extended outdoor use Kiosks can be Pricey & Awkward The 47″ Anti-Theft Shroud Cover Kit is a cost-efficient alternative to high-priced kiosks. The kit is designed for use with our 47″ landscape digital signage models: the 47″ Marquees Series DS-4720L, the 47″ Pro Series Outdoor LED HDTV SB-4717HD, and the 47″ Pro Series Outdoor Touch Screen & Digital Signage DS-4717TSL. The cover kit solution is well-suited for outdoor areas in need of a less intrusive experience than standard kiosks offer. “Standard kiosks are more monolithic in nature,” says Dry....

Outdoor TV SunBriteTV Wins Battle with Chicago Snow, Any Weather

A SunBriteTV customer testimonial details what weatherproof TV is all about Since designing and engineering the first SunBriteTV outdoor televisions in 2003, our passion is sharing the joy of outdoor TV and outdoor living, any time, any season. Recently, one of our customers wrote to us – expressing delight about his SunBriteTV 32″ outdoor TV’s performance – especially during harsh Chicago weather. He invited us to share his experience: STEPHANZOURAS LLP, Attorneys at Law 205 N. Mich1gan Ave., Suite 2560 Chicago, Illinois 60601 Re: My compliments Dear SunBriteTV: Many customers may not bother to write to express how impressed they are with one of your products, and I usually wouldn’t either, but this time I. felt obligated. Last year, I purchased a SunBriteTV 32″ outdoor TV to use on our recently-remodeled roof deck. I never intended to bring it in for the harsh Chicago winter, but I also didn’t know we were about to experience one of the most brutal winters in history. In addition to a record-breaking number of sub-zero days (many approaching minus 30 degrees), we had more snowfall than I can recall in my adult life. Put succinctly, even by Chicago standards, our winter was incredibly long, icy, windy and dangerously cold. The TV, perched high on a beam on our roof with virtually no cover, was exposed to the very worst of it. Therefore, before I attempted to tum it on a few days ago, I was all but certain that nothing- not even an “outdoor TV”- could survive all that. Needless to say, I was amazed (and delighted) that the TV turned on and...

‘Where can I place my new outdoor TV?’

SunBriteTV expert tips & advice on creating an outdoor living space TV by the pool? Great idea! TV in the garage? You bet. Patio TV, deck TV … watch the game while grilling outside with friends? Yes, yes and wouldn’t-have-it-any-other-way. There are plenty of options to get the best outdoor living and outdoor entertaining with your new SunBriteTV. We’ve seen amazing custom installations by our authorized dealers, and we’ve seen awesome outdoor TV settings by home-owners with their own audio/visual direction. In this blog post, SunBriteTV experts share wisdom and advice about mounting and positioning your outdoor television for complete, long-term enjoyment. Outdoor TV Living Pool-side is always a popular placement location for a SunBriteTV. We’re on-board with that, but keep in mind a few safety tips. “Get a GFCI outlet, a ground-fault current interrupting outlet,” advises SunBriteTV engineer Larry Benson. “It’s pretty standard and a best-use outlet for outdoor installations of any kind.” Keep the TV away from standing water. A good rule-of-thumb is to keep the TV at least six feet away from pools of water. Some call it the “MC Hammer” rule. The TV should be placed far enough away so that – if you’re standing in water – then “u can’t touch this!” You can also check your city or county’s electrical code to understand any additional requirements. Pick a location for your outdoor TV away from festive, running children, who may have a habit of tossing objects around, such as Frisbees, volleyballs, pool toys. Although, as this video by Digital Trends details, SunBriteTV can handle a lot of abuse: No Indoor TVs Please Don’t...

SunBriteTV Outdoor TV Installation Recommendations

Installation Tips & Advice for Weatherproof TV Best Performance SunBriteTV engineers and product specialists offer the following tech insight on successfully installing your SunBriteTV weatherproof HDTV – on the patio, deck, yard, pool-side – to enjoy maximum outdoor entertaining. How do I get HD content to my SunBriteTV? “A wired installation is a reliable method to connect any source to a device,” says Larry Benson, SunBriteTV Engineer. HARD WIRE SunBriteTVs are typically utilized in situations where the video source – the cable or satellite box or a player – is located inside a house or other secure weather-safe location near the SunBriteTV. There’s HDMI and There’s Balun An HDMI cable can be used to get from the video source to your SunBriteTV outside, but only if the distance to the TV is less than 30’ (feet). If the distance to your TV is more than 30’ – for example, from your video source to your SunBriteTV on the patio or outside kitchen – then, we recommend using powered baluns. Um. What’s a balun? Basically, a balun is a transmitter-receiver device. The “connection” used for a balun is a Cat5/Cat6 network cable. We recommend using a balun as a hard-wire option for setting up your SunBriteTV for 2 reasons: The Cat5/Cat6 cable used with the balun can be cut, or customized, for your specific outdoor setting (see images below). Many baluns include an IR remote control extender – or repeater – to get IR commands from the video source hand-held remote control, through the balun system back to the video source. This allows smooth channel changes and control of your...
