Outdoor TV In-Demand for Outdoor Living

SunBriteTV Finds Home in Ari Gold’s Outdoor Kitchen We like “feel-good” attention. Who doesn’t? We’re flattered that actor/producer Jeremy Piven recently tweeted-out about his new SunBriteTV outdoor TV. Piven is the boyishly handsome star known for PBS Masterpiece Classic Mr. Selfridge … and as fast-taking Hollywood agent Ari Gold in HBO’s Entourage. In his Tweet, Piven is seen in front of his...
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,...
SunBriteDS Introduces New Outdoor Digital Signage Solution

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....

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...
