Bring Your Favorite Video Entertainment Outside with an Outdoor TV
Watch TV Under the Sun or Stars
With the incredible array of content choices available today, it’s hard to deny that video entertainment offers an excellent escape from daily life. Whether your choices are Oscar-winning movies, Netflix series binges, or how-to videos on YouTube, there are many ways to be entertained and even learn something new.
What’s another way to escape life’s daily stresses? Spending more time outdoors, something everyone can use this particular year. What if you could combine these two things at home? That’s the option that an outdoor TV installation brings to your Atlanta, GA backyard. Keep reading to learn more about taking your favorite entertainment outside.
Indoor vs. Outdoor TV
First, a word about using a TV designed for indoor use outside. We highly recommend not going that route, even in a covered area, for several reasons. One, indoor TVs are not designed for outdoor environments. They are not built for humidity, high heat, or the occasional insect that decided to take up residence within. Second, they may not comply with electrical codes as humidity or an errant rain or splash could cause an electrical hazard. Finally, they’re also not as bright as outdoor TVs, which have to deal with changing ambient light.
Shade, Sun, or Both?
Where will you install your outdoor TV? Do you want it on your covered patio to enjoy in the afternoon and evening? Or do you envision catching an early-season Falcons game floating in the pool while soaking in the August sun? Either way, you have choices. Some TV models have the screen treatment and brightness to operate in full sun and higher heat tolerance levels. Others are designed for shaded or partially shaded areas, which may be covered. These may not need to be quite as bright nor require the same level of weather resistance.
Samsung’s New Terrace TVs
Samsung is the world’s largest TV producer since 2006. But until recently, the company had never made TV models for outdoor use. The new Terrace outdoor TV series changes all that, and Samsung has taken all their best TV technology outdoors. Whether you want a TV for full or partial sun installation, the Terrace has you covered.
The Terrace Partial Sun Outdoor QLED TV features astounding 2000+ nit brightness assuring a vivid picture in any light. Samsung’s QLED technology is known for exceptional brightness and color reproduction, which is now available outdoors. With an IP55 rating, it can withstand rain, dust, hose spray, and the ball that was meant for Rover to catch.
If you're looking for a TV by the pool or a fire pit, the 75-inch Full Sun Terrace provides complete protection from the sun while delivering brilliant picture quality. With a special anti-glare screen and sun-resistant construction, it's ready for rain or shine. All Terrace models also feature Samsung's best TV features. Adaptive Picture optimizes picture settings based on the light conditions. Samsung's Smart TV system features all the apps you need as well as voice control from Samsung’s Bixby, Amazon’s Alexa, and Google Home. And screencasting through Apple Airplay2 lets you instantly take any video from your iPhone or iPad to the big screen.
