Rain, snow, humidity, heat… no matter what the weather, outdoor televisions are built tough to withstand the elements and abuse from us humans too. Commercial applications are plentiful whether at outdoor bars or restaurants, arenas or stadiums, amusement parks or college campuses. Although they are pricier than the standard TV, there are a couple of reasons why paying a little more for an outdoor TV would be worth it in the long run.
No More Glare
The glare and reflections of the outdoors on a standard TV causes the image to be significantly duller and even barely visible. The technology in outdoor TV’s takes this into account and provides a much brighter image to make the glare issue a thing of the past. Some higher end outdoor TVs like the SunBrite Pro or SkyVue NXG’s are even designed for direct sun environments where absolutely no shade is available.
A standard TV just can’t brave the dust, cold and heat that outdoor environments present. Outdoor TV’s are equipped with fans to keep them cooler in hot temperatures (up to 140 degrees Fahrenheit), and heating elements for cold temperatures (as low as -24 degrees Fahrenheit). They are built to withstand the wind and dust that can wreak havoc on electronics. Even some of the remote controls are waterproof and made to float. SunVue Outdoor TV’s are crafted with powder coated aluminum housing that is resistant to rust and durable in wetter conditions. Proofvision commercial outdoor TV’s are crafted with tempered glass to make them tougher in situations where they might be susceptible to vandalism. Companies have provided many options to make sure your investment lasts for years to come even in the toughest of conditions.
