When it comes to watching movies and TV shows outside, most people tend to think of projectors, but projectors can have visibility issues with indoor lighting, let alone outside, so they’re generally only useful at night. If you’re looking for something you can use throughout the day, SunBriteTV’s surprisingly affordable new 4K UHD Veranda series of outdoor televisions could be exactly what you need.
“We designed the Veranda Series to complement the most common outdoor install locations, like covered patios and screened-in porches, but at a significantly more affordable price point,” SunBriteTV general manager Jonathan Johnson said in a statement. “Outdoor living has never been this attainable.”
Anyone who has ever struggled to see their phone’s screen in bright daylight can attest that no screen can withstand every lighting conditions, and that is the case with SunBriteTV’s new models. These are meant to be used in shady areas, but are still approximately 30 percent brighter than many indoor televisions, making them more easily viewable outside.
The Veranda Series is also weatherproof, with rust-proof, powder-coated aluminum exteriors, so there is no need to haul your TV inside when it starts raining, as long as it is suitably protected. Temperatures shouldn’t be problem either, with the TVs feature an operating temperature range of 24 below zero to 104 degrees Fahrenheit, and storage temperatures ranging between minus 24 and 140 degrees Fahrenheit.
Three different screen sizes are available in the Veranda: 43, 55, and 65 inches. Every model features HDMI 2.0 and HDCP 2.2, with large media bays to keep your Ultra HD Blu-ray discs protected. Installer-friendly cable-entry systems mean that you won’t need to step over a mess of cables every time you’re moving around your TV.
The new Veranda Series starts at $1,500 for the 43-inch model, running up to $3,500 for the 65-inch mode, and is available beginning today. For more information, see the company’s website.
