SunBriteTV Intros 4K/UHD Outdoor 84-Inch TV

sunbrite-outdoor-84-1015At CEDIA, SunBriteTV has announced its entry into 4K UHD with two new outdoor televisions. The rugged 84-inch Pro Series model (SB-8418UHD), with the company’s largest screen size to date, and the slimmer 55-inch Signature Series unit (SB-5574UHD) are among the first 4K-enabled weatherproof televisions available on the market. The 84” makes it two outdoor TVs in that size launched this week as Séura made its announcement earlier.

Designed for permanent outdoor installation, both the SB-8418UHD and the SB-5574UHD feature reliable weatherproofing technology that protects internal components from rain, snow, dust, salt corrosion, insects and humidity. Specialized high-brightness anti-glare screens differ from those of indoor televisions and optimize the outdoor viewing experience, which has never looked better in 3840x2160p 4K UHD. Both units come with a 20W detachable weatherproof speaker bar.

The SB-8418UHD, part of SunBriteTV’s Pro Series, also features a glass shield to provide extra protection for the LED panel. The ultra-bright (800 nits) LED screen and Direct Sunlight-Readable capability displays a clear image in even the harshest lighting conditions. Built-in heating and cooling systems keep the 84-inch model operating in temperatures from -40° to 122°F.

The SB-5574UHD, part of SunBriteTV’s Signature Series line, does not compromise on durability. Beautifully designed and only 3.5” at maximum depth, the SB-5574UHD looks at home in even the most sophisticated outdoor living spaces. It’s fully functional in temperatures from -24° to 122°F.
