Outdoor All-Weather TV: The SunBriteTV outdoor LCD
television has been designed to withstand the rigors of the outdoor environment
and provide many years of optimum viewing. This TV can be permanently mounted
outdoors. Its ASA outdoor rated high-impact resin exterior is engineered to
protect internal components from rain, dust, insects, humidity, and salt air.
- Weather-Proof Materials: Weather-proof materials are
used in every component of SunBriteTVs. Stainless steel and galvanized metal
parts are used throughout the TV to resist the corrosive effects of water
and humidity. Protective gaskets, stripping, and grommets are specially
selected to resist the harmful effects of salt air and sunlight. All models
utilize an innovative watertight cable entry system and cable pass-through
design that protects the cables and inputs from the elements. Even the
powerful built-in two-way 20-watt speakers are sealed against rain and

sensors and a filtered multi-fan airflow system that quietly keeps the unit
cool to provide protection and long-life to the internal components.

indoor TVs have a high gloss finish that enhances color performance. In the
bright light of the outdoors, this reflective effect of the screen is greatly
multiplied making it a challenge to see any picture at all. That's why

that help absorb the ambient light, making them resistant to this glare.
