Enjoy 4K in the shade
The Furrion Aurora FDUF55CBS lets you relax outside with a sharp 4K picture — it's a perfect excuse to bring people together.
Enjoy 4K in the shade
It's hard to stay indoors when the sky's blue and the sun's shining, but few things are as relaxing as sitting back to catch a movie or binge your favorite show. The Furrion Aurora FDUF55CBS lets you do both, so you can feel the breeze while watching TV in the shade.
Furrion's Full Shade TV is designed for high-quality outdoor entertainment, delivering sharp 4K picture in shaded areas like a covered patio, screened porch, or garage. Color and contrast are also enhanced when watching HDR-encoded content, providing a rich, detailed viewing experience outdoors. This durable 55" TV is a great pick for anyone hosting a party or getting folks together for game night.
Built to withstand the elements
The FDUF55CBS is rugged and engineered to resist humidity, dirt, rain, and harsh UV rays. Its dust-tight housing keeps particles out and also prevents the local critter population from taking up residence. A sealable compartment encloses the rear-panel connections to protect them from the elements. Four built-in fans regulate the TV's temperature, allowing it to perform at full-capacity even when the thermometer spikes to 122° F. It can also handle extreme cold.
The Furrion Full Shade 4K TV is designed to be permanently installed on an outdoor wall in a shaded area. Its anti-glare screen resists distracting reflections while ambient light sensors auto-adjust the brightness to keep your image clear. And a wide 178° viewing angle lets you enjoy 4K picture without worrying as much about getting the perfect seat.
Furrion's F2AA002ABBK Tilt and F2AA001ABBK Full Motion all-weather mounts are a perfect match to install the FDUF55CBS (sold separately). If you plan on placing your outdoor TV in an area with more sun, you'll want to check out Furrion's Partial Sun Series, which have even brighter screens designed for just that.

Features & specs
Waterproof Design (IP54): The Furrion Aurora Series TV is outdoor safe and can withstand harsh conditions when exposed to the elements. With a weatherproof housing and IP54 rating, the Furrion Aurora Series TV is engineered to withstand the harsh effects of UV rays, dirt, insects, and humidity (the TV is not waterproof).
- The IP54 rating means the TV is protected against dust ingress and splashing of water sufficient to prevent the television from operating normally, but it's not dust tight or waterproof.
- Do not use the TV if the ambient air temperature exceeds the operating temperature limits. -4º F to 122º F (Operating Temperature) / -27.4º F to 140º F (Storage Temperature).
- A weather proof dust cover (FVC43W-BL, sold separately) is available for when the Furrion Aurora Series Outdoor TV is not in use.
Fully Shaded: The Furrion Outdoor TV gives you a perfect and optimized picture in fully shaded outdoor environments thanks to a high brightness, anti-glare screen with auto-brightness control that adjusts the light levels for optimum viewing.
- Anti-Glare Screen: The TV utilizes an anti-glare screen for better visibility outdoors in full shade with a wide 178º viewing angle.
- High Brightness: The TV's ultra-bright, 400-nit screen delivers the perfect amount of brightness for fully shaded outdoor environments with a contrast ratio of 4000:1.
- Ambient Light Sensor: The TV's integrated ambient light sensor with auto-brightness control automatically changes the screen's lighting levels adjusting to bright and dark conditions for optimal viewing at all times.
Ultra-HD Performance: The 4K Ultra-High Definition screen delivers crystal clear images, while the HDR technology brings deep contrast and immersive colors.
- 4K/60Hz: The TV has a display resolution of 3840x2160 @ 60Hz (4K) and will display all video at that resolution through its built-in upscaler, regardless of input signal. 4K provides 4x higher resolution than current 1080p high-definition TVs with a total of 8.3 million pixels. Its detail is so vivid and crisp, even when viewed from close distances; it's nearly impossible to discern a single pixel, even from inches away. Enjoy incredibly flawless images, vivid colors, and picture details as never before.
- HDR: High Dynamic Range (HDR) enhances the dynamic range of a picture, increasing the contrast between the brightest whites and darkest blacks. Every pixel is made more accurate, bringing scenes to life with greater detail. HDR's greater dynamic range of luminosity or brightness levels brings greater contrast & wider color spectrum to the screen. This increased contrast reveals the subtle nuances of the image, from detailed blacks and shadows to the brightest whites and colors, plus greater depth.
Note: The TV only supports HDR10. It is not compatible with HDR10+, HLG, or Dolby Vision.
AV Inputs: The Furrion Aurora Series Outdoor TV is equipped with three HDMI 2.0 inputs, one component video input and one composite video input.
- HDM 2.0: The TV is equipped with three HDMI 2.0 inputs that support 4K/HDR video, Dolby Digital audio, and CEC (consumer electronic control). The HDMI 1 input is also ARC (Audio Return Channel) compatible. In addition, the HDMI 3 input is MHL compatible.
- Component/Composite: The component and composite video inputs support 480i video only. The component and composite video inputs share a stereo RCA audio input, so only one of these analog video inputs are meant to be used.
Built-In TV Tuner: The Furrion Aurora Series Outdoor TV features a built-in NTSC (analog) and ATSC (digital) OTA TV tuner with single RF-coaxial input.
MHL (Mobile High-Definition Link): The HDMI 3 input is MHL compatible for connectivity to MHL-enabled Android devices. This allows you to mirror content from your MHL compatible Android mobile device on the outdoor TV through a wired HDMI connection. To find MHL-certified devices, go to www.mhlconsortium.org.
Dual USB Ports: The Furrion Aurora Series Outdoor TV is equipped with two USB-A 2.0 ports (5V/1A) that allow you to connect a USB MSC (mass storage class) device, such as a USB thumbdrive. The TV supports playback of JPEG Photo and MP3 Music files from a connect USB MSC device.
Note: The USB ports do not support playback from an Apple iOS or Android device, a USB hub or card-reader, and a desktop computer or laptop.
Picture Settings: The Furrion Aurora Series Outdoor TV offers several Picture Settings to better suit your viewing needs, application, and content.
- Aspect Ratio: You can set the aspect ratio of the screen to better suit your viewing content. Select Zoom, Normal, Cinema or Wide.

- Noise Reduction: The Noise Reduction setting reduces the roughness of the picture. You can select Weak, Middle, Strong, or Off.
- DLC (Dynamic Level Contrast): DLC adjust the dynamic level contrast to better enhance light and dark images.
ARC (Audio Return Channel): The HDMI 1 input's Audio Return Channel enables the TV, via a single HDMI cable, to send audio data "upstream" to an AV receiver; increasing user flexibility and eliminating the need for any separate S/PDIF audio connection. This feature allows audio to be sent from the television to your AV receiver through the same HDMI cable already being used to send audio/video to the television. This eliminates the need for extra cables connected to the TV. ARC allows audio from the TV tuner, inserted USB device, HDMI inputs, or any analog connected device to be heard through your ARC compatible AV receiver via the television's HDMI ARC input. The audio from the TV's tuner, HDMI inputs, and USB inputs can pass as Dolby Digital or 2ch PCM. Analog connected devices will be output as 2ch PCM only.
- Both the television and the receiver must support ARC for this function to work properly. When connecting an AV receiver that is compatible with Audio Return Channel (ARC), connect it to the TV's HDMI IN 1 port.
- If connecting a system that is incompatible Audio Return Channel (ARC), an additional audio connection via analog stereo RCA or coaxial digital is necessary.
Audio Outputs: The Furrion Aurora Series Outdoor TV is outfitted with both analog and digital audio outputs. There is a stereo RCA output and a coaxial digital audio output. The coaxial digital audio output supports 2ch PCM and Dolby Digital 5.1ch.
Stereo Speaker System: The Furrion Aurora Series Outdoor TV is equipped with a stereo speaker system (8 watts x 2 channel). The built-in speaker system offerers Bass, Treble, and balance adjustment. It also offers an Auto Volume Leveler and 4 Sound Modes (Music, Movie, Sport, or Off).

- IR Input: The 3.5mm IR input allows you to extend the reach of the TV and remote's IR signal when used with an IR extender (sold separately - see Accessories Tab).

Note: The Furrion Aurora Series Outdoor TV does not come with a pedestal stand and does not offer an option for a pedestal stand.
