      Answer

      Randy – thank you for asking! All SunBriteTVs are fully weatherproof, and meant to be permanently installed outdoors. Their powder-coated aluminum exteriors and weatherproof seals protect internal components from rain, snow, dust insects, and contaminants. Veranda Series models are 4K UHD and designed for use in fully shaded areas. They are up to 30% brighter than typical indoor TVs. Signature Series models are also 4K UHD and designed for use in partial sun applications. They are up to 3 times brighter than typical indoor TVs. Pro Series has both 4K and 1080P models and designed for use in full sun and active applications. They are up to 3 times brighter than typical indoor TVs and are more resistant to high temperatures. They also have a protective glass shield over the screen to help protect it from impact. Veranda units come with a one year warranty rather than our standard two year warranty. The TV can still be out in the rain, snow, etc., but is best viewed in the shade. If you have more questions, please contact us at 866.357.8688 or customerservice@sunbritetv.com. Thank you!

        Answer

        We made a conscious choice to not go "smart" with our weatherproof outdoor TVs, so they don't have apps, Wi-Fi connections, or Bluetooth. Customers typically replace outdoor TVs less frequently than indoor TVs, so we let customers connect their preferred cutting-edge content sources, and focus on the things that are most important long term to outdoor TV owners: Safety (Weatherproof), Durability (Powder-coated aluminum case), and Performance (brighter than typical indoor TVs). Our outdoor TVs do support the latest 4K and full HD sources with HDCP 2.2 and HDMI 2.0 (streaming media players, game consoles, cable boxes and more). Thanks for your interest in SunBriteTV!

        If I decide to go with this TV and have it in an uncovered area, will it still be ok? I plan to mostly use it at night and keep a dust cover over it during the day.   (2 Answers)

          Answer

          Thank you for asking! Yes, the SunBriteTV Veranda Series TV will still be fine completely exposed to rain and snow. However, if you’ll be watching TV in partial or full sun, you’ll want to consider our Signature or Pro series models. All SunBriteTVs are fully weatherproof, and meant to be permanently installed outdoors. Their powder-coated aluminum exteriors and weatherproof seals protect internal components from rain, snow, dust insects, and contaminants. Veranda Series models are 4K UHD and designed for use in fully shaded areas. They are up to 30% brighter than typical indoor TVs. Signature Series models are also 4K UHD and designed for use in partial sun applications. They are up to 3 times brighter than typical indoor TVs. Pro Series have both 4K and 1080P models and designed for use in full sun and active applications. They are up to 3 times brighter than typical indoor TVs and are more resistant to high temperatures. They also have a protective glass shield over the screen to help protect it from impact. If you have any other questions, please contact us at customerservice@sunbritetv.com or 866.357.8688. Thank you!

            Hi OutdoorLife (love your nickname by the way!) Thanks for your question about the SunBriteTV SB-5574UHD-BL 55” Veranda Series 4K UHD Outdoor TV for full shade applications. Typically a viewing distance of 7’ – 10’ is optimal for a 55” TV. It does depend on preference, of course, and the TV is still easily watchable at greater distances. However, while choosing the right size is definitely important, probably the most important thing to consider is how much sun exposure the screen will receive and where to install the TV. All SunBriteTVs are fully weatherproof, and meant to be permanently installed outdoors. Their powder-coated aluminum exteriors and weatherproof seals protect internal components from rain, snow, dust insects, and contaminants. Veranda Series models are 4K UHD and designed for use in fully shaded areas. They are up to 30% brighter than typical indoor TVs. Signature Series models are also 4K UHD and designed for use in partial sun applications. They are up to 3 times brighter than typical indoor TVs. Pro Series has both 4K and 1080P models and designed for use in full sun and active applications. They are up to 3 times brighter than typical indoor TVs and are more resistant to high temperatures. They also have a protective glass shield over the screen to help protect it from impact. Using a SunBriteTV articulating (full motion) weatherproof wall mount will provide you with excellent flexibility with viewing angle.

              Hi FuzzyBunny, Thanks for your interest in the SunBriteTV - Veranda 55" 4K UHD Outdoor TV (SB-5574UHD-BL) SunBriteTV Veranda Series models are 4K UHD and designed for use in fully shaded areas. They are up to 30% brighter than typical indoor TVs. The SB-HDWT wireless transceiver is NOT compatible with this product. The reason is because the wireless transceiver is meant for 1080P resolutions and this TV is 4K UHD. Some SunBriteTV Pro Series Models (SB-3211, SB-4217, SB-4917, and SB-5518) ARE compatible, since the TVs are 4K UHD resolution. Many times, it is possible to split the signal from the cable box and run an HDMI cable outside to the TV. We'd suggest consulting with a qualified professional residential custom electronics installer to review your specific install. Please feel free to email us at CustomerService@SunBriteTV.com or give us a call at 866-357-8688 with any additional questions or comments! Happy outdoor living!

              I'm looking to mount the Veranda series under a patio but on a ceiling mount in a corner. The back of the TV would be exposed more to the direct sun in this position but not the viewing screen. Could I still get away with the Veranda series?   (2 Answers)

                Answer

                Thanks for your questions and your interest in the SunBriteTV 55" Veranda series 4K UHD Outdoor TV (SB-5574UHD-BL) for full-shade applications. You may want to consider a SunBriteTV 55" Signature series 4K UHD Outdoor TV (SB-S-55-4K), as direct sun on the back of the unit could heat the TV beyond it's intended operating temperature range. Also because sun directly behind the unit will backlight the screen and make it harder so see, the ultra bright anti glare screen on the Signature series may provide you a better viewing experience in these backlit and bright ambient light conditions. I see from your photo that you have outdoor curtains behind the location where the TV would be installed. If this is the case, you could probably alleviate the above potential issues by fully shading the rear of the TV by drawing the curtains while in use. Please feel free to email us at CustomerService@SunBriteTV.com or give us a call at 866-357-8688 with any additional questions or comments! Happy outdoor living!

                      Answer

                      The TVs do have standard VESA patterns, but using a regular mount outdoors can rust, which will degrade the safety of your installation. Our SunBriteTV wall mounts have a lifetime guarantee that they will not rust or fail. If you have any questions, please let us know!
