For the TV Lover

When you’re inside, it’s easy to control lighting conditions. In fact, it’s a cornerstone of theater design.

But outside, seeing images that don’t get washed out by ambient light becomes a challenge.

Thankfully, there are a few solutions available for you.

The first is an outdoor television. Ultra-bright, 4K units make it easy to watch your favorite movies, shows and sports even in the daytime.

The units are uniquely designed to withstand the elements. Featuring water-tight connections, water drainage systems and nearly unbreakable glass displays, they’re made for the outdoors.

And you don’t have to worry about size. Manufacturers like SunbriteTV build displays up to 80 inches, so you can see the images from well across the yard.

For the Projector Lover

Of course, some homeowners like the idea of a traditional projected image in their theaters – both indoors and out.

But as you can probably guess, outdoor theaters aren’t particularly suited to projection. In a typical setup, the projector sits behind the viewer and fires the images at the screen, which reflects the light back at the viewer.

The extra light from the sun, moon, stars and outdoor lighting systems can greatly impact the presentation.

In those cases, rear projection is probably the most beneficial.

Rear-projectors sit behind the screen, which is specially designed to filter light through. That allows the images to be brighter, the colors to be more vibrant and no one will block the picture when they get up for a drink.


In just a few short months it will be warm enough to start enjoying your favorite movies and shows outdoors.

But there’s still plenty to learn! If you’re curious about how you can get the most out of your outdoor custom home theater system, let’s talk!
