Introducing an Exciting New Option for Your Outdoor Home Theater
Samsung’s New Terrace TV Brings Superb QLED Picture Quality Outside
As a recovering home theater company, we love to talk about home theaters. And when the weather is warm, we love talking about moving the home theater outside. After all, now that drive-ins are practically extinct, how else can we enjoy summer movie nights under the stars?
We are only joking about the recovering part – we are still very much into home theaters! GHT Group is always excited to bring you new options for outdoor technology, and you can even see and experience many of them at our Marietta showroom. Recently, Samsung announced its first foray into outdoor TV, with the new Terrace line. What makes it perfect for an outdoor home theater setup at your Brookhaven, GA home? We’re going to cover that below!
QLED Goes Outdoors
If you follow TV technology at all, you might know about QLED, which stands for quantum dot LED. Without going into the weeds on the technology, Samsung has pioneered and devoted significant resources to advancing QLED as an alternative to OLED for the best picture quality. One of the main advantages of QLED over other display technologies is its ability to display a wide color gamut, even superior to OLED when implemented at the highest quality levels. And QLED panels can achieve excellent brightness levels under various lighting conditions.
Wide color gamut and superior brightness also bode particularly well for outdoor environments. Outdoor TVs need to contend with oft-changing lighting during the day and need to be capable of producing excellent brightness and contrast in both light or dark conditions.
Outdoor-Rated and More
Any outdoor TV needs to be built to withstand the elements, be they heat, cold, or wetness. Samsung's Terrace TVs are IP55 rated, so they're protected from dust intrusion and even an errant hose spray. Beyond weather protection, this high-end QLED set brings technology that adds to a great viewing experience.
The QLED panel can achieve an outstanding 2000 nits of brightness, so you can watch on a sunny day. An anti-reflective screen coating reduces glare, so colors pop and contrast isn't washed out. A full-array backlight precisely controls brightness across the display for deep blacks, vivid color, and superb contrast. The adaptive picture feature changes the brightness and contrast settings automatically depending on the ambient light levels, assuring an optimized picture all day long. And Samsung's advanced Quantum HDR brings brilliant detail and color to the images in any light.
Easy Connections and Control
The Terrace TV comes with a built-in HBase-T receiver, which creates a simple way to feed content from a media distribution system. Of course, it is also a Smart TV with Wi-Fi, so it stands alone with access to broadcast TV and all the popular streaming applications through Samsung’s intuitive Tizen TV operating system. Built-in Bluetooth connectivity lets your pipe the sound through another speaker for heftier sound or to keep up with the game audio when you're away from the set. The TV also has convenient screen mirroring capability through Apple Airplay and for Android devices so you can cast practically any video from your smartphone or tablet to the Terrace TV.
Rounding out the control options, an IP56 rated water and dust resistant remote controls the TV, and also gives you a microphone to access Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant, and Samsung’s Bixby for smart home voice control and content searches.
Don’t Forget the Sound
While GHT Group can build you a custom outdoor sound system for both music and movie sound, you might be interested in knowing about the new matching Terrace soundbar for the TV. It is also IP55 rated, has a built-in subwoofer, can connect to the TV wirelessly, and sports a unique distortion cancellation technology for powerful outdoor sound. It also features music streaming through both Bluetooth and Wi-Fi for a convenient outdoor music speaker.
Available in 65 and 75-inch screen sizes, GHT Group is excited to offer a new option for your outdoor TV and home theater pleasure. To learn more, contact us here, or click below to quickly connect with one of our audio-video experts. We look forward to working with you!
