Now that spring is officially upon us, warmer temperatures are calling our names. Like most people, we’re excited to get outside and start enjoying the nice weather! In thinking about all the activities we’re looking forward to doing, as true AV professionals, we also know that now more than ever, people will be noticing outdoor AV solutions.

From amusement parks to outdoor malls to town centers, here are some of the key AV solutions that are sure to be seen.

Smart City Kiosk

Smart City Kiosks Show the Way

The Smart City Kiosk is perfect for sharing community, travel, and weather-related information for wayfinding, advertising, entertainment, and other purposes. Each kiosk is outfitted with our Xtreme™ High Bright Outdoor Displays, which feature full HD1080p resolution for a bright, crisp picture, even in direct sunlight. We also offer an optional infrared touch overlay, making the kiosk interactive for users and allowing them to easily find the information they’re looking for.

We specifically designed this kiosk to fit into urban landscapes so that cities and towns can place it along its sidewalks, boardwalks, and so on, without worrying about unsuitable aesthetics. Even the paint color is customizable so universities, sports facilities, and other themed organizations can match the kiosk to its branding motif.

Most importantly, the kiosk is both practical and durable to make installation, maintenance, and long-term use feasible. Not only is it able to withstand winds of up to 140 mph, but the display within is fully sealed and can operate without cooling fans. Installation and maintenance are also seamless, without the need for cranes or forklifts, and easy access to the display.

UltraView UHD Outdoor TV

UltraView™ UHD Outdoor TVs Entertain Foodies

Outdoor seating is finally available again now that winter is over, so you can bet more and more customers will be asking to dine outside. So, how can restaurant owners continue to entertain guests with the sports game, news, and other content that indoor diners have access to? That’s where our outdoor TV comes in.

The UltraView™ UHD Outdoor TV is exceptionally bright and colorful with 4K resolution and an IPS panel that allows the display to be viewed from any angle. With these features, our TV meets the official standards of ultra-high-definition displays, making it perfect for outdoor use when the sun is at its brightest.

As temperatures begin to warm up, TV owners don’t have to worry about the risk of isotropic blackouts (when overheating causes parts of the LCD display to shut down until it cools off). Even when the TV is exposed to direct sunlight, the High TNI panel will prevent that issue from occurring. Being all-weather rated, the UltraView™ UHD Outdoor TV can handle a temperature range of -22°F to 122°F, making it usable in just about any climate.

What About April Showers?

Just because some spring days bring rainy weather doesn’t mean businesses won’t be needing outdoor digital signage solutions. For days when restaurant-goers don’t want to get out of the car for their food, our Outdoor Digital Menu Board can help.

The digital features and relatively inexpensive operating cost of this board make it easy for fast food restaurants to exhibit menu offerings to drivers. Rather than dealing with the hassle of manually switching out lettering whenever the menu changes, the digital display can be updated remotely with the ease that any efficient, fast-paced eatery requires.

The Outdoor Digital Menu Board is all-weather rated, meaning it can handle rain, wind, and even winter snow (when it inevitably returns). The incorporated Xtreme™ High Bright Outdoor Display also guarantees readability whenever the sun is shining. Meanwhile, the menu board comes with a stylish aesthetic thanks to a slim design that requires no bulky enclosures or fans. So, it will fit right in with the exterior of any eatery.
