Samsung introduced a series of all-weather TVs for use in open space (5 photos)


Tough competition in the television marketdevices forces Samsung to use innovative marketing and technological solutions to expand the range of products presented. The new high-tech line of Samsung Terrace televisions will be included in the lineup of lifestyle systems, which already feature Sero, Serif and Frame interior televisions. The eloquent name already indicates the fact that new televisions can be used on the street, in the open.

Samsung's Premier Street Consumer TVIt has a housing with dust and moisture protection that complies with the class of IP55 standard (protection of power and low-current wires from dust and water flows). The new Samsung Terrace will be able to work in the rain and in dusty environments.


Another feature of Samsung TVsTerrace is the high brightness of the QLED 4K screen, which is 2000 nits, whereas in standard television devices this value does not exceed 600 nits, and in office monitors it amounts to 300 nits. This technical characteristic will provide a comfortable viewing of television programs even during a sunny day, when the sun's rays directly fall on the TV screen. However, it will not be possible to celebrate the New Year with Samsung Terrace located on the street - the models are not designed to work in freezing temperatures.


Among the innovations can also be notedthe use of HDBaseT technology allows using a single cable and one connector to transmit video, audio and Internet content, as well as to provide power supply (up to 100W). By placing the connection block indoors, the developers provided additional protection against dust and moisture. Other types of connectors and connections in Samsung Terrace are not provided. However, there is the possibility of transmitting data via Wi-Fi 802.11ac and Bluetooth.

General specifications of Samsung modelsTerrace is similar to the flagship QLED 4K TVs, model line 2020. Outdoor TVs will be delivered to the market with three screen sizes: a 55-inch Samsung Terrace costs $ 3,500 in the US, a 65-inch TV costs $ 5,000, and a top-end model with a 75-inch screen costs $ 6,500.

Higher price for street tvs relatedwith the need to provide protection against moisture and dust. Existing SunBriteTV models are available at higher prices. For example, a model with a diagonal of 75 inches from competitors Samsung will cost $ 10,000. Despite the need to ensure the tightness of the case, Samsung engineers were able to provide TVs with a modern design with thin frames and a minimum thickness not exceeding 59 mm.


In case consumers need moremore powerful than Samsung Terrace's built-in 20W speaker system, the company offers a separate Terrace Soundbar, which has the same protection class against external influences that complies with the IP55 standard.

Currently, Samsung Terrace TVs are alreadysold in the US and Canada and will soon be available in Europe, Australia and New Zealand. In the future, the company plans to bring to the market a professional version of street TVs.
