Enjoy Fun and Friends Again with an Outdoor Sound and Video System
Here Comes the Sun! Welcome the Warmer Season in Style.
As the Beatles said, “It’s been a long, cold, lonely winter.” If we’re honest, some of us felt that way about the entire last year. Last spring’s weather didn’t disappoint, but the experience wasn’t the same. We are hopeful that this year will be a return to normal with entertaining friends and family around the pool and grill once again.
Make sure your outdoor space is ready for entertaining with an outdoor sound system, TV, and shades as well as customized lighting and heat lamps. At Fusion Audio + Video, we believe outdoor entertainment areas are just as customizable as indoor areas, such as home theaters. We can discuss your options and provide professional guidance as you are choosing products so that we can design your setup. In this blog, we’ll discuss three must-have products and our brand recommendations for each.
FILL THE OPEN AIR WITH MUSIC!
We would argue that music sets the mood for social gatherings, bringing energy and relaxation as you connect with your guests. Music takes on a different feel outdoors. The sonic experience embodies a more open, airy, and gregarious feel almost instantly once you step outside.
Origin Acoustics offers some favorites for outdoor sound systems. Their attractive Landscape Bollard Speakers deliver full-dispersion sound and produce true low, mid and high frequencies across a wide swath of yard. Add two of these and implement a subwoofer for even greater depth and coverage. The brand’s Seasons Landscape and Acoustic Landscape collections boast receivers, satellite speakers, and a subwoofer. If you want something more discreet, Origin Acoustics also makes powerful loudspeakers in rock shapes, perfect for adding to a showstopping garden area. For the most immersive and premium listening experience, check out Origin's Ambisonic landscape systems starting at $10,000.
WATCH FROM WHEREVER
Nothing says luxury like hosting your own swim-up movie, drink in hand, or watching the big game with your friends while grilling dinner. But the only way to make this happen is to get a display that’s engineered for outdoor use and offers a crystal-clear, vivid picture.
Outdoor TVs like those from Samsung Terrace or SunBriteTV provide stunning pictures, paired with weatherproof hardware that thrives all year outside. Whether you’re dreaming of adding a display to a sunny area or a shaded one, both manufacturers provide various brightness models to accommodate both, so you don’t have to compromise your vision. Their full-sun models are up to three times brighter than indoor TVs, but they never look washed out, even when the sun is beaming right on them.
You’ll also be glad to know you’re not sacrificing image quality, since both models feature 4K UHD resolution with HDR, giving you the same vivid color spectrum and high-pixel density you’d expect from a home theater or media room TV.
STAY COOL ALL SUMMER
Progressive Screens creates motorized screening solutions for basically everything outdoors, from patios to garages, from lanais to gazebos. You can even add these shades to outside eating areas, carports, and entryways.
We all know it gets hot in the Carolinas, especially when winter seemingly transitions right into summer. With Progressive Screens, touch one button to roll down heat protection and shield yourself from insects in one move. We recommend this brand because of its self-smoothing MagnaTrack solution. Though zipper-operated screen brands look disheveled, MagnaTrack automatically straightens any wrinkles as it moves up or down, lending your space a tidy appearance - hands-free!
