EXCLUSIVE RESEARCH
OUTDOOR TECHNOLOGY DEEP DIVE STUDY

Breaking it down further, 10% of outdoor video projects had a projector and 9%
had a projection screen. That means a certain percentage of those projection-based
installations simply displayed the image on
a wall or some other surface. The data represents the third year in a row that the use
of outdoor projection has increased. Back
in 2018, it was just 3% of projects.
About 12% of outdoor TV projects
included a weatherproof enclosure. Large
format LED screens that you might see
on site during a golf tournament are also
growing in popularity, but are still certainly
a niche market.
According to survey respondents, the
top brands being used in outdoor TVs,
projectors, mounts and enclosures are
SunBrite/SnapAV, Samsung, LG Elite,
Peerless-AV, Séura, TCL, Barco, Digital
Projection, Chief and Apollo.
Landscape lighting is also a relatively
new category for integrators but a growing one. According to the study, 32% of
all outdoor projects included some form
of landscape lighting. Interestingly, dealers
report that clients still do not recognize that
integrators can solve their landscape lighting needs. Exactly two-thirds of respondents
(67%) report that clients do not ask them
about exterior lighting at all. About onethird of the time, the clients want landscape
lighting for aesthetic reasons, while 37% of

Create Year-Round Outdoor Entertainment
What may have seemed unthinkable a
few years ago is now growing remarkably in popularity - the outdoor TV
market. In a world of quarantine and
isolation, having the ability to watch
TV outside with a friend or two, while
seated a safe distance apart, has been
an entertaining solution for many
people during the pandemic.
Without having to worry about getting too close or being inside together,
consumers can now solve these issues with an outdoor TV. No matter the reason
for considering, outdoor entertainment dreams are becoming a reality for homes
across North America.

connect to the device for smart TV compatibility.
