8 Outdoor Video Systems That Deliver Value and Performance
Companies serving the rapidly improving outdoor video category are engineering solutions to rival traditional indoor A/V components.

It wasn’t all that long ago that outdoor A/V was looked at as an add-on option to whole-house entertainment systems. Back then outdoor A/V installations were often simple pairs of under-eave speakers on a patio or some rock speakers scattered throughout a property.
The outdoor A/V market has evolved a great deal in a short time period, however, and many solutions now rival indoor counterparts.
Sophisticated, elegant and powerful, today’s outdoor A/V systems are capable of delivering state-of-the-art performance such as 4K Ultra HD video and object-based surround sound through myriad technical and design innovations.
Many of these products employ technologies from the commercial market like robust displays that can withstand the harshest environmental elements.
Seasoned companies that operated in the outdoor A/V market a decade ago remain important category drivers. Pushing the market forward, there’s also a number of traditional A/V companies that have recently entered the market, as well as an influx of commercial product manufacturers that see opportunities within the residential space.
Take a look at the accompanying slideshow and consider these 8 video products for your next outdoor A/V project.
