CE Pro 100 Names Top Outdoor Video Brands
SunBriteTV expanded its lead over Séura, followed by MirageVision and Peerless AV with single digits.
CE Pro's annual Brand Analysis study surveys the top 100 highest-revenue residential integration firms, otherwise known as the CE Pro 100, to determine their preferred brands in the categories of audio, video, home automation, networking, lighting control, security and more.
In this category-by-category breakdown, senior editor Bob Archer delivers an in-depth look at the most frequently used manufacturers in 55 product categories. The numbers associated with each manufacturer reflect the number of CE Pro 100 dealers using that brand.
After a couple of years of flat numbers, the Outdoor Video category boasted growth.
SunBriteTV expanded its lead over Séura. The latter company, however, places in the TV Displays category as well, which may reflect its product diversity that includes mirror TVs along with commercial and residential outdoor solutions.
Meanwhile, integrators also report installing indoor TVs outside at the insistence of some clients.
SunBriteTV (SnapAV): 70
