It’s already summer, so if you’ve been looking longingly at your dull backyard, it’s time to turn it into a year-round outdoor paradise.
With some music, video distribution, and some smart lighting, your yard will be a place that’s ready to entertain, whether it’s just the family or a community cookout.
But installing the right A/V equipment for outdoors is essential; using indoor equipment means a higher chance of damage and higher replacement costs. That’s why it’s crucial to work with a local and experienced California audio-visual installation team to help plan an outdoor entertaining space that will last.
These three ideas will get you started on your new entertainment space.
Install an outdoor television screen so you can watch the big game or the season finale of your favorite show. Take things a step further and get a projector and a portable screen for night-time movie watching.
Sound travels a lot differently outside, which means speaker placement needs to be strategic. Too few speakers and you’ll have “dead spots” in your yard, and the wrong placement can mean your neighbors hear your music louder than you do.
You’ll need the right remote to control all of your outdoor A/V elements, but you want something that will stand up to the outdoors. Your remote should be waterproof, large enough to see, and ideally in a color that will make it stand out, even at night.
