Shade Series™ Outdoor TV
Sunny days and rising temperatures mean one thing is on your mind — outdoor leisure time.
If you’re like so many Americans and are looking to expand on your available living space by bringing the indoors to your outdoor shaded patio, deck, or cabana, you’re going to want to keep reading.
You’ve invested in furnishing these spaces with comfortable furniture and even pillows that make it feel like you’re lounging inside, but you’re probably missing one key piece — the TV. And let’s face it. You like to watch TV, whether it’s sports, news, or your favorite crime drama.
With the ability to withstand temperatures from -24° F to 122° F, Séura’s Shade Series is designed to be the perfect complement to your elaborate outdoor living space. It’s the piece that takes your design to the max and pulls the room together. It’s the piece you have to have.
Equipped with High Dynamic Range, Séura’s Shade Series TV provides high contrast between bright and dark colors for the best outdoor picture in the industry. Its 4K UHD picture clarity — four times the resolution of regular HD — has amazingly sharp details that immerse you in the moment. And because this TV is up to 60 percent brighter than indoor TVs and 12 percent brighter than the competition, you can be certain the view from your backyard can’t be beat.
To make sure you’re catching every word, Séura audio engineers designed the full line of outdoor soundbars with front-facing speakers powered by an industry-leading 50-watt or optional 60-watt RMS two-channel amplifier that is almost three times more powerful than the competition's TV-powered speakers.

Emerging Outdoor Space Trends
Maybe you’re looking to complete a full backyard overhaul, or maybe you just want to freshen up your outdoor living space to match today’s popular design styles. Whatever your intent, something on our list of favorites is sure to catch your eye.
Preserving the health of our environment isn’t a trend — it’s a necessity. We’ve noticed in 2019 that patio furniture designers are stepping up to the challenge by coming out with a variety of materials and development techniques to minimize environmental impact.
We’re wholeheartedly embracing minimalist design when it comes to outdoor spaces. Let’s face it — the elements can be messy, and nobody wants to be left picking up broken pieces (literally) after a storm blows through. Streamlined silhouettes, functional materials, and uncluttered surfaces are all important elements to weave in.
This space is outdoors, afterall, so don’t be afraid to entangle your hardscapes with the landscape. Plank-style pavers are one way to achieve a fade-away look and entwine foliage with your patio or walkway.
When you’ve made your outdoor space an extension of your home, it only makes sense to maximize your time outdoors by cooking there, too.
Really, though, the countless grilling options can seem intimidating to the average backyard BBQer. So we’ve rounded up some of our favorite quick tips from the pros. Follow them and you’re sure to have perfect results every time!
1. Skip the gas
If there’s one thing experts can agree on, it’s that charcoal, wood chips, and split logs are the way to go. We get the convenience of gas, but flavor comes from smoke, which is an ingredient in itself.
2. Soak wood chips in water
This is one that’s always up for debate. But in our experience, soaking your chips in water for at least an hour (and overnight if you’re really ambitious!) prior to starting helps produce more smoke to increase flavor. After you drain the water, wrap them in an aluminum foil “burrito” and place them in the grill.
Always get your grill up to temperature before you start. It not only creates an optimal cooking environment, but it kills any leftover bacteria on your grill grates. Your grill should be 400-450° F for high, 350-400° F for medium-high, 300-350° F for medium, and 250-300° F for low heat. A properly heated grill sears foods on contact, keeps the insides moist, and helps prevent sticking.
4. Oil the cooking surface
Even on a new, clean grill, lean meats and poultry may stick. Our favorite way to create a nonstick surface on your grates is by using tongs to rub an oil-soaked paper towel over them. Never use cooking oil spray on a hot grill.
5. Use an instant-read thermometer
The only way to know for sure when your meat is cooked to your satisfaction is by using a thermometer. Take the guesswork out by investing in a digital, instant-read version.
6. Let it rest
Give your protein about five minutes to rest before digging in. This allows the juices to distribute evenly, which seals in the moisture and prevents it from drying out.
