Samsung today announced The Terrace, its first outdoor 4K QLED TV that is specifically designed for harsh environment involving light rain, sunlight and dust.

A Samsung Australia spokesperson told ChannelNews: "The Terrace TV and accompanied soundbar range from Samsung are exciting additions to a growing portfolio of TV and audio products that are created to provide specific home entertainment experiences". The 4K QLED smart TV and accompanying soundbar are specifically created to bring the indoor entertainment experience outside.

The Terrace offers a crystal-clear display with a brightness level of 2,000 nits, to increase visibility in all sorts of outdoor conditions, especially in bright daylight.

It also offers a high motion rate that provides clear, lifelike picture quality that is ideal for motion-intensive content, the company said.

For safe use outside, the TV comes with IP55-rated resistance, capable of protecting the display from limited dust ingress and low-pressure water jets from any direction. Meanwhile, a "professional model" will be available for business customers during the summer of 2020. "It's a center for entertainment, a source for news, a hub for exercise, and it helps us stay connected at work", says James Fishler, senior vice president of the Home Entertainment Division at Samsung Electronics America.

The Terrace TV and soundbar are available now. Dolby audio is supported too, and the televisions can output 20 watts via integrated two-channel speakers, though a companion soundbar is available - which is also IP55 weather-resistant. These include Bixby, Amazon Alexa, and possibly Google Assistant in the future.

The Terrace TV is now available to consumers in the United States and Canada. It features distortion-cancelling technology to deliver a deep and clear bass sound from its built-in woofers, according to the company.

Imagine this: Samsung didn't have an outdoor, 4K QLED TV in its portfolio - until now.

The Frame: For consumers who want their TV to be part of and enhance their decor, The Frame is a high-performance TV when it's on, and a dazzling art display when it's off. The 55-inch model is $3,455, the 65-inch is $4,999, and the 75-inch display is $6,499.

The Sero: The Sero, which means "vertical" in Korean, brings what people love about smartphones to the TV.
