YOLO TV 158" AUSTIN, TX
"The clarity is amazing. I cannot believe how bright it is... even with sunlight directly shining down on it. It is easy to see. Couldn't be happier."
Rooftop Pole Mount
After searching for a solution that would provide a TV that was big enough, and bright enough to be seen in daylight, plus, was impervious to the high winds, rain and heat in Austin, TX – the client found YOLO TV. After exchanging a couple of pictures of the area, and conducting an on-site survey, we were able to work with the client to help make his vision for an incredible outdoor entertaining space come to fruition. With help from his AV team, we integrated the YOLO TV with a Control 4 automation system to provide easy access and use of the TV.
The Control 4 system was also able to seamlessly provide a split screen into four (4) sections. The four sections each have their own input, so they are displaying different signals, and they can be arranged in just about any way, ie (four equal sized screens, one large screen and three smaller ones on the bottom, or on the top of either sides. This amazing entertainment oasis is a true diamond in the rough of Austin Hill Country.
Tasks and Challenges
The biggest challenge was on the installation itself. The YOLO TV was mounted on the backside of two stacked train cargo containers. To reach the back of the TV was over 20ft in the air. So, we worked with the client to install a service platform on the backside of the containers and level with the TV so that our team could safely install and service the TV as needed.
Further, because the TV faces South, direct Sunlight was an initial concern of the client. Could he clearly see the TV in daylight? Our TVs are the brightest on the market today, boasting nearly 6000 nits of brightness (nearly 6 times brighter than any other TV built today.)
The answer was a resounding… Yes!
