Often times we get asked: What are nits? Nit: A measurement of luminance, or the intensity of visible light. One nit is equal to one candela per square meter. Nits are used to describe the brightness of LED Outdoor TV displays. You should always consider brightness before you think about bringing a TV outside!
So what does this mean exactly?
The number of nits are easily described when talking about LED TV panels. The average nit count for indoor televisions is between 250 and 350 nits. SkyVue makes their outdoor TVs ranging from 500 nits (Bright) to 700 nits (Ultra Bright). This allows for increased visibility while your Outdoor TV goes through it’s daily ‘sunny situations’.
If you were to bring your indoor TV outside on your patio, you would notice the display to be very dim looking compared to when you have your TV inside. This is because there are simply not enough nits in your indoor TVs display! Make sure while choosing which outdoor TV to invest in, to choose a TV that will supply you with enough nits for ideal clarity.
