Stealth Acoustics has made two significant additions to its Stealth Patio Theater (SPT) LED-based range of outdoor entertainment solutions. Expanding from the original, retractable SPT display, now named Extreme, Stealth has added the Transformer 120in fold-away LED TV system and the Megalith modular outdoor TV screen which is available in custom sizes up to 275in.
The maker says the new SPT Transformer is a revolutionary hidden outdoor theater system designed to fold away into its ‘weatherized’, fiberglass enclosure and fit discretely on a yacht or home deck. With all electronics housed within the unit, including built-in LCR speakers and subwoofers, the Transformer is a 120in LED screen that can be deployed as a fixed or a mobile solution. It remains completely hidden from view and protected from the elements when not in use. The screen unfolds silently on demand from its custom designed enclosure thanks to a smooth, automated lifting mechanism, whilst its fiberglass finish ensures maximum flexibility when meeting customer design goals.
Another outdoor viewing option is the new SPT Megalith. This fixed display option features a completely weatherproof, ultra-bright 120in LED screen and provides an alternative to projection-based systems. Its modular design ensures that it can be configured in different shapes and sizes to suit outdoor installation requirements. The Megalith also has the flexibility to be paired with custom audio from Stealth’s range for a complete outdoor solution or it can simply be used for artwork display.
“With entertainment lifestyles moving out-of-doors, these new SPT innovations give customers amazing entertainment solutions that can be seen with the daylight viewable LED screens and heard with our award-winning outdoor speakers and amplifier technology,” says Brian Azzano, Global Sales Director at Stealth Acoustics. “Unlike repurposed indoor projectors and screens, SPT systems are specifically designed for outdoor use, reliably reproducing vibrant and colorful images even in broad daylight. These new high-performance SPT options will allow integrators to deliver an outstanding solution for their customers outside of the home, whatever the location or viewing preference.”
The original, retractable SPT Extreme is still available in 103in, 130in, 155in and 184in screen sizes. Supplied in either 1800 Nits or 5000 Nits of output for exceptional high brightness performance, all SPT options are available with built-in high-performance environmental Stealth speakers and subwoofers in 3.1 or 5.1 audio configurations. The SPT Extreme enclosures are custom built for each order out of marine-grade Baltic plywood, which are then spar-varnished inside and out to create a ‘boat-like’ quality of construction to safely protect the screen and high-strength lifts mounted inside. Exterior finish options are at the choice of the customer or designer and may consist of paint, faux finishes, custom graphics or select textures.
Stealth manufactures its own LED screens in a Washington State factory under the Dimensional Display Systems (DDS) brand and says it offers virtually any LED screen solution imaginable, including its competitively-priced, UL48 listed, Image Cell modular indoor screen system, available in both P3 and P5 resolutions.
