AVAD has entered into a distribution agreement, effective immediately, with Southern California-based SunBriteTV, manufacturer of all-weather outdoor TV technology. Attendees to CEDIA EXPO 2009, in Atlanta, had the opportunity to demo SunBriteTV products as part of AVAD’s “One Call Does it All” presentation at the show.
Through the partnership, SunBriteTV gains access to AVAD’s network of more than 10,000 certified dealers and installers, significantly expanding its reach within the custom installation market. AVAD had partnered previously with SunBriteTV competitor, Pantel.
“The addition of SunBriteTV’s innovative product line gives our dealers an opportunity to enhance the patio, backyard, and poolside entertainment experience for their clients,” AVAD VP and general manager, Jim Annes, said. “Our dealers now have greater flexibility and functionality when choosing and designing outdoor systems for their customers.”
SunBrite offers five TV models, ranging from 23 to 55 inches, including accessories to include wall/ceiling mounts, FM radio, dust covers, and water resistant remote controls. SunBriteTV’s all-weather design stands up to rain, dust, insects, and extreme temperature variations from -24 to 122 degrees Fahrenheit, which makes it inherently suitable to both residential and commercial applications.
“SunBriteTV is excited to be in a partnership with one the most respected and prestigious distributors in the country,” SunBriteTV’s vice president of sales, Lynn Stearn, said. “We look forward to introducing the SunBriteTV brand to AVAD’s vast network of installers, and to heighten awareness to the sales opportunities that await in backyards across the U.S. and Canada.”
Installers now have the opportunity to demo SunBriteTV’s products at each of AVAD’s 28 North American facilities.
