Here Comes the Sun


“Keep close to Nature’s heart… break clear away, once in a while, and climb a mountain or spend a week in the woods. Wash your spirit clean.”


That’s a quote from John Muir, the noted naturalist and Father of America’s National Parks. Granted, few of us will climb a mountain or have time for a week in the woods, but with winter’s days behind us we will be able to enjoy more time outdoors. For much of that time we will be close to home, in our gardens and yards and on our patios and decks.

A recent landscaping survey reported that more than a quarter of home owners said their outdoor living area was significantly larger than inside their homes, and the survey also noted the increased investments home owners are making outdoors. These investments encompass many elements – plants, shrubs, pools and fire pits, outdoor kitchens, furniture – and technology is also a major component in the design or upgrade of outdoor living space. Yes, homeowners and their families today want to extend the pleasure and convenience of their inside lives to the fresh air and open skies.

Hanson Audio Video can work with you or your contractor to design a state-of-the-art outdoor entertainment environment that was not possible until recently.

Engineers at Hanson A.V. can deliver the good, better, best and ultimate TV, sound systems and other products to enhance your outdoor surroundings. They know and install the finest quality components, yet remain sensitive to the constraints of your budget. Major advances in audio and video technology as well as home automation make it possible to adapt your outdoor space to reflect the lifestyle of you and your family.

Outdoor video has achieved new heights in performance quality, Hanson AV officials note. The breakthrough came with Adaptive Picture Technology, a feature that adjusts backlight brightness and picture contrast in response to changes in outdoor lighting. This was accomplished by creating picture mode variations made up of 100 brightness settings and 10 LCD picture adjustment settings.
With Adaptive Picture Technology, your display gradually adapts to changes in ambient lighting for a smooth transition throughout the duration of your show.

And outdoor TVs are waterproof, dustproof, bugproof and can be cleaned with a garden hose. They are climate controlled and can work well in all seasons. Ultra-High Definition (UHD) 4K picture clarity is four times the resolution of regular HD, providing the perfect picture on game day and movie night.

Hanson A.V. has outdoor audio covered with a wide range of high-quality speakers designed to enhance a variety of environments – an expansive yard, poolside, on the deck or as part of your entertainment center. Speakers can be concealed in flower beds and planters, attached to wall surfaces or proudly displayed to allow form to complement function. Independent of their configuration, the quality sound will be calibrated to that space.

Hanson A.V. can sell and install surveillance cameras and provide automation and single-app control for lighting, security, TV, audio and more.

In addition, Hanson’s trained and certified engineers provide system support from the beginning of your project through product selection, implementation and on-going support. Hanson’s service team can provide proactive support to monitor the wellness of your system and provide remote repair – many times before you even realize you have a problem. The team even has an extended service plan that offers 24/7/365 service support.
