Christie has outdoor flatpanels to brave all weathers4 February 2013
The new Christie WeatherAll series of LED-backlit LCD outdoor flatpanels have been designed for ruggedness, versatility and to survive outdoor environments not typically suited to standard LCD panels as they can cope with a temperature range from +45º Celsius to -20º. The first WeatherAll panel is the 55-in FHD551-W, a professional grade, IP56-rated Full HD display that can withstand rain, sleet, snow, and human interaction.
“The WeatherAll Series is designed to be the clear choice in an outdoor weatherproof display solution,” says Frank Anzures, senior product manager, Christie. “The Christie FHD551-W is easy to maintain while providing robustness and the vivid picture quality needed when presenting your message outdoors.”
The FHD551-W features optically bonded glass for increased protection against harsh impacts and scratches while enhancing viewability in outdoor venues by reducing reflection, increasing sunlight readability by up to 400%. It offers high contrast, rich vibrant colours, and superior brightness to overcome high ambient light. It can be used in landscape or portrait mode and has integrated speakers.
