New waterproof TVs for ISE 20119 December 2010
Aquavision will be exhibiting its latest waterproof TVs at ISE 2011.
All Aquavision televisions are now LED LCD delivering improved contrast, brighter colours and reduced mounting depth. The new range consists of a 19” 1080p HD Ready screen and 26”, 32” and 40” 1080p full HD screens. The new eco-friendly LEDs are said to consume up to 40% less energy than conventional sets and run on low power 24 Volts, so they can be mounted safely in any environment. Also included in the new range will be DVB-T2 Tuners for Freeview HD (UK) / MPEG 4 (Europe) and ATSC Tuners for US markets. In addition to the RS232 control, discrete IR and Sky Link, Aquavision is now offering the option of IP connection opening up a whole new world of home entertainment possibilities allowing control over IP and access to the internet and web services such as the catch up TV service, You Tube videos and Facebook. Free Apps to allow control with an iPhone or iPod will also be released.
Also new to Aquavision is a wall mounting option for all screen sizes allowing a fully sealed IP65 television solution but without the need to recess the unit into a wall.
Two new LED waterproof televisions will be launched in the Flamingo range – 19” and 26” – mainly for contractors, hoteliers and developers. Custom options such as custom design and build, glass colour, company logos on the glass and start-up screens are available.
Aquavision’s Outdoor range will now include a new Full HD 40” daylight visible model which can be left outside all the year round. It allows the screen to be viewed in direct sunlight and is therefore suited for installation on the patio or by the swimming pool. This fully sealed, freestanding model which can also be wall mounted, is fully waterproof to IP65 and can withstand temperature ranges from +50ºC to -30 ºC.
The new Picture Frame televisions will be unveiled at ISE. The Full HD 1080p LED TVs are mounted behind MirrorVision glass and offered with a wide range of frame designs. AquaVision says that both the 32” and 40” Picture Frame models are perfect for living rooms, bedrooms or anywhere a high quality television is required to be discreetly displayed in a mirror frame. When the screen is on a high quality image is clearly seen – but when it is off, the glass takes the form of a mirror.
The Bespoke Range will also be available with Aquavision’s new LED LCD range of screens. These specially made televisions feature the LED screen behind MirrorVision or fully mirrored glass.
