Outdoor LCD TV manufacturer Pantel adds 3 new models Pantel, which already produces weatherproof LCD HDTVs with 32 and 42 inch screens, is adding new models with screen sizes of 20, 52, and 65 inches. The new models will be making their debut later this month at InfoComm 2008, held in Las Vegas from June 18 - 20.
The 52 and 65 inch models feature 1080p native resolution and a 2000:1 contrast ratio. The 20" model feature a progressive resolution of 1366x768 at a contrast ratio of 700:1. The existing 32 and 42 inch models feature a native 1080i resolution and a contrast ratio of 1600:1.

Prices for the new HDTVs will range from $2,999 for the 20 inch model to $25,999 for the 65 inch version.

Pantel Outdoor Weatherproof TVs have changed the way people entertain,” said Joe Pantel, CEO of Pantel Corp. in a press release. “With the weather being a threat to what most people can do outside to entertain, Pantel Corp. makes it easy without worry. Now, we offer even more solutions with five different screen sizes to meet the needs of nearly every application.”

“Our new larger screen sizes, the 65- and 52-inch, will make for the ultimate outdoor home theater experience. They can also be utilized for large venue consumer or commercial applications where bigger screens are required,” added Pantel.

All of Pantel's outdoor TVs are designed to be "rain/snow shielded," "wind/dust shielded," and feature screens the company says are suitable for "outdoor daytime use." They can be used in environments ranging from -40 degrees to 140 degrees Fahrenheit (-40 degress to 60 degrees Celsius).
