Pantel (www.panteltv.com), brings excitement to marine, residential, and commercial outdoor entertaining applications by currently offering two LCD HDTVs in 32-inch and 42-inch screen sizes (additional sizes TBA). Now shipping, Pantel featured the luxurious, yet affordable, outdoor weatherproof TVs at the recent 2008 Orange County Boat Show, held in Anaheim, Calif. from April 3-6 at the Orange County Convention Center.
“Every season, consumer interest in marine and residential outdoor luxury, as well as commercial A/V applications, continues to grow,” explained Joe Pantel, Chief Executive Officer of Surfside Concepts and Pantel Corp. “Our Pantel line of outdoor weatherproof TVs is revolutionizing the way boats, back yards, sports stadiums, restaurants, golf courses, as well as many other commercial and residential applications take advertising and standard cable or satellite TV viewing outdoors. Pantel’s line of weatherproof LCD HDTVs is also protected against marine environments, making them the perfect addition to houseboats, yachts, and cabin cruisers that are susceptible to occasional sea spray and the salty air.”
Outdoor residential and commercial entertainment used to be a very concerning and expensive project due to the threat of unpredictable weather. High definition TVs used outdoors had to be utilized under canopies or other types of overhangs, but that still did not always protect them from cold, heat, wind, and dust. Pantel TVs now allow homeowners and businesses to break free from the hassle, excessive expense, and these constant concerns thrown at them by Mother Nature. Besides residential use, such as on patios and in the back yard, Pantel outdoor weatherproof LCD HDTVs are perfect for commercial applications such as amusement parks, concert venues, race tracks, sports arenas/stadiums, outdoor exhibitions, restaurants, bars, hotels, and more.
Beyond being weatherproof, Pantel TVs come complete with an industry leading 802.11a wireless package that allows the user to broadcast audio and video wirelessly up to 150 feet.
