June 13, 2006 We understand ruggedised laptops, mobile phones and digital cameras, but didn’t realise the trend had taken hold to this extent … the ruggedised teev! Homeowners can now enjoy their favorite TV show or DVD in the comfort of their own backyard, with the new SunBriteTV 32-inch HD-ready all-weather LCD television that is designed for outdoor installation.

Model 3200HD-Pro is a 32-inch HD-ready all-weather outdoor LCD television that projects a 1366 x 768 pixel image, 800 nits of brightness, and a 1200:1 contrast ratio. The TV's sleek and stylish consumer design belies the industrial outdoor durability this product offers. The corrosion-resistant, powder-coated aluminum enclosure protects the internal TV components from rain, dirt, insects and other outdoor elements. Built into the enclosure is an anti-reflective, impact- and scratch-resistant window that protects the TV screen. The speakers and user-friendly operating controls are sealed against rain and moisture.

Model 3200HD-Pro addresses extreme climate conditions with a baffled and filtered, dual-fan airflow system that quietly keeps the unit cool in temperatures up to 122 degrees. In cold climates, the internal thermostatically-controlled heater activates automatically when the TV's internal temperature dips to 32 degrees F. The heater provides a 20-degree F temperature rise, allowing the TV to safely remain outdoors in temperatures as low as -24 degrees F.

SunBriteTV's innovative watertight cable entry system accepts nearly all video sources, including off-the-air antenna, cable TV, satellite TV, DVD players and PCs. The pass-through design ensures quick and easy hook-up.

The standard accessories that ship with Model 3200HD-Pro include the SunBriteTV's new water-resistant remote control with long-life lithium batteries, and a removable table-top stand.

For optimum viewing, an articulating wall mount that allows for horizontal extension, lateral rotation, tilt and swivel functions is an available option. For additional placement choices, a deck/planter pole mount is also available. The pole can be set in concrete, or bolted directly to a flat surface such as a patio or pool deck. The pole and supporting flange are made from heavy-gauge aluminum and are powder-coated to eliminate corrosion. Complete with the articulating mount, users have virtually unlimited viewing options.

Also available from SunBriteTV, is Model 2010A-Pro, a 20-inch TV that projects a super-bright, high-resolution 800 x 600 pixel image with 16.7 million colors, and boasts 1000 nits of brightness and 500:1 contrast ratio.

SunBriteTV offers a one-year, in-factory, parts and labor warranty with both models. Model 2010A-Pro is available immediately with an MSRP of US$2495. Model 3200HD-Pro has an MSRP of US$4495.
