Pantel Weatherproof LCD HDTVs Bring the Entire Party Outside

Currently Available in 32- and 42-Inch Screen Sizes, Pantel's LCD HDTVs Resist the Elements, Allowing Residential and Commercial Customers the Ultimate Outdoor Luxury Viewing Option

GARDEN GROVE, Calif., March 27, 2008 - Torn between staying inside to watch the game or swimming in the pool with friends and family? Now you can do both.


Pantel (www.panteltv.com), the worldwide leader in outdoor weatherproof TV solutions, brings excitement to both residential and commercial outdoor entertaining by currently offering two LCD HDTVs in 32 -inch and 42 -inch screen sizes (additional sizes TBA). Now shipping, Pantel's luxurious, yet affordable, outdoor weatherproof TVs are available through a select, yet growing, dealer base.

"Every season, consumer interest in residential outdoor luxury and 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 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."

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 RF wireless package that allows the user to broadcast HD audio and video wirelessly up to 150 feet.

Additional features of Pantel's outdoor weatherproof LCD HDTVs include:
• Native resolution: 720p (1336 x 768)
• Contrast ratio: 1600:1
• Remote: waterproof
• Weatherproof:
- rain/snow shielded

• Super bright panel; can be used anywhere inside or outside the home, designed specifically for viewing outside during the middle of the day
• Ultra -Wide 85/85 Degree (H/V) viewing angle; the picture will look clear and bright even at extremely wide viewing angles
• MSRP:
- PAN420 (42 -inch): $4,450
- PAN320 (32 -inch): $3,950

Pantel has designed and tested its line of outdoor TVs in both extremes…the searing heat of Arizona desert summers, and the bitter cold of Minnesota winters. Pantel's proprietary dual flow ventilation system keeps Pantel TVs cool when it's hot and it's state -of -the -art heating system creates heat to keep Pantel TVs working in colder climates. Pantel also has an Anti -Reflective glass screen that projects the sun's glare out of the viewing angle so you can enjoy watching a Pantel TV in any weather setting.

"Imagine relaxing outside, getting some much needed sun, while watching your favorite movie or television show in High Definition," added Pantel. "Football will never be the same again. Instead of missing plays while you are on the patio barbecuing for your guests, now you can watch the game outside with them. Pantel's Outdoor Weatherproof TVs are great for both residential and commercial use. The Pantel Weatherproof HD LCD TV combined with the Pantel waterproof remote gives you the freedom to open the doors and go outside, no matter what the weather or time of year."

Pantel also offers customizable packages, such as mounting solutions, outdoor wireless speakers, and dust covers for its line of outdoor LCD HDTVs.
