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.

"Beyond residential uses, 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," added Pantel. "Our larger screen sizes 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."

Pantel has designed and tested its line of outdoor TVs in both extremesthe 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 its state -of -the -art design helps 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.
