Pantel Launches Weatherproof Digital Signage-Specific LCD Monitors

February 6, 2009

GARDEN GROVE, Calif., Jan. 27, 2009 — Pantel (, the worldwide leader in outdoor weatherproof TV and monitor solutions, is proud to announce that it will launch multiple new weatherproof digital signage-specific LCD monitors at the 2009 Digital Signage Expo (DSE), held in Las Vegas, Nev. from Feb. 24-26 at the Las Vegas Convention Center, booth #1853.

The new 42- and 52-inch models have been designed specifically for use in commercial applications, whether indoors or outdoors in the elements. They are available with an optional internal computer package and also in either vertical or horizontal configurations. The new 42- and 52-inch models have a price range of $5,999.99 to $12,999.99 apiece, respectively, with additional computer and heating options also available. All models are scheduled for availability in Q1 2009.

“The desire for outdoor signage is booming, yet integrators and commercial customers up until now had very limited options when selecting a flat panel that meets their very specific needs,” explained Joe Pantel, Chief Executive Officer of Pantel Corp. “Pantel now has the answer. Our new digital signage-specific weatherproof LCD monitors are perfect for commercial applications such as movie theaters, amusement parks, concert venues, race tracks, sports arenas/stadiums, outdoor exhibitions, restaurants, bars, hotels, and more. They come available in both horizontal and vertical configurations with optional integrated CPUs to help run business-specific audio and video messaging, as well as available heating options for those applications where the climate necessitates it.”

Outdoor commercial advertising used to be a very concerning and expensive project due to the threat of unpredictable weather. “Up until recently, high definition televisions and monitors 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 added. “Our new digital signage monitors now allow businesses to break free from the hassle, excessive expense, and these constant concerns thrown at them by Mother Nature. We have designed and tested our products extensively to ensure they perform in both cold and heat extremes, as well as being protected from rain, snow, dirt, insects and other natural elements.”

Beyond being weatherproof, because many commercial outlets utilize video advertisements in an ongoing loop specific to their business (such as a movie theater promoting its current lineup or a restaurant promoting its menu), Pantel offers with its digital signage monitors an optional internal CPU package to run such audio and video advertisements.

With the weather being a threat to what businesses can do outside to advertise, Pantel now makes it easy without w
