When weather conditions change, what happens to outdoor digital signage?

Christie will debut its WeatherAll Series of LCD outdoor flat panels at ISE 2013 to conquer these elements.

The 55-inch Christie FHD551-W, the first of the WeatherAll Series, is a professional grade full HD (1920 x 1080 resolution) solution. It is designed to perform in a wide range of applications, including outdoor sporting venues, outdoor live events, architectural applications, entertainment parks, public displays, the hospitality and resort industry, transportation services, and other outdoor environments not typically applicable with standard LCD panels. 

“The Christie FHD551-W can easily manage temperatures ranging from a scorching 45 degrees Celsius (114 degrees Fahrenheit) all the way down to a bone chilling minus 20 degrees Celsius (minus 4 degrees Fahrenheit), as well as rain, snow, dust and high humidity, without those factors affecting performance,” says Frank Anzures, Christie senior product manager. “This new outdoor flat panel also boasts integrated weatherproof speakers to provide a full solution for outdoor use.”

The FHD551-W features a weather rating of IP56/NEMA4, offering protection against solid foreign objects such as dirt, windblown dust, rain, snow, ice, and more. The DACS cooling and filtration system provides a thermostatically-controlled active system that protects sensitive electronics from temperature extremes, moisture and dust, while the advanced easy-clean solution eliminates the need for core filter replacement.

Features of the Christie FHD551-W with Optical Bonding include: improves sunlight readability up to 400 percent; increases impact and scratch resistance up to 300 percent; eliminates parallax; prevents condensation on LCD Panel; and improves contrast and color saturation readability.
