Peerless-AV won a CI BEST [Best Electronics Systems Technologies] Award at InfoComm 2017 for its Xtreme High-Bright line of outdoor TVs, thanks in no small part to the products’ brightness, effectiveness in all outdoor weather and durability
The good fortune continued at the end of 2018 for Peerless-AV when senior editor Robert Archer chose the Xtreme High-Bright line as one of his best AV products of the year.
“Xtreme outdoor line of displays eliminates the need for filters and exhaust fans to keep the products cool,” Archer wrote in his post that honored the Peerless-AV line.
“The displays incorporate the company’s Dynamic Thermal Transfer technology to keep internal components warm during extreme cold and cool in high temperature environments. The line of products produce up to 2,500 cd/m2 of brightness.”
Peerless-AV’s 2019 So Far
All that praise doesn’t mean Peerless-AV plans to rest on its laurels when it comes to the Xtreme High-Bright outdoor line in 2019.
The company showed off the capabilities of the line at ISE 2019 in Amsterdam last week by repeatedly submerging it in water from the bottom to the top and back again.
That test, says Peerless-AV director of emerging technologies Todd Mares, was designed to show what it truly means to have the Xtreme High-Bright outdoor line earn a coveted IP 68 rating.
“It can withstand any environmental issue, namely water,” Mares told CI web editor Adam Forziati during an ISE 2019 booth tour. “There are no fans or filters to replace. It’s completely maintenance-free.”
And, while Peerless-AV was certainly drawing plenty of attention to its booth with the TV dunk tank, that doesn’t necessarily mean you should try it at home—or at the office or at your local sports bar.
“I’m never going to tell anybody to install this under water, but this shows the robustness of the display,” says Mares.
And it’s not just about the Xtreme High-Bright outdoor line being able to withstand repeated trips underwater.
The display is also puts out 2500 nits of light output and has an IK-10 rating cover glass that’s optically bonded to screen to allow “perfect readability in any environment,” says Mares.
