Sanyo has introduced an LCD Waterproof Monitor, the CE52SR1. The 52-inch LCD is lightweight, runs cooler, and uses less electric power than similarly sized plasma monitors. The CE52SR1 has a full HD resolution (1920 by 1080 pixels) and a 1500:1 contrast ratio. Combined with a sun-readable feature, it is also ideal for viewing under sunlight with 1500 cd/m2 on-screen brightness.
It is also resistant to typical weather conditions, even withstanding low-pressure jets of water sprayed directly on the front glass. The monitor's frame and cabinet are constructed from a marine grade anodized aluminum and were designed with a "no holes" ventilation system such that the LCD monitor stays cool while being protected from dust and various weather conditions. Additionally, the CE52SR1 is outfitted with a tamper-resistant anti-reflection cover glass, which makes it suitable for use in well-trafficked public areas.
It will be available in October 2008 and have an MSRP of $13,995.
