Sanyo CE52SR1 LCD Waterproof Monitor Announced

SANYO Introduces New 52″ LCD High-Definition Monitor That Is Waterproof and Weather Resistant

  • The CE52SR1 is SANYO’s first 52″ outdoor High Definition LCD Waterproof Monitor
  • CE52SR1 can be used in outdoor applications for advertising and display with its anti-reflective and tamper-proof glass
  • Frame and cabinet are constructed from marine grade anodized aluminum for long lasting performance under adverse conditions

SANYO, one of the world’s largest manufacturers of LCD and DLP projectors introduces their second-generation LCD Waterproof Monitor, the CE52SR1. Integrating SANYO’s revolutionary sun-readable LCD panel and marine grade construction, the CE52SR1 is designed for virtually any outdoor installation.

This unique LCD monitor is lightweight, runs cooler and uses less electrical power than similarly sized plasma monitors. The CE52SR1 surprisingly makes no compromises on image quality with Full HD resolution (1920 by 1080 pixels) and a stunning 1500:1 contrast ratio. Combined with the CE52SR1’s sun-readable feature, it is also ideal for viewing under sunlight with 1500 cd/m2 on-screen brightness.

Systems integrators will find the CE52SR1 is adaptable for most outdoor applications in venues such as public place like theme parks, sporting events, bus stops, and railway stations, even highway tollbooths. It can be used in shop windows with sunlight streaming in, restaurant entrances and brightly lit shopping malls. Designers and decorators can use the CE52SR1 onboard a yacht or in a crowded public garden where weather and light are most commonly problematic.

“The CE52SR1 expands SANYO’s lineup of industry leading specialty LCD displays. Our customers have asked for larger and brighter waterproof displays and the CE52S1 delivers on both counts,” says Mark Holt, the Vice President and General Manager for SANYO’s Presentation Technologies Division.

The CE52SR1 is highly resistant to typical weather conditions, due to its impressive IP-66 rating. The Ingress Protection, or IP, rating was established by the European Committee for Electro Technical Standardization (CENELEC, described IEC/EN 60529) and specifies the environmental protection an enclosure provides. The first number indicates the level of protection against dust, while the second number specifies the protection against liquids. This new IP rating is slightly higher than the rating given to SANYO’s first waterproof LCD monitor, the CE42’s, which was rated at IP-56. The increased rating indicates the CE52SR1 is better protected against harmful particles that can form outside the monitor. The protection against water is so substantial the CE52SR1 can withstand low-pressure jets of water sprayed directly on the front glass.

The CE52SR1’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 tough, tamper-resistant anti-reflection cover glass, which makes the monitor highly suitable for use in well-trafficked public areas as well as in almost any kind of unprotected outdoor location.

The CE52SR1 also offers the ability to combine up to 25 units (maximum 5×5 configuration) from a single input signal, making it even more suitable for public displays. Having this type of flexibility offers more opportunities in a variety of settings.

The CE52SR1 comes equipped with a wide variety of input/output terminals (including DVI-D instead of HDMI) so that you can make full use of the LCD monitor’s colorful, blur-free, high-speed 6.5 ms response time while watching a wide range of real time video signals. In addition to all the above features, like other SANYO display products, the CE52SR1 can be fitted with their PJ-Net Organizer (POA-LN01) so that this large, outdoor monitor can be controlled via a web browser.
