AV and CI companies are increasingly being asked to install high technology in every room inside and outside the home. Aquavision has responded by introducing five waterproof HD Ready LCD ‘in-wall’ televisions. The Series4 high-performance range consists of 17 (4:3), 19, 26, 32 and 40in widescreen sizes.
The most exciting new feature, which no other waterproof television has, is the RS232 control port, enabling the television to be controlled from a compatible touch panel anywhere in the home. The RS232 control port is fully compatible with most home automation control systems including Crestron.
All the new models feature integrated Freeview digital and analogue tuners, a component video, S-Video and analogue PC input, twin HDMI inputs on the AVF-32-4C and AVF-40-C, single HDMI on the 17, 19, and 26 the twin HDMI inputs on the two larger screens, full scart connection and built in games. Image quality is far more superior than any other waterproof TV available offering a contrast ratio of 1600:1 on the AVF-32-4C for outstanding reproduction of detail and depth of images and 1,366 x 768 pixel resolution on most of the new models. The new screens accept both industry standard ‘High Definition’ video formats (1080i and 720p) perfect for watching the latest HDTV and high definition movies.
