Peerless-AV has announced the launch of the new generation 55in Xtreme High Bright Outdoor Display for all-weather, extreme temperature applications. The new XHB553-EUK retains an unmatched ingress protection (IP) rating and award-winning feature set but is now lighter in weight with significant mechanical and operating system enhancements that include thermal load diffusion, customised brightness scheduling, auto-source switching, power-saving and pixel shifting, to name a few.
To address performance requirements in hotter ‘desert’ or sunnier climates, the new XHB553-EUK outdoor display is fan cooled to reduce heat build-up caused by thermal load from extended exposure to direct sunlight. The display’s operating temperature remains the widest in the industry, ranging from -35°C to 60°C (-31°F to 140°F) and the patented thermal exhaust system keeps internal components cooled in extreme heat. It also offers 2500nits of light output and an ambient light sensor that automatically adjusts brightness to match time of day conditions, thus reducing light pollution in evening hours and optimising power consumption.
The XHB553-EUK is now 25% lighter than the previous generation 55in and includes a gyroscopic sensor that detects any movement of the display. The XHB553’s IP66 rated design protects against the ingress of water, dust, dirt, moisture and insects, and an IK10 tempered cover glass offers protection against vandalism and debris.
Additional new features include upgrades to the display’s network access and control functionality, as well as key operating system extras:
“As a market leader in professional outdoor displays, it is fundamental that we continue to enhance our technology to meet evolving industry requirements,” said Keith Dutch, Managing Director – EMEA, Peerless-AV. “We are seeing increased demand for our displays in extreme weather environments dictated by high levels of sun exposure, heat and direct sunlight. This is where the new XHB553 is designed to excel. It can perform to the highest of standards in all weather conditions, from the desert to a polar vortex, and the new network control, monitoring and scheduling improvements make this an even more reliable, quality product for any outdoor application.”
The Xtreme High Bright Outdoor Display can be much more than a standalone unit. Peerless-AV also designs and manufactures stylish, fully integrated kiosk solutions, including Outdoor Smart City Kiosks (KOP2555-XHB-EUK) and Outdoor Digital Menu Boards (KOF555-1/2/3-EUK).
