Interview - Wireless Outdoor TV
Joe Pantel of Surfside Concepts and Pantel Corp.

Currently, Pantel TVs operate wirelessly over an 802.11a WIFI signal that is able to transmit both audio and video data up to 200-ft away. This technology eliminates the problems that would be incurred if it were necessary to have a hardwire connection between the cable boxes/DVD players and the television. That would simply defeat the purpose of having an outdoor TV because cable boxes and DVD players are not made to withstand the elements of the outdoors.



The Pantel Outdoor Weatherproof TVs are made with powder-coated aluminum, which allows them to easily ventilate so that they don’t overheat and it prevents them from rusting as a result of bombardment by rain or any other moisture. The bottom line is that the elements that exist in an outdoor setting will cause our TVs no harm. The internal electronic components of our TVs are completely sealed off so that they are not brought into contact with the elements that could so easily damage an indoor television.

802.11a? Seriously wireless A? Why not wireless N?

Does it come with some way to secure it to my deck so someone doesn't walk off with it?

Yes, each unit comes standard with a gun toting guard, typically a parolee, who you are responsible to provide room and board for......

My "wireless outdoor tv" is a Durabrand 13 inch tube set with a built in digital tuner. It even has a hole to mount rabbit ears on it. I carry it inside when not in use. Sometimes I don't use it wirelessly. I have a cable connection on the side of my house that normally runs to a trailer. I sometimes use that to connect cable to the Durabrand set.

How can we say "the digital transition is complete" when thousands of low power stations are still broadcasting in analog?

I have a schnauzer that will eat anybody who tries to rob me! He loves to go outside with me for several hours at a time. I sit in front of the tv while he runs and plays. Every once in awhile he will bring one of his toys for me to throw it for him. I have watched a lot of tv outdoors since I was a kid (a black and white tv back then, yes, back in the 1970s we had a tv to take outdoors and I even had a color tv in my room and was one of only a few kids in my school that did).

How can we say "the digital transition is complete" when thousands of low power stations are still broadcasting in analog?

Oh goody. Now I can watch TV while I'm cutting my grass.

Now if I can figure out a way to hook my Xbox 360 up to it.
