The Toys of Summer: A Pan for All Seasons

The pennant race is still too close to call, and your team is playing on TV. But the weather is warm and sunny, and you do not want to spend the afternoon inside. What is a sports fan to do? Pantel’s solution is a line of weatherproof LCD monitors, which includes the new Pantel Pan-650, a 65-inch model—one of the largest outdoor TVs on the market—priced at $26,000. The Pan-650 can remain outside year-round, thanks to its ability to withstand rain, snow, and temperatures as low as minus 32 degrees and as high as 145 degrees. The screen has an antireflective surface, so even the brightest sunshine will not compromise the display’s full high-definition picture—nor will the sun spoil plans for watching an important game.
