Toshinaer Launches Weatherproof TV Line; Toshinaer.com Now Live

Currently Available in 42- and 52-Inch LCD and 60-Inch LED Screen Sizes, Toshinaer’s HDTVs Resist the Elements, Allowing Residential and Commercial Customers the Ultimate Outdoor Viewing Option

HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif., April 11, 2012 — Torn between staying inside to watch the game or going outside to swim in the pool or host a bar-b-que with friends and family? Always wanted the perfect movable or permanent outdoor digital signage option that’s been designed to meet the demands of any weather conditions? Toshinaer now has the answer. Now live, www.toshinaer.com guides the customer through a number of high-definition and high-grade outdoor weatherproof HD television solutions via a select, yet growing, dealer base.

“Outdoor audio and video have grown the past few years, even in a hurting economy, as more and more businesses see the benefit of entertaining their guests outside, or utilizing weatherproof screens as digital signage throughout their property,” explained Ryan Moodley, Toshinaer president. “As the economy strengthens, and in particular this time of year, the residential side of the business is growing once again as the weather warms up and families want to spend more time outdoors.”

Besides residential use, such as on patios and in the back yard, Toshinaer outdoor weatherproof LCD HDTVs are perfect for commercial applications such as amusement parks, concert venues, race tracks, sports arenas/stadiums, outdoor exhibitions, restaurants, bars, hotels, and more.

Taking the party, or your business message, outside has never been easier. Currently available in 42- and 52-inch LCD screens and a 60-inch LED screen, Toshinaer uses high quality panels made by name brand manufacturers. There is a photo cell in each unit so that when the sun hits our units, it brightens up the LCD. And when it is dark, it automatically dims down the LCD so that you have the proper amount of light coming from the flat panel.

Additional specifications include:
• Powder coated aluminum endures the elements (including rain, snow, humidity, dry heat, and freezing temperatures)
• Full 1080p high definition resolution
• Marine-grade speakers
• Thermostat-controlled internal cooling system
• Specially coated internal components protect from moisture
• IR discrete, IR repeater, S-232 controllable

According to Moodley, the market is in need for not only an outdoor unit that is both reliable and affordable, but can be used for both residential and commercial purposes and be purchased through reliable channels.

“That’s why we have chosen to begin distributing our line through a secure network of online authorized dealers,” explained Moodley. “With our dealer network in place, Toshinaer.com will steer the customer in the right direction once they choose the model that best fits their needs.”

Toshinaer also offers accessories, such as dust covers and mounting solutions.

For more information, including finding a dealer near you, please visit www.toshinaer.com or call 71-702-5966.

About Toshinaer
Toshinaer, based in Huntington Beach,, Calif., strives to be the leader in rugged yet affordable outdoor AV technology. Outdoor residential and commercial entertainment used to be a very concerning and expensive project due to the threat of unpredictable weather. High definition TVs used outdoors had to be utilized under canopies or other types of overhangs, but that still did not always protect them from cold, heat, wind, and dust. Toshinaer TVs now allow homeowners and businesses to break free from the hassle, excessive expense, and these constant concerns thrown at them by Mother Nature.
