their range of weather resistant LCDs with a top end 46-inch model that brings the nature resistant features of it smaller siblings to a much larger screen area. The SunBrite 4600HD, which will debut at InfoComm in the second week of June, has a corrosion resistant enclosure that protects the internals from the elements. It has a built-in filtered fan system for particularly hot days, and a heater which allows it to work in temperatures of around -4 degrees C (24 degrees F), plus a watertight cable system for a range of sources including HDMI, component, VGA, S-video, composite, and RF. You won't want to stick a regular antenna into this TV though, as it comes with a respectable 1366 x 768 resolution at a 1600:1 contrast ratio. All this high end outdoor kit comes at a cost -- $4,995 to be precise, available from dealers this month -- but if you have a use for a HDTV in your garden, there's still the problem of figuring out how to weather-proof your HD sources. A perfect opportunity for the ever innovative console modders to get a tan, perhaps?
