Runco Adds a Pair of Climate Portfolio Outdoor TVs

Posted Mon Jun 7, 2010 at 09:00 AM PDT by Dick Ward

They've got optional custom finishes, a completely weatherproof case, and a hefty price tag.

Remember sitting in front of the TV in the summer and being prompted by your parents to go outside and enjoy the weather? Well Runco's got a solution that works as a nice compromise – outdoor televisions.

The CP-42HD and CP-52HD, 42 and 52 inch sets respectively, are 1080p sets sporting "reflection-rejection" glass that allows you to mount them outdoors without having to worry about that whole sunlight thing.

They've got a pair of HDMI inputs, and a few other video inputs too, in case you want to hook up a game system or PC. They've also got an internal thermostat that activates a cooling system when the case gets too hot.

But they're not anywhere close to cheap. The CP-42HD runs $6,495, while the CP-52HD runs $13,995.
