December 5, 2008 For those who think that relaxing in the tub with a nice novel is a bit outdated, Aquavision will be launching the first full HD waterproof TV at ISE in Amsterdam in 2009. The new S4 HD 40-inch wall/waterproof television incorporates a true, full High Definition (1920 x 1080) LCD panel, integrated Freeview digital tuner, a component video, S-Video and analogue PC input, twin HDMI inputs, full scart connection and built-in games. The unit is also available in the Mirrorvision finish, so that when the television is off, the glass takes the form of a mirror that is perfect for shaving or putting on make-up.

A RS232 control port provides compatibility with the likes of Crestron, AMX, iLight and Systemline, enabling it to be controlled from a compatible touch panel any where in the home while two remote controls (one master and one waterproof) are provided with the TV and a hard wired control panel is available to fix on the wall. Seeking to cement their position as the market leader in waterproof in-wall televisions, Aquavision will also be announcing a new kitchen television and a vanity mirror television at the show. Even installed in steamy rooms such as bathrooms, showers and saunas, the TV will not mist up thanks to their heated screens.
