11 Feb What’s the ultimate luxury amenity for your outdoor living space?
The World’s Largest TV
The C SEED 201 TV marks a world premiere in private entertainment by taking high-tech TV outdoors.
Spectacular picture quality is provided by a 201-inch (5.11m) 16:9 LED screen.
As host you direct the performance by radio remote control, pressing a button to adjust the screen to the desired height and rotate it to a maximum of 270 degree angle for optimal viewing comfort.
The C SEED 201 grew out of a passion for technical excellence and innovation. Such an ambitious project called for wide-ranging expertise and research capability.
Visionary R&D engineers from C SEED ENTERTAINMENT SYSTEMS were engaged to deliver the ultimate outdoor LED TV. Thanks to their pioneering solutions, outdoor viewing will never be the same.
Expanding the limits
The C SEED 201 column takes 15 seconds to achieve its full height of 4.65 m (15 ft.) with effortless ease. Seven massive LED panels unfold equally soundlessly within the next 25 seconds. A masterpiece of technological sculpture now dominates the scene as it prepares to reveal its brilliant potential to a discerning audience.
Safely out of the way
Instead of taking up space when not in use, the C SEED 201 folds up and retreats below ground, where it stays safe and dry in its water-resistant shaft.
The C SEED 201 packs its ultra powerful technology into a rigorously streamlined aesthetic designed by Porsche Design Studio, a leader in European industrial design. Simplicity of form, durable high-grade materials and impeccable workmanship are combined in an austerely imposing installation. When the C SEED 201 unfolds its monumental black panels, its environment is immediately transformed into a stunning sculpture garden.
The kinematics of the TV
Seven LED panels unfold in 25 seconds to create a seamless display.
Flexible viewing angles
The screen can rotate up to 135 degrees
to the left or right for optimum viewing comfort.
The screen can be raised or lowered
to the optimal height for any occasion.
Red Dot best of the best
“The international 30-member expert jury
at the prestigious red dot product design award,
chose C SEED 201 from over 5,500 entries
as their “Best of the Best 2012” winner!
The Porsche Design Studio combines a tradition of craftsmanship with innovative technology. Every product it designs has the potential to become a classic.
All bear an unmistakable signature: clarity and functionality of form, carefully selected materials, and high-quality workmanship.
“Our goal was to develop a design concept that turned the unfolding process into a special effect. We wanted to make sure that the C SEED 201 conveyed a sophisticated aesthetic in every phase of its movement. It starts as an obelisk rising from the ground, then opens up with a butterfly-like motion. The realization of this idea was a true challenge for the engineers.”
Roland Heiler, CEO Porsche Design Studio
A dazzling display
The panels interlock to form a seamless TV screen that bursts into action with revolutionary pixel power for ultra-high-resolution images in any daylight environment, including direct sunshine. Each of the over 725,000 LEDs processes image data up to 100,000 times per second, enabling the C SEED 201 to display 4.4 trillion radiant colors. No other technology generates such an extraordinary color spectrum with undreamt-of precision and reliability.
LED display with high-resolution microgrid
The outstanding picture quality of the C SEED 201 is a tribute to the innovative genius of Lighthouse Technologies, an established leader in the LED display industry. No other outdoor LED screen has a pixel pitch of only 6 mm. Along with the screen’s exceptional luminosity and high refresh rate, that low pixel pitch ensures crystal-clear, true-color images, even in bright daylight conditions.
