Cree has unveiled the first commercially available water-resistant, surface-mount, high-brightness LEDs for outdoor video screens in the world. Boasting an IPx5 rating, the LEDs on this puppy are able to handle low-pressure jets of water from all directions. It comes with a black face that helps improve contrast in full-color video screens, decorative lighting and amusement applications. Another interesting aspect of this would be the special unique encapsulation resin with UV-inhibitors that help minimize the effects of long-term exposure to direct sunlight, in turn improving the stability of the light-output over the life of the LED. Available commercially at this moment, you can request for samples from a Cree representative.
