The development of C SEED lasted four years and was done by R&D engineers at C SEED Entertainment Systems in Austria and by the engineering team of Porsche Design Studio in Germany. C SEED has been on the market since 2011 and won the Red Dot [1] design award "Best of the Best 2012".

C SEED Entertainment Systems is a registered company in Vienna and part of the Global Bright Group, founded in 2004 by Alexander Swatek and Edouardo Saint Julien-Wallsee.

TV Features[edit]


The C SEED TV consist of a 4,6 m (15 ft.) high column, which is stored underneath the surface in a shaft, when not in use. With a built-in lift system the TV-system is brought up to its full height within 15 seconds. Through the kinematic system, the screen, 11 m2, unfolds into seven LED panels within the next 25 seconds. The panels interlock and form a seamless surface on which high-luminosity images can be viewed also at sunlight.


The sound system comprises 6 broadband speakers for the left and right audio channels, and 3 subwoofers for low frequencies. The speakers deliver distortion-free sound under all weather conditions.

Multi-source media server

At the core of the TV-system there is a multi-source media server that transfers HD video and audio data to the screen using Windows 7-based software.

Environmental sensor

The system is equipped with wind, temperature and laser sensors in order to prevent getting damaged through adverse outdoor conditions.
