PPDS, professional displays and solutions provider, is debuting its Philips S-Line – a series of stretched digital signage displays, for installations in space-limited environments, including public venues, stadia and entertainment venues.
The Philips S-Line series (37BDL3050S) features an ultra-wide 32:9 aspect ratio (928.5 x 282.3 x 48.7 mm). It is built for 24/7 operation, and comes equipped with a 700cd/m² high-brightness (1920×540). The stretched design and narrow bezel frame (12.4mm T/B, 10.5mm R/L) will primarily be utilised in spaces where traditional digital signage may not be suitable due to size constraints.
Portrait or landscape mountable, Philips S-Line weighs 7.76 kg, and the displays can also be mounted in a broader range of spaces, including on temporary walls, such as those used on kiosks, exhibitions, merchandise stalls and other pop ups. It can be installed as a standalone solution or daisy chained using PPDS’ HMDI linking technology, as part of a multi-display setup. For tiled setups, two or more displays can be connected using an external player.
Running on Android 8, Philips S-Line is optimised for native Android apps, with users able to install their desired apps directly to the display. Content can be created and scheduled via a USB and internal memory via an integrated media player.
It is not yet compatible with PPDS’ e-cloud platform PPDS Wave, though PPDS said this capability will be available shortly.
“We are delighted to introduce our brand-new Philips S-line series, adding new opportunities for our partners and their customers to bring their digital content and creative ambitions to life,” said Martijn van der Woude, head of marketing at PPDS, adding “ With a unique and unmissable 32:9 aspect ratio design, a high brightness screen for the clearest and most vibrant content, coupled with effortless control and management capabilities, Philips S-Line, literally stretches out the opportunities to deliver innovative ways of communicating with their customers and standing out in the crowd.”
