32:9 Philips S-Line digital signage debuted by PPDS


PPDS has unveiled the Philips S-Line series of stretched digital signage displays for space-limited environments, including in entertainment venues, stadia and other public venues.

PPDS is the exclusive global provider of Philips professional displays and solutions.

Available now for order globally, the new 37in Philips S-Line series (37BDL3050S) adds a new dimension to PPDS’ digital signage and dvLED portfolio, offering an ultra-wide 32:9 aspect ratio (928.5 x 282.3 x 48.7mm). The Philips S-Line is built for 24/7 operation, reliability and 700cd/m² high-brightness (1920×540).

Complimenting PPDS’ existing digital signage range, the S-Line has a stretched design and narrow bezel frame (12.4mm T/B, 10.5mm R/L), enabling users to deliver content in spaces where traditional digital signage may not be suitable due to size constraints or where an alternative form factor is desired.

Portrait or landscape mountable, the Philips S-Line is designed to transform almost any surface – including over shelving, above busy order points, in transport hubs and in other narrow spaces. It can be used for general communications that include branding, marketing, area/exhibition information, to wayfinding, menu boards and more. At 7.76kg, the displays can also be mounted in a broad range of spaces, including on temporary walls, such as those used on kiosks, exhibitions, merchandise stalls and other pop-ups.

Philips S-Line displays 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, users can connect two or more displays using a single external player. The Philips S-Line comes with an extensive range of out-of-the-box solutions designed for seamless integration and almost instant setup.

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. Featuring an integrated media player, content can be created and scheduled via a USB and internal memory, helping to ensure displays remain active at all times, even in the event of a network outage. Philips S-Line displays wake from standby to play the content desired, and then return to standby once playback is done.

Philips S-Line will also soon be compatible with PPDS’ cloud platform PPDS Wave, adding even more advanced remote management capabilities, whether the displays are in single or multiple locations across the world.

“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 global business development and marketing at PPDS. “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.”
