PPDS, the exclusive global provider of Philips professional displays and solutions, is excited to announce the debut of Philips S-Line – a series of stretched digital signage displays, bringing new creative possibilities for high-impact installations in food and beverage environments, including hotel cafes, bars, restaurants and busy fast food locations.

Available now for order globally, the brand new 37” Philips S-Line series (37BDL3050S)adds a new dimension to PPDS’ ever-evolving and expanding digital signage and dvLED portfolio, with this latest evolution featuring a highly unique and eye-catching, ultra-wide 32:9 aspect ratio (928.5 x 282.3 x 48.7 mm).

Built for 24/7 operation, offering uncompromising reliability, and equipped with a powerful 700cd/m² high-brightness (1920x540), Philips S-Line is the ideal solution for a variety of uses.

Show more in less space

Complimenting PPDS’ existing digital signage range, the S-Line’s stretched design and narrow bezel frame (12.4mm T/B, 10.5mm R/L) opens a multitude of opportunities for hoteliers, with food and beverage environments able to be deliver crystal clear, high-impact content in spaces where traditional digital signage may not be suitable due to size constraints.

Portrait or landscape mountable, Philips S-Line can transform almost any surface – including over shelving, above busy order points and in other narrow spaces – into a hive of digital activity that demands to be seen. From general communications that include hotel branding, marketing, to wayfinding, menu boards and many more, Philips S-Line is guaranteed to make a wide impression. At just 7.76 kg, the displays can also be mounted in a broader range of spaces, including on temporary walls.

Built with flexibility in mind, and to remove current marketplace limitations, Philips S-Line displays can be installed as a standalone solution or seamlessly daisy chained using PPDS’ versatile HMDI linking technology, as part of a multi-display setup for more creative yet compact designs. For tiled setups, simply connect two or more displays using a single external player.

Effortless control and monitoring

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. And featuring an integrated media player, content can be created and easily 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 you want, and then return to standby once playback is done.

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

Martijn van der Woude, Head of Global Business Development and Marketing at PPDS, commented: “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.
