PPDS has announced the latest evolution of its ‘total solutions’ strategy, partnering with Logitech to create one of the “most complete and inclusive collaborative meeting and learning experiences” for the corporate and education markets on Philips-branded professional displays.
Adding even more choice to PPDS’ ever-growing global base of partners and customers, the strategic collaboration has been formed to address the current and future needs for video conferencing and audio for business and education customers – whether on site or remotely – for more inclusive outcomes.
Pre-pandemic, the video conferencing market was already thriving, valued at more than €4.8 billion, with forecast growth topping €9.2 billion by 2027. According to PPDS, with the current global conditions, the role and need for reliable, high quality, professional video conferencing solutions has never been greater, nor more important.
Working together, PPDS and Logitech will bring plug-and-play connectivity and validated compatibility and seamless integration between a range of collaboration-inspired Philips professional displays for both corporate and education settings and a range of Logitech products. Each is designed to meet specific needs and requirements based on the environments in which they will be used, whether at the desktop or a small office at home, a huddle space, vast boardroom, a classroom or lecture theatre.
For corporate environments, these include the Crestron Connected certified, Windows or Android powered, UHD Philips C-Line interactive range, and the Crestron Connected, Extron and Neets compatible, Chromecast built-in Philips B-Line range for smaller meeting rooms and huddle spaces.
For education, a range of Logitech solutions can now connect seamlessly with PPDS’ multi-touch, 4K Philips T-Line range for smarter, more engaging in-class and hybrid or blended learning experiences.
“We are thrilled to have partnered with Logitech, adding even more incredible quality to our range of dedicated Philips professional displays for the corporate and education markets,” said Tim de Ruiter, international business manager at PPDS.
“Combining Logitech’s advanced technologies for unrivalled, world class video conferencing quality with our own market-leading range – designed and inspired by market feedback to meet every business need – we’re confident that there is no stronger or more complete all-in-one solution. With Logitech and PPDS, customers never have to settle for second best.”
Angie Mayo, global alliance & go-to-market manager at Logitech, added: “With video becoming a must-have collaboration tool in any workspace, our customers are looking for high quality, flexible solutions that are easy to deploy at scale. We are very excited to partner with PPDS to combine Logitech’s family of products with the wide range of Philips professional displays to easily video-enable every meeting space of any size.”
