Philips aids fast install with new LED range

Philips Professional Display Solutions’ LED range now available across EMEA, promising fast delivery, easy installation and simple operation

Philips Professional Display Solutions has announced the immediate availability of its new range of rapid-install LED displays to customers across EMEA.

Philips Professional Display Solutions’ Direct View L-Line Series was previewed at ISE 2019 and combines image quality, uniformity and innovative design features that aid easy installation.

“Feedback since ISE and at InfoComm in June has been incredible,” commented general manager, Chris Colpaert. “We’ve listened to the market to understand their historical pains, addressing those within our product designs to provide the complete end-to-end LED solution our customers crave. This extends from the moment an order is first placed, through the installation and across the lifetime management of the product.”

Shipments of LED displays are forecast to increase by 36.7% in 2019 compared to 2018, with revenues rising to $5.1 billion. Nearly 50% of all LED video displays shipped in 2019 will be installed in indoor applications, with the 2-to-4.99mm pixel-pitch category dominating the market, while share of 1.99mm and below will account for 13%, according to IHS Markit.

The L-Line Series includes the 27in BDL91XXL and the 44in (16×9) BDL81XXL, with both models featuring a range of pixel pitch sizes, from 1.2mm to 4.8mm. Customers can simply connect multiple LED display cabinets to create the resolution they want, whether it’s 4K, 8K or even higher, creating a seamless display, with no bezels.

Housed in lightweight, aluminium casing, the Philips PDS L-Line Series consists of six indoor modular tiles across two size variants to meet the wide range of customer needs.

Surpassing the EMC Class A EU requirement, the 27in BDL91xxL is designed to reduce electromagnetic radiation, making it ideal for use in airports, control rooms and hospitals where radiation may otherwise interfere with critical equipment and devices. This, together with the fact that there are no high frequency wires in the display or cabinets has positioned the Philips 27in LED with the superior EMC Class B certification, while the 44in BDL81xxL has EMC Class A certification.

Martijn van der Woude, director of business management, said: “We use connectors to link the hub board with the power supply and the LED modules instead of cables. This comes with added benefits, allowing for fast and easy installation and maintenance.”

When displays become larger, they become more difficult to handle. The new, modular L-Line system is a better and more practical solution – one that also inspires additional creativity with the modular cabinets allowing installers to design displays with varying shapes.

All displays are front serviceable, allowing LED modules, cables and power supplies to be changed or altered without having to remove the display from the wall.

As well as standard, single cabinets, the Philips L-Line range can be ordered as a ‘solution-in-a-kit’, allowing installers to more easily select the product they need to create LED walls sized from 110in up to 330in.

“The market is in favour of standardised products and, ideally, prefers standard solutions”, said Martijn van der Woude. “Our new range means our customers can order all the components needed for their installation – including cables, cabinets and decoders – with just one product code. This is a big tick achieved on our partners’ wish lists.”
