Philips Professional Display Solutions (Philips PDS) has announced its complete range of new, Google-certified, Android-powered MediaSuite Pro TVs are now available to all customers across EMEA.
Unveiled during ISE 2019, the new PDS MediaSuite range has been designed to help revolutionise the way businesses and end-users can access and broadcast digital content, debuting several new features.
Following a soft launch earlier this year, the MediaSuite range consists of seven variants in two series and is a ideal for a wide range of verticals, including hospitality, education, corporate, retail, food and beverage and healthcare.
The HFL6014U UHD series is available as 43in 50in, 55in and 65in models with slimline, silver bezels and a swivel stand. The HFL5014 FHD series is available in black in 32in, 43in and 50in. Both series feature direct LED back lights and high-quality panels to offer superior contrast, black level, brightness and colour saturation to ensure an outstanding picture performance.
Most notably, the HFL6014U UHD and HFL5014 FHD series are said to be the first ever dedicated Pro TVs to offer Chromecast built-in. With no login required, users can simply cast their own content – be it photos, movies, music or even presentations – instantly in up to 4K from their compatible laptop or mobile device (IOS, Android or Windows) with just the touch of a button.
MediaSuite TVs also provide access to thousands of apps through the Google Play Store, including major services such as YouTube, Deezer and Spotify, plus local news, weather and traffic information.
“The way we all consume content at home and at work has changed significantly in recent years and it’s important for that experience to remain consistent,” commented Anthony Tizzard, Pro TV business manager EMEA, Professional TV. “Whether you’re in a hotel room, a patient in hospital, or presenting during an important meeting, you want to have that control. The technology is only a success if it’s accessible to all and meets or surpasses expectations. Anything less is a disappointment and therefore a failure. At Philips Professional Display Solutions we directly respond to our customers’ needs and with MediaSuite, we’re bringing the seamless experience to our customers and removing the pains and restrictions they’ve previously encountered.”
With Google certification, all MediaSuite Pro TVs come with the Philips PDS Extended Lifetime promise, which will see all TVs receive regular software updates. Unlike with other TVs, new features and functionality will regularly be added, extending the lifetime and performance of the display, whilst providing a greater return on investment.
All MediaSuite TVs can be managed and updated entirely remotely, either individually or collectively, with vast levels of customisation, be it imagery, colouring or even personalised messaging.
In addition, MediaSuite also offers new opportunities for greater interaction with end users, such as hotel guests, using an on-screen customer satisfaction survey, which can offer instant feedback on a customer’s current service perceptions. Such feedback will help companies to resolve any issues in person, while the customer is still on site, rather than after potentially negative online comment.
What’s more, providing invaluable management information, each MediaSuite can provide a statistics report to show which are the most popular Apps and services, how many times they are used and how long they are used for.
“The new features of MediaSuite allow our clients to continuously monitor and perfect their offering,” Tizzard added: “With built-in Chromecast technology, an upgradable platform and big data analytics, MediaSuite ensures that our clients can offer an exceptional experience, while guaranteeing that their Pro TVs stay up-to-date. A true win-win, whatever industry you’re operating in.”
