Philips Signage Solutions to display new technology, innovations at ISE 2014

Amsterdam, 4 February 2014 – MMD, the leading technology company and brand license partner for Philips Signage Solutions, announces new and updated products that will be displayed at this year”s ISE. Utilizing Smart Technology and innovation, Philips Signage Solutions has developed and improved products in the many applications where clear imaging and signage are crucial.
The SmartCollection, comprising smart innovations to deploy and manage any signage application, places a major focus on its environment to impress targeted audiences with pioneering features. These include crystal-clear displays, cloud-based platforms, user control, and content management, with many of these improvements not requiring any additional hardware or expensive installations. The SmartCollection bundles many smart features to help build the perfect eco-system for any signage application. The SmartCollection brings amazingly clear and detailed images to the X-Line Video Wall Series. With the addition of the Color Calibration Kit, all Video Wall monitors are guaranteed to impress with their beautifully consistent continuous color.

The Q-Line Series represents the entry-level and most cost-efficient signage solution for small retail businesses. It is easy to install, and, with Smart Technology, allows small business owners to manage information easily, giving their business an edge to stand out from the rest.

The E-Line Series is the professional signage solution. Developed for 24/7 operation this series provides information to visitors, guests, and travelers in healthcare, hospitality, and transportation industries. With OPS (Open Pluggable Standard), an Intel-based platform, users experience minimal downtime, if any at all, when having to swap out one for another.

The V-Line Series offers high-end signage solutions, much like the E-Line Series, but with sharper brightness and imaging with IPS (In-plane Switching) technology. High contrast ratios return a level of brightness that is ideal no matter the ambient lighting conditions with improved viewing angles for optimal readability in public areas.

The Multi Touch signage solutions can be deployed for many applications: from the classroom where they can be used as interactive whiteboards and other valuable teaching tools, to shopping malls for use as interactive maps to guide shoppers to specific stores.

The UHD Series displays bring the ultimate in performance and clarity. The 65 and 84-inch models will be on display at ISE 2014, where visitors will have the opportunity to see for themselves that size doesn”t diminish the consistently brilliant contrast ratios to provide sharp images across a large screen.

A leader in revolutionary lenticular technology, Philips Signage Solutions has developed a method to perceive a 3D effect with excellent clarity and depth – yet without the need for glasses. It is a new experience for viewers offering unprecedented levels of realism in surroundings such as museums, flag-ship stores, and point-of-sale advertising.

In corporate, education, healthcare, hospitality, retail, and transportation environments, Philips Signage Solutions continues their innovative approach to technology to make life more enriching, enjoyable, and enlightening.
