PPDS has unveiled the new 32:9 Philips S-Line digital signage ‘stretch’ series for high-impact performances in transportation environments.

The brand new 37” Philips S-Line series features a unique ultra-wide 32:9 aspect ratio (928.5 x 282.3 x 48.7 mm). 

Built for 24/7 operation and equipped with a powerful 700cd/m² high-brightness (1920x540), Philips S-Line is, according to PPDS, an ideal solution for transportation environments where communication is critical.   

The S-Line’s stretched design and narrow bezel frame (12.4mm T/B, 10.5mm R/L) enable customers to deliver crystal clear, high-impact content in spaces where traditional digital signage may not be suitable, perhaps due to size constraints. 

Portrait or landscape mountable, Philips S-Line displays weigh just 7.76kg, meaning they can be mounted even on temporary walls. The displays can be installed as a standalone solution or daisy chained using PPDS’ HMDI linking technology, as part of a multi-display set-up for more creative yet compact designs. For tiled set-ups, two or more displays can be connected using a single external player. 

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. An integrated media player means content can be created and easily scheduled via a USB and internal memory, helping ensure displays remain active at all times, even in the event of a network outage. Displays wake from standby to play the content required, before returning to standby once playback is complete.  

Philips S-Line will also soon be compatible with PPDS’ cloud platform PPDS Wave.
