PPDS announced the latest evolution of its market-leading hospitality TV range, launching an advanced series of premium 4K and Chromecast built-in Philips MediaSuite TVs. Unveiled for the first time in North America at HITEC Orlando, the latest additions to the growing Philips MediaSuite with Android TV™ OS family include the new Philips MediaSuite 6214U series and the MediaSuite 5214U family.
“Philips MediaSuite has redefined the role of the hotel TV, setting a new standard for control, personalization, and entertainment choice for the guest, while bringing once unimaginable back-end control and management options that allow hoteliers to truly take control of the experience they offer,” said Jeroen Verhaeghe, International Business Manager for Hospitality and the mastermind behind Philips MediaSuite.
The new Philips MediaSuite TVs combine the latest innovative and world-first features while continuing to include all existing favorites. With Chromecast built-in™ and Netflix® ready, hotel guests have access to an intuitive and familiar entertainment experience, allowing them to cast their preferred streaming apps directly on the TV, or to cast them from their mobile device or laptop. All ready to pick up, exactly where they left off, with no added hardware or wires needed.
Available in multiple screen sizes, including 43”, 50”, 58”, 65”, and 75”, the 6214U series provides 400 nit, 4K UHD picture quality and a brand new, near bezel-free full metal anthracite color design. Complementing the MediaSuite 6214U range, the addition of the MediaSuite 5214U family offers hoteliers even more choices including near bezel-free black design, 350 nits, 4K UHD picture quality, and comes equipped with a stylish table stand out of the box.
With Chromecast built-in featured as standard on all Philips MediaSuite TVs – the only hospitality TV in North America to do so – guests can cast and enjoy movies, videos, presentations, and more, in up to 4K, from their personal device. The functionality within the Philips MediaSuite eliminates the need for unsightly external set-top boxes and hardware to manage brand messaging, guest customization, and channel management, and removes the risk of theft while keeping external wiring to a minimum for more secure, cleaner installations.
“With Philips MediaSuite there is no need to invest in additional peripherals for casting – the beauty really does all lie within. Combining unparalleled choice and quality with cost-saving opportunities, it is now the go-to choice for many of the world’s leading hotel chains. There is no better hospitality TV solution in the current market,” Verhaeghe said.
With hygiene being top of mind for hoteliers and guests alike, Philips MediaSuite 6214U TVs also now come equipped with a Philips Premium Hygienic Remote Control. Made from anti-microbial materials, the remote is entirely cavity-free – including no raised buttons and an anti-theft battery cover – allowing for fast and simple cleaning and reducing the risk of spreading harmful germs and bacteria.
“Our customers’ needs never stop evolving, including how and when guests choose to view content. So, we must stay one step ahead, ensuring we’re prepared and ready to cater to today’s requirements, and able to adapt immediately should the environment suddenly change or evolve. Philips MediaSuite is a smarter choice across the board, saving the hotelier per room at installation and into the future, as our firmware updates extend the TV’s lifetime. Of course, having the industry’s best warranty demonstrates we are in it for the long haul,” Joe King, Vice President, Hospitality at PPDS.
