PPDS will be attending NAB Show 2024 in Las Vegas to showcase its latest suite of solutions for the broadcast industry, including Philips Professional Displays and videowalls. They will be exhibiting their products at booth C3544 and will be part of a combined ‘total solution’ studio offering with partners FX Design Group, Digital Video Group (DVG), and tvONE.

The purpose of this announcement is to inform the industry about PPDS’ presence at NAB Show 2024 and their focus on providing high-quality solutions for TV studios and broadcast environments. It also highlights their successful partnerships and recent projects in the North American broadcast market, emphasizing their commitment to delivering innovative and reliable display solutions for the media and entertainment industry.

PPDS, the exclusive global provider of Philips digital signage, interactive displays, videowalls and dvLED, is excited to confirm its attendance at NAB Show 2024 (April 13-17) in Las Vegas, showcasing its latest suite of solutions for the broadcast industry as leading US TV studios continue to switch over to the benefits of Philips Professional Displays.

Exhibiting on booth C3544 (Central Hall) at the Las Vegas Convention Center – which attracted more than 65,000 visitors from 166 countries at NAB Show 2023 – PPDS’ attendance follows its most successful year-to-date in the North American broadcast market, with Philips Professional Displays becoming the brand of choice for a growing number of leading integrators and set designers.

As part of an increased focus on the broadcast sector, PPDS teams will be joining industry specialists, FX Design Group – an award-winning broadcast set and lighting designer – and Digital Video Group (DVG) – a global supplier and system integrator of broadcast and production systems – on a special ‘TV studio’ designed stage, as part of a combined ‘total solution’ studio offering.

Rounding out the solution combination is tvONE, a leader in video processing, who’s CORIOmaster2 will be utilized to drive all content to the various displays throughout the booth. CORIOmaster2 is the first choice video processor for broadcasters around the globe due to its broadcast compatible inputs combined with stunning pixel accurate scaling, multi-windowing, eye-catching transitions, and 24/7 reliability.

Recent projects – completed by DVG – in which Philips Professional Displays are a prominent (if not exclusive) fixture, include WAVY TV (Norfolk, Virginia), KTLA-TV (Los Angeles), CBS 4 (Indianapolis, Indiana), and KHON TV (Honolulu, Hawaii), to name just a few.

Solutions featured in these projects and being demonstrated by the PPDS team on their booth at NAB Show 2024 include:

  • Philips Unite LED 6000 Series: Designed for 24/7 use, and capable of presenting content in resolutions beyond 8K, Philips Unite 6000 Series dvLED displays provide the perfect backdrop (16:9, 21:9 or 32:9) for any TV studio looking to make a big impression. Fine-tuned to suit its surroundings, whether positioned behind TV presenters or used as an additional display during weather forecasts and special news reports or features, Philips Unite 6000 Series guarantees crystal clear performance during broadcasts, delivering superior depths of black, white and colours, matched by the clearest, crispest resolution.
  • Philips Videowall X-Line Series (55”): Designed for 24/7 operation, the versatile Philips Videowall X-Line display has been designed to captivate a viewer’s attention with 4K picture quality. Its high brightness and perfectly balanced white calibration ensure flawless text and image visibility both in the studio and to viewers tuning in. Ultra-thin bezels enable spectacular videowall design configurations of any size, while FailOver technology means screens never go blank, automatically switching between primary and secondary inputs to ensure content keeps playing even if the primary source goes down.
  • Philips Signage 4000 Series D-Line (86”): The Android SoC Philips Signage 4000 Series D-Line is designed to engage audiences and is perfect for displaying content chosen to make a powerful impact. Bringing additional opportunities for broadcast, Philips Signage D-Line features QuadViewer, transforming the display into a stylishly framed 2 x 2 videowall with no interior bezels. Also featuring FailOver, Philips Signage D-Line’s modular design helps to extend product lifetimes, with specific components easily replaced, removing the need for entire unit upgrades. This helps to reduce costs and boost sustainability credentials for TV studios by cutting their electronic waste.
