Philips Professional Display Solutions has launched its latest X-Line videowall displays – a brand line up in its range of advanced, near bezel-less full HD displays, bringing visual uniformity specifically designed for perfect presentations in meeting rooms, the corporate marketplace and brighter areas.
Teased on the Philips PDS stand during ISE 2020, the new 55in (55BDL3105X and 55BDL3107X) X-Line videowall range is suitable for larger-sized meeting and boardrooms where single panel LCD displays are not deemed sufficient, or where existing videowalls struggle to meet presentation needs.
With X-Line’s high resolution setup and Pure Colour Pro technology for depths of black and high-brightness colour levels, even the most detailed or complex Excel files and graphs can be viewed with the crispest clarity in any lighting condition.
Harold Niericker, Product Strategist for Professional Displays at Philips Professional Display Solutions, says, “Whether it’s two panels or 100, we believe this X-Line corporate videowall is the most complete and consistent videowall solution available in today’s market.”
“At Philips Professional Display Solutions, we acknowledge there are many different videowall options available in the market today, so it was important for us to design and build a solution that didn’t simply follow what’s already there. We dug deep into researching and understanding the pains and frustrations experienced using displays inside meeting rooms and boardrooms, where portraying the right image and displaying content clearly is absolutely vital. This new X-Line range addresses those issues and provides the tools to help companies present themselves in the very best light.”
The X-Line range from Philips Professional Display Solutions is the result of intensive collaboration and analysis of the display market (EMEA), which showed demand for digital videowall displays of 5in-5in increased by 5% in 2019. In contrast, sales of 45in-49in fell almost 10%, while those sized 60in and above plummeted by 37%.
Externally, too, X-Line videowalls offer a seamless visual performance, with a 3.5mm bezel providing a near seamless connectivity between panels, and the FHD (1929x1080p) resolution, offering native UHD on a 2×2 videowall offer a 500cd/m2 brightness.
These new corporate videowall panels feature optional ‘light sensors’, which, when combined with Philips Professional Display Solutions’ Pure Colour Pro technology, deliver higher luminance through custom colour temperature settings. The displays are optimised to automatically adjust to maintain high image quality, precise white balance and accurate colour consistency.
The displays can also come equipped with optional ‘Human Motion’ sensors, which turns display power up and down, depending on room activity.
“Natural light is a common enemy of any display,” adds Niericker. “Sure, you can spend time closing curtains, adjusting your screen or even asking people to sit in specific seats – but at Philips Professional Display Solutions, we’d rather you just concentrate on what you do best and let our displays take care of the conditions, whether its natural or indoor light.”
Consistent with other displays in the Philips Professional Display Solutions product portfolio, the X-Line corporate videowall range comes equipped with vast levels of command and remote management controls, harnessing widely-used standards for corporate environments, including Philips Professional Display Solutions’ exclusive CMND platform.
Designed to put the end user in control, CMND facilitates a fast and simple platform for content creation, advanced system connectivity and pro-grade deployment through an easy to use interface.
Users are able perform vital functions, whether on one or multiple displays, including controlling inputs and monitoring display status, resolving problems as and when they arise, or performing important updates entirely remotely. Its drag-and-drop interface makes it simple to publish any content.
X-Line customers can also enjoy the processing power of Android, with an optional CRD50 module, which can be easily inserted into one of the OPS slots, containing all the connections needed – including power supply – and removing the need to add an Android module for each display.
Chris Colpaert, General Manager for EMEA, AP and NA at Philips Professional Display Solutions, concludes, “These models are the perfect addition to our X-Line range, which now covers the ideal videowall displays for either video content or presentations. Bringing an additional layer to our displays with dedicated features for corporate and meeting room environments, including our new B-Line professional TVs, C-Line interactive displays and Q-Line displays with screen sharing, they’re the latest example of Philips Professional Display Solutions bringing products to customers designed explicitly to meet vertically aligned requirements. At the right times, at competitive price points and with a wraparound service to meet their needs.”
