PPDS certifies certain Philips displays for use with Userful digital signage software
Wednesday, May 24, 2023
Selected Philips digital signage and dvLED displays become certified for the ‘Userful Infinity Platform’ bringing advanced control and secure management to its displays.
Amsterdam, May 2023: Announced and demonstrated on the Philips booth (F01) at InfoComm Asia 2023, the Infinity Platform provides enterprise AV/IT teams with a comprehensive, fully integrated, and secure digital signage solution.
Userful’s ‘uClient’ application sits directly in PPDS’ range of Philips professional displays with Android SoC. This eliminates the need for additional hardware or cabling, while ensuring seamless integration and end-to-end interoperability of displays (and other solutions) running on the Infinity digital ecosystem.
AV/ IT enterprise customers/administrators will also benefit from Userful’s Signage Plus license, receiving a
scalable and cost-effective content delivery network (CDN) to distribute media content efficiently on multiple
and single displays.
Julian Lim, Sales Director SEA at PPDS, commented: “We are delighted to have partnered with Userful to bring
even more value and choice to our growing range of customers here in Asia Pacific. Today, there is an
increasing synergy between AV products in IT environments, and the Infinity Platform is an ideal solution to
bring those worlds together in a simple and efficient way. Enabling our Philips professional displays with
Userful's Infinity Platform provides IT departments and AV departments with a hybrid solution for their needs,
whether they want to deploy on premise, in data centres, or from the Cloud. Userful’s Infinity Platform
provides unparalleled flexibility for Philips visual endpoints.”
Robert Huijsmans, COO at Userful added: "We are excited to partner with PPDS, certifying Philips professional
displays to offer customers even more powerful, versatile, and flexible deployments of AV solutions. The
integration of our Infinity Platform with these Philips displays provides customers with unparalleled flexibility
and control over their AV solutions, whether these are digital signage applications, data dashboards, huddle
rooms, conference spaces or control rooms."
