Streaming into 2021: PPDS launches latest Philips MediaSuite into warehouses across EMEA
Next generation experience: Latest Philips MediaSuite hospitality TVs feature stylish new design options, plus enhanced functionality, features and benefits for users and managers.
The latest models of our ground-breaking Philips MediaSuite hospitality TVs – the HFL5114 and HFL6114 – are now available in warehouses across EMEA.
Further building on PPDS’ commitment to providing market-leading products and solutions to the hospitality sector, the latest MediaSuite models span six size options – ranging from 32” to 75” – each designed to ensure the highest and most personalised end user experience available in the market.
Available in 43”, 50”, 55”, 65” and 75”, the HFL6114U series provides stunning 4K UHD (3840x2160) picture quality and comes with a brand new, super-slim, silver metal bezel design, together with a stylish matching stand.
The HFL5114U, optimised for wall-mounted installations, is available in 43” and 50” options and matches the 6114U’s 4K UHD capabilities, while the 5114 – available in 32” and 43” – provides a high quality FHD option. Both are designed with a stylish black bezel.
Philips MediaSuite: Streaming with new benefits
As with previous models, these latest release MediaSuites with Android TVTM OS have Chromecast built-inTM, allowing guests to stream and view content – be it photos, movies, music or even presentations – instantly and in up to 4K from their compatible laptop or mobile device (IOS, AndroidTM or Windows) with just the touch of a button and with no new apps or additional hardware required.
Users also have access to thousands of popular apps on Google Play, including popular services such as local news, weather and traffic information, as well as content streaming from providers such as YouTubeTM, Deezer and Spotify, plus Disney+ and Netflix.
Elaborating on the features of the new Philips MediaSuite range, Jeroen Verhaeghe, PPDS Global Product Manager, said: “As a market leader, we continue to drive the market forward. With the HFL5114 and 6114, we’re driving the market up another gear. Bringing even more features and benefits to hoteliers and guests and once again cementing our position as the brand of choice for innovation in Professional TVs.”
Voice control, enhanced security and Netflix ready
The new 5114 and 6114 MediaSuite TVs come pre-installed with exciting new features and functionality for an enhanced and more personalised user experience.
These include Google Assistant’s voice control functionality*, latest security updates, and a more personalised and intelligent content selection. Plus, the ability to embed Netflix – the world’s most popular streaming platform with more than 203 million paid memberships – allowing users to enjoy seamless access to all their favourite movies and shows.
Next generation hospitality TVs: Set for sustainability
With the latest version of Android TV OS, introduced in October 2020, all existing HFL6014 and HFL5014 models can be updated to include these benefits as a part of the PPDS ‘extended lifetime’ guarantee. Allowing older models to be upgraded to bring cutting-edge experience to life for longer and building on the company’s strategy to spearhead a more sustainable way of working for the AV industry.
“At PPDS, we always place customer experience at the heart of what we do. Entertainment is a big part of the experience when staying in a hotel. With our TVs running on Android TV OS, our extended lifetime guarantee ensures guests can always enjoy a home from home experience, choosing to watch or listen to their own content on or through the big screen, rather than their smaller personal device. Likewise, for hoteliers, having the ability to upgrade their fleet of TVs to ensure expectations are met, rather than being forced to invest heavily in new models is invaluable – for them and for the planet.”
