PPDS announces partnership with Logitech to bring ‘world class’ capabilities to Philips professional displays for corporate and education settings
This latest PPDS partnership combines Logitech’s advanced range of video conferencing and audio solutions with the dedicated Philips-branded corporate and education display ranges to offer extensive, unrivaled online meeting and collaboration capabilities for hybrid working and learning.
PPDS is delighted to announce the latest evolution of its ‘total solutions’ strategy, building on its partnership with Logitech – the world’s #1 provider of USB video conferencing devices – to create one of the most complete and inclusive collaborative meeting and learning experiences for the corporate and education markets on Philips-branded professional displays.
Adding even more choice to PPDS’ ever-growing global base of partners and customers, this exciting strategic collaboration with Logitech has been formed to address the current and future needs for video conferencing and audio for business and education customers – whether on-site or remotely – for more inclusive outcomes.
Video conferencing has become a preferred way to comminate with peers, partners, customers and, within education (hybrid, blended, absent and distance learning), with many businesses adopting a video-first culture to help energize and empower their workforce.
Pre-pandemic, the market was already thriving, valued at more than €4.8 billion, with forecast growth topping €9.2 billion by 2027. With the current global conditions, the role and need for reliable, high-quality, professional video conferencing solutions has never been greater, nor more important. One popular video conferencing platform provider experienced a 354 percent increase in subscribers during 2020, hosting approximately 300 million meetings per day.
Plug and play
Working together, PPDS and Logitech bring plug-and-play connectivity and validated compatibility and seamless integration between a range of collaboration-inspired Philips professional displays for both corporate and education settings and a range of Logitech products. Each is designed to meet specific needs and requirements based on the environments in which they will be used, whether at the desktop or a small office at home, a huddle space, vast boardroom, a classroom or lecture theatre.
For corporate environments, these include the Crestron Connected certified, Windows or Android powered, UHD Philips C-Line interactive range, and the Crestron Connected, Extron and Neets compatible, Chromecast built-in Philips B-Line range for smaller meeting rooms and huddle spaces.
For education, a range of Logitech solutions can now connect seamlessly with PPDS’ multi-touch, 4K Philips T-Line range for smarter, more engaging in-class and hybrid or blended learning experiences.
With Logitech products – which include the Brio, Rally Bar Mini, Rally Bar and Rally Plus – starting video conferencing meetings has never been easier, with one-touch, seamless connection on a solution that works for the user, including GoTo, Microsoft, Zoom, Pexip and RingCentral.
