PPDS wins inaugural ‘Sustainability’ award at InfoComm 2023 with Philips Tableaux ePaper displays
Public approval: AV industry vote sees Philips Tableaux beat other industry heavyweights to claim coveted prize at prestigious annual SCN award ceremony in Orlando.
PPDS, the exclusive global provider of Philips professional displays and complementary solutions, is proud to have made a winning start at InfoComm 2023, with the Philips Tableaux digital signage Series being named winner of the inaugural sustainability category at the annual SCN Installation Product Awards.
Held on the eve of the show at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, leading manufacturers from around the world gathered for the coveted and hotly contested annual award ceremony, which recognizes the most innovative commercial AV products launched in the past 12 months, with winners determined by a public vote.
PPDS has taken a leadership stance in developing technology to significantly reduce power consumption of both new and existing products, without compromising quality of performance. The Philips Tableaux is a prime example of these efforts, providing incredible benefits for a wide range of market verticals, including retail, food and beverage, corporate, public spaces, transportation, and more.
A new generation of digital signage
On display for the first time at InfoComm 2023 on Philips booth 929, Philips Tableaux marks the introduction of a brand new digital signage category for PPDS, becoming the first global display manufacturer to introduce a full size, Advanced Color ePaper (ACeP) solution.
Already a multi award winner, Philips Tableaux is a pioneer for full color (including blue), energy efficient and eco-friendly digital displays available at launch as a 25” 16:9 display, and with more sizes quickly due to follow. The groundbreaking displays deliver vivid content while running unplugged, using zero power to show an image 24/7/365. A super low power source is only required when content is being updated (just 0.0025kWh for one image change) – via USB, LAN or wifi connection – and power consumption immediately reverts to zero when the new image has been uploaded. Content updates can be managed manually or entirely remotely, using PPDS’ in-house or third party display management platforms.
Philips Tableaux are ideal for businesses seeking to effortlessly digitise paper-based signage, or to swap out existing digital displays showing static content more energy efficiently, with no refresh rates and no back light needed.
Martijn van der Woude, VP Global Marketing and Business Development at PPDS, commented: “We are absolutely delighted to have received this fantastic award here in the US, adding to the accolades for Philips Tableaux in Europe and showing it is a winning product across the continents. Having been voted a winner by the public also gives us an additional sense of pride. Sustainability is a key focus for PPDS, and something we, as a team globally, are incredibly passionate about. We couldn’t have asked for a better start to InfoComm 2023 here in Orlando.”
Franck Racapé, VP Global Commercial, added: “On behalf of PPDS, I would like to thank everyone who voted for Philips Tableaux for this prestigious award. The interest and excitement around this product have been overwhelming, and this, in tandem with this new award, is further validation that our strategy to deliver highly impactful and sustainable solutions is the right one. We can’t wait to show the Philips Tableaux, along with our other digital signage, dvLED (including the new Philips In-Room LED 6300 series) and interactive solutions to the North American market.”
