Portrait or landscape mountable, Philips S-Line can transform almost any surface—including over shelving, above busy order points, in transport hubs and in other narrow spaces—into a hive of digital activity that demands to be seen. From general communications that include branding, marketing, area/exhibition information and timetables, to wayfinding, menu boards, and many more, Philips S-Line is guaranteed to make a wide impression. At just 7.76 kg, the displays can also be mounted in a broader range of spaces, including on temporary walls, such as those used on kiosks and in concessions and pop ups within shopping malls.

Built with flexibility in mind, and to remove current marketplace limitations, Philips S-Line displays can be installed as a standalone solution or seamlessly daisy chained using PPDS’ versatile HMDI linking technology, as part of a multi-display setup for more creative yet compact designs. For tiled setups, simply connect two or more displays using a single external player.

Philips S-Line comes equipped with an extensive range of out-of-the-box solutions to ensure seamless integration and almost instant setup.

Running on Android 8, Philips S-Line is optimized for native Android apps, with users able to install their desired apps directly to the display. And featuring an integrated media player, content can be created and easily scheduled via a USB and internal memory, helping to ensure displays remain active at all times, even in the event of a network outage. Philips S-Line displays wake from standby to play the content you want, and then return to standby once playback is done.
