PPDS, the exclusive global provider of Philips professional display and solutions, is excited to announce the launch of the Philips 6000 Series—a brand new range of highly flexible, beyond 8K, direct view LED displays, designed exclusively for the creation of 16:9 or 32:9 displays, often used in corporate environments or any place where standard ratio content is being played.

Unveiled at ISE 2022 in Barcelona (stand 3Q600), the new Philips 6000 Series LED—the latest in a growing line of vertical-specific direct view LED solutions from PPDS—pushes beyond the boundaries of traditional videowall displays, bringing unrivalled performance and effortless bezel-free installations of any shape, size or resolution to meeting rooms, boardrooms, auditoriums, and lobbies.

Available in three 27-inch landscape panels, with a native 16:9 resolution, and across three different pixel pitch variants—1.26 (27BDL6112L), 1.583 (27BDL6115L), and 1.9 (27BDL6119L)—the stunning Philips 6000 Series has been designed for 24/7, round-the-clock use and comes equipped with an extensive range of dedicated features and capabilities, supporting a multitude of visual needs and requirements.

Engage, inspire and impact

With PPDS’ trademark modular design, Philips L-Line offers the freedom and the flexibility to adapt to any indoor environment, regardless of room size or shape—whether it’s installing a traditional 16:9 videowall, a massive and immersive 32:9 wide screen, or a vast array flowing seamlessly around doorways and other openings for unique branding and messaging opportunities. Installation times are swift and effortless, simply connecting multiple LED display cabinets to create the resolution that best suits your needs, in 4K, 8K resolutions, or even higher.

Boasting some of the highest refresh rates (1920~3840 Hz) compared to many LCD and LED solutions in the current market, the Philips 6000 Series guarantees uncompromised, smooth and judder-free viewing experiences. Even the smallest (and most important) details—such as blurred or fuzzy words and numbers in presentations—are displayed and delivered with crystal clear sharpness over distances of up to 22 feet, viewable at almost any front facing angle (up to 160 degrees).

Bringing content to life—whether a presentation, video, or branded messaging—Philips 6000 Series panels also boast among the highest levels of color accuracy, deep black contrast, and a brightness (up to 750 nits before calibration) uniformity of up to 97%, ensuring near perfect picture quality delivered in the way you want it, at all times.

“The versatility of Philips 6000 Series truly sets itself apart, providing infinite design possibilities to suit a variety of different settings and uses within a corporate environment," said Jeroen Brants, global product manager LED displays at PPDS. "Whether it’s for hosting the perfect meeting or creating a positive first impression in reception, displaying bright and clear branded content, Philips 6000 Series won’t let you down in providing the perfect viewing experience.”

Smart locking and front panel access for seamless connections

For the ultimate visual experience, and setting it apart from many competing models, the Philips 6000 Series comes with a smart locking mechanism, helping to ensure seamless connections between the LED cabinets / panels and the best possible screen flatness.

And that’s not all. As with all Philips LED products from PPDS, and inspired by market feedback, the Philips 6000 Series also offers front facing access to its internal electronics and cabling, for fast, hassle free, easy setup and maintenance. The modules in each cabinet can be easily and safely removed using a dedicated removal tool, reducing the need for lengthy, inconvenient and potentially costly de and re-installations if the need arises.

Safety and sustainability

Ensuring safety comes first, the Philips 6000 Series DV LED range has been tested and certified with BS476-7, class 1 certification for all three pixel pitches available. Delivering on a core requirement for public settings, where fire safety certification is business critical.  

Finally, in addition to offering greater energy efficiency when compared to similar displays available on the market, the 6000 Series also benefits from Dynamic and Black screen power saving features, automatically and intelligently powering down when not in use. This helps to further reduce the total cost of ownership, while extending the life of each LED panel (typically 100,000 hours) for a greater RoI.
