PPDS has launched the latest evolution of its ePaper signage range, with the launch of the 32” (16:9) Philips Tableaux 5150I.
Extending PPDS’ global strategy and commitment to bringing high-impact, more sustainable, energy conscious solutions to market, the new 32” Philips Tableaux 5150I signals a breakthrough in technology for larger form factor full colour ePaper displays, with PPDS at the forefront of innovation for this rapidly growing market, forecast to be worth almost $43.2 billion by 2030.
PPDS introduce a full size and full colour digital signage display into the market, with the debut of its 25” Philips Tableaux at ISE 2023. It is an energy efficient digital signage offering – and an energy saving solution for businesses looking to digitise their paper-based signage while also enhancing their sustainability credentials –Philips Tableaux captured the attention and imaginations of event attendees, partners, and customers around the world, thanks to its capabilities providing vivid 24/7 content while unplugged and entirely power-free.
Scheduled to debut at a launch event in November, with its first global showcasing at ISE 2024 in Barcelona (30 Jan – 2 Feb 2024) the new 32” Philips Tableaux 5150I takes PPDS’ ePaper portfolio to the next level, whether used as a standalone solution or as part of a fleet of displays across multiple locations around the world.
Martijn van der Woude, VP global marketing and business development at PPDS, commented: “At ISE 2023 we changed the game for digital signage with the introduction of our zero power consumption 25” Philips Tableaux Series, with education, retail, corporate, transportation (including airports), hospitality, food and beverage, and public venues among the early adopters to date.”
“Philips Tableaux ePaper displays offer a more sustainable solution that eliminates the need for paper consumption and waste, and the effects these would have on the environment. For 2024, we are leading the market once again with our new 32” model, bringing next generation ePaper technology forward. We can’t wait for you to see it.”
The 32” Philips Tableaux 5150I is said to be the world’s first signage display confirmed to run on E Ink’s ‘revolutionary’ and highly anticipated E Ink Spectra 6 colour platform.
Tailored for use on the Philips Tableaux – incorporating PPDS’ small bezels – the E Ink Spectra 6 31.5” platform delivers previously unachievable colour performance, using enhanced colour algorithms to provide a true print quality replacement for any paper sign on the 2560 x 1440, 16:9 digital display.
Andrea Barbuti, global product manager at PPDS, commented: “When seeing the Philips Tableaux 5150I in action, it is almost impossible to comprehend that you’re looking at a digital display and not a poster.
“Portrait or landscape mountable, the 32” Philips Tableaux 5150I is a perfect replacement for any paper-based communication – from posters, menus, in-store advertising and promotions, wayfinding, and timetables through to store opening hours. The opportunities are endless.”
As the latest member of PPDS’ ever-growing Android SoC family, the 32” Philips Tableaux 5150I Series can be managed manually, or remotely using third party or PPDS’ in house software. This includes PPDS Wave – the company’s exclusive secure cloud platform, providing advanced and effortless remote device management capabilities for Android SoC Philips Professional Display fleets of any size and in any location.
As on the 25” Philips Tableaux Series, the new 32” 5150I model can display static imagery without drawing on any energy source, only requiring super low power input when content is being updated.
For fixed installations, and in environments where regular image changes are required, the Philips Tableaux 5150I features Power over Ethernet (PoE), ensuring both power and connectivity for remote management.
With 16GB of internal memory and 2GB RAM, content can just as easily be updated via the USB, micro USB, Micro SD, LAN and WiFi 5 by simply plugging the Philips Tableaux 5150I into a nearby power source.
Details on availability and pricing will be announced in early 2024, with demonstrations due to take place throughout ISE in Barcelona and InfoComm in Las Vegas next year.
