PPDS returns to hospitality
April 13, 2021
PPDS is celebrating its return to the hospitality market in North America, with the exciting launch of a brand-new range of futureproof Philips MediaSuite pro Android TVs, bringing unrivaled 4K picture performance, advanced entertainment choice, and extensive customization features to the hotel industry.
Ending a hiatus, today’s announcement follows extensive market research and collaboration with the channel – from resellers and distributors to hotel owners and guests – in order to create a world-leading service. This solution raises the bar to meet the needs of the modern consumer, while also maximizing ROI, extending product lifetime (fewer replacements), and addressing sustainability.
Arriving in North America after a highly successful launch in Europe, the new Philips MediaSuite range comes in a variety of sizes, from 43” to 75”. MediaSuite provides the perfect centerpiece for guest rooms of any size, whether in a small boutique hotel or a luxury suite, setting the foundation for the most advanced home away from home experience available anywhere in today’s market.
Commenting on the company’s return, Joe King, VP Commercial Displays, North America at PPDS, hailed Philips MediaSuite as a true “game-changer” for the hospitality industry, revealing that demand is building from hoteliers across North America, following a sneak-peak preview last month.
“I am thrilled to finally be able to announce our return to the hospitality industry and to introduce a solution that truly raises the bar for hotel TVs,” said King, who has assembled an elite team of experienced AV hospitality specialists to execute the company’s relaunch into the marketplace.
“This is a hugely important milestone for PPDS and our AV channel partners, many of whom have been repeatedly asking to bring Philips Hotel TV to North America, so that we now have a truly global hotel solution. Even our team, which has more than 85 years of combined experienced in AV hospitality, can’t hide their excitement. We can’t wait for our partners and their customers to get their hands on it.”
