PPDS, the exclusive global provider of Philips digital signage, interactive displays, direct view LED, and professional TVs, is thrilled to introduce its network of state-of-the-art PPDS Studios. These studios offer customers and partners unparalleled access to the complete range of products and solutions, fostering inspired co-creation and facilitating better-informed decisions.
As part of PPDS’ dedication to supporting partners, including system integrators, consultants, distributors, and AV/IT designers/architects, the PPDS Studios have been officially inaugurated in North America, specifically in Charlotte, North Carolina. (Note: Additional PPDS Studios have been established across Europe in Amsterdam, Madrid, Paris, Stockholm, Munich, Milan, and near Cheltenham in the UK). The plan is to open more PPDS Studios throughout 2023 and beyond.
Representing a substantial investment and an extension of the company’s strategy to be accessible both in-person and online, the PPDS Studios serve as ideal spaces for teams to collaborate, innovate, and co-create customized solutions within a convenient, multidisciplinary environment.
Operated by local PPDS teams, these fully-equipped Studios showcase PPDS’ extensive range of dedicated Philips professional display products and solutions. This includes third-party hardware from partners such as Crestron and Logitech, as well as software collaborations with Intel, i3, and GoBright. The solutions cater to various sectors, including hospitality, corporate, education, retail, food and beverage, public spaces, transportation, and broadcast.
To fully experience the capabilities of PPDS and its partner technologies, all Studios are interconnected, enabling real-time demonstrations and training. Whether through seamless video calls and content sharing between different locations or remote management of a network of dvLED, digital signage, and professional TVs from afar, partners and customers can benefit from this connectivity.
Furthermore, PPDS Studios will function as high-end event spaces, offering partners, resellers, and end customers the opportunity to create immersive digital environments using PPDS’ solutions for effective communication and branding.
These Studios present a convenient alternative for individuals who may prefer not to attend bustling annual tradeshows and events like ISE and InfoComm. The quieter, more convenient, and intimate setting of PPDS Studios allows for the exploration of the latest solutions from PPDS.
Martijn van der Woude, Vice President of Global Marketing and Business Development at PPDS, emphasized, “With our new multidiscipline PPDS Studios, partners and customers—whatever vertical they operate in—will have access to all the tools and information they require, in a single location.”
Ron Cottaar, Director of Global Marketing, added, “PPDS Studios are your space to come together with your customers to showcase your solutions, where great teamwork and partnerships drive evolution for our customers’ business vision.”
