E Ink and PPDS Announce Philips Tableaux 5150I Series using E Ink Spectra 6


E Ink announced today that their customer, PPDS (aka: Phillips Digital Signage), announced additions to its ePaper signage range, with the launch of the new 32-inch (16:9) Philips Tableaux 5150I Series using E Ink Spectra 6.

E Ink launched Spectra 6 in April 2023 and it features sunlight readability, low power consumption, and compatibility with solar power systems. According to research conducted by E Ink, if 100,000 ePaper signage operate for 20 hours a day, update their ads 20 times per hour, and last for five years, the use of ePaper signage is estimated to reduce CO2 emissions by 500,000 tons compared to LCD signage. Compared to traditional paper posters printed once and disposed of, ePaper signage can reduce CO2 emissions by about 21 million tons. Using low-power E Ink displays can enable retailers and advertisers to reach their sustainability goals while still providing timely updates seamlessly.

Scheduled to debut at a launch event in November, with its first global showcasing at ISE 2024 in Barcelona (Jan. 30-Feb. 2, 2024), PPDS will be the first customer to launch with the new 31.5-inch E Ink Spectra module. The Philips Tableaux 5150I can be used as a standalone solution or as part of a fleet of displays across multiple locations around the world and can be managed manually or remotely using third-party or PPDS’s in-house software.

Due to E Ink’s unique image stability, the 32-inch 5150I model can display static imagery without drawing on any energy source, only requiring low power 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.
