Philips is introducing a new line of digital signage displays called the Q Series that will be available with Philips’ new Ambilight technology. Ambilight technology is designed to perceptually make a monitor’s image look much wider — and the viewing experience more immersive — by projecting an extra wide glow from two sides of a signage display onto the surrounding wall.
The new Q-line models will be available with and without Amiblight in four sizes: 55’’, 48’’, 43’’ and 32’’. In addition, each model includes an HTML5 SmartBrowser and expanded internal memory, which serves as a memory cache when streaming online content. If the network ever fails, the internal memory keeps content streaming by playing a cached version of the content, ensuring that content is always displayed on a digital signage network even when there is no network connection.
Each Q-Series uses an LED backlit LCD and is native 1080p resolution. It’s integrated with SmartControl software, which Philips says allows remote control and management of a network of displays via RJ45 and RS232C.
