PPDS (aka: Philips digital signage) has announced a strategic partnership with Userful where Philips digital signage and dvLED solutions are becoming certified for use on the Userful Infinity Platform for mission-critical environments.

This essential collaboration with Userful extends PPDS’ commitment to delivering ‘total solutions’ to its customers. The Infinity Platform provides enterprise AV/IT teams with fully integrated and secure digital signage solutions. Designed for mission-critical environments, and with more than 1,000-plus companies from over 100 countries using the platform, including Deloitte, NASA, Ford, and Hilton – the partnership runs into the technology, with Userful’s ‘uClient’ application sitting directly in PPDS’ range of Philips professional displays with Android SoC. This eliminates the need for additional hardware or cabling while ensuring seamless integration and end-to-end interoperability of displays (and other solutions) running on the Infinity digital ecosystem.

Julian Lim, Sales Director SEA at PPDS, commented: “We are delighted to have partnered with Userful to bring even more value and choice to our growing range of customers here in Asia Pacific. Today, there is an increasing synergy between AV products in IT environments, and the Infinity Platform is an ideal solution to bring those worlds together in a simple and efficient way. Enabling our Philips professional displays with Userful’s Infinity Platform provides IT departments and AV departments with a hybrid solution for their needs, whether they want to deploy on-premise, in data centers, or from the Cloud. Userful’s Infinity Platform provides unparalleled flexibility for Philips visual endpoints.”

Robert Huijsmans, COO at Userful added: “We are excited to partner with PPDS, certifying Philips professional displays to offer customers even more powerful, versatile, and flexible deployments of AV solutions. Integrating our Infinity Platform with these Philips displays provides customers unparalleled flexibility and control over their AV solutions, whether digital signage applications, data dashboards, huddle rooms, conference spaces or control rooms.”
