PPDS (aka: Philips Digital Signage) is including Chromecast wireless streaming technology on all current and future Google certified, Philips MediaSuite hospitality TVs. PPDS says its Chromecast built-in has been welcomed by hoteliers and hospitality integrators globally following Google’s announcement, made on Sept. 22, that it will discontinue its third generation external Chromecast — a unit that is functionally equivalent to the Chromecast built-in to Philips MediaSuite TVs.

An integral part of PPDS’ strategy in putting guests in control of their in-room entertainment experience, while bringing extensive back-end features, capabilities (including personalization) and cost efficiencies to hoteliers, the inclusion of Chromecast built-in on Philips MediaSuite TVs has been a key differentiator in the market. Global sales of Philips MediaSuite are set to exceed 300,000 by the end of this year and Philips MediaSuite TVs, and the Philips B-Line display, which also comes with Chromecast built-in as standard, have also become a popular choice in student accommodation, meeting rooms and corporate huddle spaces, bars and restaurants, to name just a few.

At the touch of a button, guests can wirelessly cast movies, TV shows, music, photos and even presentations, stored or accessible via their own personal smart device (mobile, laptop, tablet), directly to the TV, in up to 4K resolution. There are now over 10,000+ apps to choose from, including Apple TV+, Disney+, HBO Max, Netflix, Spotify and YouTube, with new services able to be added remotely as and when they become available.
