PPDS (formerly Philips Professional Display Solutions) has announced the availability of its range of Chromecast built-in and Crestron-Connected certified B-Line Ultra HD pro TVs.
The product was first teased at ISE 2020 in Amsterdam with this video:
Combining the latest UHD display technology, powered by Android and Google and Crestron-Connected, B-Line offers content sharing and presentation capabilities to various meeting spaces — while its content creation and scheduling tools, plus TV Tuner, also make B-Line an option for any food and beverage business, including bars, restaurants and kiosks.
Here’s a video explaining the features:
The B-Line includes Chromecast built-in thus, users can cast content from any Apple, Windows or Android device directly onto the display.
In addition to being Crestron Connected, Extron, and Neets IP control compatible, and with Crestron/Extron SXP drivers available, the B-Line features HDMI Hotplug detection — automatically finding and responding to a user’s actions so that they can connect their device via one of the HDMI inputs.
Running on the latest Android P software and with a TV tuner, B-Line displays provide instant access to a wide range of apps and services via Google Play, and can be upgraded as and when updates are released, stretching investments and extending lifetime.
