PPDS, global leader in the hospitality TV industry, has announced its latest evolution, the new range of premium 4K, Chromecast built-in and Netflix-ready, Philips MediaSuite TVs, bringing even more features and greater entertainment choices to hotel rooms.
The latest additions include the new Philips MediaSuite 6214U series and the MediaSuite 5214U family (both available in multiple screen sizes), combining the latest innovative and world-first features, while continuing to include all existing favorites. The 6214U series provides 400 nit, 4K UHD picture quality and a brand new, near bezel-free full metal anthracite color design, while the addition of the MediaSuite 5214U family offers hoteliers even more choice. Featuring a near bezel-free black design, the 5214U series offers 350 nit, 4K UHD picture quality and is equipped with a stylish table stand out of the box. Wall mounting is also available, depending on preference or room requirements. These are the only hospitality TVs with built in Chromecast.
The functionality within the Philips MediaSuite eliminates the need for set top boxes and hardware to manage brand messaging, guest customization and channel management, and removes the risk of theft, while keeping external wiring to a minimum for more secure, cleaner installations. The inclusion of Chromecast built-in simplifies the installation process further and can bring cost savings.
As with the current lines, the latest MediaSuite TVs can be managed remotely. Designed on an Android OS, firmware can be regularly updated with the latest features, functionality, and security updates. With hygiene being top of mind for hoteliers and guests alike, Philips MediaSuite 6214U TVs also now come equipped with a Philips Premium Hygienic Remote Control. Made from anti-microbial materials, the remote is entirely cavity-free – including no raised buttons and an anti-theft battery cover – allowing for fast and simple cleaning and reducing the risk of spreading harmful germs and bacteria. In addition, remote controls feature a highly secure Google Assistant microphone, allowing guests to control services through voice-activated commands, or via dedicated shortcut buttons.
