World leading signage company Philips Professional Display Solutions is appearing at the Gulf Information Technology Exhibition (GITEX) in a big way thanks to the largest installation of Videowall products at the show.
Philips are the inventors of the Videowall and have been selected by the largest telecom provider in the UAE to provide 130 professional Videowall monitors to be featured throughout the company’s stand.
GITEX technology week runs from 8th -12th October and is an annual consumer computer and electronics trade show, exhibition, and conference that takes place at the World Trade Centre in Dubai - the world’s fastest growing technology hub.
Supplied and installed by Philips local partner Blue Rhine, the installation features 130 of the latest BDL4988XC Videowall displays – a state of the art, 49” Direct LED Backlight, Full HD model.
The BDL4988 offers a truly immersive, scalable experience thanks to its ultra-narrow bezel – one of the narrowest available – allowing seamless video wall configurations to be built of virtually any size.
Content looks exceptional thanks to latest IPS wide view technology, giving remarkably crisp images with vivid colours over 178/178 degrees, making it possible to view the display from almost any angle. Full HD LED technology offers a super high contrast ratio, consistent brightness across the screen and superior colour reproduction.
As an industry leading signage solutions business, Philips has also ensured that any content will run on uninterrupted thanks to Failover protection, SmartPower energy saving, 24/7 superior components and an easy to use built-in Smart Player.
Commenting on GITEX, Wim De Geest, Executive Director MEA for Philips Professional Signage & Hospitality Solutions said: ‘Philips is a major presence in the MEA signage market so it is fantastic that we can attend GITEX and in partnership with the largest telecom business in the region. It confirms that Philips offers an unbeatable combination of product quality, reliability and service’.
