PPDS, the exclusive global provider of Philips digital signage, announced a new strategic partnership with Key Digital – a manufacturer of digital video distribution and control systems – to bring new levels of support to bars and restaurants (including in hotels, fast food and cafes) in the way they manage and control their AV solutions, for greater customer experiences and lucrative business opportunities and outcomes.
Part of PPDS’ evolving strategy to support and bring dedicated solutions to the food and beverage industry, the new partnership with Key Digital represents the latest evolution of the company’s ‘total solutions’ strategy, by combining its state-of-the-art display technology with other industry-leading third-party solutions (including hardware and software) for added market value and end-user experiences.
Working seamlessly across a variety of dedicated Philips professional displays for the food, beverage, and hospitality industry – including professional TVs (such as Philips B-Line), digital signage (Philips Q-Line, Philips D-Line) touch and kiosk displays (Philips T-line) among others – Key Digital brings a range of new game-changing solutions to streamline the control and distribution of content to displays – including from a smartphone – as well as the management of other AV applications within their AV ecosystem (i.e. audio, lighting, security). Examples of benefits provided by Key Digital’s user-friendly AV solutions can be viewed here.
Restaurant operators are increasingly investing in AV equipment to entertain patrons and to establish an exciting vibe in their venues. This has led to more complex AV ecosystems and a challenge of how to control them using non-technical staff.
