• Ambilight lighting technology provides a unique signage experience
  • Ambilight virtually enlarges the signage display
  • Upcoming Philips Q-line displays will be the world’s first signage displays featuring Ambilight

Amsterdam, February 10, 2015 –MMD, brand license partner for Philips Signage solutions, showcased its first Philips signage displays featuring Ambilight technology at the Integrated Systems Europe ISE fair in Amsterdam today. Ambilight’s LED lighting technology throws a glow of light – matching on-screen colours – onto the wall behind the signage display. This dynamic halo of light boosts the degree of attention from people passing by the signage by providing the impression of a virtually expanded display giving the viewer a larger-than-screen signage experience.

Unique, reliable lighting technology
Ambilight is a proven LED lighting technology, which has been installed in more than 10 million Philips consumer and hospitality TVs. It uses high-performance, coloured LEDs that are integrated into the displays’ rear cover.

Philips Q-line: World’s first signage solution featuring Ambilight
Ambilight will enter the signage industry during the third quarter of 2015. The upcoming, newly designed Philips Q-line models will be the world’s first signage displays featuring Ambilight. The halo produced by Ambilight complements the crisp and vivid pictures of Q-line displays with a direct LED backlight for the highest possible contrast.

Smart, good value performance
This powerful yet economical signage range features Ambilight, direct LED backlights, dual core processors, expanded internal memory, easy to use and secure remote access, and many more state of the art features.
