Advance IR Control

Utilizing both IR Loop-through via RS232 connection and IR Pass-through, integrators have the ability to control an entire installation of displays plus hidden media players via a remote control. Simple and powerful, this means you don't have to dismantle a signage installation to access hidden media players and mounted displays.


Keeping your signage content up and running is critical for demanding commercial applications. While it is unlikely you will face a content disaster, Philips provides 24/7 protection with Failover, a revolutionary technology that plays back-up signage content on screen in the event of a media player failure. Failover automatically kicks in when the primary input fails. Simply select a primary input connection (Ex, Primary = DisplayPort) and a Failover input connection (Ex, Failover = HDMI, DVI, VGA) and you're ready for instant protection!

Multi-Screen Ready

Fully equipped with an Edge Alignment Kit, Slim Bezel, Advance Loopthrough Technology and much more, the VL is Multi-Screen Ready for seamless video walls and digital menu boards. Creating the bigger picture has never been so easy.

Smart Insert Solution

The Smart Insert Solution is a provision on the back of the display that allows a small form factor media player to be mounted discreetly. The Smart Insert enables integrators to easily service and swap signage media players without the need of replacing the complete display.


Control and manage all of the signage displays on your network with this powerful software tool which allows you to change the settings of your display centrally via an RJ45 or RS232 connection. Smart Control allows you to set the video input, modify the color settings, set the display's ID when creating video walls and even diagnose each display's status, giving you all the power you need to manage your displays from one central location.


SmartPower is an energy efficient technology which dynamically analyzes content on the screen to achieve power savings. With SmartPower the backlight intensity can be controlled and pre-set by the system to reduce the power consumption by up to 40%, lowering your operating cost and increasing your positive impact on the environment.
