Product Description

Philips BDL4252 42" LED Full HD LFD

Open Pluggable Specification Slot

Developed for the Digital Signage market, the Open Pluggable Specification (OPS) slot is designed to make changing or upgrading your media player mere child's play. Simply plug your media player in to the display and you're ready.

No matter whether you have an entry level, mid-range or high-end media player, OPS is fully compatible bringing you a lower TCO over the longer term.

Keep your content up and running with Failover

Keeping your content up and running is critical for demanding commercial applications. While it is unlikely you will face a content disaster, Failover provides 24/7 protection with a revolutionary technology that plays back-up 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 and a Failover connection and you're ready for instant protection.

Designed for 24/7 operation

Because business never sleeps, our signage displays are designed for 24/7 use. Taking advantage of superior components to ensure a higher level of quality, you can count on this range of models for complete around-the-clock reliability.

Smart insert in the back cover to place a small PC

Professional PCs are part of most public signage installations. Quite often they increase the overall depth of the display and cause a lot of cable clutter. So we have designed this display with Smart insert in the back cover, which is ideal for the integration of a professional small form factor PC.

On top of that, the cable management system offers a great solution to keep your cables neat and professional-looking.

IR Pass-through

Control all displays in your signage network through one single remote control, via the primary display. Simple and convenient, this means you don't have to worry about other displays changing configuration settings when using your remote control unit.

Portrait mode operability

This display can also be safely and reliably mounted in portrait position

Enhanced zoom feature supports tiled matrix applications

The internal zoom function enables easy implementation of a video wall matrix, without the need for expensive external equipment. Capable of many different configurations, creating a stunning video wall has become simplicity itself.

Many Functions. One Wire

Take full control of your display by running all operational commands, as well as your video signal, through just one single HDMI cable. This unique feature makes it so much easier and more convenient to ensure the smooth running and maintenance of your display.

Consumer Electronics Control (CEC) commands make finding out vital information about your display absolute child's play.
