PPDS, a provider of Philips digital signage, interactive displays, direct view LED and professional TVs, has been selected to install 1,900 of its UHD Philips D-Line digital signage displays to the Tenstar Simulation training facility in Sweden, which will bring advanced and highly immersive simulation experiences to the facility.

Tenstar Simulation is a training facility for the transportation, emergency vehicles, construction, agriculture, forestry, and traffic segments. It was developed to prepare students, novices and professionals to safely operate heavy machinery in simulated settings with true-to-life dynamics, including hardware (seats, armrests, controls) from manufacturers in the industry.

With 700 available simulators, Tenstar Simulation needed a high-quality, cost-effective display solution to create truly immersive experiences for its customers. To bring their vision to life, Tenstar Simulation teamed up with PPDS for a custom solution. Together, 1,900 Philips D-Line displays were installed to create an immersive simulation experience for each user.

With a combined average of 160,000 hours of on-screen time each year, these displays were chosen for their robustness and energy efficiency, as well as their full HD resolution. The displays are connected directly to each simulator, allowing the Tenstar Simulation team to update their software and monitor performance via their custom software suite. Modular display configuration enables versatility for each machine—ensuring each experience perfectly represents the machine training scenario.

This installation resulted in a significant increase of positive feedback from users, while also helping reduce environmental emissions and safety risks for people and machines.
