Philips announced that it has been named as a global supplier of in-room entertainment televisions to the Accor Group of hotels.

The Accor Group is a leading European hotel chain and one of the largest in the world, with a portfolio that includes Sofitel, Novotel, Mercure, Ibis, RedRoof, Formule 1 and Etap.  Philips is now poised to provide the group's hotels with its dedicated range of Hotel Flat TVs, in up to 480,000 rooms.

Philips Consumer Electronics has been a market leader in the hotel TV industry for over 15 years, working closely with systems integrators to deliver customised solutions to the hospitality market. Using technology from Philips Consumer Electronics Business Display Solutions Group, Philips Hotel Flat TVs are equipped with dedicated TV features allowing hotel owners to concentrate on running the hotel whilst providing an outstanding in-room audiovisual experience to their guests.

The new Philips Hotel Flat TV range, which will be supplied to Accor Group world-wide, delivers a compelling total cost of ownership proposition, with effortless installation, easy integration and outstanding compatibility with existing in-room entertainment systems.  The range also has convenient customisable features such as volume limitation control, menu locking, built in alarm clock and a bathroom speaker connector. One unique feature is SmartLoader which provides the ability to copy all programming settings from one TV to another in less then a minute.  The TVs provide a great viewing experience with sharp pictures and high quality surround sound, meeting the increasing demand for cutting edge in-room entertainment systems.

"Philips is a global supplier which understands the hospitality market, and offers a full product range as well as a dedicated team for logistics, sales and services, which is a must for serving the hospitality market", said Joel Vatan, Chief Procurement Officer Accor Group.
