Philips Signage SoC Monitors

Updated August 2021

Philips have a broad range of signage solutions, many of which are compatible with the Xibo for Android Player. To help those looking for a System on Chip (SoC) solution on Android we have listed the models that meet the requirements for Xibo.

Please note: The links provided are from the Philips Signage’s official website and should be used for information purposes only. Some of the listed models may only be available in selected countries. Please contact Philips for more information on the options available in your region.

We would recommend thoroughly testing the Xibo player on your chosen display before proceeding to deploy to a production environment.

Android Version 4

Please note that LetsEncrypt (a popular provider of SSL certificates) have new root certification, which isn’t included in the Android 4 models. For this reason, these models are supported for older releases, but would not be recommended for new deployments.
