Philips on Most Innovative Companies list

Over the past 123 years, Philips has lit the world, brought music to the masses, and helped to revolutionize the healthcare industry, but we are still one of the freshest thinkers around.

That’s why Fast Company recognized Philips on its influential ‘50 Most Innovative Companies for 2014‘ list, as well as naming Philips in the top 10 of the Energy and Internet of Things subcategories.

“To win in such a fast-changing environment requires a new kind of business agility,” explains Fast Company editor Robert Safian. The listing was based on not only traditional markers but also "progressive, sustainable business models and an ethos of creativity".

Brazilian stadiums lit up for kick-off

Brazilian stadiums lit up for kick-off

The eyes of the world are about to focus on Brazil as the South American nation hosts one of the world’s greatest sporting events. And nine of the 12 tournament stadiums will use Philips lighting.

Eight façades, including Rio’s iconic Maracanã, will be illuminated with Philips LEDs, while five pitches have been equipped with floodlighting that simulates daylight to maximize the performance of players and officials. And the global TV audience of more than three billion will also benefit, as the lighting optimizes the experience for viewers at home, increasing the broadcasting quality of HD, 3D and super slo-mo replays.

Are you prepared?

Are you prepared?

It simply takes a little awareness and knowledge. The average person can save a life – with a basic understanding of Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) and access to an Automated External Defibrillator (AED).

That means you can make a difference for a victim of sudden cardiac arrest (SCA).

HUE

Working late? Or maybe you're out for the night. No problem. Simply turn your wireless lights on or off remotely. That way you can make it look like you're home, even when you're not.

Better still, you can set your lights to come on at a set time. Perfect if you're away on holiday but you want people to think you're still in. Or maybe just before you arrive home from work. That way you'll never come back to a dark house again.
