Installers can now use Exterity AvediaServer 7.3 with Philips MediaSuite SmartTVs when working on a hospitality integration, the two companies have announced.

Using Exterity, hotels and leisure centres will be able to supply an unlimited number of high-definition channels to any number of guest rooms or hotel screens.

Exterity IP video solutions are already interoperable with hotel management systems, meaning there is scope for installers to offer interactive services via the TV screen.

Through this partnership it is now entirely possible for hotels to provide access to reservations, booking tickets or guest billing via its TV screens. There could even be more revenue making opportunities using on-screen promotions that are tailored to the type of clientele the hotel receives.

The hotel network is used to deliver all the expected guest services as standard and users can create bespoke services and customisable interfaces with the Artio portal middleware.

The Philips MediaSuite hospitality TVs already offers a number of advanced hotel features like SmartInfo for interactive hotel information pages and SmartInstall for remote installations.

By using these features, leisure organisations can promote services such as spas, restaurants, room service and more at no costs, while Smart TV Apps turn the display into an information hub for travellers.

“Connectivity plays a significant role in enabling hoteliers to compete with new services as travellers now expect the most advanced technology while they relax in luxurious hotel rooms and lobbies,” says Colin Farquhar, CEO at Exterity.

“The integration of our AvediaServer with Philips MediaSuite increases the tailoring capabilities of Philips’ Hospitality TVs to create a highly personal experience for guests, including the latest video entertainment available on the hotel VoD portal.

“Delivery of any type of content combined with advanced features that can be accessed via the TV screen provides guests with unseen levels of comfort, and we’re proud that our solutions now support the leading displays on the market.”

Franck Racape, head of global sales at Philips, adds: “At Philips, our objective is to provide the best in-room display technology in order to improve the guest experience and create a better environment for the Hotelier to promote his products and services.

“Our strategy has always been to partner with companies that deliver added value to the user on top of our services, resulting in greater flexibility and enhanced performance. As such, the integration with the Exterity platform will further develop in-room interactive technology by promoting advanced hotel features.”

The integration of Philips MediaSuite with AvediaServer 7.3 will be demonstrated on the Exterity stand #11-E68 at ISE 2016.
