The specialist provider of Apple technology products to the hospitality industry is set to showcase its definitive Apple IPTV solution to attendees of Hotel & Spa Tech Live, as it demonstrates the latest development of its Apple TV platform.
Through RoomNetTV’s new offering, hotel guests can now watch live IPTV services using a hotel’s existing infrastructure directly onto AppleTV 4 and Apple TV 4K. Furthermore, this solution provides the first 4K HDR capable guest room entertainment solution, says the company.
Hotel guests can login to the Apple TV with their own accounts for iTunes, Netflix, Amazon, YouTube, Hulu to watch their favourite TV shows or movies, safe in the knowledge that when they check-out all their login credentials are removed from the Apple TV. This has been made possible by the introduction of Mobile Device Management (MDM) for Apple TV, which RoomNetTV has successfully integrated with the hotels PMS system.
On top of this, hoteliers can also utilise the Guest Services application via Apple TV to facilitate guest access to in-room dining, hotel information, lighting controls and more, all of which can be tailored to individual hotels.
RoomNetTV, Apple experts in hospitality, will be exhibiting on stand 4614 at Hotel & Spa Tech Live, which takes place at London’s Excel, September 25-26, where its team will be on hand to talk through the benefits of their innovative new offering.
In addition, RoomNetTV’s CEO, Darren King, will be part of a panel session at the show, where he’ll be discussing how hoteliers can go about leveraging Guestroom Technology to enhance the Customer Experience.
Darren says of the firm’s IPTV solution, “In 2012 we introduced hotels to guest room streaming using Apple TV, enabling guests to watch their content wirelessly on the hotel TV via Airplay. Our latest ‘industry first’ offers AppleTV4 in its native form, allowing guests to use it as they do at home. Couple the huge Apple App/Content ecosystem with our ‘Live TV’ App for watching the hotels IPTV channels, and we believe we provide the most comprehensive guest room entertainment solution available anywhere in the world.”
Through RoomNetTV, guests can also access their Apple DRM protected content, play their gaming apps, surf the internet, and more, directly via their guestroom TV without risk of their personal content being available to other hotel guests.
Darren adds, “Our philosophy is centred on offering a truly unique home-away-from-home hotel experience that enables guests to watch what they want, when they want. Access to personalised content enhances a guest’s stay, providing a more enjoyable experience.
“In room entertainment services play a huge part in guests’ perception of a hotel – by providing such a diversity of choice, hotels will only serve to enhance their image in the eyes of their guests.”
