LUX Hospitality Awards 2016 34 LUX - Hospitality Awards 2016 Best Hotel Entertainment & Wi-Fi Solutions Company understands its customers exceptionally well and continually looks for new ways to enrich the guest experience. “With Apple TV and our cloud-based Dynamic VLAN service, guests can stream their own content safely in their guest room on a private area network, resulting in a highly personalised in-room entertainment experience,” he reveals. Other solutions from RoomNetTV which are also being adopted by CitizenM include RoomNetTV’s tailored Business Centre Kiosk software, which enables each guest to be greeted with hotel branded login screens and a user-focused design that keeps personal data safe and secure. Working collaboratively with hotel operators, RoomNetTV is able to design, implement and support the introduction of innovative network infrastructure, WiFi, Cloud based SMART TV and Apple TV technology – ensuring a state-of-the-art RoomNetTV solution that fully integrates with existing hotel systems. Recognizing the ever-increasing demand for innovative in-room services, RoomNetTV provides a wireless and private environment for hotel guests to easily stream personal content to the guestroom TV in HD quality. Through RoomNetTV, guests can access their Apple DRM protected content, mirror their gaming apps, surf the internet, and more – directly to their guestroom TV, without the concern of content being available to other hotel guests. By using the ‘two touch’ Airplay functionality on iPhone, iPad and Android devices, guests can connect their own content and conveniently view it via the in-room TV, just as they would at home. As RoomNetTV CEO Darren King explains, modern technology has changed the way people absorb media and savvy hotel guests expect to be able to “bring their own content” when travelling. “Our TV viewing style has changed dramatically and the traditional Video On Demand service in hotels has become obsolete; it’s too expensive for Best Hotel Entertainment & Wi-Fi Solutions Company hotels to deliver and for guests to buy. There is also an explosion of internet services and we now have access to a plethora of online channels, apps and streaming services. “It won’t be long until conventional TV delivery vanishes for good, and hotels need to prepare to deliver the bandwidth and technology that guests will require in order to connect and use their own, often multiple, devices,” he asserts. Sophisticated hoteliers are already investing in such technology, reveals King, citing RoomNetTV’s recent partnership with trendy boutique hotel brand, CitizenM. RoomNetTV’s Dynamic VLAN on demand service with Apple TV has been rolled out across all of CitizenM’s nine hotels in Amsterdam, Rotterdam, Paris, Glasgow, London, New York and Paris. “We are incredibly excited to be working with one of the most innovative and forward-thinking hotel companies in the industry,” says King. “CitizenM RoomNetTV, the Apple expert in hospitality, is a leading provider of hotel guest room entertainment and WiFi solutions – created by combining Apple TV infrastructure with RoomNetTV’s own advanced cloud based technology solutions.
