Hospitality in-room entertainment is changing
Hotels are reporting a decline in use of expensive VOD services but an increase in Internet usage. More and more guests are travelling with their own portable devices holding their rich-media content, like movies, games and music.
The Apple TV is small in size but big on entertainment, adding an extra dimension to regular TV viewing. Giving guests access to their personal iTunes Store media including movies, TV shows (where available), photos and music libraries. Access to the content they carry in iPhones, iPods and iPads. Even iTunes content stored on Windows machines. Plus with over 2 million users, many guests will already be familiar with the numerous features Apple TV offers.
Customisation and Hotel Information
The system can be customised to include your branding and images associated with the hotel. Additionally, you can integrate information about hotel services, including room service menus, the spa brochure, restaurant menus, shopping catalogues, local maps and city guides.
Our powerful, yet easy to use PC, Phone or Tablet management system allows Front Desk, Housekeeping or Engineering to use any web-enabled PC to enable / disable the system to act as an additional revenue stream, clear down all guest information with one click and even quickly and clearly see if a unit is offline.
Make use of the proven reliability and ever-expanding channel line up and interactive features of either Freeview GD or FreeSat HD (compatible TV tuner required). Simply switch between the Apple TV's menu and Freeview TV at the touch of a button on the bespoke remote control.
Instant access to the hottest Hollywood titles and new releases, using your iTunes account details. Search by top films, title or genre. The intuitive user interface allows you to read a short film review and watch a trailer before making your decision. Once you've chosen, simply press play and in seconds you're watching the opening credits. Alternatively if you have a Netflix account (US only) you can login easily and select from their library.

AirPlay: Integration with your guests' technology²
