A hotel TV is a key focal point and guests’ interaction with that screen will impact heavily on their perception of their stay. Content is of paramount importance and prescribed, scheduled programmes will no longer suffice. Guests are used to having access to catch-up and subscription channels and will expect a home from home experience.
The hotel industry wants to offer a SMART yet secure experience. With hotel guests carrying a plethora of personal devices with them, connectivity is the way forward when it comes to delivering upon expectations. There are many options available for casting and streaming content but it is important to implement a hotel specific solution to ensure that the security of guests’ details is not compromised.
Forbes Professional offers simple, one-touch access solutions for casting and streaming content from personal devices to the in-room TV without compromising the security of guests’ details and passwords.
