Deliver a wide array of content to guests with an enhanced Home Menu that does not require the additional purchase of a solution or installation of a network infrastructure. New enhanced features enable hotels to welcome guests with a brief video introduction along with the hotel logo before offering live TV. This way, hotels can enhance their brand without the need of an additional solution. Guests can conveniently view resources such as the time, date and hotel information, and access frequently used TV features in user mode. The customisable Home Menu reduces the cost burden for hotels that lack the budget for an additional solution while simplifying Home Menu creation with a solution-embedded Hospitality TV.
Protect content with advanced DRM technology
Samsung LYNK DRM technology provides a safe and cost-effective alternative to traditional hardware-based content protection systems. The solution allows encrypted live channel and VoD content to pass securely and display on hotel TVs. A software-only implementation, LYNK DRM technology reduces the need for additional equipment and provides quicker recovery for Conditional Access System (CAS) problems. To help ensure system reliability, coverage extends to the enlargement of head-end equipment for cable operators.
Enjoy More Efficient Installation through Improved Plug-and-Play Capabilities
In a busy hospitality environment, time spent on display installation and maintenance is time that could otherwise be devoted to more critical growth-related activities. Through advanced plug-and-play settings, hotel managers can activate hundreds of in-room displays with minimal effort required. Operations teams simply have to navigate three basic launch settings to synchronise multiple displays and servers while also defining connectivity and language needs: • Basic Setup: A user-friendly interface lets hospitality managers define the language, picture and tuning, and clock settings. • Cloning Mode: To further enhance multi-display control, hotel managers can replicate communication and content delivery functionalities across all on-site displays. Once the cloning process is complete, users can activate their displays without requiring any further installations or compatibility confirmation. • Factory Mode: Hotel managers additionally can customise advanced display operations, such as audio parameters and connectivity settings, through an easy-to-access factory mode portal. The plug-and-play functionalities also enable certain non-hospitality environments to enjoy the same content and system management benefits. A unique Commercial Mode setting accommodates the specialised requirements of commercial users, such as government and education entities, without compromising performance.
Maintain High-Performing Connectivity through an Ethernet Bridge
As guests request access to a range of web-based services during their stay, the HE69X display empowers both hotels and customers to achieve fully-functional connectivity with less hassle required. The HE69X’s design includes Ethernet bridge connectivity that is compatible with IP devices. As a result, guests can establish a VoIP phone access point or connect their computer to the Ethernet cable for continuous content access as part of a multi-functional business work station. In addition, guests can access online TV streaming platforms as they would at home to ensure they don’t miss their favorite programs while on the road. At the same time, the powerful integrated Ethernet connection prevents hotels from having to implement separate routers and LAN cables to guarantee full performance. Through this versatile Ethernet bridge feature, hotels can overcome potentially weak Wi-Fi networks and deliver more options for guests to enjoy clear, rapidly available content.
