On Command debuts new software

On Command Video Corporation is debuting its new CANVAS 2 software at HITEC 2006.

CANVAS 2 is another first for the hotel from On Command. On Command’s history of developing easy to use guest interfaces has kept the company in the forefront of providing applications services for hotels to enhance their guest’s in-room experience.

“We have reached the pinnacle of enabling hotels to totally differentiate themselves with the television interface,” said Tad Walden, senior vice president of marketing and programming for On Command. “Everything from fonts to graphics to video elements to the specific navigation protocols can now be customized to the liking of the hotel brand. It’s no longer a semi-customized world that only enables the hotel to change a logo or a few colors or graphic elements.”

CANVAS 2 has several new benefits, including its high resolution 16 x 9 widescreen format and ability to present hotel proprietary content in high definition format. Installations of the software begin in July with full distribution to On Command’s digitally served base by fall.
