Hotel Internet Services releases new software enhancements of BeyondTV

Hotel Internet Services proudly announces the latest release of its market leading IPTV based hospitality entertainment system – BeyondTV™. With a new innovative Stealth Storage Technology, BeyondTV™ now provides the ability to pause Live TV with full trick-play (Fast-forward and Rewind) capabilities while operating silently.

This latest release also allows guests to preview a channel while watching another channel (Picture in Picture). As part of the many new enhancements, BeyondTV™ now offers a complete set of on-screen interactive services (like housekeeping, in-room dining, valet and taxi service, hotel staff-to-guest messaging, advertising, etc.) which all can be customised and controlled by the hotel staff.

Peter Broughton, director of IT at the 1720 Room Silver Legacy Resort Casino states: “BeyondTV™ is truly an amazing product! Our guests love the interaction with the system and are very happy that we have more than just a movie system.  Our guests can do so much more now such as watch HDTV, check out via the TV, order room service, browse the web, check local area entertainment and special offers, and much more! We also like the fact that we have various ways to communicate with our guests through the TV as well as conduct advertising and marketing campaigns through the BeyondTV™ system. This system conforms to the HTNG standards and also contributes to our Green Initiative by digitising our previous print-based portfolio. Not only do we save an enormous amount on printing costs, we can easily update and edit the content at any time.”

BeyondTV™ provides a large selection of the latest Hollywood HD movies as well as bundled movie packages with hundreds of movies to choose from.  The system allows users to browse the web providing access to email and in-room messaging. International travelers will have the ability to switch languages on-the-fly, making the system more user-friendly and easier to navigate.

Lastly, property staff now has the ability to edit their own content, receive revenues from integrated advertising, and provide guests with Express Checkout, Weather, Ordering of Meals, Guest Messaging, and more.
