Roomlinx Inc., (OTC:RMLX), a leading provider of interactive TV (iTV) applications for the hospitality industry, has completed the installation of its innovative iTV system at Hyatt Regency Denver Tech Center, a 450-room luxury hotel in the Mile High City.
The Roomlinx iTV system allows Hyatt to replace its old-fashioned pay-per-transaction Video on Demand (VOD) service with a high speed Internet integrated solution. Now guests can use Roomlinx iTV to access thousands of movies and TV programs through Netflix, Hulu, DISHOnline, Xfinity, HBO GO and other popular online sites. Guests log in to these sites using existing account information or set up new accounts as needed.
"The latest research from Nielsen and others indicates a drop-off in demand for transactional VOD and strong growth in online viewing," said Michael Wasik, Roomlinx CEO. "Our system lets hotel owners respond to these changes with in-room entertainment technology that's equal to or better than what guests have at home."
"Many Hyatt guests are already using smartphones, tablets and laptops to watch movies and TV programs," said Scott Mason, general manager, Hyatt Regency Denver Tech Center. "We are now pleased to offer the Roomlinx system, so they can view that content on a big screen with enhanced audio. This is just another way Hyatt is in touch with what travelers look for in a hotel."
In addition to providing a better way to view movies and TV programs on demand, the Roomlinx iTV system gives hotel guests convenient access to a variety of information, entertainment and business productivity options through the high-definition LCD TV. They can:
-- Take advantage of 40 HD TV channels
-- Spend time on their favorite internet sites such as Facebook, Twitter
-- Play web games or create music playlists on Pandora
-- Explore local dining, shopping, cultural and entertainment venues; make
reservations and send directions to mobile devices
-- Plug in a personal MP3 player or thumb drive
-- Edit or print documents, spreadsheets and presentations
-- Interact with hotel staff including room service, the front desk and
"We believe the Roomlinx system gives guests one more reason to choose the Hyatt Regency Denver Tech Center," said Mason. "It's a differentiating technology that will not only improve the guest experience, but will also reduce costs associated with VOD delivery and drive revenue growth for the property."
