Hotel Digital Signage and WiFi

by Simon Leach December 03, 2015

Hotel Digital Signage and WiFi

So, you own a small hotel, and things are ticking along nicely. Your occupancy rates are OK, but your value added sales (Spa, Restaurant and Bar etc) could be better. It’s a common situation that is repeated in many hotels.

What you need to do is encourage your customers to stay in house for these services. However, the question is how best to do this. You are probably already putting the menu in the rooms and may be advertising the specials in reception.

For many years, large hotels have used an internal TV channel to broadcast a Digital signage channel to every TV in the hotel. These channels are a great way to communicate your value added services such as Bars, restaurants and spas etc. They can also display paid adverts from other local businesses to provide an extra income stream.

Until now this was only really possible with expensive “Hotel” spec TVs or specialised Hotel set top boxes on every TV. However with our solution you only need 2 new boxes. A digital signage player and our ZV encoder.

Our solution will take your digital HDMI source, Encode it and distribute it using your coax TV network as a Digital TV Channel, visible on any TV attached to the coax antenna network.

And best of all, for a Boutique hotel with 10- 20 rooms the price per room per night is only 8p!

But it doesn’t stop there we also offer a solution to easily and cheaply distribute broadband around your hotel using existing cabling, and price per room per night for this is only 9p!

Our solution sends your Broadband signal along you Television Antenna cable, using the empty bandwidth. This solution is Cheaper, Faster, more secure and has higher bandwidth than wireless extenders or Powerline adapters.
