True beauty lies within
It’s all about the experience. Whether in the lobby or the lift, the bar or the spa. In the hotel room, guests expect even more. Last year’s trends for home-from-home comforts continue to dominate, while sleek style and smarter technology that can personalise experiences are swiftly becoming essential factors that the right hotel TV can deliver – efficiently, effectively and extensibly.
As the world continues to open out to both leisure guests and business travellers, adapting the hotel room to fit their differing needs doesn’t need to be time consuming or cost prohibitive. The right connections are key, giving easy and intuitive access to individualised activity information, personal streaming services and favourite apps for guests’ downtime, while also offering the possibility for casting presentations and documents for work, all onto the big screen.
For hoteliers looking for the competitive edge, easy integration and efficient personalisation are key factors, while reduced cost of ownership and sustainability impact continue to rise in importance.
When it comes to fulfilling those requirements – from guest expectations through to return on investment, Philips MediaSuite has it covered.
Keeping it all within – the power of Android TV with Chromecast built-in
Google-certified and with Chromecast built-in, with Philips MediaSuite guests can easily connect to the apps they want to use – whether that’s for their subscription services such as YouTube, Spotify and Disney+ or to stream their own content – all in up to Ultra HD 4K resolution.
It also offers full access to the Google Play store, allowing guests to download Google-approved content, including more than 10,000 cast-enabled Android apps, 200,000 TV programmes and films and 30,000,000 music tracks.
For hoteliers, Philips MediaSuite brings all the benefits of casting, while delivering on integration efficiency, with no need for additional dongles and peripherals that may be costly, unsightly, and easy to tamper with.
Streaming the bigger picture, including Netflix-embedded
Netflix is enjoyed globally by over 220 million paid subscribers and, uniquely to this range, Philips MediaSuite hospitality TVs offer the option to have this popular streaming platform as an seamlessly embedded feature. Embedding Netflix is easy to install with a Hotel PMS – and it’s truly secure, with any trace of the guest’s information being wiped from the TV at checkout.
And providing access to guests’ own streaming channels brings the potential for further cost efficiencies for hoteliers, too. On Philips MediaSuite TVs, where Netflix and Chromecast are offered as standard, viewing of linear channels drops by approximately 50 percent, bringing the opportunity to lose expensive licences to some, often unused, linear services.
Bringing in guest returns with reduced cost of ownership
Promising an extended lifetime and reduced cost of ownership doesn’t come with a catch. Powered by Android, the software on the Philips MediaSuite can be easy updated whenever a new release is available. Which means that the power of the latest model is available on your existing fleet to deliver the latest features and functionality without the need to replace the hardware. And with some of the best energy ratings on the market, they are less costly for the environment and a more sustainable choice for the bottom line, too.
The Philips MediaSuite range is available in a wide selection of sizes, from 32” to 75” models, including Full HD and 4K Ultra HD options.
