Sparks, NV (July 12, 2017) -- TeleAdapt Inc., the global leader in connectivity solutions for the hospitality industry, announced a strategic partnership with Samsung Electronics America, Inc. The companies will partner to provide hotels with a state of the art in-room entertainment solution. Through the integration of Samsung’s LYNK™ REACH 4.0, a superior content management system, and TeleAdapt’s Roomcast™, a media streaming platform powered by Google Chromecast, guests will be given a seamless user experience; combining REACH 4.0 content with simplified mobile device streaming.
Roomcast by TeleAdapt
Roomcast is a true over-the-top streaming solution that is simply added to your existing guestroom TV system. There's no head-end equipment, server or software to install. Simply connect Roomcast to the hotel network and to the TV. There are no contracts or content fees.
“Streaming whenever, wherever, is how today’s guests watch, and listen to their favorite content” says Neil Betterton, VP Global Product Development at TeleAdapt, “Guests are streaming in hotels every day, but getting that stream onto the big screen in the guest-room is another trick. We believe Chromecast provides the simplest guest experience by far”. Because Roomcast is powered by Chromecast, guests can open any of their Chromecast cast-enabled apps, tap the Cast icon, and watch their favorite entertainment on the in-room TV. Everything is controlled from the guest's own phone, tablet or laptop using the apps they already know and love. This is much simpler than native apps on the TV where guests must enter username and passwords through cumbersome on-screen keyboards.
Roomcast is an open platform solution built on robust hardware that supports an evolving software roadmap. About Roomcast’s future Betterton says “With the release of our API’s later this year, what Roomcast can deliver and how it can be managed will surprise a lot of people.”
content management system,
REACH 4.0 is a fully integrated system that allows hotel managers to have complete visibility and control over all the in-room TV’s through a centralized server. This all-in-one hub makes it easy to display personalized content, applications, and channel access. Guests can also access information on billing, weather, local restaurants and bars, upcoming events, and more. Additionally, hoteliers can instantly communicate with guests through the in-room TV, and deliver real time messages that make experiences more authentic and impactful. The system is compatible with any new or existing hospitality communication infrastructure - including coax, LAN, and Wi-Fi (granted you have a Samsung Hospitality TV) - to drive faster, cheaper, and easier implementation. REACH 4.0 also allows hotels to customize the display with their own digital signage, helping to reinforce their brand.
Founded in 1992 by current CEO Gordon Brown, TeleAdapt has over 25 years of experience in the design, manufacture and supply of connectivity products to the hospitality industry. From their initial focus towards supporting business travelers struggling with dial-up modem connections, TeleAdapt has evolved with changing technology by expanding their product offerings to include USB charging, Bluetooth, guest’s connections to the TV, and now in-room streaming. Their power, internet, and multi-media products can be found in over 4 million rooms worldwide. This partnership with Samsung is the latest TeleAdapt initiative aimed at providing guests with the best in-room technology products.
