Eight in ten adults in the UK (40 million people) use subscription services such as Netflix or catch-up technology like BBC iPlayer or ITV Hub. Guests away from home environment amenities and looking for ways to pass time, crave a“home-from-home” experience. Naturally, a home-from-home television system is a top priority.
No longer will a large-screen TV and a scheduled line-up of terrestrial channels impress; guests expect to choose their own content and watch it when they want.
Step forward hospitality casting solutions, enabling a guest to watch their own content on a guest-room TV.
Without hospitality dedicated security features, guests can steal the device and/or interfere with and access casting devices in surrounding rooms, causing confusion and risking the casting of malicious/inappropriate content.
As no two situations are identical, it's important that the "right" system is recommended. Although each solution is fundamentally similar in nature, certain requirements might make one system more suitable than another: good examples being size of the hotel and nature of existing technology infrastructure.
