Aloft Dublin City
10 December 2018 09:38
Aloft Dublin City is situated in The Liberties, one of the Irish capital's most historic and rapidly developing neighbourhoods. Set across 8 floors and boasting panoramic views of the Dublin mountains and the city centre, the newly designed hotel looks to cater for the next generation of travellers.
Today's guests are becoming increasingly demanding, expecting both style. comfort and cutting-edge technology. Whilst Airwave is no expert in interior design, feng shui or cushion distribution, we're certainly top of our game in the provision of guest-room and public area technology.
With this in mind, Airwave was tasked to provide a premium display technology system.
Recommending Samsung's HGEE690 Series, Airwave installed 202 x 49" into the guest-rooms (and a further 55" screen in the hotel's public area).
Airwave implemented Otrum's Enterprise interactive information system on each television; Otrum's powerful software platform delivers a premium user experience across guest-room TVs, tablets and smartphones. Using a web-based content management system, Enterprise enables the quick and efficient communication with guests via the guest-room TV. This is especially useful for the listing of local attractions, restaurant menus, special offers and local weather but provides a multitude of features, all designed to optimise the guest's experience and improve the hotel's operational efficiency.
Further enhancing the guest's bedroom experience, Airwave commissioned a hospitality-certified Chromecast system in each room, allowing guests to watch their own content (such as Netflix, Amazon Prime and catch-up services) via the in-room TV.
"Recent technology innovations have changed the way guests watch TV" said head of hospitality sales Adam Jones "scheduled terrestrial TV won't really appease guests that want to watch their own content at the push of a button."
Supporting the guest-room technology, Airwave installed a headend, an Otrum headend, an IPTV headend and a Chromecast proxy server.
PUBLIC AREA TECHNOLOGY
The Aloft requested "wow factor" display technology, Airwave duly responded, installing 8 x LG 47L35A video wall screens in two banks of two by two displays. Each 2 x 2 configuration was run by Otrum digital signage software and able to play 4k content via a raspberry pi media player, and television content via LG's STB300,
