Having installed a guestroom entertainment system into the Residence Inn Aberdeen, Airwave was delighted to once again work with the Residence brand.
Kicking off proceedings, Airwave designed and built reception infrastructure from roof to floor, including an EasyStream IPTV headend and two satellite dishes.
The TV system was fronted by LG US662H series hospitality TVs, with 230 x 55-inch, 30 x 50-inch and 1 x 43-inch display installed in the hotel's bedrooms and suites. The bedroom displays were flat to wall mounted, with the suite TVs double arm mounted to offer swivel flexibility in the spacious suites.
An Otrum Enterprise guest entertainment platform was implemented on each TV, this was designed to adhere to Marriott brand standards, and features EPG, a curated channel list, radio services, hotel information pages, a dynamic weather feed and commercially certified Google Chromecast.
Airtime's cloud-based VOD service was also implemented, providing premium early-release movie content.
