Hitachi Launches Hospitality Displays
Hitachi has announced the launch of a line of hospitality displays from 32”-65”. When combined with the Hitachi Hospitality Content Management Solution (CMS), each connected display is enabled with a centrally controlled entertainment and communications hub that delivers personalized interaction, tailor-made content and additional revenue for the hotel or hospital. The entire line can also be installed as IP-over-coax and IP-over-data solutions.
Built in a variety of finishes — including white and black color cabinets — and alternative base stand options, the 32”, 43”, 50”, 55”, 58” and 65” displays come in a vast range of designs to suit the space, decor and ambience of individual properties and chains.
With embedded Bluetooth connectivity, the displays offer a multidevice entertainment center that connects guests to all the content they would personally choose to access at home. The displays’ integrated Software Access Point (SoftAP) extends the Wireless coverage areas, enabling guests to use Miracast screen mirroring to share their favorite movies, music and photos from their smartphones, tablets and laptops straight to the TV screens.
To deliver a more expansive in-room entertainment experience, the displays’ Dual Audio Output allows the TVs’ sound to be connected to the bathroom and other parts of the room with Bluetooth speakers.
For property managers, the displays’ Cloning Mode ensures a more streamlined and convenient TV set-up process, allowing user-configured settings to be copied from the server to some or all on-site displays. All connected displays offer the possibility of a single-source property management system with 3rd party software, or the Hitachi Hospitality Content Management Solution (CMS). Simplifying management and maintenance for properties of all sizes, the Hitachi CMS enables managers to have visibility of and control over all in-room screens from a single central location. For simplified content creation, this solution also provides a fully customizable Guest User Interface (GUI).
When integrated with a property management system (PMS), the Hitachi CMS supports a centralized, two-way communications platform through which properties can extend and build on their front desk capabilities with an interactive digital concierge service. This integration can also facilitate a more convenient check-out process, allowing guests to review and securely settle their bills through their in-room displays.
