PPDS Chromecast Built-In Philips MediaSuite Added to IHG Hotel TVs
PPDS (aka: Philips digital signage) announced a new partnership with IHG Hotels & Resorts, bringing its Chromecast built-in Philips MediaSuite hospitality TVs.
IHG — one of the “world’s leading hospitality groups with more than 6,000 properties across 100 countries” — will begin introducing Philips MediaSuite TVs into selected hotels across all of its brands, including InterContinental Hotels & Resorts, Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants, Holiday Inn brand family, Crowne Plaza, voco and Hotel Indigo, in the coming months. PPDS is one of the global technology partners approved to serve IHG’s complete portfolio of hotels, accounting for almost one million guest rooms globally, and with a further 1,800 new properties currently in the development pipeline.
As a part of this new global partnership, Philips MediaSuite TVs, available across multiple sizes from 49”-75”, will be available for hotels to purchase.
Also, guests staying at selected IHG hotels will be able to wirelessly cast their streaming content, including movies, gaming, presentations and more, from their own smart devices at the touch of a button. Part of a long-term commitment to featuring Chromecast, extensive security protocols have also been built-in, with all guest data deleted upon a guest successfully checking out of their room.
Philips MediaSuite TVs are also designed Netflix-ready, enabling hoteliers to integrate the service directly onto the hotel room TV, giving guests instant access to the movies and shows on their own account.
