The ViP-TV solution delivers it’s programming already encapsulated in IP for distribution over converged IP networks.
  • Hollywood Feature Films in HD and Full Widescreen – Direct from Hollywood! Tangerine Global is pleased to offer current hot feature films and fan favorites from all genres.

  • HD World – Is a universe containing a robust 1,000 plus HD titles, available in SVOD, PPV, PPDay and PPStay configurations. Titles are available in dozens of genre and language options, including Chinese (Mandarin & Cantonese), Korean, Thai, Japanese, Hindi, Farsi, Arabic, German, French, Italian, Spanish, and Dutch; on channels ranging from IMAX films, Planet Earth to NFL, Golf, Kids and Family. Packages include delivery, encoding, metadata and refresh with consultative package options.
  • Video Music On Demand (VMOD) – A free-to-guest amenity, the VMOD product offers music from world-class artists in crystal clear, full HD; seamlessly integrated for a unique non-interruptive listening experience. Package includes delivery, encoding, metadata and refresh.
  • Public Space Ambient Music – Provides licensed public space background music and soundscapes designed specifically for unique property locations such as Spa, Bar, Lobby, Restaurants and Pool settings. Available in U.S. and select Global markets.

These products are the latest offerings in a new revolution shifting the hospitality industry to URL-based delivery systems, often easing the work of administrators and always supplying hotel guests with the latest in high definition programming that they’ve come to expect during their stays. Transforming the traditional in-house television screen into a multiuse display showcase, guests are able to enjoy the finest HD entertainment content, news and local information, access the Internet and e-mail, manage their hotel account and services, and even add ambient elements to their guest rooms.
