Quadriga’s Personal Media Network™ technology wins best new technology award at Equip Paris show
With PMN, guests can access content subscriptions and use their own mobile device to act as a gateway and shift the content directly to the in-room television for play. Guests can also bring their own content sources to their room via their mobile device and shift the content to the television for play. Everything from videos, movies, music and photos, as well as content from social networks like Facebook and Google+ can now be viewed anywhere throughout the hotel WiFi environment on any device. An Interactive Program Guide anchors the PMN free-to-guest television programming, and resides on the pad and phone as well as the television. Guests have the ability to scan FTG programming options and watch programming on their mobile device anywhere in the hotel WiFi area. Movies on the STB system, if licensed, can be purchased and played out on the mobile device anywhere in the hotel WiFi environment. Guests can access third-party subscription services and shift their content selection to the in-room television with their mobile device, once it is paired to the television system and WiFi network.
The PMN application is a complete network solution that integrates hotel services with the guest's entertainment and content sources. Once paired with the in-room television, the guest's mobile device can be used to access and complete transactions for hotel services like room service, meetings and events, concierge services, spa services, travel updates and transportation services. This provides hotels with tremendous opportunity to increase revenue from their food and beverage and concierge services, as well as facilitate meetings and event communication.
According to Quadriga's CEO, Roger Taylor, "With more than 1,500 exhibitors, Equip' Hotel is a leading event for the hospitality industry, known for showcasing the latest trends and innovations. We are delighted that our new Personal Media Network product has received this award and recognition by the event and the industry and we look forward to demonstrating it to visitors to our booth this week in Paris."
PMN is based on flexible building blocks, which already exist in Quadriga's Sensiq TV platform and its Qvalet mobile platform, providing an established, scalable platform for hotels. The solution provides a breadth of content choice that allows guests to manage their stay and be entertained through the device of their choice anytime, anywhere.
Quadriga's Roger Taylor continues, "We are delighted to be working with cutting edge hoteliers to bring new services that can create true differentiation in the marketplace to the industry. The expansion of the mobile market and portable content presents us with the opportunity to help hoteliers resolve the challenge of meeting the increased demands placed on their HSIA and WiFi networks while providing guests with the services they are demanding. Quadriga is uniquely qualified to meet that challenge."
