Hospitality TVs offer a unique Home Menu or Home Graphic User Interface which allows the institutions to create or add a welcome message, a logo and/or a video on the TV boot-up screen. The range is ideal for creating, editing, real time update of weather, along with software and firmware updating over RF or IP Network.
The TV interface also has customisable shortcuts for accessing major functions of TV (Menu, alarm, source etc.). Customers can also map the specific remote control to a specific TV to avoid misplacement of remote controls.
The hoteliers, for example can make use of the user friendly ‘Home Menu’ which acts as an information menu, and allows them to save utility numbers such as that of Reception, Housekeeping, Room Service, Travel Desk, Emergency, etc. on the Hotel TV itself. This information is accessible at the touch of a button via remote.
One of the noteworthy features includes the muting option or access to bedside headphone to watch the TV and avoid disturbing the others in a room with dual occupancy – something that can benefit hostels and hospitals.
