Our IPTV system turns every TV into a hotel’s SmartTV, personalized to the individual needs of a hotel. Using this interactive system, the hotel provides the guests with over 100 TV channels, over 1000 movies from their own video store, the use of Internet (e-mail, news, social networks), games, alarm clocks and other hotel applications.
We have designed and produced a unique and compact – both software and hardware solution. This small sized device is packed into a high-quality aluminum housing. Being whisper-quiet in operation, the device is unnoticeably placed on the back of the TV. A powerful processor and a fluid interface provide the guests with a unique experience while using this service.
In the interactive TV system, we have enabled a simple content update that directs the guests to the local or the hotel’s special offers from the following categories: food and beverages, travel, recreation, transport, entertainment, cultural event and similar.
The aim of this type of communication with the guests is to amaze and please them – and gain trust. This approach leaves an impact on the guests and makes them want to visit again. The hotel selects the content on itsown, negotiates on the advertising price and, in a simple interface, incorporates the special offers for the guests to see them in the interactive TV apps.
Having in mind the quality before the quantity of the content, not only do you leave your guests satisfied but, consequently, you increase the hotel’s income by collecting payment from the ads.
Lapis Hotel Box can be connected to any TV through an HDMI or an analog signal. It enables an advanced Hotel Mode to every TV – it turns on/off, sets volume and disables the guests to change the TV settings.
We have enabled the TV interface customization by changing the design to meet the needs of the hotel. With this approach, we have provided an option for every TV to be unique. By changing the themes, colors and inserting background images, every TV can be unnoticeably blended in with its surroundings.
In order to customize the interface, a simple integration with the reservation system is possible. In this way, we have enabled an individual approach to the guests. Available options are: creating a welcome message, invoice overview application, fast checkout, minibar registering, adjusting the language, TV channels etc. according to the hotel's needs.
There is no more need for any other remote controller in the room but for the Lapis Remote. We have developed a BLE (Bluetooth Low Energy) remote controller with a gyroscope, accelerometer and instant response. With our minimalist design, we have ensured an intuitive handling with all TV functions.
We have designed a universal, unnoticeable, low-profile cantilever that hides the Lapis Hotel Box and the existing installations making the space behind the TV look neater and safer for the guests.
This is suitable for an existing facility with no infrastructure. In case of no existing network installation, a wireless connection is available for the Lapis Hotel Box.
We use only one server for the signal reception, video store, middleware, wireless server and the telephone exchange.
We have developed an interactive web interface that enables the administrator to manage the server intuitively. The TV content configuration is fast and simple as is the access to the usage statistics.
There is a simple management system for channels and movies payment with a possibility of making some extra income.
Satellite and terrestrial signal reception is performed using the standard equipment. We provide more than a 100 TV channels available 24/7 on every hotel TV, with no additional costs towards the national operator.
