TRIAX launches IPTV hospitality solutions
July 3, 2015
TRIAX (www.triax.com) – a global supplier of innovative, high-tech solutions for the reception and distribution of video, audio and data signals – has unveiled a range of exciting IPTV hospitality solutions designed to help hotels increase revenues, identify savings and improve the guest in-room experience. Specially developed to bring a new level of control and flexibility to TV distribution, this advanced system comprises hardware and middleware that can be customised to suit individual requirements.
TRIAX hospitality solution enables hotel owners to further enhance the guest experience and develop new revenue streams. TRIAX cost effective, secure and flexible Hospitality solution allows the distribution of TV, radio, video, information channels and web content throughout the hotel. Content is distributed directly to in-room and is aimed at better meeting guests’ entertainment and service needs.
“Taking in middleware in our assortment, is a natural extension of our services”, says Uffe Hansen, CCO at TRIAX. “We are very strong in reliable headend solutions and with the middleware solution on top, our customers have a system that is proven to work and is easy to install.”
TRIAX hospitality solution can operate in both existing coax cable and pure IP network infrastructure to deliver high quality HD content to all guests. It comprises the latest TDX or TDH800 headends with conditional access system (CAS) for secure pay TV channel options and middleware. The TRIAX hospitality solution is providing the small or middle size installers with a one-stop-shop for generating new revenue streams to smaller hotel or hotel chains.
TRIAX IP pool technology has revolutionized the setting up and configuration of headends. All input signals, regardless of whether they are received via satellite, terrestrial, cable, audio/video or via the internet, are independently distributed from an IP pool to each individual module. Each of these input signals can be converted to any output signal: PAL, QAM, COFDM and IP and as the input signals are not fixed to any particular outputs, an input signal can be assigned to several output signals.
The flexibility in the hospitality system means that the hotel owner can use the same system even if he over time switches from a COAX network to IP network. The ease of installation and setting up for the installers makes it an optimum and future-proof solution.
TRIAX middleware is the central software that defines the graphical user interface (GUI) on the TV. It provides access for end users to view available TV channels and services, such as weather reports, bill overview and guest information. It also offers hotel owners valuable customised services supporting the opportunity to generate additional revenue. A number of pre-defined packages are available, ranging from simple solutions for small hotels, to advanced solutions for larger hotels and housing associations. TRIAX middleware can be delivered as an on-site or cloud based solution.
A TRIAX hospitality solution is characterised by its modularity and flexibility. Both hotel owners and installers will benefit from the system by having a system that is reliable, easy to-use and easy-to-install. Above all, a system that is easy adaptable to future demands for TV-reception and distribution.
