Tangerine Global, a leader in delivering premium high-definition television (HDTV) programming to the global hospitality marketplace, introduced several new products during this year’s HITEC.

Five products launched and demonstrated at this year’s conference will expand the already vast array of superior quality programming innovations that Tangerine Global makes available to the hospitality sector. Reaching guests in-room and in common areas, via integrated systems at international luxury destinations such as the Mandarin Orient and Peninsula Hotels, Tangerine Global introduced:

  • Video Internet Protocol Television (ViP-TV) – For the first time ever, this brand-new and innovative solution from Tangerine Global and EchoStar Satellite Services, Inc. is the first Ku-band satellite solution delivering both HD and SD designed for IPTV. Ku-band enables the use of smaller satellite antennas, offering a dramatically smaller footprint than alternate systems and an increasingly more cost-effective, future-proof solution to their content needs. 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. Whether your guest is seeking drama, comedy, action or suspense, hundreds of titles straight off the silver screen and featuring A-list talent, are available now in brilliant HD and full wide screen.
  • 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 and 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 guestrooms.
