TeleAdapt’s mission to keep hotel guests connected entered a new generation last week as the company officially announced that its new MediaHub HD is now available for purchase, in mass production and fulfilling orders.

Plus, the MediaHub HD Stereo Bluetooth function is fully compatible with the recently released Apple iPhone OS 3.0 for wireless audio streaming.

MediaHub HD is the answer to personalized in-room entertainment. The new entertainment panel gives hotel guests the ability to experience their music, photos, videos and other multimedia content from their own personal portable electronics devices through the hotel room’s flat-screen HDTV. MediaHub entertainment panels moves that content from their smartphones and laptops to the big screen.

With stereo Bluetooth technology, hotel guests can wirelessly stream audio from an iPhone, iPod Touch or other A2DP-enabled smartphones and computers such as the Palm Pre or Nokia N97, through the in-room TV speakers or stereo without leaving the device tied to the connectivity panel, a first in in-room technology.

“The demand over the past year has been intense and now the wait is over,” said Gordon Brown, CEO of TeleAdapt. “We are fulfilling orders for the MediaHub HD to hotels all over the world who want to bring their hotel rooms to life with cutting-edge in-room entertainment technology.”

Currently, there are no other options available for hotels as simple as MediaHub HD for wireless connectivity. “Media connectivity used to be plug and play. Now it’s just play,” said Brown. 

MediaHub HD also features a single HDMI back-end cable, which means only a single HDMI port is required on the TV and installation is notably simplified and less expensive.

“MediaHub HD works with any TV and/or video system with an available HDMI port,” said Colin Corby, technical director for TeleAdapt. “Interoperability is not an issue with this new product.”

More and more hotel guest are checking in with their own in-room entertainment, including downloaded music and video and Web-based content. Demand for in-room entertainment their way is intensifying.  Hotels agree: a recent American Hotel & Lodging Association report ranked in-room entertainment No. two in hotel amenity importance by hoteliers, just after Wi-Fi availability.   

“The MediaHub HD’s single-HDMI cable connection to the TV means installation is less expensive and the Bluetooth feature has that wow-factor guests are willing to pay for,” said Brown. “Plus, Apple’s inclusion of the A2DP, or advanced stereo audio profile, on the new iPhone OS 3.0 makes the MediaHub HD an even more solid in-room technology investment for hoteliers.”

TeleAdapt helps properties around the world bring their hotel rooms to life by freeing the guest from headphones and small screens during their stay, enhancing their overall in-room experience.
