BNS, one of Asia’s leading IPTV technology and content solutions providers, has deployed its RoomWise HD-IPTV in-room entertainment solution at a new hotel recently opened by Hong Kong’s Empire Hotel Group.

Located in the city’s Causeway Bay district, the hotel offers 276 guest rooms which are equipped with state of the art in-room facilities, including BNS’ RoomWise HD-IPTV solution.

BNS’ system provides 26 local and international HD and SD channels and VoD services which are shown on the hotel’s 42-inch in-room flat-screen TVs and also includes next-generation front-end interactivity features that take advantage of the latest HD IP-STB technology, which is currently a first in Hong Kong.

“For our new Empire Hotel in Causeway Bay we wanted to create a truly memorable in-room experience which required an innovative entertainment and information system to handle our wide range of services,” said Richard Ng, group general manager of The Empire Hotels & Resorts. “By employing BNS RoomWise solution, we believe that our guests will enjoy the ease and efficiency in receiving the useful information and hotel services that we provide.”

Designed around the Empire Hotel’s corporate look and feel, the walled garden hospitality features include real-time flight information, weather, room service, HD TV casual games, local map and points of interest, housekeeping mode, express checkout, folio review, world time and TV alarm, TV messaging and others.

Connected via an IP network, centrally programmed and controlled via easy-to-operate management software, RoomWise integrates seamlessly with the hotel’s existing property management systems (PMS).

BNS, a member of the Hotel Technology Next Generation Association, will showcase RoomWise at the HTNG Asia Pacific Conference, held from 13-15 July at the Ritz Carlton Millenia in Singapore.
