Roomlinx, Inc. (OTC: RMLX), a leading supplier of hospitality in-room interactive TV products, is gaining recognition as a frontrunner for delivering hotel in-room media and entertainment.

The company’s success from existing customers has led to positive media coverage and comprehensive descriptions of how and why the system works. For instance, Buyer Interactive’s Beth Kormanik said, “People want on-demand content, high-definition quality and the capability to interact with their own mobile devices, such as mp3 players, gaming systems and portable DVD players. Roomlinx brings those together in one system that adds the full functionality of a personal computer.”

Kormanik interviewed Roomlinx customer Scott Schreiber, president of the Kessler Enterprise, who said he was looking for “innovation that brought customers capabilities that they have not seen in other hotel rooms, or anywhere for that matter. Roomlinx stood out because it was the most innovative while remaining user friendly.”  He also commented on the satisfaction of his guests. "Our guests love the system and their comments have been along the lines of, 'I want this at home,' 'one of the best parts of our stay,' and 'everyone in the family was fighting for their turn on the system.’  The tremendous resolution of working on the Web through a 37-inch HDTV is very popular with our guests and they love the on-demand movies, concerts and TV shows."

Kormanik also spoke with Terry Alexander, general manager of the Sleep Inn in Minot, N.D., another Roomlinx customer, who said, “We wanted to define our niche, set us apart from the competition and add value to our guestrooms instead of cutting rate…The technology that’s tied into the Roomlinx system is amazing.  Anything guests can do at home on their computer they can do in their hotel room, whether it’s making a reservation at Ruby Tuesday or working on a document. The average guest spends more time on Roomlinx than using regular cable TV.”

First Business TV featured another Roomlinx client, theWit Hotel in Chicago. “People are looking for content that they pick and choose, not what’s pre-selected by the hotel,” said Darrin Pinkham, chief technology officer of ECD Company, owner of theWit Hotel.  “Roomlinx has the ability to actually use the Internet and power of it to go get customized content that people want immediately.”

Roomlinx Interactive TV delivers on demand HD movies and specialty content, Web services, world music, newspapers, and TV, business tools, hotel, local and travel information, mobile device connectivity, games and more via the in-room LCD flat-screen TV.  Roomlinx offers a custom solution that is scalable with profitable business models for both limited, full and luxury brands.  For hotels, the Roomlinx Interactive TV product provides an effective strategy for new revenue streams, value-addition, brand loyalty and e-commerce. For guests, the product can be included in the room rate, which makes Roomlinx one of the first ever free-to-guest video on-demand providers. 

Another factor influencing Roomlinx’ increased media coverage is the company’s rapid expansion into the hospitality market. The company recently announced that it had installed seven hotels in a span of only eight weeks.

Roomlinx is a hospitality in-room expert providing in-room Interactive TV products designed to increase revenues and brand loyalty for hotels, resorts and other properties, utilizing premium content and applications demanded by today's traveler.
