TeleAdapt, a global supplier of hotel products designed to keep hotel guests connected, announced it will unveil at IHM&RS 2009 in New York a new way for hotels to offer iPod® and iPhone® connectivity in their guestrooms.

The new Audio/Video Pull-Through connects iPods and iPhones to the in-room TV so guests can watch their downloaded video and movies in high quality on the flat screen TV, as well as listen to their own music through the in-room TV speakers.

TeleAdapt will be demonstrating the Audio/Video Pull-Through at its IHM&RS exhibit in booth No. 3167, to hoteliers looking for an inexpensive way to give their guests iPod connectivity that goes beyond the audio-only clock radio dock.

“The trend to provide connections for iPods and iPhones is evidenced by the explosion of iPod docking stations in the hotel room,” says Gordon Brown, TeleAdapt CEO. “The iPod clock radio limits hotel guests to audio-only playback.  Travelers have more than just music stored on their iPods. Wouldn’t it be exciting to offer each guest a way to watch their movies and videos from their iPod or iPhone on the big flat panel TV?”

The new Audio/Video Pull-Through comes equipped with the following:

  • An Apple-specific cable for audio and video playback
  • iPod-specific 30pin connector dock faces the guest for connecting an iPod or iPhone
  • Back-end cables connect to the composite audio/video ports on the in-room TV
  • These connections allow audio playback through the in-room TV surround sound speakers as well as video playback for watching movies and video  through the in-room TV screen
  • Weighted base that holds the cable in place
  • Acrylic DeskCard insert holder for guest/user instructions

The Audio/Video Pull-Through is an affordable alternative to a full MediaHub, an all-in-one connectivity panel that allows guests to enjoy personal audio and video content from any portable device through the in-room TV.

“Hoteliers facing budget constraints need to consider the Audio/Video Pull-Through as a low-cost next generation iPod docking station for their guestrooms,” adds Brown. “Audio and video playback for their iPod or iPhone is a value-add amenity that will leave a lasting impression on many hotel guests.”

TeleAdapt helps hotel properties around the world bring their rooms to life with products that enhance the in-room entertainment experience for their guests.
