Guest-tek™ has announced the pairing of its OneView™ media application with the ProCentric® Internet-Protocol Television (IPTV) platform from LG Electronics for North American hotel customers.

 
For guests, this collaboration means the ultimate in-room, interactive multimedia experience on high-definition LED displays. 

As a result of a cooperative development effort between LG Electronics USA and Guest-tek, LG’s LP870H and LT777H hospitality TVs built around the Pro:Centric  smart IPTV platform can now support Guest-tek’s OneView Media client application.
 
“This alliance delivers a highly advanced, cost-effective solution for hotels,” said Arnon Levy, CEO of Guest-tek. “By adapting Guest-tek’s OneView media application to work with LG’s smart IPTV system, we can deliver benefits that puts hoteliers at a competitive advantage.”

The new solution takes advantage of the latest HTML5 Pro:Centric platform, which reduces hardware, installation and maintenance costs while supporting embedded applications,  a web browser and HTTP live streaming, as well as sharing of content from personal devices with Guest-tek’s myAway TV application.

It provides hotel customers with a wide range of features, including a full customized user interface, interactive program guide, music selections, hotel marketing and promotional features, guest communications, folio review and check-out services, Internet radio, on-screen guest directories and compendium features.

Richard Lewis, vice president of B2B technology and research at LG Electronics USA, cited the Guest-tek alliance as further validation of the Pro:Centric platform. “OneView complements Pro:Centric to create a rich media experience for hotel guests, while meeting hoteliers’ goals of streamlined and more cost-effective in-room entertainment solutions.”  

The first property to adopt this solution will be the new Marriott Marquis in Washington, DC. This 1,175 room hotel is planned to open in May.
