BeyondTV (BTV), a full-service provider of guestroom entertainment services and solutions for the hospitality industry, has launched a certification program in Italy that will provide the county's LG Business Solutions dealership network with the ability to offer BeyondTV GuestCast™ to hotel customers. As part of BeyondTV's ongoing rapid expansion into hospitality markets around the world, the certification program now available to LG Business solutions will ensure that Italian hoteliers are able to meet guest demands for hassle-free access to personal streamed content on guestroom televisions.
"Access to personalized streamed content is both the present and future of guest in-room entertainment, so we are always looking to expand our offerings to customers with products that allow them to adapt to the latest trends and expectations," said Francesco Cecere, ID National Key Account Manager- Hospitality at LG Business Solutions. "BeyondTV GuestCast with its hospitality-specific design is ideally suited to this need and we look forward to working with the BeyondTV team to provide hotels in Italy with the latest in casting functionality that the industry has to offer."
Sidestepping the need for complex integrations and compatible with virtually any hotel-based television and Wi-Fi network, BeyondTV GuestCast is able to provide each guest with the effortless ability to cast thousands of mobile-based apps onto guestroom televisions from personal devices including laptops, iOS or Android-based tablets and smartphones. By using their own devices to manage TV content, guests can also reduce contact with shared surfaces such as television remote controls which may represent a potential germ risk. Eliminating the need to enter in sensitive login details onto a publically shared television, guests can further instantly access personal streaming subscriptions including Netflix, Amazon Prime and Disney+ without having to be concerned over possible data theft.
"We are honored to work alongside LG Business Solutions in providing their customers with an in-room entertainment experience that mirrors the convenience and flexibility guests are accustomed to at home and now expect during their hotel stay," said Gary Patrick, CEO at BeyondTV. "BeyondTV GuestCast not only ensures that guests can seamlessly view all of the movies and shows that they love, it also provides them with full peace-of-mind in knowing that their privacy and data is always safe and we are thrilled to bring such benefits to the Italian hotel market."
In addition to removing any need for guests to enter login information, BeyondTV GuestCast also comes equipped with cutting-edge device isolation abilities. This feature prevents cross-room communication and the potential for content being inadvertently transmitted to the incorrect television.
