HITEC: Austin, TX Hotels Install Cloud-Connected iHDTV Platform
LodgeNet, a provider of media and connectivity solutions to hospitality and healthcare businesses, announced today that they have installed Envision, their interactive HDTV (iHDTV) platform, at the Four Seasons Hotel Austin and the Hilton Austin.
The installations – representing nearly 1,100 guest rooms – mark the first deployments of Envision in the southern United States and offer access to the new Envision applications available in an easy to navigate, “app store” format. In addition, guests can easily access the Local Info app for information about area restaurants, shopping, bars and clubs with the click of a remote. They can also choose from a vast array of entertainment, including the newest Hollywood releases and a large selection of just missed television shows, as well as on demand sports programming. Through the eCompendium feature of the Envision system, HITEC attendees will also be able to view hotel and local area related content created specifically for them.
LodgeNet will host an invitation-only Envision press event on Tuesday, June 21 at 10:00 AM CDT. The event will be held in the company’s HITEC booth (#407) at the Austin Convention Center. LodgeNet invites all HITEC attendees to visit its booth from June 21-23 to see the Envision platform and apps along with other TV, broadband and mobile solutions.
