Hyatt to Outfit Andaz NYC Property with Roomlinx iTV Following Extensive RFP

Hyatt has awarded Roomlinx a contract to install products at the new Andaz 5th Avenue in New York City after an extensive request-for-proposal (RFP) process to find a new in-room entertainment provider. Roomlinx will install and manage the property's network including Roomlinx's Interactive TV (iTV) product, high speed internet access (HSIA), and free-to-guest (FTG) programming for a term of three years.
Roomlinx will complete a full installation of all 184 rooms at the Andaz, which is scheduled to open July 1, 2010, with the potential to install an additional 10,000 rooms at other properties in the future.
"After reviewing over a dozen or so other vendors, we were most impressed with Roomlinx.ÕTheir iTV product is the most comprehensive, it is easy-to-use and it allows for future expansion of technology," says Jim Gery vice president, IT, Hyatt Hotels & Resorts, North America. "We were very impressed with the flexible business models Roomlinx has created and the potential revenue iTV can generate."
Roomlinx will also be responsible for the integration of multiple network applications including point of sale handheld tablets, IP phones, door locking solutions, guest request systems, the property management system, back office systems, and the music system into Roomlinx's converged wired and wireless Internet infrastructure.
