Omni Hotels & Resorts has named iBAHN a preferred vendor of IPTV (Internet Protocol Television). Launched with iBAHN’s largest IPTV installation in North America in Omni’s property, the 1,001-room Omni Dallas Hotel, guests at the new hotel can experience an expansive roster of HD channels on any television in their room, including the HD screen embedded in their bathroom mirror. iBAHN completed the installation in less than 90 days and continues to support the property with ETVi, its IPTV service.
Guest room technology includes LCD HDTVs as well as TV monitors within the bathroom mirrors, all powered by iBAHN’s ETVi platform. ETVi delivers IPTV programming, including 82 channels – with a majority in high definition - premium programming and on-demand videos. The proprietary iMEDIA platform further expands entertainment options, allowing guests to access the nearly limitless content of the Internet, delivered in high definition to the television.
In addition to providing a vast array of entertainment options, iBAHN’s platform integrates with the property management system (PMS) and allows for a truly interactive experience between the guest and the hotel. Through ETVi, guests can access property restaurants and activities, make reservations, and request services such as spa appointments.
