Exterity, a VITEC company, announced that Holiday Inn Dubai Al-Maktoum Airport and the adjacent Staybridge Suites Dubai Al-Maktoum Airport have deployed an integrated Exterity IPTV and digital signage system.
Shanu Ammunni, Director of Information Technology at Ishraq Hospitality, said: “Exterity was the clear choice based on its reliability in hospitality environments and comprehensive feature set. The project’s success has been noticed by the wider group, which is now considering Exterity for other hotels within Dubai and other regions.”
The Exterity system delivers 125 channels of TV content as well as hotel-branded infomercials to the 1,000 screens across the 606 rooms and suites, plus public areas such as lobbies, bars and meeting rooms.
It provides integrated support for the hotels’ Samsung Hospitality TVs. Guests can also connect their own mobile devices to the IPTV system to access additional on-demand video services via site-wide high-speed internet access.
Exterity’s IPTV deployment delivers seamless integration with the OPERA property management and point of sale systems used by both hotels to provide guests in-room access to room service, billing, concierge services and spa bookings directly from screens in each room and suite.
Exterity solution powers digital signage screens across both the Holiday Inn and Staybridge Suites to provide wayfinding and other information such as marketing within the spas, bars, restaurants and common areas such as lobbies, landings and elevators.
