Implementing a guest information system is often challenged by a high investment need, as it requires dedicated hospitality TV sets in all rooms.
With the In Touch 6.1 update and the new TRIAX TV Player, you can install a professional guest information system on TVs of almost any make and model, making the most of your existing equipment and eliminating any need to invest in hospitality TVs.
The TV Player is a compact die-cast box that can be securely mounted behind most TVs, tucked away tamper-free and out of sight. It’s controlled by the included RF-based universal remote, enabling access to all the apps and functionalities of the In Touch platform and the TV itself.
New functionalities for the In Touch TV solution
The In Touch guest room TV solution has been expanded adding three new apps: TV Guide App, TV Pack App and HDMI source select App.
TV Guide App expands the existing now & next feature with a programme guide (EPG) for the next 48 hours.
TV Pack App enables up to 4 different TV channel packages which can be up-sold and added to individual rooms by front desk staff upon request, or potentially used in other commercial communication to differentiate between room offerings.
Finally, the popular HDMI Source Select App has been upgraded to be fully customizable. With the new software it is now possible to assign up to 2 different HDMI sources per installation, giving guests the option to connect their own device directly to the TV, or for example enabling access to a casting solution for guests to cast their own content to the TV.
Launched together with the new software is a new Digital Signage Player (DS Player), which includes WiFi, 2 HDMI outputs, and is 4K compliant.
With WiFi you now have the full freedom to place your digital signage screen wherever you prefer, without having to worry about available ethernet outlets.
With the dual parallel HDMI output, you can connect two screens to the same DS Player and save both installation hardware cost and time when updating your messages. This is a big benefit in areas where you have back-to-back screens showing the same content, and is frequently used in train stations, airports, and other public areas where the flow of people can come from several directions.
With 4K being implemented in more and more screens the new DS Player has also been upgraded to be 4K compliant, supporting 4K graphics giving you the flexibility to use screens with both new and older technologies.
The new DS Player is available in two versions — with or without PoE. If your digital signage is placed where an ethernet cable is available and your switch supports PoE, the DS player with PoE can be powered via the ethernet cable, reducing the need for additional power outlets.
