Budgeting for Better In-Room Entertainment in 2017? vuTyme by ADB Delivers What Guests Want and Hoteliers Need
November 3, 2016 10:34am
November 3, 2016 – Broomfield, Colo. – Hoteliers knee deep in budget season need to keep In-Room Entertainment top of mind for 2017. Recent studies show that guests want a better interactive TV experience while hoteliers want one that is more cost effective. vuTyme by ADB delivers a complete set of services like live TV, VOD, PPV, concierge, digital signage and targeted advertisements. It also offers exciting features such as Searchable Interactive Program Guide (IPG); Over-the-Top (OTT) services access like Screencasting content from a guests own device to the TV; and the ability to pause, rewind, fast-forward and record live TV using its patented DVR-Lite™ technology.
Consider these 2016 findings:
ADB has the technical and behavioral experience that no other supplier has when designing, developing and deploying the next generation of iTV for the hotel environment. With 100 million at-home television set-top boxes and broadband gateway systems installed around the world, ADB is intimately familiar with what guests have, what they use, how they use it, and what they want. This, combined with recent research, gives ADB the technical and behavioral experience that no other supplier has when designing, developing and deploying the next generation of iTV for the hotel environment.

Get Screencasting via vuCaster
Hoteliers with screencasting on their 2017 IRE technology wish list, ADB last month released a complementary solution called vuCaster (Google Cast™ built-in) that augments vuTyme by allowing users to “cast” their personalised programming from YouTube, Netflix, Pandora and other premium content providers onto the bigger in-room screen. Guests can also stream their personal photos, videos, and music to the TV through vuCaster, while at the same time freeing up their mobile device for other activities.
“Before finalizing 2017 budgets, hoteliers need to understand that interactive TV content – or lack thereof – has a direct impact on guest satisfaction and loyalty,” said Chris Dinallo, ADB CTO of Business TV. “If hotels are not offering the level of in-room entertainment services that guests want – especially Millennials – they will go elsewhere, period. vuTyme gives guests everything they want, but at a price-point and with the simplicity and branded content and interfaces that every hotelier requires. Don’t just renew your existing agreement without first taking a look at vuTyme.”
vuTyme is offered as a managed service to hotels using the global cloud infrastructure or cable company central office. ADB offers 24/7 monitoring to ensure reliability and delivery of service. vuTyme requires no capital expenditure and hotel head-end equipment – just a compact set-back box discretely mounted behind the TV.
