The guest’s audio/video content as well as auto-TV-switching control is now transferred through only a single-HDMI cable connection to the TV.Neil Betterton, vice president of product development, explains, “CEC compatibility with these top TV makers means our customers can choose MediaHub TL, the most feature-rich connectivity panel on the market, and know that we will operate seamlessly with their VOD, set top box, DVD player or any other entertainment peripheral they want to add to their in-room system. And, regardless of their system components, we will require only one HDMI cable connection and only one HDMI port on that TV. It’s as simple as that.”
It is common to see travellers accessing their entertainment content in completely new ways when away from home such as Netflix, Hulu, and Pandora on their gaming consoles, tablets and other mobile devices. Hotel guests can use MediaHub to experience their music, movies, video games, photos and other multi-media content from their personal multimedia device through the hotel room’s flat screen HDTV. When using MediaHub’s CEC technology, guests can also power on the LG or Samsung TV just by plugging into the room’s MediaHub TL.
Betterton adds “watching on a mobile makes sense on an airplane, but when they get to the hotel you want connect into the TV and get back to that at-home type of experience. That’s where MediaHub comes in. We make the TV mobile-friendly, making it possible for the guest to connect seamlessly without having to reach behind a mounted TV to plug in, disable the VOD system to turn on auxiliary ports, or even use the remote control to turn the in-room entertainment system on.”
