The Benchmark Inn in Provincetown, Mass., has implemented BeyondTV GuestCast from Hotel Internet Services. Compatible with virtually any internet network and television used in today's guestrooms, BeyondTV GuestCast sidesteps the need for complex integrations and serves as a cost-effective casting solution that mirrors the functionality and ease-of-use that guests are accustomed to when at home. For Benchmark Inn's owners, this meant being able to implement an effective casting service without having to replace existing television sets. Also compatible with more than 1,000 mobile-based apps, BeyondTV GuestCast ensures that guests can access essentially any personalized content that they now expect to be able to experience on a larger guestroom television screen.

"Providing guests with the ability to access their own content in a way that suits their preferences is rapidly becoming a crucial factor in a hotel's ability to remain competitive and ensure full satisfaction," Daniel Judas, the hotel's manager and co-owner, said in a statement. “HIS with its BeyondTV GuestCast platform ensures that we are fully able to meet such needs while providing the flexibility that we need for it to function seamlessly alongside our existing operations. Further still, BeyondTV GuestCast is not only designed to ensure that each guest can easily cast content from any personal device but also allows us to maintain their trust through the protection of personal data.”

As a secure alternative to smart televisions, BeyondTV GuestCast does not require the entering of login usernames and passwords, which may be inadvertently left undeleted after a guest checks out. With its device isolation capabilities, BeyondTV GuestCast also eliminates the risk of cross-room communication to prevent content from being cast to the incorrect television screen.
