Hotel Internet Services launched BeyondTV GuestCast, an advanced casting offering that, while affordable for hoteliers to implement, provides guests with the ability to securely cast a wide range of personalized content from their own devices onto guestroom televisions.
Compatible with more than 1,000 mobile-based apps, the solution is designed to provide hoteliers with a seamless implementation and management process while ensuring ease-of-use for guests and providing complete protection over their privacy and personal data. With BeyondTV GuestCast, hotel guests are able to instantly cast their own content from personal computers, iOS or Android-based devices. Guests also can rest assured that their sensitive data is never at risk of theft or unintentional sharing due to GuestCast’s device isolation capabilities that prevent cross-room communication.
“Today’s guests overwhelmingly favor online streaming services versus traditional video-on-demand offerings when it comes to in-room entertainment, with BeyondTV GuestCast serving as an affordable yet fully functional solution that is capable of meeting this increasingly expected need,” HIS CEO Gary Patrick said in a statement. "GuestCast not only provides users with the ability to continue accessing the content that they enjoy viewing at home, but critically provides them with the peace of mind that accessing such content is always completely safe despite being in a public environment."
Being an enterprise-grade hospitality product, properties can quickly and seamlessly implement GuestCast, with the ability to operate on virtually any internet network or guestroom television model. The solution also integrates with a hotel's free-to-guest system. GuestCast further provides hoteliers with the ability to monitor system health and is backed by 24/7 support.
