Keypr has partnered with Nevaya, a TV cloud entertainment company for hospitality, to create Keypr TV. The new feature allows guests to stream content from their personal mobile devices or Keypr’s in-room tablets to hotel TVs with no app downloads, required sign-ins or complex access codes.
With Keypr TV, hotel guests can now seamlessly replicate their “at-home” experience. The integration works with all Chromecast-compatible apps, allowing guests to stream their favorite shows or movies instantaneously upon entering their room. The complete integration of Keypr tablets and Keypr TV offers a simple way for guests to launch apps and cast to any hotel television, regardless of brand or model.
Keypr’s extensive list of content partners allows hotels to provide more unique entertainment apps via in-room tablets previously not available through embedded TV solutions. Keypr TV offers not only easy casting for guests, but also personalized welcome screens, hotel and travel information, managed promotions to upsell property services, and an interactive exploration mode controlled through the in-room tablet.
Keypr hand-picked Nevaya as its casting partner to guarantee that Keypr TV was powered by the most intuitive and versatile system on the market that can fit into nearly any network architecture. The Nevaya cast-management system ensures privacy between guests, rooms and devices. Guests can connect to Keypr TV automatically as they join the hotel Wi-Fi or via a QR code shown on the TV welcome screen. In either scenario, Keypr and Nevaya manage the pairing without putting any burden on a hotel’s IT department.
“We pride ourselves in being the leader in Chromecast-based TV solutions, entertaining rooms at some of the most prestigious properties across the globe,” James Richmond, Nevaya co-founder and CEO, said in a statement. “We are excited to further expand our reach in the U.S. with the broadest enterprise platform in hospitality.”
The Nevaya backend integrates with Keypr’s guest-experience-management system, which actively monitors all Chromecast devices on the property, and self-heals when a device needs a reset. Other product features include synced inventory across all touchpoints (mirror, in-room tablets, mobile), hotel and travel information, and other amenities.
