The new service is operational at Madrid's NH Collection Eurobuilding and is due to be rolled out across many of its 400 hotels "in the near future". Although the 3D technology is currently being tested in Madrid and Berlin.

More specifically, High Tech Made Easy includes the next generation SMART Room System for Microsoft Lync online videoconferencing system, designed to guarantee high-performance meetings and more personal and efficient conferences. NH's meeting rooms are now equipped with the latest videoconferencing and interactive collaboration systems which enable the participation of as many as 250 virtual attendees in a given video call.
