Nomadix expands in-room casting platform

Nomadix is expanding its TV Casting solution to help overcome new in-room entertainment hurdles. 

The hospitality industry has been facing two major TV casting challenges: the end of sale for Chromecast v3 and the Netflix account-sharing policy changes. The latest release aims to solve both, making it simple for guests to watch their own shows, including Netflix, on its hospitality-focused Nomadix Casting platform.

Customizable to align with each hotel’s brand and with multilingual support, Nomadix Casting lets guests pair their devices with the in-room TV. No downloads are needed on user devices, and there is no need to enter usernames with the remote or share passwords with the hotel. Thousands of apps are supported. Unlike mirrored casting solutions, once streaming starts, the process is offloaded to the casting server, which lets guests use their iOS or Android devices without interrupting the streaming.

“Guests prefer to watch their own content while traveling, and our team has worked tirelessly to create a simple and secure platform to provide a full-featured TV Casting solution for hotels,” Tammy Estes, chief product officer at Nomadix, said in a statement. “Nomadix Casting was originally introduced in 2020 and has been well-received by global hotel customers. Despite industry disruptions, we are excited to bring new in-room experiences to life with the expansion of the Nomadix Casting platform.”

Nomadix Casting now supports Chromecast for Google TV (Chromecast v4) and will also continue to support Chromecast v3 devices. This will also allow current customers to use Chromecast for Google TV for new expansions while still utilizing previously purchased Chromecast v3 devices without the need to upgrade or replace. The expanded solution will be available this month.
