Nomadix introduced Nomadix Casting, which enables guests to choose the content they want to watch and cast it with their devices directly to the in-room TV. Branded to align with each hotel’s look and feel and customizable in numerous languages, Nomadix Casting enables guests to quickly pair their devices with the in-room TV. No downloads are needed on guest devices, and there’s 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 allows guests to use their iOS or Android devices without interrupting the streaming content.
“The global impact on the hospitality industry has forced hotels to find new ways to differentiate, increase safety and save money, and we are investing in developing products that offer the right-sized solution at the right price,” said Tammy Estes, chief product officer at Nomadix. “Nomadix Casting is an easy-to-use, reliable product that allows guests to watch what they prefer, while eliminating the common headaches of remembering passwords or the security concern of logging into public devices.”
For properties with Nomadix internet gateways integrated with the property-management system, guest devices are automatically recognized and paired with the in-room TVs when they connect to the hotel Wi-Fi network. No other guest action is needed. For properties implementing Nomadix Casting as a stand-alone solution, guests aim their cameras at the QR code on the in-room TV to pair their devices. Then they choose what they want to watch on their personal devices and click the casting button included in all popular content apps, such as Netflix, Hulu, Disney+, Spotify, Amazon, YouTube and more.
