Omni Hotels & Resorts will offer new interactive TV system upgrades from Sonifi Solutions, bringing a full suite of interactive capabilities to its guests including a seamless streaming experience. Wi-Fi pairing is already installed at Omni Frisco (Texas) Hotel, Omni Louisville (Ky.) Hotel, and Omni Hotel at The Battery Atlanta with plans for installation at 15 more properties by the end of the year.

Sonifi’s Stay interactive solution includes hotel-branded channels with customized content and a hotel directory. Omni Hotels & Resorts offers its guests seamless Wi-Fi device pairing for Staycast – powered by Google Chromecast. With this integration, Omni Hotels & Resorts’ guests are automatically paired to the in-room TV simply by connecting to the hotel’s Wi-Fi network and can immediately stream content from their device to the in-room TV.

“Part of our mission is to create unique, memorable guest experiences through innovation,” Omni Hotels & Resorts CIO Ken Barnes said in a statement. “Working with Sonifi provided us the opportunity to integrate device pairing within our Wi-Fi authentication giving guests a truly seamless hotel streaming experience.”
