Sonifi launches Sonicast

Sonifi Solutions launches SoniCast powered by Chromecast to enhance the hotel room experience for guests. Chromecast is a media streaming device that plugs into the HDMI port of a TV that allows you to cast your favorite movies, TV shows, music and more from your mobile device to the TV.

Whether binge watching TV series, catching up on movies or enjoying user-generated content, SoniCast delivers the same experience guests enjoy at home from 1000+ Cast-enabled apps in the comfort of their hotel room. SoniCast’s Chromecast integration provides an incredible user experience.

"The mobile-centric Chromecast interaction model, combined with thousands of shows, movies and songs that people can enjoy from Cast-enabled apps, makes this an ideal match for the needs of today's hotel guests,” said Suveer Kothari, director of business development at Google.

“Hulu wants subscribers to be able to access our content anywhere, on any device, and at the highest possible quality,” said Tim Connolly, SVP of distribution and strategic partnerships at Hulu. "Our content library uniquely meets the needs and interests of the busy traveler. We are excited about this innovative solution with Sonifi and Google and the options it provides to our subscribers."

SoniCast’s Chromecast integration enables a simple user interaction model. Guests simply connect their mobile device to the hotel’s Wi-Fi network, and follow the guided instructions on the TV screen to start streaming within minutes.
