Sonifi launches website pairing for Staycast

Sonifi launches Sonicast
Sonifi's website pairing technology works is backwards compatible with existing Staycast installations.

Sonifi Solutions launches website pairing for Staycast, the in-room streaming solution. With website pairing, guests simply visit a website to connect to the in-room TV—no app required.

"Guests already love the simplicity of Staycast—they can easily stream their own content without having to enter personal credentials into the hotel room TV," Kara Heermans, VP of product management and UEX at Sonifi, said in a statement. "But as app fatigue grows, guests and hoteliers wanted an option that would not require any additional app downloads to connect. The website pairing innovation came directly from listening to our customers and their respective guests."

Sonifi's website pairing technology works with any mobile browser and is backwards compatible with existing Staycast installations with no additional requirements.

With website pairing, hotels have yet one more way to provide a safe and secure streaming experience. Staycast enables an isolated connection between the TV, the Chromecast and the guest's mobile device, so that guests can only stream to the TV in their own room. Hotels can now choose to enable that isolated connection via website pairing, via integration with their own app, through Wi-Fi authentication, or via a Sonifi app, whichever option aligns with the guest experience they wish to create.
