Hoist Group and Screenage Choose Anevia's Flamingo IPTV Head-end to
Transform TV Viewing at Preskil Island Resort
Preskil guests can now watch TV anytime, anywhere on personal devices
Anevia, a leading provider of OTT and IPTV software solutions, has enabled the prestigious Preskil Island Resort by Southern Cross Hotels, in Mauritius, to offer innovative TV services to its guests, powered by the Flamingo IPTV head-end. Flamingo enables guests to watch live TV on any personal device such as a phone, tablet or laptop, in their rooms or in the hotel's common areas, with access to a mix of local and premium channels.
To use the service, guests can download Preskil Island Resort mobile application before arriving or on site, thereby getting access to hotel information and the channel selection. During their stay they can then watch TV anywhere and at any time within the hotel grounds, just as they would do at home.
Hospitality technology solutions provider Hoist Group chose Anevia to work with local systems integrator Screenage Limited, because of Anevia's understanding of hospitality requirements and what the hotel team was trying to achieve.
"We completely modernised the guest experience within the resort. Guests today have high expectations of technology and we wanted to give them the multiscreen experience they have become accustomed to," said Vincent Comarmond, General Manager of Preskil Island Resort.
"Since we can locally stream mobile TV services to guests' devices, no extra bandwidth is required and we don't incur additional internet access costs. Most importantly, this system allows us to guarantee the high quality of viewing that our guests expect while giving our marketing department the tools to add virtual channels for internal promotional purposes," adds Ishwan Ramsurn, IT Manager of Preskil Island Resort.
"Our Flamingo solution is the only all-in-one IPTV head-end to include multiscreen functions directly in the product itself. It can bring channels in multiple languages to the in-room TV, as well as to consumer devices. This will allow hotel guests to experience TV on their own terms, even away from home," commented Francois Clemenceau, Sales Director Enterprise, Anevia.
"We are excited to be the first to bring HLS multiscreen streaming to Mauritius through our partnership with Hoist Group and Anevia, and are delighted to be part of the Southern Cross Hotels innovation strategy, which addresses the change in guest expectations," said Rouben Soobrayen, General Manager, Screenage Limited.
"We are very pleased to be working with Screenage and Anevia," said Simon l'Anson, Chief Sales Officer at Hoist Group. "Screenage has been working with Hoist Group in the Indian Ocean for over 10 years, and we are honoured to be part ofSouthern Cross Hotels' exciting development to continue to delight their guests.."
