Indigo Hotel Selects Otrum IPTV Services

News Image
Otrum has been chosen by the Indigo Hotel in central Paris for its new IPTV services.

Otrum's IPTV offering is a turnkey solution, currently up and running. Guests staying at the hotel will be able to enjoy access to a dedicated WiFi hotspot in each room and a 42-inch smart TV with the integrated Otrum Enterprise platform.

Otrum's smart technology solutions are designed to meet the needs of the millennial traveller, with peerless guest connectivity options and device-independent guest-facing systems. Otrum uses a set-top-box-free version of Otrum Enterprise. This architecture requires a high level of integration between the different components: middleware, smart TV and the IPTV head-end.

"The streaming and content security system is based on Anevia's Flamingo modular IPTV head-end," says Nigel Bateson, SVP Sales Nordic & Products at Otrum. "Flamingo was the logical choice for this deployment. It captures live television and radio content from satellite, cable and digital terrestrial sources, and streams it in very high quality over an IP network. A single Flamingo head-end unit can deliver hundreds of streams. The solution we have provided to the Indigo Hotel is nothing short of ground-breaking. It includes Anevia's Pro:Idiom (Pro:Idiom is a registered trademark of Zenith Electronics, L.L.C.) encryption option which provides a high level of content protection and also allows direct connection to television receivers without requiring a separate set-top box. This form of direct connection enables Indigo Hotel guests to select programmes and services via the television display screen rather than requiring a separate set-top box."

"This partnership with Otrum in the Indigo Hotel project is the natural result of Anevia high level of R&D investment to bring to the hospitality market the latest IPTV enhancement including digital rights management, multiscreen compatability and cloud-ready solutions," adds Damien Lucas, Anevia CTO and co-founder. "Otrum and Anevia share the same vision to deliver the best possible user experience. Eliminating the traditional set-top box reduces installation and maintenance costs and makes the entire system easier to operate. These advantages benefit hotel guests and management staff alike."
