SM Hotels and Conventions Corp. (SMHCC) elevates personalized entertainment and convenience with IPTV Solutions
Going beyond has always been SMHCC’s ideology. The company’s incessant efforts in fostering a culture of excellence is a clear testament of the company’s commitment to its bullish growth and expansion plans. This includes the realization that, in this modern landscape, novelty and technological advancements are keys in elevating our guests’ experience, transporting them into new realms of comfort, enjoyment, and grandiosity.
Among the hotels in the 3-star category, SMHCC is one of the first to introduce the intuitive Internet Protocol Television (IPTV) Solutions technology in its properties, putting it at the forefront of innovative hospitality accommodations and facilities. With the goal of providing each guest a unique and memorable experience in mind, this infrastructure has been integrated to select hotels (Radisson Blu Cebu, Park Inn by Radisson Iloilo, and Park Inn by Radisson North EDSA), and subsequently to its other existing and upcoming properties across the country.
This technological step-up aligns itself with SMHCC’s thrust for sustainable tourism and responsible consumption, allowing each property the ability to make a mark in its aim to operate paperless transactions, which ultimately benefits the environment.
In its essence, IPTV is beyond what the typical television offers today. With the rise of upgraded internet-tethered screens and entertainment systems, IPTV endeavors to do more than the mainstream “online” TV. Apart from all the functions of a normal unit, IPTV Solutions integrates a holistic guest experience in a sleek, versatile 43-inch and 49-inch LG hotel-grade Smart TV screen with high picture quality, a sophisticated design which enhances in-room entertainment and convenience.
Custom-made down to its light speed fiber-cable internet network infrastructure for the casual vacationer and tech-savvy traveler, IPTV Solutions delivers various engaging features such as Quick Menu, hotel information (such as its facilities, dining options, services, and emergency protocols), onscreen radio capabilities, weather predictions and dashboard, and a direct line to the front desk for easy access to guests’ running bills, and a personalized welcome screen to greet guests upon their entrance to the room.
In addition, these televisions are optimized for the specific environment and property, specially designed to give the guest a user-friendly and practical experience. Guests can also navigate through its basic and easy screen templates, multi-language features, and use media streaming.
SMHCC continues to delight its guests and provide an overall unique and memorable experience with its constant and revolutionary initiatives. With IPTV Solutions and future projects akin to this new technology, guests can be assured of comfort and convenience unlike any other. Clearly, as one of the leading developers and operators in the country, SMHCC endeavors to exceed global standards of excellence, while offering its guests a unique hospitable service that is distinctively Filipino.
