The In-Room Entertainment solution, launched in collaboration with Nomadix, allows the use of content by the guest directly on the hotel TV, without the requirement of logging in.
July 2021 – VDA Group launches VDA Casting, the new TV entertainment service in collaboration with Nomadix – a VDA partner for over a decade – linked to in-room entertainment, which allows guests of accommodation facilities to view their contents on the TV in their room OTT (Over The Top) multimedia without having to enter their credentials on the Hotel platform.
With VDA Casting, guests can access their Netflix, Prime Video, HBO, Hulu, Disney +, Spotify, Amazon, YouTube accounts from their device, without being limited to the hotel offer, and continue to use their device without interruption.
The world hospitality market has been in full revolution for many years. The centrality of the guest in the travel experience and the room as a destination rather than a place of transit are the two main challenges for hotels which, to be competitive, must offer diversified and cutting-edge services. According to some studies by Inter-Digital and Future Source, on vacation more and more guests want to access personal content and for about 50% of travelers the presence of a Casting service is decisive for the travel decision.
“The VDA Casting solution is a Win-Win formula because on the one hand, it improves the quality of the service offered by the Hotel, and on the other hand, it personalizes the travel experience of the guest who can bring comforts from home with him, even on vacation”, he says. William Feltrin, Product Marketing Manager of VDA Group, “The hotel room follows the metamorphosis of its guest. The environment becomes both a private space in which to relax and a place for recreation and entertainment. A room environment flexibility that we at the VDA Group know well “, concludes William Feltrin.
