Cabletime seeks distribution and integration partners to offer hotels a TV-On-Demand alternative at HITEC 2019

New Jersey, 10 April 2019. Cabletime, developer of the powerful MediaStar range of IPTV, streaming and digital signage solutions is attending HITEC (June 17-20 Minneapolis) this year and will be actively looking to recruit new distribution and integration partners for RoomStar, its live TV and OTT TV solution for the hotel and hospitality market.

The comprehensive RoomStar system combines a TV content distribution functionality with a bespoke property management interface designed to meet the demands of the growing global hotel interactive TV market.

The solution is ideal for franchise and privately-owned hotels with between 50 and 200 rooms looking for proven Hospitality TV technology that is highly reliable, scalable and competitively priced. It provides all the functionality and revenue-generating features of other TV-On-Demand products, such as allowing guests to see the shows of their choice when they want to, access to favorite apps such as Netflix, YouTube and Crackle, and game apps that are ideal for entertaining children.

A highlight of RoomStar is the interactive channel guide which hotel guests can easily navigate to find their selected networks and TV shows. They can also access special interest programs ranging from wine and leisure pursuits through to a wide variety of sports content.

“This market has been dominated by one or two manufacturers for some time, and this has not given hotel owners enough choice, flexibility or good value for money” said Shaun Oxenham, CEO at Cabletime. “Our aim is to meet with distributors and integrators at HITEC who are looking for a viable but reliable alternative for their hotel clients at a great price point. RoomStar is a fully comprehensive TV distribution solution with compelling features, and we are looking to establish strong, fruitful partnerships so that we can open a new niche in an established sector.” 

Cabletime will be demonstrating RoomStar on its booth at HITEC.

The Cabletime MediaStar range provides TV/AV and multimedia distribution products primarily for medium to large enterprises, which require future-proof, stable and proven solutions for live TV, corporate communications, multicasts, music TV, training and digital signage.
