Part of its ongoing partnership with PPDS, Otrum has developed its new Mirage platform to be fully compatible and to integrate with both new and existing Philips MediaSuite hospitality TVs (5014, 6014, 5114U, 6114U).
Philips MediaSuite’s features include Chromecast built-in and user data analysis – Mirage, powered by Amazon Cloud Services and the Amazon CloudFront CDN.
Mirage makes the process of adding external third-party sources such as Netflix (embedded on MediaSuite) and other streaming platforms (including premium content) and services to TV screens, a simple one.
Jeroen Verhaeghe, International Business Manager at PPDS, said: “Otrum’s Mirage for Philips MediaSuite takes the control and management of guest room TVs to new levels, bringing a truly advanced, customised experience to hotels.
“When we started developing MediaSuite back in 2014, we wanted to bring a product to market that removed limitations to overcome many of the frustrations our partners and their customers (end users) have historically faced with their hotel TVs. We don’t believe in compromise, so it’s important to provide the market with a choice of solutions, allowing them to choose what works for them. Chromecast built-in is one of those solutions that brings added functionality to the range and Otrum’s Mirage offers yet another way to integrate that directly over the hotel network without the need for a WiFi hotspot in each room.
“Our key strategic partnership with Otrum is another great example of our commitment to developing products and solutions with the best interests of the customer at their core.”
