Teleste will be demonstrating its Luminato headend platform and showing how when combined with open application development, operators will be able to rethink their headend services and build a broader more targeted offering for their customers.
“Delivering smart video and TV services will maintain their position at the core of headend development, but in the future, also other types of headend services and technologies will evolve, driven by the diversifying needs of consumers as well as individual service providers and operators”, said Julius Tikkanen, Vice President of Video Service Platforms for Teleste. “Introducing open application development to our Luminato headend, Teleste has made it possible for operators to outline and implement solutions that best benefit them and their customers already today.”
Teleste Luminato has been used to provide smart hotel TV services for Hibox Smartroom
In addition to being a modern TV system for smart TVs, the Hibox Smartroom allows hotel operators to provide premium guest Wi-Fi for hotel visitors, monetize Internet traffic, trigger and display emergency messages and sounds, and even manage and follow up cleaning and maintenance activities in hotels.
“Our vision is to help hotel operators add value to their brand, share information, as well as save time and money while creating a delightful experience for hotel guests“, told Mathias Johnson, Product Manager of Hospitality for Hibox. “Deploying Teleste’s Luminato headend has given us the possibility to provide our customers with a solution that meets the needs of the industry, and creates added value through convenient and compact installation and eco-friendliness.”
Running on the Luminato application module, the Hibox Smartroom does not need any additional PC servers on the headend. The space-saving solution allows hotel operators to reduce the number of hardware needed at the premises, and also the environment benefits from the lower energy consumption and less need for cooling.
