The brief was clear, when working with the General Manager and the HPF Group’s CEO, the hotel needed a serious IPTV system upgrade. VOD Media stepped in and designed a state of the art IPTV Solution with all the Hotel and Guests’ requirements. The main objective was to keep the existing cable infrastructure and provide the property with a High Definition Quality Picture in all rooms and common areas. The property wanted to get rid of all set top boxes that was installed behind each existing TV, and all TV’s need to be replaced. After a site survey and numerous visits to the property we knew what needed to be done.
The job consisted of a New Digital Head-end for HD Quality Picture, a Acentic Panorama Interactive Server, Juniper Core and Edge Switching, 263 x 42” LG Hospitality LED TV’s, and of course encryption needed to be installed as per the requirements from Multichoice DSTV. We started the Installation on the 8th of August 2015, setting up of the Panorama Server, Digital Head-end and all the switching for each riser. On the 11th we started installation of TV’s and flush mount wall brackets. All the existing equipment needed to be uninstalled and new equipment need to be set up. No drilling was required as we utilized the existing holes. We also needed to keep the existing servers running while we were installing the new system. We could only do one floor per day, as the hotel was fully occupied. After a week of late nights and 263 TV installations, the job was done.
Now the property and guests are enjoying a top of the range High Definition HTML5 Interactive System. Definitely a must for any hotel.
