ADB’s portfolio meets the expectations of today’s TV and broadband operators who want to quickly adapt their offering to the rapidly changing market requirements and deliver modern multi-play service.

In short, ADB offers all essential elements needed for efficient TV content delivery, regardless of the operator type or delivery network, including:

  • high-performing set-top boxes,
  • graphyne2 software suite with its essential components: client software for all types of devices, multiscreen UX, backend system, video headend and app store,
  • complete set of Personalization and Monetization tools including ADB Recommendation Engine, Monitoring & Analytics, Marketing Automation, Advertising and UX configuration,
  • epiCure – a real-time diagnostic and troubleshooting platform ensuring the Ultimate Quality of Service.

BIG NEWS AT HT-NEXT: ADB Now Selling vuTyme IRE Direct to Hotels

  • Demand for the vuTyme in-room entertainment solution is growing in markets outside of ADB partner distribution footprints
  • From installation to support, vuTyme is being offered as a turnkey service to all hotels, brands and management companies
  • ADB will continue supporting vuTyme through its MSO partners
  • ADB is proud to be a gold sponsor at HT-NEXT, book appointment by emailing [email protected]

 March 01, 2018 – Geneva, Switzerland – ADB has big news for attendees at HT-NEXT in March. To meet the hospitality industry’s growing demand for vuTyme, the company is now selling its popular in-room entertainment solution direct to hotels. Previously sold through the U.S. cable operators only as a white-labelled iTV solution, vuTyme is now available as a turnkey solution – from installation to support – via ADB.

Hoteliers interested in learning more about this new direct-to-hotel program are encouraged to visit ADB at the HT-NEXT event, March 12 to 14 at the Manchester Grand Hyatt in San Diego.

“vuTyme is no longer hospitality’s best kept secret; it’s now a name that’s on the lips of hotelier’s coast to coast thanks to our highly-successful and intensive two-year marketing initiative,” said Chris Dinallo, CTO & General Manager of ADB vuTyme Business Unit. “Our business model has always been to sell directly to cable operators through an exclusive white-label relationship. However, what has become apparent is that many hotel management companies that have numerous properties spanning across different MSOs don’t want to deal with multiple MSOs; therefore, by selling directly to the hotels, ADB is bringing everyone together, satisfying the needs of hotel operators and hand-delivering new customers to the MSOs. Our partnership with the cable operators remains intact; they will support our customers on the back end, while we service our customers on the front end.”

According to Hospitality Technology’s 2018 Lodging Technology Study, more than half (53%) of hoteliers plan to make some change with smart TVs and/or technologies that enable

guests to stream content, placing the technology as the top guest-facing priority. As more guests arrive on property with their own devices and content, demands to stream and cast that content will increase. vuTyme gives guests easy access to their personal accounts and content via over-the-top applications and Screencasting. vuTyme’s vuCaster streams or “casts” personalized programming from YouTube, Netflix, Pandora and other premium content providers onto the bigger in-room screen to deliver a frictionless customer experience without the guest having to provide their account login credentials.

Here are a few other coveted features of vuTyme:

  • vuTyme entertains guests with more than 200 HD channels, a Searchable IPG, thousands of FREE Video on Demand titles and a Pay-per-view offering.
  • vuTyme tells guests what they want to know via folio review and check out; hotel amenities and local information; news, weather and sports programming; service requests; and a dedicated branded channel. Plus, vuTyme gives guests meetings information and group agendas via a digital signage for in rooms and public spaces.
  • vuTyme tells guests what they need to know via its new Emergency Alert Messaging system. Guests will be notified in detail on the in-room TV if they should exit or stay in the room to keep them out of harm’s way.
  • vuTyme gives guests a voice by rating their stay experience, providing social media connections, inputting housekeeping or maintenance service requests and receiving hotel/group messaging direct to the in-room TV.
  • vuTyme is also available in a scaled-back version called vuTyme Lite. It offers an All-IP digital platform that reduces the cost of the in-room device. With reduced software features, no third-party licensees, and the new low-cost in-room device, total cost of ownership to the hotelier is as a much as 40 percent less.

“With vuTyme, hotels and guests now have value features that entertain, inform, and enrich the in-stay experience,” Dinallo said. “Better yet, we deliver vuTyme using the hotel’s existing coaxial cable or Ethernet, saving costs, space and power consumption. vuTyme also integrates to more than 40 PMS systems, including Oracle/Micros, and it has interfaces to a dozen-plus Guest Services Systems. Hoteliers with limited budgets, yet who are looking to offer the tools that today’s travelers demand, can now turn directly to ADB and vuTyme.”

4K Set-Top-Box with ADB technology driving the nc+ offer

Starting this week, nc+ customers will enjoy the new 4K Set-Top-Box powered by software developed by experts from ADB, a renowned leader in innovative digital broadcast solutions.

This is the first time that Polish satellite TV subscribers will be able to watch and enjoy content in ultra-high definition 4K including live channels, movies from VOD libraries and  internet services. Soon the operator plans to broadcast the first transmission of sports events in 4K, and in the future intends to further broaden the 4K content package.

In addition to the rich set of standard Set-Top-Box functionalities, a trademark feature of UltraBOX+ with ADB technology is multirecording involving simultaneous recordings of three programs in the background while watching the fourth channel live. In addition, quick response time and fast zapping ensure swift switching between channels, which further enhances the viewing experience.

The power of proven, fully integrated modern solutions from ADB, combined with digital converters, enables a viewer to seamlessly access this new functionality via a single satellite antenna cable. This demonstrates ADB’s focus not only to deliver modern technology but also to make it simple to use and deploy.

“The 4K UltraBOX+ product is an example of yet another joint success and our strong partnership with nc+. In fact over ten years ago, together with nc+, we introduced the HDTV standard to the Polish market and launched our first HD platform. We initiated the revolution in television reception and viewer experience. Since then, nc+ has applied many  ADB pioneering solutions such as: PVR, pushVOD, Multiscreen, Internet TV, etc. to create an attractive, innovative and feature-rich offer. We are very pleased that the operator has again chosen ADB technology to create UltraBOX+ and that together we are initiating the 4K era, once again ahead of the competition. This is the proof that we are a leader in the deployment and integration of modern technologies” said Jacek Galik, Vice President of Sales at ADB.

ADB Cites Three Features of In-Room Entertainment Every Hotel Should Budget for in 2018

  • Enable guests to use their smartphones, tablets, laptops and other portable devices to project their OTT (over the top) content to the in-room TV
  • Broadcast emergency alert messaging on room TVs to inform guests and staff of safety procedures in case of fire, natural disasters or criminal threats
  • Turn static display TV monitors into a digital content campaign manager to support property wide Digital Signage

November 2, 2017 – Geneva, Switzerland. – Today’s in-room entertainment technologies have evolved beyond providing pay-per-view movies in guestrooms. It now encompasses everything from live TV, video on demand, pay per view, and searchable interactive program guides, to pausing, rewinding, fast-forwarding live TV and streaming content from guests’ mobile devices to the TV.  ADB, a company delivering advanced TV solutions for hotels across cable, satellite, and IPTV for more than 20 years, has identified the top three features every hotelier should request from their IRE provider in 2018 to meet their operational needs and guests demands.

“Times are changing, and hoteliers are finding that they can use the IRE system to do much more than provide guests with television programming,” said Chris Dinallo, CTO & General Manager of ADB vuTyme Business Unit. “Research shows a big chunk of hotels’ IT spending next year will be used towards improving digital customer engagement. As guests become more accustomed to accessing information when and where they want it, hotels must invest in technologies that meet those demands. Only then will the guest experience truly be enhanced and appreciated.”

Consider these findings:

  • According to the 4th edition Egencia Business Travel and Technology Survey (2017), travelers are looking to technology to make the corporate travel journey more productive and manageable. The report shows 66 percent of business travelers want to manage their business travel on every mobile device, not just on their smartphone. Additionally, 56 percent of global respondents simply want access to business travel tools to do more on mobile in general.
  • According to Hospitality Technology’s 2017 Customer Engagement Technology Study, 79% of hotels plan to have a comprehensive mobile experience in place for guests by 2018; 62% plan to add or upgrade their Digital Signage platform in 2018; and 42% of guests said they want integration between their mobile phone and the in-room TV
  • In its 2017 Portrait of American Travelers survey, MMGY Global reports that Millennial families – who rely on mobile technology for a do-it-yourself travel experience – are going to spend more and travel more in 2018 than all other generational segments. The study predicts that the 9.5 million households that are American Millennial families will spend 19 percent more on vacations during the next 12 months and intend to travel 35 percent more than the previous year. To support the demands of this demographic, hotels need to invest in the technologies their Millennial guests expect to use during their stays.

“Hoteliers need to understand that interactive TV content – or lack thereof – has a direct impact on guest satisfaction and loyalty,” Dinallo said. “If hotels are not offering the level of in-room entertainment services that guests want – especially Millennials – they will go elsewhere.”

Here are three features that every IRE provider should offer in 2018 and beyond:

  1. Screencasting – This feature enables users to “cast” their personalized programming from YouTube, Netflix, Pandora and other premium content providers onto the bigger in-room screen. When it comes to in-room entertainment, travelers would prefer to watch content that they bring with them using the room TV because most hotels have limited channels.

ADB created vuCaster (powered by Google Cast™) to make the streaming process as easy as possible. To stream content from smartphones, tablets, portable computers and other mobile devices to the TV, guests simply use the vuTyme on-screen menu to activate vuCaster. It’s not necessary for guests to enter their account credentials for Netflix, YouTube, Amazon Prime, Hulu and others. Once activated, guests launch their favorite content app on their mobile device and press the “Cast” icon, content is instantly streamed to the TV. It’s frictionless. And, when content is being viewed on the TV, it frees up guests’ mobile devices for other activities.

  1. Emergency Alert Messaging – This feature will inform guests via in-room TV of on-premise threats and the specific emergency action they should take to keep them safe. Instead of sounding just an audible alarm to alert guests of an incident without knowing specifically what the emergency is, where it is, and what they need to do, tying EAM to the in-room TV will provide them with the details they need to act.

ADB is hospitality’s first IRE provider to add an Emergency Alert Messaging system to its platform, providing guests with real-time, life-saving information via the in-room TV about what is happening and what they need to do to remain safe.

  1. Digital Signage – If you’ve got TVs, you can have digital signage. Providing interactive wayfinding, lists of events and hotel services can be costly, but guests expect it. If it’s not part of a hotel’s mobile app, that information must be prominently visible somewhere. Working with the hotel’s IRE provider, hoteliers can easily display relevant content via TVs that are not in use.

ABD works with hotels to turn their un-used TVs into a non-interactive content display system without processing fees or involving a third party to manage it for them. The ADB Digital Signage system is no cost; it comes with the vuTyme IRE system and no dedicated equipment is needed. It’s flexible; hoteliers can enable/disable on any given vuTyme TV. There are no dependencies; hoteliers can create their own content. It supports simple content generation; PowerPoint and images suffice.

“Hoteliers with limited budgets, yet who are looking to offer the tools that today’s travelers demand, can turn to ADB and vuTyme,” Dinallo said. “Our solutions are low cost and easy to deploy via your local cable provider. Better yet, they meet the very specific demands of today’s discerning travelers – especially Millennials.”

vuTyme is offered as a managed service to hotels using the global cloud infrastructure or cable company central office. ADB offers 24/7 monitoring to ensure reliability and delivery of service. vuTyme requires no capital expenditure and hotel head-end equipment – just a compact set-back box discretely mounted behind the TV.

ADB graphyne2 brings Android TV into the Pay TV Operator Arena

This year, at IBC, ADB announced that Android TVTM is now part of graphyne2TM Family. Android TV brings to the consumer global reach and open access to the OTT content directly from the studios and multiple content aggregators. Consumers often look elsewhere for an alternative to current pay TV offerings from incumbent operators, but it doesn’t need to  be that way anymore.

From now on, the pay TV operators, can also provide access to GoogleTM TV Services like YouTubeTM, ChromecastTM and Google Play StoreTM, whilst keeping all the benefits of ADBs’ graphyne2 Suite, including the multiscreen, pay TV and OTT hybrid video delivery, personal recommendations, the customization and branding dashboard, the remote management, analytics and A/B testing capability and other beyond video plugins. Quite simply, the best of all worlds.

“I have heard pay TV operators commenting that finally, seeing the ADB’s graphyne2 launcher nicely blending the operator and OTT worlds into one keeping the operator’s identity, we can think of introducing the Android TV into our pay TV offer”, said Jacek Galik, SVP Sales Eastern Europe.

graphyne2 Android, as part of graphyne2 Family, provides consistent user experience over legacy and latest generation set-top boxes, mobile and PC applications as well as Android TV devices.

“Thanks to graphyne2, I can improve my current service and add premium decoders, which will bring number of OTT content applications from Google Play Store”, said one of conference delegates vising ADB’s booth. “I can also run graphyne2 application on existing smart TVs or let the user watch the video on his tablet, all this running from one backend platform and customized by the same dashboard”, he continued.

Thanks to over 20 years of experience with pay TV middleware and hardware, ADB supports the secured broadcast delivery through tuners, as well as bringing DVB metadata into the Android TV world in a smooth way, making it available to any third part application.

“Our stand was very busy this year”, commented Frank Kessaratos, EVP Head of the WW Sales, “we are really happy to see the interest from our current and prospect customers. We have responded to their demand for agility in a changing TV environment, and we started a number of interesting conversations, which shortly should convert into real deals”, he continued.

graphyne2 has been already selected by two operators in Europe and is being trailed by two more, including one in multi-tenant mode. More information on graphyne2 can be found at http://www.adbglobal.com/graphyne2.
