TV for Hotels – The COM2000 Welcome Screen
NEW 48 channel COM2000 Pro:Idiom HD Headend vs 24 Channel SD Headend
In just 2 years, the COM2000 Pro:Idiom HD Headend from Technicolor has already become the standard for hotel television systems.
This plug and play hotel television system has revolutionized the industry by:
- decreasing the size of a 48 channel headend to just 3U of rack space
- cut the power consumption to just 225 watts,
- provided an on-screen program guide,
- and increased capabilities for the hotel
ALL for less than half the price of the previous generation of hotel headend technology.
The COM2000 is able to be managed and monitored remotely over the internet or local network using a simple web-browser based interface.
In addition to Pro:Idiom encryption, the COM2000 is also compatible with the Samsung LYNK™ server to provide LYNK encryption to protect HD content from piracy.
The COM2000 Welcome Screen
One of the capabilities of this powerful headend system that few hotels are taking advantage of is the ability to provide your guests with a Welcome Screen Channel.
With the COM2000 Welcome Screen you use a single QAM Channel to promote amenities in your hotel, inform guests of events, post restaurant menus and hours, and even host revenue producing for local businesses.
On the COM2000 Welcome Screen channel you can utilize up to 10 static images rotating every few seconds to better inform your guests and promote your hotel.
How to Create Your COM2000 Welcome Screen Content
The static images for your COM2000 Welcome Screen can be easily created using Microsoft Powerpoint and then saving as a 720×480 pixel .BMP image. Your TV for Hotels dealer can then help you insert the images in the system or train your IT staff to install the images.
Here are a few examples of what can be included:
