What does it mean for your hotel that DIRECTV is 2014 EPA Energy star Partner of the year?

If means that you will save big on your energy bills with DIRECTV as your TV programming provider. Whether your hotel property requires a Com1000 (or the new com2000) headend system or you would like to take advantage or the DIRECTV Residential Experience, DIRECTV has new headend systems (Com2000) and set top boxes that will save you money.

Energy Savings with DIRECTV Headend Systems

When it was released in 2009, the Technicolor Com1000 HD headend utilized by DIRECTV was revolutionary in terms of its energy and space consumption. The new Com2000 chassis drops power consumption to just 225W, lower than the Com1000 headend and just a fraction of what a large cable or standard definition headend chassis would require. The new receiver cards can have up to 8 channels per card which maximizes your power efficiency. The savings for your hotel can be substantial.

Energy Savings with the DIRECTV Residential Experience

The DIRECTV Residential Experience for Hotels utilizes DIRECTV H25 (c41) receiver which uses 50% of the energy the HD receiver it replaces. The H25 is the most energy efficient receiver available in hotels and is so light that it sticks easily to the back of a TV with industrial velcro. It’s so small that it could fit in the gap in your wall mount. Because the power supply is outside the box, it runs more reliably.

As DIRECTV continues to deploy the RVU remote user interface technology, you can look forward even greater energy savings in the future.  RVU technology ( drives down energy consumption even further by enabling a receiver-less connection to compatible RVU client devices including Smart TV models from Samsung, Sony, Toshiba and others.
