Exterity extends Sony partnership with built-in Chromecast support
Exterity and Sony announced their partnership will be extended as work on the integration between Exterity’s ArtioGuest interactive guest experience portal and the latest Sony BRAVIA professional TVs continues.
With a built-in Chromecast feature, there is no need for any external third party devices and services with the latest Sony professional TVs. ArtioGuest, with its direct access to the Sony built-in Chromecast functionality, securely connects Sony TVs, Chromecast services and the guest’s mobile device, while protecting the user’s personal data.
Exterity regional director for Asia Pacific Jamie Hind says the partnership opens up whole new markets for its smart TVs.
“ArtioGuest is the basis for us moving more into accommodation across Asia Pacific across a number of sectors including hotels, cruise ships, healthcare and aged care; it’s a diverse industry for us and we have the flexibility to address both shared and differing requirements. Discerning, tech-savvy travellers expect a ‘better than home’ in-room technology experience, so it’s been exciting to work with Sony to integrate ArtioGuest with the built-in Chromecast feature of their hospitality TVs,” he says.
Sony Australia and New Zealand group manager for business and institutional solutions Daniel Hancox says the partnership has been focused more on the hospitality market.
“That’s based around the strength of the product solutions we both have, and seeing how we are exceeding the expectations of end users by what we’re presenting together. This includes Chromecast onboard in our Sony BRAVIA professional range, which enables guests to bring what they’re used to at home into the hotel room and cast seamlessly to the TV. It represents a big leap forward in terms of technology from where it is today – it’s where the future lies and what our customers are demanding,” he says.
