Quadriga has announced that its successful pre-pay TV solution SmoovieTV now supports LG Pro:Centric V TV. Following the acquisition of SmoovieTV in September 2011 Quadriga has focused on securing its compatibility with all of the major hospitality sector TV providers, ensuring it can offer the solution to the broadest range of customers.
SmoovieTV enables hospitality customers to turn their guest TV into a revenue stream, either by renting access to the TV or charging for an extended range of TV channels.
It also provides an ideal solution for hotels that focus on the lower cost stay option for guests and for those properties who do not wish to invest in an integrated guest communication and entertainment platform. Additionally, it allows guests to pay for what they want – a model which has been adopted successfully by the airline industry.
Roger Taylor, CEO Quadriga, commented: "We are delighted to extend our partnership with LG to encompass our SmoovieTV solution. As a specialist integrator to the hospitality sector our focus is to provide the broadest range of solutions and expert guidance to effectively match appropriate technology to business need. We have been most impressed with how LG has worked hard to develop and now deliver a strong solution for our customers, embracing both SmoovieTV and the impressive features of its Pro:Centric V TV range.
Quadriga customers can now benefit from the wealth of promotional features offered by LG’s Pro:Centric V TV, including a welcome page, hotel customisation and information and TV channel guide. In addition, with the ability to support video output, customers can elect to incorporate their own hotel video, or, with minimum costs and no need for additional hardware, deliver the basic ‘SmoovieTV Guide’, providing a powerful new promotional and guest communication channel.
According to Shawn Kim, head of LG B2B Operation Europe: "For those properties seeking to deliver a lower cost guest communication solution, the combination of Quadriga’s SmoovieTV and the Pro:Centric V TV offers a compelling proposition. The ability to customise to the hotel and the extensive range of promotional capabilities ensures that Quadriga and LG together are able to deliver the ideal solution. In addition we are working towards featuring compatibility with Quadriga’s SmoovieTV across more LG TV models in the future, enabling us to bring these benefits to a broader range of hospitality customers."
