ELMSFORD, NY, (PRWEB) June 10, 2004
InfoValue Computing, Inc. ("InfoValue"), experts in broadband video streaming, today announced it has installed its SuiteTV solution at Mandarin Oriental Hotel GroupÂs new luxury site in Washington, D.C. The Washington, D.C. site is the second Mandarin Oriental Hotel to use SuiteTV to power the highest quality high-definition in-room entertainment system. In December 2003, Mandarin Oriental opened the doors of its Manhattan luxury hotel and introduced its guests to InfoValueÂs digital, state-of-the-art solution for services ranging from high-definition movies-on-demand to interactive digital TV.
The Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group, an award-winning owner and operator of some of the world's most prestigious hotels and resorts, implements its revolutionary entertainment system for its North American Mandarin Oriental properties jointly with InfoValueÂs SuiteTV solution and General Dynamics InteractiveÂs Intrigue system. The successes of the New York City and Washington, D.C., properties have accelerated Mandarin OrientalÂs plan to upgrade additional Mandarin Oriental properties.
Nick Price, Group CIO/CTO for the Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group, said, "Our guests naturally expect only the best from us. InfoValue provides the core technology that lets us more than exceed these expectations. InfoValue's system is state of the art, reliable and scalable. Mandarin Oriental intends to stay at the forefront of high quality in-room entertainment as we clearly see the link to improved guest satisfaction."
SuiteTV features QuickVideo servers, InfoValue's award winning and performance leading streaming platform, and a comprehensive set of seamlessly integrated and customizable functions tailored specifically for hospitality providers. The SuiteTV solution has been rigorously field tested and proven in more than seven leading hotel chains and several thousand rooms worldwide.
SuiteTV enables the easiest, fastest leap-forward for delivering compelling services that generate new revenues, increase occupancy rates, and simultaneously reduce operational expenses. "We are excited to continue to support Mandarin Oriental's revolutionary in-room entertainment with our proven technologies and expertise," said Aubrey Flanagan, Vice President, Business Development and Solutions.
