Exton, PA (PRWEB) June 19, 2008 -–
SuiteLinq, Inc. and Nighthawk Systems have formed a working relationship to market a new set-top box middleware product that will deliver both video and interactive content in hospitality environments. The new “SLice” unit will enable hotels to serve to each guest room a variety of services including traditional digital video signals, Video-On-Demand content, and rich-media interactive portals, all of which are offered by SuiteLinq.
SuiteLinq is a leading provider of entertainment, connectivity and productivity solutions designed to deliver a truly home-like experience to guests in hospitality environments. The company specializes in designing and deploying custom branded portals that give guests the ability to access the Internet; interact with the hotel; find local businesses and attractions; and stay productive. The portal also serves as a powerful means for the property to communicate with and market to their guests during their stay. SuiteLinq’s SuiteVODTM and SuiteCastTM services provide a variety of free and pay-per-view television content in standard and high definition formats.
Nighthawk Systems designs and manufactures the advanced line of MediaPro IP set-top boxes designed for a wide range of verticals, including hospitality. SLice will be the exclusive private label brand of the combined function device for SuiteLinq’s hospitality clients using the SuiteLinq interactive portal and SuiteVOD service delivered over the in-room digital television. SuiteLinq will continue to use Nighthawk’s IP3000 set-top box for properties using SuiteVOD only.
With the release of SLice, hotel operators will have a single multifunction middleware solution that equips each guest room for the digital amenities of today and the future. According to SuiteLinq’s President, Craig Ziegler, SLice meets a growing market demand for flexible, expandable middleware devices, stating, “We know that guests already have high expectations when it comes to digital and interactive content available in their room. This demand will only grow and morph with the advance of technology. It’s critical that hoteliers be ready to meet this demand and do so with maximum efficiency. SLice gives them and us the means to deliver video, interactive, and more well into the future.”
