Televisions are no longer just playback devices: they provide information about what the hotel has to offer, play Netflix and serve as a design element - and they are also becoming more sustainable.
The use of streaming services is becoming increasingly commonplace for guests. Technical innovations in the TV sector, such as the trend towards ultra high definition (UHD), and the individualisation of media usage are also gaining ground in the hotel sector are gaining momentum throughout the electronics sector. Devices should be repaired and not simply replaced. Energy efficiency therefore also remains an important issue. The durability of technical equipment is very important to ensure that the hotelier's investment pays off in the long term. In addition to Chromecast, i.e. the ability to mirror content from a smartphone or laptop to the TV, compliance with the GDPR is also emphasised. After departure, all guests' personal data should be deleted from the TV. In addition, special hotel modes with functions such as menu locks and volume limitation could make work easier for hoteliers and eliminate some annoyances in advance.
While some hotels even do without TVs altogether for conceptual or aesthetic reasons, for others they are a design element. No wonder: the new devices are aesthetically pleasing and have a shallow installation depth. Ambient functions such as those offered by Samsung even allow televisions to become a digital digital mural or photo display. But despite all the gadgets and refinements, one thing is particularly important: ease of use. This cannot be intuitive enough, because guests have different levels of knowledge. Having to spend a long time familiarising themselves with the hotel technology during their stay can definitely spoil the guest experience.
