You’re exhausted from travelling but relieved to get to your hotel room. It’s been a long day. You’re looking forward to being able to unwind, getting prepared for tomorrow. It’s a big day.
With your bag slung down and a quick raid of the mini-fridge, you flop out across the bed and kick off your shoes. What would be nice now is a movie. Something to help you relax. Yes. You just want to finally stop thinking for the next couple of hours.
Reaching for the remote, you start flicking. A few minutes later and you’re still flicking. You sit up. This is rubbish. Then a fond memory comes to mind – the series you were watching with your family before you left home.
Netflix is on your phone, but can you remember your password? Can you even get Netflix on this TV? Not sure you have the energy to go into battle with the remote control you consider just forgetting the idea.
But it’s okay. The hotel has Nomadix Casting. Your poor tired brain doesn’t need to remember passwords or contend with the annoying and lengthy struggle to input all your data on the tiny remote.
You’re already connected to the Wi-Fi. You scan the QR code on the screen, securely connect to the Netflix app on your phone, and start casting right away!
What a result! The perfect evening in, home-away-from-home! You have everything you need and you can just chill. With a great night’s rest, tomorrow is going to be a good day!
The challenge is always, how to provide the most secure, seamless and convenient guest experience. There are three things that are certain to continue to grow; the demand for that home-from-home consumer experience, the number of devices travellers bring with them, and guest expectations. How can the hospitality industry deliver that friction-free, five-star service that leads to rave reviews and repeat business? Well, it’s the small things actually.
Casting allows your guests to stream their own content directly to the hotel TV, much like they might at home. Guests can watch the latest episode of their favourite Netflix show, listen to music, a workout, a business training video or simply have the ability to view their own content in their own native language when abroad.
This should be effortless. Guests need to watch their own content stress-free, without having to log on to a public device, remember multiple passwords, or have to use an unfamiliar TV remote and slowly click through all the on-screen options to figure out how to connect. With Nomadix Casting, we make it simple.
Guests can easily and securely stream content from their own devices from over 2,000 apps, directly onto the in-room TV with one simple step – scanning an onscreen QR code. Once streaming of their chosen content begins, they can then even use their device to simultaneously browse the web, social media, answer emails or do online shopping – in fact, anything else they need to be getting on with, all the while the device will continue streaming their favourite show to the TV uninterrupted in the background.
