(BTV), a full-service provider of guestroom entertainment services and solutions for the hospitality industry, announced the implementation of its BeyondTV entertainment solution at the Mercure Albury, a boutique hotel located within Albury, Australia. A property that offers an ideal combination of luxury and country charm to provide guests with a warm and tranquil setting, Mercure Albury is also now able to address in-room entertainment expectations by providing user-friendly and instant access to personal streaming services on guestroom televisions via BeyondTV’s secure casting abilities. With BeyondTV, Mercure Albury can further ensure that each guest remains up-to-date on the latest hotel offerings and can maintain a priority on guest safety using the solution’s contactless service features.
Mercure Albury’s decision to implement BeyondTV resulted from the property’s recognition that today’s guests are now accustomed to fully personalizing their television viewing experience using platforms such as Google Chromecast or Amazon’s Fire Stick, and now expect to be able to access the same convenience when staying at a hotel. By implementing BeyondTV, Mercure Albury was able to leverage an advanced casting solution that is designed specifically for the unique needs of the hospitality industry. Compatible with virtually any hotel network or guestroom television, BeyondTV can provide each guest with the instant ability to effortlessly cast an array of apps from their personal devices, including Netflix, Amazon Prime, YouTube, Disney+, Spotify and Pandora. Guests can further leverage BeyondTV’s casting abilities to view social media accounts on a larger screen such as Facebook, LinkedIn or Twitter. As a comprehensive entertainment platform, guests staying at Mercure Albury can additionally leverage BeyondTV to surf the internet with the platform’s built-in web browser.
