Revolutionary new AirCast Red Button TV information system to be launched to Hotels at Hospitality 2011 - Interactive Guest Information System

Airwave will launch their new product, 'AirCast' at the Hospitality Show, at the NEC on the 24-26th January 2011.

Sharp Hospitality Televisions and Hotel Information System are a winner for The Cumberland Hotel - Bournemouth

When the owners of The Cumberland Hotel in Bournemouth were looking to upgrade his analogue system to digital, they turned to the team at Airwave for advice. The first hurdle was to upgrade the existing TV infrastructure in Bournemouth’s only purpose build Art Deco hotel to accommodate the new digital signals, which was completed at a much lower cost than originally expected. To compliment a major refurbishment programme in the last year, new TV’s were sought to complete the update. The hotel now boasts 127 of the latest Sharp Hotel mode LCD screens, some even with built in DVD. These DVDs however have been specially selected as they are modular and therefore easy to replace without necessarily removing the screen. (This is important as DVDs can suffer a higher failure rate than TV screens). To complete the solution, Airwave has also installed the new Airsign Hotel Information Channel, which highlights the hotels many services and facilities.
