DENVER, CO--(Marketwire - January 28, 2013) - Roomlinx Inc. (OTCBB: RMLX), the innovative developer of media networks and interactive TV (iTV) applications for the hospitality industry, today announced the successful implementation and operation of Roomlinx iTV distributed via a Roomlinx installed and managed HSIA (High Speed Internet Access) network.
Roomlinx has now completed multiple property installations, totaling approximately 1,000 TV units, all providing high definition Interactive TV via the Roomlinx designed and installed 802.11n dual band 5Ghz networks.
According to Gary Sandhu, Roomlinx Vice President of Implementation, "The 5GHz wireless networks that Roomlinx is installing today provide enough distribution and capacity for every guest to simultaneously stream high definition (HD) content from our local, onsite servers, regardless of the external broadband connection available at the property. The successful implementation and operation of wireless distribution is a significant step forward in the process of migrating next-generation, guest-facing services and content into the cloud. It also opens the door for Roomlinx to expand guest content options beyond the TV to guest's personal devices, including smartphones, laptops, and tablets."
"This is a substantial advancement for Roomlinx. The ability to support large scale wireless distribution of our Interactive TV platform paves the way for us to provide many of the same new guest facing features, benefits, and next-gen services that we have traditionally provided over our wired networks," said Mike Wasik, Roomlinx's CEO. "The ability to bypass aging hotel infrastructure while increasing quality and quantity of guest services is expected to accelerate the adoption of our iTV platform and other next generation technologies throughout the hotel industry."
