  • News
Exterity & Sony Partnership

Earlier today, Exterity and Sony announced that they have been collaborating together on a solution to integrate Exterity’s ArtioGuest® interactive guest experience portal with the latest Sony BRAVIA® professional TVs. The goal of being able to provide a best in class service to hotel operators and guests.

The built-in Chromecast functionality, found in the latest Sony professionalTVs, allows users to quickly and easily share content from subscription platforms including YouTube and Netflix from their smart devices. Having the functionality included in the TV removes the need for external Chromecast adapters. An integrated approach also greatly simplifies support and security concerns.

“ArtioGuest is the basis for us moving more into accommodation across Asia Pacific across a number of sectors including hotels, cruise ships, healthcare and aged care; it’s a diverse industry for us and we have the flexibility to address both shared and differing requirements. Discerning, tech-savvy travellers expect a ‘better than home’ in-room technology experience, so it’s been exciting to work with Sony to integrate ArtioGuest with the built-in Chromecast feature of their hospitality TVs.”

Jamie Hind, Regional Director for Asia Pacific at Exterity

“Since announcing our partnership last year, we’ve jointly been focusing on the hospitality market, based around the strength of the product solutions we both have, and seeing how we are exceeding the expectations of end users by what we’re presenting together. This includes Chromecast onboard in our Sony BRAVIA professional range, which enables guests to bring what they’re used to at home into the hotel room and cast seamlessly to the TV. It represents a big leap forward in terms of technology from where it is today – it’s where the future lies and what our customers are demanding.”

The two companies will look to showcase their integrated solutions at a number of upcoming key events across the region including InfoComm SEA that will be held in Bangkok during 15-17 May, 2019.
