What is a hospitality TV?
A hospitality TV is a type of commercial grade television with features that support a hotel's TV system. Depending on the type of television system the hotel may have and how the is the in-suite television content is presented in guest rooms, there are 4 different categories of hotel televisions that can function in a hotel TV system: Basic (Non-Pro:idiom), Pro:idiom, b-LAN and Smart TVs.
What is Pro:Idiom?
Pro:Idiom is a technology hotels and hospitality TVs implement in order to encrypt and protect the transmission of premium channels (such as, ESPN and Disney) to guests.
What is the difference between hospitality TV and normal TV?
The biggest difference is with the warranty. A warranty for a household TV will not cover its use in a commercial setting (hotel, retail store, etc), therefore, the cost of any issues and repairs under warranty must be paid for by the hotel. Additionally, hospitality TVs are designed specifically for prolonged use in a commercial setting.
