We support screen casting and mirroring through:
Chromecast enables casting on Android and iOS devices, from streaming services like Netflix, Viaplay, HBO, Youtube and Spotify directly to the TV.
AirPlay enables 1:1 screen mirroring for iPhones, iPads and Apple laptops.
Miracast provides 1:1 screen mirroring on many Android and Windows devices.
Miracast is built into all current hotel TVs.
UPnP/DLNA is the third wireless possibility for mirroring images and videos from a mobile device to a TV.
A wired alternative is to use an HDMI cable.
All TVs need an IP network connection to the Hibox Centre Server. There are many ways to create the connection, each with pros and cons depending on the building and its existing infrastructure.
Connecting over a fixed IP-network is the preferred method, because it’s fastest and most reliable. The TV channels can be multicast in the same network, or carried by coaxial cables.
If the TV signal is carried by a coaxial cables, the TVs can also be connected to the server through a wireless network. With this method, only the interactive functionality uses the wireless connection.
We can also provide an advanced solution for extending the IP network by utilizing existing coaxial cabling. In this case, both the TV channels and the IP traffic are carried by coaxial cables.
Smartroom works with LG, Philips and Samsung hospitality TVs.
