MCOMS Cloud TV technology brings together hotel guests and local artists in Brooklyn, New York
Brooklyn, New York, April 9, 2017
The iconic Wythe Hotel on the Williamsburg waterfront in Brooklyn, NY selected MCOMS HOTstream luxury hospitality suite to provide a cloud based TV solution for its guests.
The Wythe hotel has chosen to install the HOTstream Cloud TV solution, where everything runs on Amazon WS and is delivered to in-room TVs over the Internet, eliminating the need to acquire and maintain on-premise expensive hardware. Through HOTstream Cloud the hotel has the full suite of MCOMS HOTstream up and running instantly, including Free-to-Guest TV, PMS integration, Video-on-demand and OTT services.
In parallel the guests have access to Interactive TV services, including hotel services such as view bill, reservations, express check out and hotel messages, hotel facilities information, news, weather reports, travel guides, and access to OTT content from Hulu, Crackle and YouTube on guestroom TVs.
Located in the heart of Brooklyn, the Wythe Hotel is an 8-story hotel on the Williamsburg waterfront. Built in 1901, a former cooperage has been meticulously converted into the 70-room hotel with a restaurant and rooftop bar by restaurateur Andrew Tarlow. As an anchor to Brooklyn’s most dynamic neighborhood, the Wythe often collaborates with local artists and artisans on the programming.
Among the many unique features that were designed and especially customized for the Wythe hotel, there is a Free-to-Guest cloud VOD service with content from ART21, to bring together the local art community and the Wythe’s guests. Art21 is a celebrated global leader in presenting thought-provoking and sophisticated content about contemporary art, and the go-to place to learn first-hand from the artists of our time.
Peter Lawrence, the owner of Wythe Hotel noted; “Getting the right technology in hotel rooms is a fast moving target to hit. That technology must be simple to use, have depth and breadth of potential uses, interface seamlessly with existing systems, AND strengthen the guest’s enjoyment and understanding of the hotel’s version of hospitality. MCOMS brought flexibility, patience and determination to this project and I am very pleased with the result.”
