Columbus, OH – January 23, 2018: Exceptional Innovation (EI) continues its long standing global partnership with Samsung Electronics to provide the hospitality industry with state-of-the-art guest engagement offerings. Together, the companies bring the latest platform technologies to hoteliers and guests through in-room television experiences powered by Tizen, Samsung’s cross-architecture open source software platform, in conjunction with EI’s iQx platform and integrated iQ solutions.
The combination of Tizen and iQx delivers a next generation technology experience that benefits hoteliers and guests anywhere on property. The Tizen 3.0 OS and 2017 Tizen-powered hospitality television models have been tested and certified as compatible with the iQ in-room smart television solution. The integrated iQ in-room solution provides hoteliers with greater choices based on hotel network and infrastructure requirements, and guests a fast, seamless in-room entertainment experience. Initial implementation sites in the US have been selected and deployments are planned for Q1 2018. EI will continue to certify additional US, European and Asia Pacific Tizen-powered TV models with the iQ in-room smart television solution as they become available throughout 2018 and beyond.
The Tizen 3.0 OS keeps guests connected with not only hospitality TVs, but also with mobile devices, smartwatches and more. “Samsung understands the direct correlation between quality guest engagement, loyalty and the appropriate application of innovative technologies,” says Jonas Tanenbaum, Vice President Sales and Marketing – Hospitality TV Division, Samsung Electronics America. “With increased connectivity through the Tizen and iQ platforms, guests and hoteliers will enjoy one of the latest, most intuitive and flexible hotel interfaces in the market.”
“Exceptional Innovation and Samsung Electronics have been working together globally for years to deliver next-generation technology platforms and entertainment experiences to hotel properties and their guests,” says Seale Moorer, CEO of Exceptional Innovation. “We look forward to continuing our partnership with Samsung to help hoteliers future-proof their in-room hotel entertainment investments as guests enjoy more of their own content through streaming capability and connection to multiple interactive devices at one time.”
