More on digital signage solutions for hotels
Yesterday I talked tongue in cheek about robots as potential digital signage platforms as they move about the property to make deliveries to hotel guest rooms. It’s possible, more likely probable, over the longer term. I want to point out that digital signs are already everywhere in hotels for way finding and for promotional purposes, meeting room notices, menus, welcoming and for back-of-house employee communications. Hotel digital signs are also being used to post Internet-updated shuttle and city bus schedules, airline schedules and delays, and any number of dynamic information sources for convention and leisure hotels.
The displays themselves are already on the move in elevators and the digital signage networks are connected to the cable head ends that feed the guest room information channels, as well as video walls, pedestal displays and outdoor displays. We’re just scratching the surface on digital signage solutions for hotels.
