West Pond Hospitality Solutions

Hospitality Example

Our goal of West Pond's hospitality products is to enhance product features, and reduce the total cost of ownership, of in-house RF-TV networks. As such, our devices are designed to bring new life to your existing equipment and coax infrastructure by economically enabling new features. Our MX-400HY does just that.

With 4 tuners, 4 QAM modulators, and our integrated Transport Stream multiplexer, the MX-400HY provides the ability to cherry pick subscription free HD TV programming from terrestrial broadcasts and add them to your guest TV network.

Redundant network channels ensure uninterrupted service in the event of satellite rain fade or cable outages.

Solid state video streaming capability will create all the hotel channels you need. Hotel channels provide guests with information about hotel services, local attractions, events, and more. They can even be used for lobby signage. This easy to use solution extracts and formats video from the HDMI/Analog video input, PPT files, TS file, DVDs, and more.

TV network monitoring and maintenance. The built-in QAM tuner monitors the network for channel map changes, signal dropout and more. These features record events and statistics and alerts the person of your choice via email should attention be needed.

Map IP enabled security cameras onto hidden channels for private access throughout the facility.

TV controls and digital signage. The MX-400HY will use the coax wire to send data and commands to West Pond receivers, players, and TV controllers such as the RX-WP100. If you have your own device, the FlexDK can be used to enable it to receive data over coax.

International options including a wide variety of tuners and modulators including ISDB-T, DVB-T, and DVB-S2.

The MX-400HY is specially designed for locations looking to add value to their coax infrastructure such as hotels, hospitals, nursing homes, and educational facilities. This device can create in house TV channels that display on existing TVs, or special purpose TVs such as digital signage. When used in conjunction with a West Pond receiver such as the Rx-WP100, the video channel, L-Bar advertisement, and display power can be controlled remotely from the MX-400HY Web UI. But perhaps the most important feature is our manageability. This device has dual QVGA panels and can display 60 fps video, so you donít need a TV to see a channel in the control room. If thatís not enough, our cable monitor system will monitor the in house TV network and alert you on common errors.

We want this to be the best hospitality product in your rack. If there is a feature you need, we will add it for you.
