Sourcetoad’s entertainment system is a robust solution for movies-on-demand, music-on-demand, live television, and live music.
Our entertainment solution was designed to allow you to have centralized control over all entertainment content, while still remaining vendor agnostic. This means that you can have one vendor’s iTV system in some locations and another vendor’s system in others, and still be able to control all the content remotely. Viewing and listening analytics are then also aggregated as a whole, rather than on a per-vendor basis. This gives you the power to try new vendors or replace older systems without having to worry about lock-in or expensive refits.
Sourcetoad offers three options for in-room entertainment:
- Existing vendor integration
- Set-top boxes
- Smart TV interfaces.
Most modern interactive TV systems are web browser based — meaning that once the underlying server infrastructure is in place, redesigning interfaces can be done quickly and cost-effectively. Using this strategy, Sourcetoad can help you build a single interface that can run across your organization, regardless of the mix of technology it is delivered on. With very few changes, the same interface (using the same code base) can run on existing vendor hardware, new set-top boxes, and smart TVs.
This strategy allows for rapid updates and allows you to use the hardware and streaming vendors you are most comfortable with.
