What uses 164 OLED hotel TVs, 15 OLED Wallpaper displays, Pro:Idiom® digital rights management in smart mirrors and an LG HVAC system to enhance the guest experience?
The answer is Marriott’s newest Autograph Collection property, The Sinclair in Fort Worth, Texas.
The Sinclair is the world’s first hotel to run almost entirely on Power-over-Ethernet (PoE), and is an early adopter of LG OLED hotel TV display technology, with a 55-inch model in every room. LG OLED technology harnesses the capability to dazzle guests – the TVs are renowned for superior picture quality with perfect black, infinite contrast, intense color, wide viewing angle and groundbreaking design. And the razor-thin 65-inch LG OLED 4K UHD Wallpaper displays are perfect for public spaces because of that wide viewing angle – regardless of where you’re sitting in the room, the display turns virtually any blank space into a new canvas for digital art or engaging content.
The LG OLED hotel TVs and Wallpaper displays also offer the ability to perform basic maintenance and update procedures for all the TVs/displays remotely, and simple connection to guests’ personal streaming service accounts.
During these challenging times, the hospitality industry is seeking effective and efficient ways to promote guest safety and keep visitors informed during their stays, while also maintaining brand luxury standards and improving the overall guest experience to remain competitive. With the OLED TVs in every guest room and OLED Wallpaper displays around the property, The Sinclair is both raising the standard of in-room entertainment and providing a captivating solution to clearly communicate safety protocols protecting guests and staff.
In the guest room bathrooms are 21-inch models of the touchscreen Savvy™ SmartMirror™ from Electric Mirror, integrated with LG’s Pro:Idiom digital rights management technology. Pro:Idiom unlocks access to premium HDTV content from cable, satellite or video on demand (VOD) services. The smart mirrors deliver TV programming and custom hotel content.
The hotel also required individual control of its HVAC system throughout the 164 guestrooms (featuring 50 different room types) and heating and cooling for the lobby bar, reception area and large basement restaurant. The hotel management team identified LG as a company that was able to fulfill myriad HVAC needs, and create a full building ecosystem with its range of cutting-edge technologies across an expansive portfolio. LG’s award-winning Multi™ V IV Heat Recovery Units were selected for their ability to provide individual room comfort for each space within the larger property. The Multi V IV also contributes to the building’s energy efficiency, high performance and flexibility in design and installation options.
