Tivus, Inc. offers the leading edge of entertainment services technology for the hospitality industry. Through the use of advanced communication processing systems, Tivus enables hotels and resorts around the world to provide their guests with the widest range of entertainment and Internet options, while also providing a sophisticated platform for offering hotel services. For instance, the system can sense channels that are not currently being used, removing the signal until they are requested, thereby increasing the potential content carry of a given cable system.

Of special value to guests and the hotel is the increased security inherent in the system, increased guest comfort level and reduced hotel liability risks. In addition, the Tivus system can analyze traffic, identifying behavioral, geographical, and seasonal activity, opening the opportunity for highly focused advertising, for which vendors are willing to pay a premium. The result is that entertainment and Internet services which used to be considered a money drain can now become a direct revenue generator.

The Tivus solution includes the following guest features:

• International television channel lineup
• Up-to-date Video On Demand (VOD) services
• HD screen support
• Integrated hotel information services, including restaurant menus and housekeeping
• Event booking and hotel surveys
• Flight schedules of nearby airports
• Local weather information
• Messaging support and voice call displays

Integrated and scalable technology maximizes the potential of all of these services. The VOD service, for example, is customizable, supporting multiple regions and languages. It includes catalogs of available movie selections, along with transaction management, authorization and billing. This includes support of promotional pricing. Subscription assets can be offered at promotional pricing or for free, and the billing record will contain the promotional price. Pay-Per-View can be purchased as a single program or a package. Considering that a significant percentage of travellers request and expect comprehensive VOD, this alone can be an important draw.
