Hotel TV ConnectivityAll TVs need an IP network connection to the Hibox Centre Server. There are many ways to create the connection, each with pros and cons depending on the building and its existing infrastructure.
Connecting over a fixed IP-network is the preferred method, because it's fastest and most reliable. The TV channels can be multicast in the same network, or carried by coaxial cables.
If the TV signal is carried by a coaxial cables, the TVs can also be connected to the server through a wireless network. With this method, only the interactive functionality uses the wireless connection.
We can also provide an advanced solution for extending the IP network by utilizing existing coaxial cabling. In this case, both the TV channels and the IP traffic are carried by coaxial cables.
