In-room entertainment solution with casting for hotels and hospitality

Casting: The content your guests want

Online media streaming is the new norm for in-room entertainment as hotel guests move away from traditional pay TV and VOD (video on demand) to personal media subscriptions and SVOD (subscription video on demand). In addition to video, guests also use subscription-based music, news and game services on a daily basis.

With Hibox CastGate the guest experience is improved by allowing guests to use their own media subscriptions like Netflix, YouTube, Spotify, Amazon Prime Video and Hulu on the hotel TV. Guests can cast from all mobile devices such as smartphones, tablets and laptops.

As part of the extended Smartroom family, CastGate can be bundled with our complete hospitality TV system, delivering a comprehensive digital guest experience.

Super easy and intuitive connection to the hotel TV By using QR code technology, your guests can easily connect their personal devices to the in-room TV and stream their favorite content on the big screen. Movies, TV shows, music and news can all be cast to the TV through the guest's own pre-installed apps.

Casting through CastGate and Chromecast

Our casting solution is powered by the Castgate and Google Chromecast.

The Hibox CastGate is a physical hardware server that controls the network access between the guests’ own devices and the Chromecast behind the TV. This allows using the Chromecast in consumer mode just like at home, without the limitations of the Chromecast guest mode.

Guests use info on the TV screen to pair their devices with the Chromecast, so they can only use the Chromecast in the same room, allowing for a secure connection that protects the privacy of your hotel guests.

As always, we developed this product in-house by ourselves, which allows us to quickly update the functionality if required. Most other companies buy the Chromecast management as a third-party service.

Hibox CastGate is a multi-purpose product Since the CastGate is a local server, it can also be used for other purposes like:
  • Hosting TV firmware for central firmware updates
  • Hosting movie clips for welcome videos
  • Building a coverage map for the guest wifi


Hibox CastGate is a truly multi-functional piece of hardware that simplifies the internal processes of your hotel tv system and improves the guest experience. Contact our TV Experts for more information by clicking the button below.
