The Hotel Concord in New Hampshire took advantage of DVDO TILE’s easy installation and simple, but advanced user operation to provide state-of-the-art presentation facilities with minimal complexiity. The hotel has numerous meetings held in the various rooms, ranging from sales, to team or huddle room-type meetings as well as product or service team discussions. As the meetings often include corporate, product or service presentations that are heavy on visual elements, it was necessary to provide a flexible video integration component. The DVDO Tile unit is installed in a couple of locations in the hotel, including the Board Room space and a meeting room called “The Lobbyist”. By using the DVDO TILE, the hotel eliminated the installation hassle and cost of running HDMI and VGA cables across the room to the presenter’s location. In addition to the simple installation, TILE offers easy operation and greater functionality for guests and allows multiple users to present information on the meeting room screens at the same time, without having to share a single device or connection point. Installation and configuration of the DVDO TILE was simple, taking only 30 minutes in total to complete. The integrator merely had to assign a fixed DHCP address to the unit from the hotel’s Nomadix gateway and authenticate the DVDO TILE in the system to allow users access to it.
Guest Use 1: The Lobbyist
The hotel has a meeting area just off the main lobby called “The Lobbyist” that allows up to 24 people to meet and participate in meetings and discussions. The meeting area contains two (2) 43” LED TV’s connected via HDMI to the DVDO TILE, which is connected to the hotel’s guest WiFi network. Users then log onto the guest WIFI and use the TILE App to broadcast content to the DVDO TILE device, which then displays the content on both TV screens for dynamic presentations and group meeting collaborations.
Guest Use 2: Board Room
The hotel also has a boardroom meeting area that has a heavy workload, especially around primary and election season. This space can be setup as a meeting room, or in a typical boardroom configuration, making it perfect for brainstorming sessions or executive-level meetings and discussions. By adding the DVDO TILE to this location, the hotel eliminated the need to run additional cables across the room to the center of the conference table, or to the large-screen projector on the ceiling. As with the Lobbyist room, meeting participants can log into the hotel’s guest WiFi and use the TILE app to broadcast content to the projector. Up to 5 people can present information to the large screen at the same time, all managed by a meeting administrator, for incredibly dynamic and engaging meetings and discussions.
