Main Feature & Benefits 1: Definition System/Architecture
The introduction of cutting-edge technology enables hotels and resorts to deliver a differentiated guest experience. One prominent example is the transformation of in-room hotel televisions into a control hub capable of communicating with multiple integrated displays.
As the latest evolution in hotel management, Samsung’s LYNK Reach 4.0 fuses the benefits of Samsung’s SINC and REACH hospitality technologies to offer a comprehensive content management solution. LYNK Reach 4.0 creates a more convenient and pleasurable experience by giving staff and guests greater control over different aspects of the in-room environment, ranging from personalized communications to more efficient room management.
As a unified CMS solution, LYNK REACH 4.0 accommodates existing LAN, WIFI and coaxial infrastructures to amplify hotel management, monitoring and guest service functions. Through guest data storage and customized templates, hospitality users can create and deliver personalized guest messages for a more memorable experience. This includes access to a range of IPTV and RF channels, applications and services mirroring what guests expect at home and on their mobile devices.
LYNK REACH 4.0 additionally enables two-way communication between hotel management and guests, ensuring quality service delivery with less in-room labor and maintenance required. By controlling in-room conditions ranging from power usage to connectivity, hospitality environments additionally can reduce energy costs and device clutter.
With optimized network support for a variety of channels, Samsung’s LYNK Reach 4.0 helps premium hotels and resorts deliver a personalized guest experience and strengthen their bottom line.
Increase Hotel Brand and Offerings Visibility with a Welcome Video Channel
LYNK REACH 4.0 allows hotels to use Welcome Video Channels to deliver useful information to guests in a more engaging way. Through easy video upload or URL insertion, hotel managers can customize a channel list of clips showing hotel facilities or advertising special offers, local events or attractions. As a result, hotels can use up to four channels to simultaneously show targeted videos to specific public areas of the hotel, such as display in lobbies and restaurants, as well as in guest rooms. The ability to stream these promotions provides an additional revenue stream for hotels and enhances brand recognition.
Enhance the Guest Experience with Easy Access to Valuable, Real-time Information
With LYNK REACH 4.0, hotels can provide guests with a specialized experience built around their schedules or reasons for staying. Guests can easily access web, video and app content including hotel services, tourist information, weather reports, flight information and more with multiple-language support on their HG55NE478BF. For example, TVs in conventioneers’ rooms can display a custom UI and menu specific to the convention, including event locations, meeting alerts and entertainment options. In addition, videos and images promoting local event and tourist information, available discounts, and more can be displayed for quick and easy guest access.
Treat guests with a customized, cost-efficient Home Menu
Deliver a wide array of content to guests with an enhanced Home Menu that does not require the additional purchase of a solution or installation of a network infrastructure. New enhanced features enable hotels to welcome guests with a brief video introduction along with the hotel logo before offering live TV. This way, hotels can enhance their brand without the need of an additional solution. Guests can conveniently view resources such as the time, date and hotel information, and access frequently used TV features in user mode. The customizable Home Menu reduces the cost burden for hotels that lack the budget for an additional solution while simplifying Home Menu creation with a solution-embedded HG55NE478BF.
Protect content with advanced DRM technology
Samsung LYNK DRM technology provides a safe and cost-effective alternative to traditional hardware-based content protection systems. The solution allows encrypted live channel and VoD content to pass securely and display on the HG55NE478BF. A software-only implementation, LYNK DRM technology reduces the need for additional equipment and provides quicker recovery for Conditional Access System (CAS) problems. To help ensure system reliability, coverage extends to the enlargement of head-end equipment for cable operators.
Enjoy More Efficient Installation through Improved Plug-and-Play Capabilities
In a busy hospitality environment, time spent on display installation and maintenance is time that could otherwise be devoted to more critical growth-related activities. Through advanced plug-and-play settings, hotel managers can activate hundreds of in-room displays with minimal effort required. Operations teams simply have to navigate three basic launch settings to synchronize multiple displays and servers while also defining connectivity and language needs:
• Basic Setup: A user-friendly interface lets hospitality managers define the language, picture and tuning, and clock settings.
• Cloning Mode: To further enhance multi-display control, hotel managers can replicate communication and content delivery functionalities across all on-site displays. Once the cloning process is complete, users can activate their displays without requiring any further installations or compatibility confirmation.
• Factory Mode: Hotel managers additionally can customize advanced display operations, such as audio parameters and connectivity settings, through an easy-to-access factory mode portal.
The plug-and-play functionalities also enable certain non-hospitality environments to enjoy the same content and system management benefits. A unique Commercial Mode setting accommodates the specialized requirements of commercial users, such as government and education entities, without compromising performance.
System Integrator (SI) compatibility
Gain unique and strong display content management with Security Mode on the HG55NE478BF. Using this feature, you can disable critical functions of the displays to easily prevent changes to the displays’ settings. You can also block non-compliant content or the transmission of unwanted Teletext (TTX) with a signal to maintain complete control of content on guest room displays, including input through HDMI® and USB ports. This feature is also highly beneficial for controlling displays in environments that require tight security, such as prisons.
Provide guests with an excellent view of the HG55NE478BF from anywhere in the room with a TV stand. The stand provides a flexible 20º, 60º and 90º swivel support and ensure the TV remains firmly in place.
Sound Bar Compatibility
Couple a HG55NE478BF with a Sound Bar to let guests truly enjoy hearing their programming. Connected by a High-Definition Multimedia Interface® cable, settings are automatically applied, making installation a breeze. A single remote lets guests have full control over both the TV and Sound Bar.
Increase guests’ TV-viewing enjoyment by eliminating annoying interference from other remote signals in applications, such as hotel fitness centers, where multiple TVs are in close proximity. The multi-code remote can control up to 10 TVs individually in the same room.
Enable guests to easily find and enjoy the programming of their choice without having to manually scroll through hundreds of TV channels. My Channel’s quick search function allows guests to find channels suited to their tastes, by country and genre.
Allow your guests to check the current time on the HG55NE478BF whenever needed. Software Clock is a clock display solution of in-room TVs using a remote control. The guests can easily check the time with the press of ‘Info’ button using the remote control, even when the TV is off.
Media entertainment including movies, music, and images come alive on the screen by simply plugging a USB drive directly into the HG55NE478BF.
