Porto Bay partners with Nonius for next generation in-room technology

Nonius is pleased to announce a new breakthrough partnership with Porto Bay Hotels & Resorts. Porto Bay Liberdade is Porto Bay Group’s new five-star hotel in Lisbon, located deep in the heart of downtown Lisbon, and right next to one of its busiest shopping districts.

The hotel, built from the ground up and designed by famed architect Frederico Valsassina, features 98 rooms where the past meets the present in an urban resort environment. Nonius Mobile app and a most up-to-date TV solution were chosen by the group to power its luxurious rooms.

NONIUS.TV now featuring Apple TV

During the past year, Nonius has worked on extending its in-room NONIUS.TV feature set to accommodate disruptive technologies such as streaming TV services. Now, it has come to pass. Porto Bay Hotels & Resorts is the first Nonius customer deploying Apple TV compatible NONIUS.TV solution running of the Samsung H-Browser platform.

Exponentially increasing the number of entertainment options available to hotel guests, the new Apple TV enabled NONIUS.TV will allow hotel guests to stream content directly from their personal devices (AndroidTM or iOS based), check local iTunes stores for new content, and take with them their favorite shows.

Compatible with both Miracast (Android) and AirPlay (Apple), the new technology provides a solution that the vast majority of travelers will be able to access from their smartphones or tablets.

“Combining the existing Nonius in-room technology feature set and expanding it with Apple TV, we are providing our guests with the most comprehensive in-room guest technology experience to date. Streaming their own content over their iOS or Android device, guests can carry their favorite shows or music and pipe it directly to the in-room system. Nonius is taking its hospitality technology one step further by providing multi-screen technology”, said Eng. José Carlos Silva, administrator at Porto Bay Hotels & Resorts.
