Princess Cruises has partnered with UIEvolution to deploy the Guest Evolution technology platform on the Regal Princess, the newest ship in the Princess fleet that set sail on its maiden voyage May 20, 2014. Guest Evolution™ offers Princess Cruises the capability of providing a full IPTV experience with greater personalization and e-commerce capabilities.
UIEvolution's Guest Evolution™ delivered the world's first HTML5 based TV solution in 2013, when it was deployed to passenger and crew cabin TVs and digital signs on the Royal Princess. This latest deployment of Guest Evolution™ on Regal Princess continues the offering of an already terrific guest experience once more.
Guest Evolution™ platform's features include live TV, ship channels, and video and music on demand. The solution can be extended to support a host of additional innovative features such as:
A vast library of free-to-guest video and premium movie content
Easy scheduling and distribution of video produced onboard during the cruise
Open HTML5 architecture that allows easy loading of additional web apps as desired to continually expand platform capabilities across in-cabin entertainment TVs and digital signs
On-board ship location, mapping and routing
Multimedia information on ship activities, shore excursions and port guides
Streaming radio channels
Fully localized options for native language and accessibility
VIDELIO-HMS engineered, installed and commissioned the platform, providing a seamless integration with other relevant systems onboard. Their state-of-the-art infotainment integration for Princess adds a new perspective to their passengers' digital experience onboard.
