Omni Nashville Hotel has announced that iBAHN will install IPTV (Internet Protocol Television) services throughout the property’s guestrooms. In 2012, iBAHN was selected as the vendor of IPTV for Omni Hotels & Resorts. The Nashville property will be the second installation of iBAHN IPTV services, with the first being Omni’s flagship property in Dallas in late 2012. The Omni Nashville Hotel, which will open in the fall of 2013, is an authentic expression of Nashville’s vibrant music culture, is adjacent to the new Music City Center and will fully integrate with an expansion of the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum® on three levels. The 800-room property features 80,000 square feet square-feet of flexible meeting space, six food, beverage and retail outlets, a signature Mokara Spa, and rooftop pool deck.
With iBAHN’s IPTV solution, guests at the Omni Nashville Hotel will be treated to 44 high-definition channels on the in-room televisions and a 16-channel line up in the fitness center. They will be able to download the iBAHN hotel app and use their own smartphone or tablet to control the TV and view the program guide. The platform also enables the connected music guest to enjoy downloading music streams and other entertainment. In addition to providing a vast array of entertainment options, iBAHN’s customizable platform allows the hotel to extend the Omni brand through the television platform. Leveraging a 100% CAT6 infrastructure, the Omni Nashville Hotel has invested in a purely IP backbone. Because it is IP-enabled, the iBAHN solution integrates with the property management system (PMS) and allows for a truly interactive experience.
