Princess Cruises has partnered with UIEvolution, Inc. to deploy the technology platform Guest Evolution on the new-generation Royal Princess, the newest ship in the Princess fleet that set sail on its main voyage June 16, 2013.
UIEvolution's Guest Evolution delivers the world's first HTML5 based TV solution to passenger and crew TVs, as well as to digital signs throughout the ship. Features for passengers and crew on the maiden voyage include live TV, ship channels, free-to-guest video and music on demand.
Harbour Marine Systems (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.
UIEvolution's Guest Evolution features a browser-based smart TV application on interactive TVs that can be extended to support a host of innovative features such as:
-- Screen shifting live TV, movies and music to the passenger's smartphone or tablet
-- On-board mapping and routing
-- Information on ship activities, shore excursions and port guides with the ability for passengers to book from their in-cabin TV, smartphone or tablet
