Vodoke was honoured to be the main sponsor and speaker for this year’s Hotel Advanced Technology Forum hosted by Taiwan Distributor, Jinlong System Integration, at the impressive Okura Hotel on 16 March 2015. Vodoke was one of 10 sponsors, which included Schneider Electric, Dnet Solution, Zhone, Fashion Info Tech, Nova Media, Toshiba, Institute for Information Industry, Airtight Networks, and VIP Tech.
Initially planned with an expected 80-100 attendees – ranging from hotel owners to system integrators to technology providers active in the hospitality industry – the event succeeded in attracting a turn-out of well over 120, including delegates from Grand Hyatt, W Hotel, Miramar Hotel, Park Hotel Taipei and Le Meridien Taipei.
The Hotel Advanced Technology Forum explored the latest in innovative technologies to improve guest experience, enhance operational efficiencies and increase revenue per guest. The two-and-a-half-hour event featured presentations which covered LED screens, 4K Cameras, Media Hubs, AP Solutions, Optical Fiber Solutions and the Internet of Things.
The event commenced with welcome speeches from the organisers and esteemed guests, Jeng Fu Shen, Chairman of Jinlong; Nick Jane, General Manager of Jinlong; Der-Ming Chang, Chairman of Taiwan Hotel Technology Association (THTA); Alfred Hsu, Chairman of The Hotel Association of ROC; and Lo-Fen Chiu, Chairman of Taipei Hotel Association. These speeches were followed by a series of exciting technology presentations.
Of particular interest to the attendees was the announcement and subsequent ‘live’ demonstration of Vodoke’s latest product – VodokeBeam – by Vodoke CEO Michael Toh. The specially developed technology is the first ‘Bring Your Own Content’/’Bring Your Own Device’ (BYOC/BYOD) enterprise-grade solution for hotels with a secured back-end for monitoring and encrypted pairing. The technology enables guests to securely pair their personal device with the Vodoke Playstaq – a leading innovative set-top box – via a QR code or PIN. Once the pairing is successful, the guest can immediately share their videos, images, audio files or even YouTube clips directly on the TV set.
Attendees were also able to explore the multitude of content Vodoke has to offer at Vodoke’s designated booth. Hands-on experience included use of the Gen5 Remote Control, which allows easy navigation through the menu items, and playing a round of Angry Birds to fully experience the Gyroscope and G-Sensory technologies. Attendees were even able to use the Vodoke system to turn the lights on and off at the Schneider booth, demonstrating one function of the ‘Room Control’ feature which can also be used to control air-conditioning and curtains.
Kudos to Jinlong for organising a very successful event featuring interesting and relevant topics, a beautiful venue, and an exciting lucky draw – with amazing prizes being given away, such as an iPad Air 2 and a MacBook Air. Congratulations to all the winners!
