As an important first step into the digitalised future, Casa Berno has implemented blue TV Host together with Swisscom and its local partner, Swissbix SA. Since then, guests from Switzerland and abroad have been able to enjoy their favourite programmes, choosing from a huge selection in different languages. As Bruno Caratsch explains, however, blue TV Host can do a lot more: “We can provide our guests with interesting information through our own info channel on the home page of the room devices. Firstly, the virtual hotel guide brings you closer to what is available on the ground, such as the wellness facilities, restaurant, shuttle bus or hiking tours. Guests can also call up the operating instructions for the air conditioning or the full guest information folder using the QR codes displayed. That saves us a lot of time.”
blue TV Host even enables internal events to be broadcast live. “I can well imagine that we will broadcast our jazz concerts live to the room devices, for example,” says Bruno Caratsch. On the other hand, the high-performance guest WLAN, which is also included in blue TV Host, is not part of a future wish-list – it’s already a must-have for any four-star hotel.
