Guide to the Guest Room TV Interface

Here you'll find an introduction to our in-room entertainment user interface as well as the next steps for your property. 

 

Theme Development Process

Assets
Assets must be delivered to the Enseo marketing team in order for the development process to begin. Content provided to Enseo will be used to create the theme and on-screen hotel directory.

Development
Once property assets have been delivered to the Enseo marketing team, our designers will begin development of the theme, on-screen hotel directory and other contracted features.

Review & Approval
Each property will have an edits and approval process allowing for any edits or changes that may need to be made prior to the final approved directory being published to the property. 

Testing
Final approval of the on-screen hotel directory will move the theme into testing. Testing ensures every component of the user interface is fully operational prior to being live onsite.

Launch
After your theme has successfully passed testing, our tech team will remotely publish it to your property with little to no interuption to your guests. Yay!

FAQs - Frequently Asked Questions

What is a theme?

A theme is the overall branded user interface. It consists of the welcome screen, channel guide, streaming apps and the on-screen hotel directory as well as other features purchased by your property.

What do I do after I deliver the assets?

After you receive confirmation that we have received all the assets, we’ll begin development of your theme and directory. Screenshots of your property directory will be provided for your review and final approval, before moving into testing.

After approval, how fast will the theme be pushed to the TVs?

Once the screenshots are approved, we’ll submit the theme to internal testing and the theme should be onsite within 3-5 business days.

Why do I need high resolution images?

Low resolution images will appear very pixelated and blurry from a TV in your guest's room. As we want the highest of quality for your property and your guest, we request that all images be high resolution with a minimum of 2MB at 300 dpi, and in a JPEG, PNG or TIFF format.

Please note: if an image does not fit the quality standard, our team will notify you.

Will I be able to review/approve the on-screen hotel directory before it launches on property?

Yes. Every property will have an opportunity to review and make edits to their on-screen hotel directory prior to publication.

Can I make changes to our hotel directory?

Every property will have an opportunity to review and make changes to their property's theme prior to publishing live to the property. Any change requests after the final approved theme has been published are subject to a change fee of $450, which includes one hour for design work and one hour for testing and publishing to the property. Work exceeding two hours is $150 per additional hour.

What are House Channels?

A House Channel is a channel within the guide that can play video(s) on loop. The videos can be promotional videos, brand videos, or property-specific or seasonal videos. The video can stream to any screen within the UI such as the Welcome Screen, Hotel Directory, etc. Ask your marketing contact today if you’re looking to add videos.

Can I add Dining Menus to the directory and do they count as a page?

Yes, Food & Beverage menus can be added as well as Spa Services, Room Service and more. Each menu screen counts as a Hotel Directory page. If you’re interested in adding menus, please provide the original creative doc if possible, and we’ll send screenshots for you to review. Additional hotel directory pages are available for purchase.
