Guide to Guest Room TV Interface

Below is detailed information about our In-Room Entertainment User Interface as well as the next steps for your property. We'll be working together to develop the on-screen hotel directory.

 

Theme Development Process

Assets
Content provided to Enseo that is used to develop the on-screen hotel directory. Assets need to be delivered to the Enseo Marketing Team before the on-screen hotel directory can be created.

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

Review & Approval
Properties will have the opportunity to review the on-screen hotel directory and submit any edits or changes needed 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.

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 $150 per hour, with a 2 hour minimum.

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.

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.
