Samsung has announced that Samsung Hospitality TV is getting AirPlay support, allowing hotel guests to easily connect iOS and iPadOS devices to the TVs in their rooms. This follows the launch of AirPlay at over 60 IHG Hotels and Resorts via LG.

Guests will be able to enjoy the convenience of watching their favorite shows and movies from popular streaming services, listening to personal playlists on various music platforms, viewing photos, practicing presentations, playing games and more on the TV in their room. By simply scanning a unique, on-screen QR code, guests can privately and securely connect their iPhone or iPad to the Samsung Hospitality TV.

The company says no personal information is ever stored or saved and all information about paired devices is automatically erased upon guest checkout. Additionally, hotel managers and operators can easily update their management systems to enable AirPlay technology, simplifying the integration process.

"Samsung is committed to building a robust and connected ecosystem that enhances convenience, usability, and overall guest experience," said Hoon Chung, Executive Vice President of Visual Display Business at Samsung Electronics. "AirPlay allows both iPhone and iPad users to easily share their favorite content on the big screen in their hotel room, making their temporary stay at a hotel feel more like home. LYNK Cloud and SmartThings Pro also give hotel management better business insights while making their operations more seamless and efficient."

Apple AirPlay will first be available in HBU8000 model and will be sequentially supported on other existing models. Samsung's latest hospitality TVs also include LYNK Cloud and SmartThings Pro for enhanced connectivity, management and guest experience.

For hotel managers and operators, LYNK Cloud is a comprehensive cloud solution for Samsung Hospitality TVs that offers customizable content, remote device management and access to OTT entertainment. Equipped with an e-commerce platform, LYNK Cloud provides an in-room ordering system that offers guests interactive services such as booking hotel services, ordering room service, a digital concierge and more, all bundled in solution. With LYNK Cloud, hotel managers can also use insights to personalize content and experiences for hotel guests to create impactful promotional content across different rooms or properties worldwide.

SmartThings Pro brings enhanced connectivity to hotel managers, delivering more interoperability and security with IoT devices in their properties. Hotel IT managers can connect and control Samsung smart devices throughout the hotel, such as Hospitality TVs, Smart Signage, air conditioning systems and more IoT devices through one efficient dashboard. The SmartThings Pro Dashboard enhances multi-unit management, device performance monitoring — all designed with scalability and developer-friendly integration in mind. To meet the diverse set of hotel partners' needs, SmartThings Pro also offers customizable Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) for seamless integration with existing systems, and a customizable dashboard.
