DENVER, March 2, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Roomlinx, Inc. (OTCBB:RMLX), the innovative developer of hotel interactive TV applications, has introduced a new product concept called the SmartRoom® that allows properties to create a smarter room catering to the business and leisure traveler. A SmartRoom® includes full usage of Roomlinx's award winning Interactive TV product coupled with a 4-in-1 printer, copier, fax, and scanner. The hotel also gains flexibility of how the SmartRoom® is offered to the guest and how service rates are determined.

With a SmartRoom® (through the HD TV) guests can:

  • Access Internet Apps including Netflix, Pandora, Google Apps, Hulu, YouTube, Facebook
  • Surf the web (fast and unrestricted access to the internet)
  • Watch as many HD movies as desired
  • Download email attachments
  • Edit or create documents, spreadsheets and presentations
  • Print, fax, copy and scan
  • Forward directions to their smart phone
  • Make dinner reservations and read restaurant reviews
  • Watch international and U.S. television programming on demand
  • Plug in their iPod/MP3 player or a thumb drive

"Roomlinx provided multiple Kessler Collection hotels with a complete Cat6 infrastructure upgrade, installed iTV, and a new Free-To-Guest HD head-end for no up-front expense. Already, the results have been terrific," said Kim Douglas, Corporate Director of IT for the Kessler Collection. "Roomlinx gives the control back to the hotelier, allowing us to choose how we offer the SmartRoom®. We are very impressed with the service provided as well as guest reaction to the upgraded amenity."

"The SmartRoom® transforms the guestroom into a business and entertainment center catering to 'lean forward' or 'lean back' guest habits. We strive to give hoteliers a new amenity that more than pays for itself while creating a true property differentiator," said Mike Wasik, CEO of Roomlinx.
