LodgeNet, Enseo Partnership Expands Interactive Options For Hotels And Hospitals

Stocks in this article: LNET

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. and RICHARDSON, Texas, April 3, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- LodgeNet Interactive Corporation (NASDAQ: LNET), the leading provider of interactive media and connectivity services to hospitality and healthcare businesses and the consumers they serve, and Enseo, Inc., a provider of in-room entertainment and digital signage solutions for hospitality, healthcare, retail, cruising, and stadiums and arenas, announced today that Enseo has joined LodgeNet's industry-first TV Compatibility Program, which helps hoteliers and healthcare facilities choose HDTVs that support LodgeNet's IP-based, interactive HDTV (iHDTV) and HD free-to-guest (FTG) TV platforms.  


The collaboration with Enseo will benefit three groups of current and potential LodgeNet customers. For those seeking an iHDTV solution with enhanced in-room processing, there is now a LodgeNet IP solution powered by a best-of-breed set-top box (STB) and the capabilities that come with it. Hotels and hospitals who already have Enseo-powered solutions are also prime candidates to upgrade to LodgeNet's latest-generation iHDTV platform. And a third group – hotels and hospitals whose HDTVs are compatible with Enseo STBs – can now utilize LodgeNet's latest iHDTV systems.

"Enseo hardware has proven itself in high-traffic, multiple user environments by delivering the performance and reliability our customers demand," said Paul Johnson, Vice President of Product Management for LodgeNet. "We look forward to working with Enseo and now being able to offer our most advanced iHDTV platforms in the thousands of hotel and hospital rooms that have already installed the Enseo solution."

"We view the relationship with LodgeNet as an extremely promising venue for maximizing our competitive advantage with potential new customers while adding value for customers who have already installed an Enseo-powered solution," said Vanessa Ogle, CEO, President and Chairman of the Board for Enseo. "LodgeNet's TV Compatibility Program is just one example of their commitment to helping hoteliers and healthcare providers make informed technology decisions, and we look forward to the opportunities this new partnership represents for both of our companies as well as the customers we serve separately and in common."

Enseo's HD3000, HD4000 and HD5000 STBs are now supported for the Envision iHDTV and HD FTG solutions LodgeNet offers the hospitality market as well as the iHDTV solution being sold by the company's LodgeNet Healthcare subsidiary. The integrated LodgeNet/Enseo platforms will accommodate coax or IP network delivery, and Enseo STBs will be one of the available client options with LodgeNet's Envision IP platform.
