SIMI VALLEY, CA—Hotel Internet Services has released its new IPTV based hospitality entertainment system, BeyondTV, which features Stealth Storage Technology. BeyondTV provides the ability to pause Live TV with full trick-play (Fast-forward and Rewind) capabilities while operating silently.

This latest release also allows guests to preview a channel while watching another channel (Picture in Picture). As part of the many new enhancements, BeyondTV now offers a complete set of on-screen interactive services (like housekeeping, in-room dining, valet and taxi service, hotel staff-to-guest messaging, advertising, etc.) which all can be customized and controlled by the hotel staff.

BeyondTV provides a large selection of the latest Hollywood HD movies as well as bundled movie packages with hundreds of movies to choose from. The system allows users to browse the web providing access to email and in-room messaging. International travelers will have the ability to switch languages on-the-fly, making the system more user-friendly and easier to navigate.
