Challenge

The Challenges : What were Crown Cafe's challenges and needs?

Evelyn Hill Inc. is the official food and retail concessionaire for the Crown Cafe on Liberty Island and several other National Park service monuments. Having a long heritage of innovation, they pride themselves on introducing new technologies to better serve the thousands of visitors who come to their establishments. With rapid advancements in technology, food vendors have to provide the kind of modern service customers expect, which is why Evelyn Hill sought to implement the latest digital signage when renovating the Crown Cafe.

What did White Lodging need to accomplish to deliver top-notch in-room entertainment for hotel guests?

Hotel guests now demand in-room entertainment that delivers the advanced functionality and interactivity of their home TVs. This has led forward-thinking hotels to adopt current technology to deliver the high quality entertainment guests expect. As a world-class hotelier, White Lodging sought to integrate premium hospitality TVs to provide superior in-room entertainment in their Clark and Grand Hotels. These had to be full-featured TVs that could take advantage of P-based TV installation and future-proofing.
