iBAHN is working in partnership with Filmbank, a leading international provider of in-room entertainment to the worlds top hotels, to deliver the HD service across the Europe, Middle East and Africa regions. Filmbank, a joint venture company owned by Warner Bros. Entertainment and Sony Pictures, will provide HD box office content.
The Reading Hilton is the first hotel in the UK to enjoy the new service via its ETVi system, which is part of a global collaboration between Hilton and iBAHN. ETVi is iBAHNs all-digital system that combines HD digital TV, HD digital video, secure high-speed Internet services and digital audio.
The recently opened hotel is the first of many that will benefit from the extended HD services, including hotels in Dubai, Egypt and the Lebanon. HD offers picture quality with up to five times more detail than Standard Definition (SD) TV, delivering vibrant colour, stunning detail and incredible depth. It also uses millions more colours than SD TV, increasing the richness and intensity of the image.
