CALGARY, Alberta, Canada, November 5th, 2007 --- Guest-Tek Interactive Entertainment Ltd. (“Guest-Tek” or the “Company”) (TSX:GTK) today announced that the Company has received a purchase order from PCH Hotels and Resorts (“PCH”) to provide a comprehensive solution for high-definition video-on-demand (“VOD”) and free-to-guest television (“FTG”), IP telephony, and high-speed Internet access (“HSIA”) service at the Renaissance Montgomery Hotel and Spa at the Convention Center in Alabama. The purchase order is valued at $3.3 M USD and is expected to be completed in 2007.
The solution selected for the Renaissance Hotel will deliver an un-rivaled in-room guest experience. The OneView Media entertainment solution will give guests access to over 32 digital high-definition FTG television channels, five times that of any other Renaissance operating today. The high-definition VOD system provides guests first run Hollywood title in high-definition and the ability to surf the web using the stunning clarity of the high-definition television.
The Renaissance Montgomery Hotel and Spa at the Convention Center offers a 9,000 sq ft European style spa along with nearby access to the 26 golf courses along the Robert Trent Jones Trail (www.rtjgolf.com). PCH will showcase and promote the spa and golf courses through the interactive menu system presented to guests on the television, where guests will have the ability to browse and book golf times and spa appointments simply using the TV remote control. The hotel is adjacent to the Montgomery Convention Center and itself holds 103,000 sq ft of state-of-the-art meeting space, completely covered by Guest-Tek’s wired and wireless HSIA solution.
