LOS ANGELES, June 11, 2008 – NxTV, Inc.,®  completed installation of its High Definition IP Video On Demand (HD IPVOD), TV-on-demand and wired laptop solution at the recently opened, Five-Star new build, ‘The Mansion on Peachtree’ in Atlanta, Georgia, it was announced today.   NxTV is the first and largest provider of IPVoD and interactive digital IP-based in-room entertainment and technology solutions in the global hospitality industry.

The mixed-use property, managed by Rosewood Hotels and Resorts, is the fifth Rosewood project in five years in which NxTV installed its converged network solution.  This will give operators the ability to merge operations, entertainment and communications, and will let consumers blend services between PCs and TVs, and mirror their in-home entertainment systems.

Other Rosewood properties jointly implemented with NxTV include the San Ysidro Ranch in Santa Barbara; California; Rosewood Mayakoba in Riviera Maya, Mexico; and Rosewood Crescent Hotel in Dallas.

“There are two areas we see as very compelling in the NxTV offering: the converging of the Internet experience so the guest has one charge but three entry types of experience – Internet, TV, wired and wireless,” said Fred Crespo, Corporate Director of Information Systems with Rosewood Hotels & Resorts.  “Also, the quality of high-definition content now available in the lineup is a strong benefit to our guests.”

“We are very proud to be working with this prestigious brand. Rosewood Hotels and Resorts has developed an array of impressive properties, and are increasingly looking to converged platforms to streamline hotel operations and enable a superior consumer experience,” said Hooman Honary, president and CTO of NxTV,Inc.  “The NxTV platform will be at the center of delivering such solutions.”

Designed by noted American architect Robert A.M. Stern, The Mansion on Peachtree combines an intimate 127-room ultra-luxury hotel with 45 residences. Towering 42-stories high in the heart of Buckhead – Atlanta’s most affluent neighborhood – the property is crafted from classically inspired limestone and cast stone. Each guest of The Mansion on Peachtree enjoys unrivaled luxury, breathtaking views and the personal attention of a staff of expertly trained butlers.

“The NXTV solution is a very good match for The Mansion,” added Honary. “Designed to satisfy the entertainment and connectivity needs of the most demanding guests, our platform delivers unparalleled flexibility in its user interface, and the highest quality first run Hollywood movies in both ED (Enhanced Definition) and HD (High Definition).”
