TeleAdapt Proves to Hoteliers and Designers that Bluetooth Audio Playback is
Going Mainstream Among Travellers

WATFORD, UK (May 12, 2010) – TeleAdapt is pleased to announce its wireless audio streaming exhibit will be at this month’s Hospitality Design Exposition and Conference in Las Vegas, presenting a way hotels can keep their guests connected without the need for cables or wires. At booth #566, hoteliers, designers and architects can experience wireless music streaming from their personal iPhone®, Blackberry® and other MP3-playing smartphone through MediaHub HD™ connectivity panel demo stations featuring Panasonic and Samsung displays.

Imagine relaxing in your hotel room to the sound of your favorite playlist streaming through the TV speakers from your iPhone or Blackberry and still having the freedom to keep the MP3-playing phone by your side to check email or answer calls. As the leading worldwide supplier of connectivity products for the hotel industry, that’s the guest experience TeleAdapt has created for travellers.

TeleAdapt focuses its business on trends in consumer electronics and how those trends translate to entertainment habits of hotel guests while traveling. Bluetooth® wireless audio playback is becoming a widely popular consumer electronics feature, with more and more smartphones and Apple iPods supporting the technology. Numerous Bluetooth wireless stereo headphones, wireless audio receivers and in-car wireless interfaces were also unveiled at this year’s Consumer Electronics Show, providing consumers countless options for using Bluetooth wireless audio playback in the home and on the road.

MediaHub HD is the industry’s first connectivity panel to offer a wireless interface for the guest and has been installed in over 30 hotels to date. “Currently, there are no other options available for hotels as simple as ours for wireless connectivity,” explains TeleAdapt CEO Gordon Brown. “Media connectivity used to be plug and play. Now, it’s just play!”

MediaHub HD is an all-in-one connectivity panel that provides multi-media connection points to display guest’s personal content on the in-room entertainment system. Travellers can seamlessly connect digital cameras, game consoles, laptops, iPods, and more to enjoy audio and video from those devices on the in-room TV and sound system. The Bluetooth
wireless pairing point also allows guests to stream music and other audio from any stereo-Bluetooth-enabled iPod, iPhone Blackberry, or laptop through the in-room TV and sound system, without having to physically connect the device with a cable. Guests can simply pair and play.

Hoteliers and their design teams have been turning to TeleAdapt for more than 17 years for connectivity solutions that enhance the overall in-room experience. For more information on TeleAdapt’s MediaHub HD and their other connectivity devices for the hospitality industry, please visit
