Exterity Returns to HITEC Dubai to Debut New ArtioGuest Interactive Guest Portal

Edinburgh / Dubai 28 November 2018

We will be showcasing our new ArtioGuest middleware application at HITEC Dubai 2018 on stand #B120 (Madinat Jumeirah, 5-6 December 2018), and talking about our latest developments in hospitality TV and digital signage across the world.

At HITEC, attendees will get a first look at ArtioGuest, our new hospitality-focused solution. The powerful middleware shipped in June 2018 and has since been quickly adding a range of new features, with the aim of optimising the in-room entertainment experience for hotel guests. Fully integrated with Exterity’s IPTV system and leading Property Management Systems (PMS), latest ArtioGuest features include flexible catch-up TV, increased design flexibility with a free-form menu and customisable welcome messages. We also recently launched its in-house Design Service, supporting customers with the creation of bespoke portal and signage designs that meet their brand and guest expectations.


Today’s tech-savvy travellers have high expectations and are looking for easy-to-use in-room technology that is better than home. Over the past few months, we’ve added several key new features to ArtioGuest to ensure our customers can continue offering their guests a premium in-room experience. We are delighted that HITEC attendees will have the opportunity to be among the first to see the latest enhancements to ArtioGuest and how this enables hoteliers to deliver a modern, fresh take on in-room entertainment and communication

At HITEC, we will also showcase our digital signage solution, ArtioSign, which is similarly used in hospitality to ensure guests are informed and entertained wherever they are in a hotel or resort. ArtioGuest and ArtioSign share a similar, intuitive user interface, which makes it easy for users to pick up and move seamlessly between the applications. Visitors to our stand will also see the new AvediaPlayer m9405 4K Media Player, which is now available to order and which completes Exterity’s complete end-to-end 4K IP video and digital signage solution.

The Middle East market is well-known for its grand hotels, luxurious resorts and outstanding guest experiences. Since entering the local market 10 years ago, Exterity has gained considerable experience and understanding of complex high-end AV and guest entertainment requirements, making us a trusted partner for some of the region’s most in-demand hotels and resorts. Our entire product portfolio is evolving in line with consumer expectations for in-room entertainment, and hotelier requirements for solutions that integrate with other systems and promote revenue-generating guest services via the TV. We are proud to be bringing our latest IP video and digital signage solutions to HITEC, and we look forward to welcoming visitors to our stand and demonstrating how we support this goal of creating a better than home guest experience
