Viggo’s Smart TV set-top-box supports UDP multicast and Unicast, and enables hotels to receive TV channels and VOD streams using their existing or future IPTV infrastructure.
Viggo Smart TV solutions saves hotels precious staff time, while increasing new revenue opportunities, as it was designed to facilitate interactions between guests and their hotel’s front desk.
