Hoist Group equips Schloss Elmau Retreat with new Hotel TV Sets & TV System

The Schloss Elmau Retreat – Luxury Suites & Spa opened a new adjoining hotel building on 21 March 2015. HoistLocatel GmbH, the German subsidiary of the Hoist Group, provided the media equipment for the 47 new suites.


In consultation with hotel management, HoistLocatel decided to install Samsung LED Smart hotel TV sets (series HC890). Each of the 47 hotel suites is now equipped with a 46” flat-screen TV or an additional 40” flat-screen TV. To ensure a clean interior design worthy of the hotel, each TV set sits on a specially-designed stand manufacturer by Schnepel GmbH & Co. KG.

Each TV is connected to a comprehensive TV information & entertainment portal called “Eclipse Connected TV”. This interactive and network-independent TV system solution from HoistLocatel GmbH provides a customised user interface and acts as an information platform for hotel guests and visitors. In particular, the system enables real time, easy and quick updates about the extensive service provided by the 5-star hotel. Both the hotel guests and the hotel benefit greatly from this functionality. Through this integrated access point, guests can connect their mobile devices with their TV sets via Apple AirPlay for iOS or Miracast for Android. This creates a direct data connection and allows guests to share their audio and video content from their laptops, smartphones and tablets directly on the TV screen.

HoistLocatel GmbH has also installed and programmed a satellite TV system at Schloss Elmau Retreat. Each hotel suite can now receive 65 TV channels, including 16 Sky channels on each TV set.

All hardware, software and system installations were performed by HoistLocatel GmbH’s certified technicians. Now that the installation process has been successfully completed, a specially trained support team is responsible for maintenance and service at Schloss Elmau Retreat.
