Each hotel has its own requirements, and every engineering can choose the most appropriate technology.
Both IP multicast and digital RF distribution in a coaxial cable network offer perfect HD images. There is no difference in choosing one or the other signal transport technology. The correct choice depends on the particularities of the installation (if it is a new installation or a pre-existing distribution is used if it is a hotel with few rooms and Multiswitch IF offer a lot of channels with a small investment, etc.), the experience in each technology and of course the cost.
HotelierTV supports both technologies and even both at the same time. The installation can distribute some channels over the Gigabit Ethernet network, and others over the coaxial network. You can combine them, in a completely transparent way for the guest in a single channel list. Channel 1 can be IP, Channel 2 RF, etc. The user will not notice any difference.
Depending on the type of video distribution and the expected bandwidth consumption, it is even possible to connect the TV in the room via WiFi.
