Av-Comm Deploys State of the Art IPTV Solution for Iglu Student Accommodation

In December 2015 Av-Comm completed the installation of the hospitality entertainment system at Iglu’s newest student accommodation facility in Brisbane’s CBD. The entertainment system provides Iglu’s residents with one of the most advanced and innovative entertainment systems installed in Australia.

The entertainment solution was developed in a partnership between Av-Comm and Video on Demand and is specifically tailored to cater for Iglu’s Australian facilities. In September Av-Comm and Video on Demand were successfully awarded an exclusive contract to provide in-room entertainment solutions for Iglu (Read More Here).

The system integrates local free to air television received terrestrially, international programming received by three 2.4m C Band Suman satellite dishes, Foxtel Pay TV received by satellite, movies on demand provided by Video on Demand, and a touchscreen digital signage solution installed in the foyers. The system utilises the latest in-room IPTV and mobile streaming technology providing students with unparalleled access to the streamed channels via integrated LG Procentric TVs installed in each room, or via a student’s own laptop and tablet devices.

The entertainment solution is integrated with Iglu’s property maintenance system providing one simple login page for students that allows them to seamlessly watch television, upgrade movie packages, discover local businesses, access public transport timetables, book access to laundry facilities, top up their internet account, or keep up to date with social and cultural events organised by Iglu’s friendly staff.
