The PCS100R is a stand-alone Linux data server that manages and controls the Pro:Centric system, delivering unique digital content from the head-end to the hotels' guest rooms via the RF distribution network. It supports a data carousel of applications and services and broadcasts these to Pro:Centric enabled TVs over a preconfigured communications channel, enabling guests to select customized content for in-room viewing using the TV remote control, such as hotel amenities, daily weather, and the channel programming guide. The PCS100R can be used with both Free-To-Guest (FTG) and Pay-Per-View (PPV) head-end systems.
The server captures data from the Internet and formats it within display pages, and outputs the pages in DTV format over the Asynchronous Serial Interface (ASI) output. With appropriate modulation and up-conversion, this ASI signal can then be used for either IP or RF distribution in a lodging site application.
