Smart Hospitality Display Introduction
This document introduces the Samsung Smart Hospitality Display devices since Tizen 6.5 and its new platform, Tizen Enterprise Platform.
As the needs of the hospitality display partners have evolved and more businesses begin to use hotel TV, there has been a surge in the variety of display device offerings available to them. Over time, multiple solutions were introduced, but they still did not completely address the core need for lightweight and simple media players.
Samsung wants to advance Tizen’s capabilities into a broader area as a solution for the enterprise business community, especially for the hospitality service business. Samsung continues to improve the business opportunities based on Tizen by providing a diverse range of features that are catered specifically for business uses.
Samsung has developed and produced Smart TVs based on Tizen since 2015. From 2022 onwards, with Tizen 6.5, Samsung provides Smart Hospitality Display devices with the newly adopted Smart TV platform. This platform, known as the Tizen Enterprise Platform, provides additional features and extensions from Tizen for Smart TVs, and simplifies everything such that users just need to establish an internet connection to begin playing digital content from the content server.
