What is Hotel IPTV System and Why it is Important?


In the past, cable television was favored by some small hotels due to less guest demand, lower equipment costs, and free program sources. But in today's increasingly demanding stay experience requirements, just watching TV can no longer meet the entertainment needs of the vast majority of hotel guests.


Different from the cable TV system, the IPTV system has introduced a more advanced interactive system, which can meet the various needs of hotel guests during their stay through a variety of interactive functions, such as online meal ordering, video-on-demand, and even online check-out.



An IPTV system is actually an integrated content management system that can integrate all these entertainment functions, for example, being able to watch TV as well as big-name content platforms such as YouTube and Netflix, and of course, to order services online such as online meals and VOD!

Well, for me, I would suggest a video, because it is much more shocking than images!


Also, this hotel IPTV system allows scrolling subtitles to be displayed automatically in the "boot" interface




For example, if you would like to inform the guests that there is a SPA room or canteen open for the guests, you can use the scrolling subtitles like "SPA room on the 3rd floor is now open with buffet and beverage at 7 p.m. to 10 p.m.", or, you can also inform the guest that the swimming pool on the 8th floor will be open at 2 p.m.

Or, you can tell all the business room guests via this section that the Rooftop Bar is now open, and if you would like for socializing, we have prepared food and drinks at 10 p.m.

FMUSER hotel IPTV solution the VOD video on demand section


For example, for VIP guests, I would suggest high-quality paid videos since they have a much more accommodation budget than the guests who ordered standard rooms, accordingly, for a standard room guest, I would suggest some classic movies that are charge-free.


Meanwhile, you can also set a few pieces of paid videos for testing, and see whether the standard room guest would pay for them.


VOD is also a unified way for more turnover potential.

How Does a Hotel IPTV System Work?


In the following content, you will learn how a hotel IPTV system works, including content sources, IPTV distribution, and relevant IPTV hardware. So basically, during the signals transmission of the IPTV system, there will be 3 main steps, which are content source inputting, content sources processing, and contents distribution. The transmission equipment varies due to different signals input.


Step #1: IPTV Content Sources Inputting


In the first stage, there will be 3 kinds of input signals transmitted to the hotel IPTV system, including satellite TV signals, homebrew program signals, and IP internet program signals.


  • Satellite TV signals are usually transmitted by TV satellite and received by satellite dish.
  • Homebrew program signals are usually processed into different output forms by the buyers themself, for example, MP3/SDI/HDMI, etc.
  • IP internet program signals are usually from other IP addresses such as YouTube, so the content is neither made by the buyers nor from the TV satellite.


Step #2: IPTV Content Sources Processing


In the second step, three types of input signals will be processed by the hotel IPTV system according to their forms.


Satellite TV signals Processing


As for Satellite TV signals, since it is in RF form, we need an IP form instead, so we will need an IRD.


IRD is abbreviated for Integrated Receiver/Decoders in the IPTV area. It is used to transform the input RF signals into output IP signals to the ITPV server.


According to Wikipedia, an IRD is an electronic device used to pick up a radio-frequency signal and convert digital information transmitted in it.


An IRD usually has a card slot for paid Satellite TV signals card insertion, you'll have to order program-authorized cards from satellite TV program suppliers, and one box usually stands for multiple channels.


However, IRD is actually for professional hotel IPTV systems, if you're looking for a cheaper solution, well, a set-top box satellite receiver will be the best IRD alternative. 


A set-top box satellite receiver is used to transfer input RF signals from the Satellite TV into output HDMI signals and then processed into IP signals by HDMI hardware encoder. 


The set-top box satellite receiver is totally license-free, no authorized card is needed, and usually, one box stands for 1 channel.


By using a set-top box satellite receiver, you don't need to pay for TV program authorization anymore, all you need to pay is the device buying costs and yearly or monthly program renting fee.


Homebrew Program Signals Processing


As for Homebrew program signals, since the signals are in many different forms, you'll then need a hardware encoder. For example, if it was HDMI signals output, then an HDMI hardware encoder is needed to transform the HDMI input into IP output to the IPTV server.


IP Signals Processing


As for IP internet program signals, since the signals are in form of IP, so you don't need an IRD, STB, or encoder in normal cases, the IP output signals will be transferred directly into the IPTV server.


However, this solution is limited to the case where the streaming address of the program source does not change at all, otherwise, the server cannot obtain the program source after the program source is changed. 


And the alternative solution is to add up an IP internet set-top box for IP to HDMI transformation and an HDMI encoder for HDMI to IP transformation. The IP signals will then be transferred to the IPTV server.


Stability will be very good due to the use of STB with an authorized Internet program set-top box


Step #3: IPTV Distribution


In the last stage, IP signals processed by the IPTV server will be transferred into the IP network converter and finally runs into the set-top box and television in your guest's room, this process works the same for all solutions mentioned above.


To draw a conclusion, here is how FMUSER IPTV systems work:


For Satellite TV Content Sources


  1. Pro solution with IRD: Satellite TV signals (RF) >> Network dish (RF) >> Professional Satellite Receiver IRD (RF to IP) >> IPTV Server >> Network Switch >> Set-Top Box >> TV
  2. Cheaper solution with STB: Satellite TV signals (RF) >> Satellite Antenna (RF) >> STB Satellite Receiver (RF to HDMI) >> HDMI Encoder (HDMI to IP) >> IPTV Server >> Network Switch >> STB >> TV
  3. For Homebrew program signals: Homemade program signals (e.g. HDMI output) >> HDMI encoder(HDMI to IP) >> IPTV server >> network switch >> STB >> TV


For Homebrew Content Sources


  1. Cheaper but unsteady solution: Internet program (IP) >> IPTV server (regular processing of IP signals) >> network switch >> set-top box >> TV
  2. Pro solution with authorized program signals: IP program signals >> IP set-top box STB (IP to HDMI) >> HDMI encoder (HDMI to IP) >> IPTV server >> Network Switch >> STB >> TV

For the VIP guests, the advertisement may be like "Spa service and golf are now opened for VIP guests on the 3rd floor, please order a ticket ahead".

FAQ List for Hotel IPTV Engineers


I guess we have run over the Hotel IPTV system basics, and here are 7 frequently asked questions by hotel engineers, and they are:


  1. Can I use your system if my hotel is using a smart TV?
  2. What is the basic hotel IPTV system equipment in this case?

Q1: Can I use your system if my hotel is using a smart TV?


Of course, you can, but please make sure to install the Android APK we provided in your set-top boxes ahead. A Smart TV usually comes with a set-top box by default that has no IPTV APK inside, our IPTV server provides APK though. Some smart TVs use WebOS and alike operating systems. If this type of TV cannot install APK, it is recommended to use FMUSER's set-top box instead.


Q2: What is the basic hotel IPTV system equipment in this case?


In our last video on the professional hotel IPTV system, our engineers recommended the following basic equipment for a DRC local hotel with 75 rooms:


  • 1 * 4-way Integrated Receiver/Decoder (IRD).
  • 1* 8-way HDMI Encoder.
  • 1* FMUSER FBE800 IPTV server.
  • 3 * Network switch
  • 75 * FMUSER Hotel IPTV Set-top Boxes (AKA: STB).


What's more, for add-ons that are temperately NOT included in our solutions, here is what our engineers recommended:


Paid program receiving authorization card for IRD

Set-top boxes with different programs input and standards (e.g. HDMI satellite, local UHF, Youtube, Netflix, Amazon firebox, etc.)

100M/1000M Ethernet cables (please lay them properly in advance for each of your hotel rooms that needs IPTV services).

An online user manual is included in the IPTV system equipment package, please read them carefully and personalize the settings as your will. Our engineers are always listening if you have any questions.


Q4: Is there anything I need to pay attention to while wiring the system?


Yes, and here are 4 things you should know before and after the system wiring, which is:


To start with, for your proper on-site wiring, all the hotel IPTV system equipment will be tested and affixed with the relevant labels (1 on 1) before delivery.


During on-site wiring, please make sure each input port of the system equipment is matched with the designated input Ethernet cables


What's more, always double-check the connection between the Ethernet cable and the input ports, and make sure they are stable enough and not loose because the equipment on-working light will flash still even with a loose Ethernet cable connection.


Finally, please make sure you choose a good quality Cat6 Ethernet patch cable at a high transmission speed of up to 1000 Mbps.


Q5: Any suggestions for the IPTV system transmission room maintenance?


Sure we have. Except for the basic maintenance that every hotel engineer should follow, such as correct wiring and keeping the room dust-free and clean, our IPTV system engineer also recommended that the working temperature should be less than 40 Celsius while the humidity should be less than 90% relative humidity (non-condensing), and the power supply should remain stable between 110V-220V. And most importantly, make sure the room is engineer-only, and avoid the animals such as mice, snakes, and cockroaches from entering the room


Q6: How does your IPTV system work?


Well, it depends on how you input the signals. 


For example, if the input signals are from the TV satellite, they will be transformed from RF into IP signals, and finally gets into the set-top boxes in the guests' rooms. 


If you're interested in this topic, welcome to pay a visit to our video demo on what is a hotel IPTV system and how it works. 


Q7: What do I need to prepare before placing an order for your hotel IPTV system?


Well, before you reach out to our engineers via the links and phone number in the video description, you may need to figure out what you need exactly, for example:


  1. How do you receive the signals? Is it a TV satellite program or a homebrew program? How many channels of signal inputs are there?
  2. What is the name and location of your hotel? How many rooms do you need to cover for IPTV services?
  3. What devices do you currently have and what problems do you hope to solve?


Although our engineers will discuss these topics with you in WhatsApp or by phone, however, it would save time for both of us if you figure out the questions listed before reaching out to us.
