More HD in hotel rooms

Hotel rooms can be notoriously backwards in terms of media technology, but the introduction of NxTV's HD set-top may signal a seachange, at least for wealthier travellers. Initially deploying to the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza in Los Angeles, the box connects a hotel room to a central media server, which streams content such as HDTV and locally-hosted movies over an Ethernet connection. Users can further browse the web with a pre-loaded version of Firefox; options which may later become available include VoIP calls, guest messaging, and portal services tailored to the specific hotel. Some of the first movies appearing at the Century Plaza will include Apocalypto and Dreamgirls.
