SmartboxScalable: Smart and slightly bigger than a microwave. Powerful enough to support any size property, the compact smartbox converts up to 96 satellite-delivered TV channels into any in-hotel distribution network, including coaxial, ethernet and fiber. Simultaneously deliver HD into every guest room, encrypted channels into the lobby and HD or analog signals into the gym all without complex wiring or bulky racks. The chassis is small enough to be wall-mounted.

Manageable: Enterprise-grade TV service management system. smartbox has integrated a wireless modem that connects to DISH’s secure private backbone network. DISH system integrators will use the network for real-time system health monitoring and remote management. Hotel management can view a service dashboard to keep their guests up to date on TV services.

Adaptable:Install today. Thrive Tomorrow. smartbox’s fluid technology is designed to evolve as the industry changes. The system can be easily reconfigured to meet future property expansions, system developments and network innovations with just the switch of a blade. The possibilities are virtually limitless.

Reliable: Guests will never know if a component fails. smartbox has been designed with Enterprise-grade components to reduce the likelihood of mechanical issues. Should mechanical issues occur, smartbox’s 24/7 backups allow service to continue without disrupting your guests TV experience.

Total Cost of Ownership: Economical meets energy efficient. smartbox requires less than 300 watts of power for a 40-channel HD lineup, consuming 90% less power than the current platform. The system also operates in temperatures up to 122F, eliminating the need for expensive cooling systems. Savings valid as of 2/24/14.
