Blue Jeans Network and Hyatt Regency Santa Clara Help Travelers and Local Businesses "See What They've Been Missing"
MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. --(Business Wire)--
It should come as no surprise that the hotel providing the most
technologically sophisticated experience for guests and visitors is
located in the heart of Silicon Valley. With that in mind, the Hyatt
Regency Santa Clara and Blue
Jeans Network, the leader in interoperable video conferencing
services, have introduced high definition (HD) interoperable video
conferencing services available to business travelers, hotel guests,
convention visitors, and local companies in the greater Silicon Valley
Adjacent to the Santa Clara Convention Center, the Hyatt Regency Santa
Clara is one of four Hyatt hotels in the U.S. that tests and integrates
new technology with a vision of creating a high-tech hotel and business
center of the future. The concept behind these "lab hotels" is to
introduce technology that combines luxury, productivity, and convenience
for hotel guests and visitors in order to make their visit as productive
and enjoyable as possible.
Among the high-tech concepts that are being tested at the Hyatt Regency
Santa Clara are in-room Apple (News - Alert) TVs, phone-charging stations, a text-based
mobile concierge service, and now, on-demand video conferencing and
collaboration with Blue Jeans Network.
With Blue Jeans, Hyatt Regency Santa Clara hotel guests and local
businesses can utilize a new video conferencing booth located in the
hotel lobby to connect to colleagues, customers, and partners at work or
friends and family back home; all in a climate-controlled and soundproof
mini-office. Additionally, hotel guests can access the Blue Jeans video
conferencing service via tablet computers and/or laptops in guest rooms.
As the video collaboration industry continues to grow, many travelers
are inconvenienced while on the road when they are unable to connect to
their corporate office's video conferencing rooms easiy using the tools
readily available to them on the road. Using Blue Jeans at the Hyatt
Regency Santa Clara, however, business travelers and hotel guests can
easily connect back to virtually any video conferencing or telepresence
system in use today. Rather than being second-class citizens in meetings
on the dark end of a phone line, they can now be active and engaged
video participants. Whether using a tablet or laptop computer in the
hotel room, or via the Hyatt Regency Santa Clara's mini-office, video
collaboration can now reach the business traveler.
Blue Jeans Network is the leading provider of interoperable video
conferencing services. It is the only vendor in the world where users
can connect to colleagues, customers and partners that have access to a
Web browser and camera, or make use of popular business video
conferencing or consumer video chat solutions from Cisco, Polycom,
LifeSize (News - Alert), Skype, Microsoft Lync, or Google.
"We are privileged to be in the center of the world's technology mecca.
What better way to provide high-caliber services to our guests than to
integrate technology that is being developed right here in our
backyard," said Dania Duke, General Manager, Hyatt Regency Santa Clara.
"Blue Jeans' video conferencing service provides a business-grade
executive conference room experience not only for Hyatt guests, but also
for meeting planners and nearby companies hosting partners and guests.
We are proud to be creating the hotel of the future."
"Our mission is to make video conferencing as easy and as pervasive as
an audio call," said Stu Aaron, Chief Commercial Officer, Blue Jeans
Network. "Hyatt has a vision to provide high-tech amenities that cater
to busy professionals - and allow them to conduct business as if they
were in their own office. It is our privilege to offer this service to
Hyatt guests and visitors who need to connect with the office or the
family while on the road."
Experience the vision of Hyatt's hotel of the future and test-drive the
Blue Jeans video conferencing service in action on February 28, March 6
and March 7, 2013 from 4:00-7:00 pm at the Hyatt Santa Clara, 5101 Great
