- iBAHN, the worldwide leader in digital entertainment and Internet solutions for the hospitality and meeting industries, today announces an agreement that makes it the first company in the sector to offer TeleAdapt’s Bluetooth MediaHub HD.
iBAHN’s certification from TeleAdapt means that it will provide the MediaHub HD guest connectivity solution as part of its comprehensive range of services. iBAHN customers will benefit from MediaHub HD, which allows hotel guests to connect their laptop, iPod®, MP3, game console, digital camera or DVD player to their in-room TV system.
