Our solutions for your business

HTS has a long history in the A/V area of the hospitality business. While we have done all phases of this part of the business, what sets us apart is our ability to provide custom solutions that are AUTOMATED and INTEGRATED with other systems at the property.

Our most popular solutions are our Ballroom product and our Foreground Music product. Each is based on the most advanced digital technologies available. We typically use Rane RPM series digital audio processors but have used SoundWeb London as well. All systems employ automation and control from AMX Netlinx products. HTS's core asset in this space is our many years of custom programming code development that powers these systems. Our broadly varied library of experience from dozens of large projects allows us to quickly adapt our offerings to your needs.

Our touchscreen controlled Ballroom System that allows end users to control not only volume but also, compression, gain pad, equalizer, phantom power and source selection from INSIDE each ballroom division. Along with these advanced audio functions we also offer control of media servers, thermostats, projector lifts, retractable screens, and lighting system integration.

Our Foreground Music System is similarly architected using AMX and Rane products but has it's own unique feature set which is unsurpassed by any other off the shelf offering. Touchscreen based automation offers a single point of control for the entire property. Advanced audio functions are available on the touchpanel or via remote access from anywhere on-site or off-site. One of the most useful functions is the AUTOMATED SCHEDULING which allows music to change volume, sourcee or other parameters according to a pre-defined schedule. This feature makes a huge difference in the consistency of the guest experience. Within the background system we also apply automatic gain control and the use of ambient mics to adjust the sound automatically according to changing program source or environmental noise conditions.

While other custom solution providers can offer these same features, it takes years to write mature code that can offer all the features taylored to the needs of the hospitality business.

Case Study - Westin Saint Maarten

One of our most challenging projects, the Westin Sint Maarten was a ground up new development completed in late 2006. This project took place over a time span of nearly 3 years. HTS managed the design, installation and implementation of the entire low voltage cabling plant to include both inside and outside cabling for telephone, data, matv, satellite TV, A/V auotmation systems, security cameras, background music, and wired and wireless internet throughout the property. The property includes over 300 hotel rooms, 99 condominium units, casino, 3 restaurants, 3 bars, a world-class spa and over 20,000 square feet of meeting space.

In addition, HTS designed and built all technology and audio visual elements for the property's state of the art ultra-lounge.

From the planning and design phase, to opening day and beyond into the ongoing operation and support of extraordinary systems in the most challenging of locales, HTS can do the job.
