Blue Jeans Network and Hyatt Regency Santa Clara Help Travelers and Local Businesses "See What They've Been Missing"

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 area.

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 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 easily 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, 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 America Parkway in Santa Clara, California.
