UIEvolution’s Guest Evolution™ delivers the world’s first HTML5 based TV solution to passenger and crew TVs, as well as to digital signs throughout the ship. Features for passengers and crew on the maiden voyage include live TV, ship channels, free-to-guest video and music on demand.

“We are delighted to work with UIEvolution to offer innovative technology and entertainment services to our passengers and crew,” said Jan Swartz, executive vice president of Princess Cruises. “The new system which debuted on our just-launched Royal Princess has already received enthusiastic feedback and is being called the new standard in the industry.”

Harbour Marine Systems (HMS) engineered, installed and commissioned the platform, providing a seamless integration with other relevant systems onboard. Their state-of-the-art infotainment integration for Princess adds a new perspective to their passengers’ digital experience onboard.

UIEvolution’s Guest Evolution features a browser-based smart TV application on interactive TVs that can be extended to support a host of innovative features such as:

  • Screen shifting™ live TV, movies and music to the passenger’s smartphone or tablet
  • On-board mapping and routing
  • Information on ship activities, shore excursions and port guides with the ability for passengers to book from their in-cabin TV, smartphone or tablet
  • Restaurant and wine menus

“Working with Princess Cruises, one of the top cruise operators in the world, is an honor. We are pleased they have selected the UIEvolution Guest Evolution for their fleet,” said Chris Ruff, CEO and President of UIEvolution. “The smart TVs in cabins and the digital signs throughout the Royal Princess will enhance the already terrific cruise experience Princess delivers to its passengers.”
