Amino to showcase extended OTT range

Set-top box manufacturer Amino Communications will showcase a range of enhanced IPTV set-top boxes offering OTT capability at IBC.

All Amino devices – from its high-end Freedom media centres offering OTT functionality to the cable, satellite and terrestrial markets through to the Aminet IPTV range – will now provide operators with the ability to offer a mix of broadcast, on-demand and content from the open internet including social media, gaming and applications, according to Amino.
 The IPTV devices will utilise both HLS (HTTP Live Streaming) and HTML5 to deliver the new layer of OTT content.

The new enhanced range also includes HTTP upgrade capability allowing set-top boxes to be remotely upgraded automatically.
The OTT-enabled Aminet set-top boxes include the A129, A140 and A540 PVR and the H140 hospitality device.
“Extending our market leadership in OTT across our IPTV range now means we can deliver the most compelling entertainment experiences for a wide range of customers. While our Freedom products can target new or existing cable, satellite or terrestrial deployments, our new Aminet range can now deliver an exciting OTT content layer to the IPTV market – a feature our customers now see as critical for the next phase of service deployment,” said Amino CEO Andrew Burke. “The key technology features to enable OTT – including HLS and HTML5 – are specifically designed to improve the user experience with a raft of new services which in turn will help our customers to reduce customer churn and drive new revenue streams.”

Amino will be exhibiting at IBC on Stand 5.B40
