Amino launches virtual set-top box software

aminoAmino is launching virtual set-top box software, designed to let TV operators migrate to an all cloud and IP model.

The Amino Enable software aims to eliminate installation costs by letting users upcycle existing set-top boxes and is due to debut at ANGA COM and Broadcast Asia this month.

“As we move into the era of all IP/cloud television and video, the massive barrier facing operators across the globe is the millions of legacy set-top boxes they are invested in,” said Amino CEO, Donald McGarva.

“Most players need a cost-effective way to provide state-of-the-art services across their entire customer base. Enable gives them the ability to do that and shift towards a world in which all applications and services can be delivered over IP, on-demand from the cloud to any device, anytime, anywhere.”

Mark Evensen, chief technology officer of Amino, said: “Every day I am in discussions with operators who are seeking to modernise their TV service with advanced applications such as Android TV and streaming video.”

“Enable is the essential tool we use to launch next-generation applications and services simultaneously on legacy hardware, regardless of supplier, and the latest device platforms.”

Third party partners for Amino Enable include set-top box hardware companies like ZTE, Samsung, Hybroad, and Xavi and a range of software integrations including CA, DRM and media management.
