Caiway and DELTA TV turn to AminoTV for service consolidation

Donald McGarva

Entertainment technology solutions provider Amino is partnering with Dutch ISPs DELTA and Caiway to provide TV services on a shared platform.

In 2018, DELTA and Caiway were acquired in separate deals by Swedish private equity group EQT and merged into DELTA Fiber Netherlands B.V.

The service, integrated via AminoTV, will allow the brands to operate as separate entities and integrate their pay-TV operations seamlessly to enable a geographically redundant platform.

Roll-out of the platform has already begun, and will continue through the remainder of 2019.  

The deployment will also include the AminoOS Service Assurance solution, which the company says “provides operators with flexible management tools to proactively support and improve the quality of service and customer experience”.

John Wittekamp, CTO at DELTA Fiber Netherlands, said: “In enabling us to bring both services onto a single unified backend platform, Amino helps us to boost our efficiencies and provide all our subscribers with an advanced, modern TV service. We can deliver live, on-demand and cloud PVR capabilities through a TV platform that enables us to provide a user-friendly and highly personalized customer experience.”

The Amino solution will provide IPTV over multicast and OTT over fibre, to support multiscreen services that include linear broadcast, as well as pause, restart, catch-up and network DVR capabilities.

Amino CEO Donald McGarva said: “The DELTA transformation project delivering modern TV experiences for all its subscribers has proven to be highly successful – gaining new customers and driving net promoter scores that rank with the industry best. We now look forward to replicating this success with Caiway and are pleased to share our knowledge and experience in deploying a smart, cost-effective solution that’s right for both brands.

“Helping operators such as DELTA and Caiway future-proof their operations is central to what we do at Amino. Working closely with TV operators of all types to deliver complex cable-to-IP transformation solutions as we all move toward an all-IP future is critical to business success for both our company and our clients.”
