Amino Communications (AIM: AMO.L), the world leading developer of pure IPTV and hybrid/OTT devices and solutions, will invite visitors to IBC 2010 (stand 5.B40) to experience the true potential of “Over the Top” (OTT) entertainment.

The company will showcase its Intel®- powered Amino Freedom DVB-T hybrid/OTT media centre running a range of “hands-on” demonstrations capturing the powerful device’s ability to deliver broadcast TV, Video-on Demand, home media and OTT content – plus new user interfaces, gaming and applications.

The Amino Freedom, already winner of a prestigious industry award this year, features the Intel® Atom™ processor CE4100 – and has been specially designed to help meet growing consumer demand for TV-based “Over-The-Top” (OTT) video entertainment. Powered by the first generation of Intel® and Nokia’s MeeGo™ for the TV, the powerful device has been designed to support common Internet formats such as Adobe® Flash and Microsoft Silverlight.

Amino will also launch its new “Amino Solutions” offering – a flexible, modular end-to-end solution to drive profitable, personalised and easy to manage services via the Amino Freedom platform. By partnering with best-of-breed providers, Amino Solutions supports operators and service providers to manage multiple digital formats – from ingest to consumption – in both traditional video delivery and the new era of OTT and connected services.

Key features supported include:

  • A wide range of apps – including the Intel® “Appup” store
  • Management information system
  • Content and product management
  • Personalisation and recommendation
  • Element management system
  • Consumption data analysis tools

Another highlight will be Amino’s next generation STi7105 system-on-chip based STB range – offering new levels of performance for IPTV deployments, including:

  • The Amino A129: an MPEG-2 and MPEG-4 standard definition IP STB for entry level deployments
  • The Amino A140: an MPEG-2 and MPEG-4 high definition IP STB in a compact case
  • The Amino A540 PVR: a HD high performance STB with integral PVR

Amino Chief Executive Officer Andrew Burke said: “The Amino Freedom really hits the market’s sweet spot for hybrid/OTT functionality. The ability to handle open Internet content natively, powerful graphics capability and processing power to support gaming, apps and the slickest user interfaces is a real differentiator.

“Our new solutions offering brings together a wide range of expertise into a compelling package, capturing all the leading-edge work we’ve done around the MeeGo™ operating system with our more traditional strengths in content management, packaging and promotion plus equipment monitoring and quality of service.

“Operators are turning to our new hybrid/OTT services because they want to deliver an Intel®-powered market-leading device and a range of solutions that can effectively manage and drive extra value from their deployments.”
