CAMBRIDGE, UK — Tele2 Netherlands, one of the leading communication companies in the Netherlands, has selected Amino Technologies (LSE: AMO), the world leading independent IPTV specialist, as the supplier of MPEG-4 set-top boxes (STBs) for the provision of IPTV services. Under the terms of the agreement, Amino is expected to supply Tele2 with STBs – including its latest A132 and A532 MPEG-4 dual SD/HD compatible and Personal Video Recorder (PVR) models – over an 18-month period.

Tele2’s Director Consumer Market Günther Vogelpoel said: “We needed a STB that offered the most advanced features, responsive interface and a clear road map that was aligned with our own future strategy on IPTV. Amino’s products combined advanced functionality, a total cost of ownership and a supporting ecosystem, which made them the compelling choice.”

Amino Technologies Chief Executive Officer Andrew Burke said: “This is a strategically important contract win with a large and established Western European operator. In a strong and competitive selection process, we were able to demonstrate a compelling package of product, partnerships, flexibility and a deep understanding of the needs and demands of network operators, like Tele2, that are actively deploying IPTV services. Tele2’s endorsement is very welcome and we look forward to partnering with them in delivering their compelling and competitive IPTV solution.”
