LAS VEGAS — 2012 International CES — Amino (AIM: AMO) and Digital Keystone will showcase the DK Maelstrom™-powered gateway solution running on the Amino hybrid/OTT media gateway at the Intel booth at CES 2012.

This powerful combination of hardware and software allows viewers to watch premium live and recorded TV anywhere in the home on any consumer platform. All content is securely delivered to all devices, without relying on multiple content copies, custom players or applications, while at the same time reducing the burden on service providers.

Paolo Siccardo, President and CEO of Digital Keystone, said: “Consumers want premium content on the device of their choice. They cannot be anchored to just a large-format screen. The innovative Amino Freedom media gateway , with its powerful transcoding capabilities, together with the Maelstrom software enable the discovery and authentication of any device, and transparently stream optimized content, metadata, and control. We are very pleased to co-operate with Amino to deliver a full-featured solution for premium content distribution.”

Kevin Lingley, Chief Technologist, Amino, said: “Today, all network operators are aggressively working to enable their content on subscribers’ devices. After all, more devices means more services, sticky subscriptions, and more revenues. Digital Keystone and Amino provide an end-to-end solution for this, where the operator retains control of the content distribution and analytics, while still offering the viewer the flexibility to watch the content on any approved device.

“The Amino Freedom hybrid/OTT builds upon our strengths as an IP solutions provider. With the addition of Digital Keystone’s Maelstrom software, we can now leverage DK’s expertise in content security and domain management to offer an end-to-end content delivery and analytics system to reach a broad range of clients. We are excited to demonstrate this solution together with Digital Keystone.”

Digital Keystone’s Maelstrom consists of the Maelstrom Media Streamer for transcoding and transcription, and the Maelstrom Domain Manager for network optimization and domain management. With Maelstrom, premium TV services are delivered in the native format of each connected device, without downloading any plug-ins, installing any applications, or configuring any custom code. The service provider can easily customize and control their offer, including search, recommendations, advertising and promotions, for a rich and friendly viewer experience.
