Amino certified for YouTube on TV on latest IPTV/OTT device rangeThursday, April 16th, 2015
- Viewers can now discover and watch favourite videos and channels via YouTube on TV
CAMBRIDGE, UK — Amino’s latest range of IPTV/OTT devices now support YouTube on TV – allowing consumers to view videos from the world’s most popular video site full screen on their televisions.
The A150/A550 and Live Advanced Media Platform device series both completed certification approval recently and will now include the YouTube on TV HTML5 application.
The new value-added feature will allow viewers to move seamlessly between pay-TV and YouTube on TV to discover and watch their favourite videos and channels. From comedy to music to sports, users can find the channels they love and like, share, and more. By signing in to YouTube on TV, they can also access subscribed channels, playlists, and favourites from any device.
An Amino API allows easy integration with a wide range of middleware solutions, enabling operators to easily add YouTube on TV capability to their existing TV Pay-TV offering. Where supported by the middleware, viewers can use DIAL (Discovery and Launch) capability to “cast” their chosen content from a smartphone or tablet on to the main TV.
Amino CEO Donald McGarva said: “This is a major value added enhancement to our portfolio and underlines the power and capability our devices now have to handle exciting and innovative new HTML5 features like YouTube on TV.
“It’s also very closely aligned with operator demand for premium content capability from their devices and we believe this will be warmly welcomed by our customers.”
The new feature will be available in the latest software release for Amino customers from this month.
