DNA deployed Android TV set-top box is powered by Amino Move platform

Amino, the IP/Cloud video software and device specialist, is now providing Finland-based operator DNA with both mobile and set-top box service delivery for its multiscreen TV.

DNA has further expanded its TV service with Amino’s MOVE cloud TV platform to support its recent launch of TV-hubi – its new Android TV 4K UHD device – in the home. This provides customers with access to a range of services including all Finnish channels and a wide range of Pay TV content, VoD and Network PVR. Other third-party apps like YouTube™, Deezer and Netflix are available from the Google Play™ app store.

Amino has been working with DNA since 2010 in building its multiscreen TV service, which has been steadily growing in richness of the content and functionality as well as popularity in line with booming consumption of mobile data in the country.

Now, MOVE also supports the delivery of TV to the home. In addition to developing new TV-hubi interface, Amino has integrated DNA operated Verimatrix DRM to their Amino MOVE platform. Live TV streams to DNA TV-hubi come from DNA platform. In combination, all these services are now enjoyed by the user with the same user experience across all devices. Previously Amino has deployed its e2e platform, including NPVR, transcode and web services particularly to DNA’s mobile TVE offering.

DNA’s VP of Entertainment Business Jarno Haikonen said: “We want to offer our customers a TV service which makes it easy to move between different types of content from one screen to another with a unified user experience. With the help of our latest product launch, DNA TV-hubi with DNA TV application, developed by Amino, we are able to sell our pay TV services to all Finnish people either through cable, terrestrial or IPTV.”

DNA began sales of DNA TV-hubi this summer.

Amino CEO Donald McGarva said: “DNA are a much-valued long term customer of ours and we have worked very closely with them to transition the capabilities of our MOVE platform to provide both mobile and now fixed line TV service delivery. “This effectively streamlines their operations into one seamless platform and also showcases our strong systems integration and UX development skills in aligning a number of partners and creating a compelling new user Android TV experience for their customers.”

Amino’s MOVE cloud TV platform is deployed by a number of operators and provides a high performance, scalable and secure solution for operators seeking to deploy entertainment services to any screen, anywhere, anytime.
