Amino secures substantial HD set-top box contract from major South Eastern European operator

Amino Communications, the IPTV/OTT set-top box provider, has partnered with IPTV and Digital Content delivery solution provider Intracom Telecom, to secure a substantial contract to provide HD IPTV set-top boxes for one of the fastest growing IPTV deployments in South Eastern Europe.

The network operator provides a range of broadband, mobile, telephony and IPTV services, across several countries, offering a mix of live TV, premier sports channels, video-on-demand (VoD) and a rich set of infotainment services to end users' TV sets.

Amino will supply MPEG-2/MPEG-4 IPTV/OTT set-top boxes for the continued rollout of HD services across networks in two countries. The device combines Amino's high performance capability with http live streaming (HLS) capability to deliver entertainment experiences across both managed and unmanaged networks, all seamlessly and securely managed under Intracom Telecom's digital content delivery platform.

Amino and Intracom Telecom have worked closely on a number of deployments across Europe and North America.

Amino CEO Donald McGarva said: "We're very pleased to be working with our partners at Intracom Telecom to support HD service rollout. This is our first HD deployment in Eastern Europe and was secured via a very thorough and competitive process. We're delighted that our offering was recognised for its quality performance, advanced functionality and seamless integration with our ecosystem partner."

Intracom Telecom's Head of Telco Software Business Division Mr. Anastassios Dimopoulos said: "We are pleased to have expanded our advanced services offering to an important customer. Amino's quality and value proposition seamlessly integrates with our next-generation platform, forming a highly scalable and future-proof solution."
