Amino Technologies plc (LSE: AMO), the Cambridge-based leader in digital entertainment solutions for IPTV, Internet TV and in-home multimedia distribution, announces that its wholly-owned subsidiary, Finnish technology company Booxmedia, has signed a new contract with Dutch utilities and digital services company DELTA.
Booxmedia will use its white label platform and products to provide, install and maintain a new end-to-end multiscreen cloud TV solution for DELTA.
