London/Cambridge, 02 September 2014 – Amino and Vision247 have partnered to offer ISPs, telecommunications service providers and content aggregators a fully scalable platform that delivers an intuitive and easy-to-use OTT multiscreen experience across mobile, online and TV screens.

Ooyala’s Video Index reports that “mobile and tablet video viewing has increased by a factor of ten in the past two years, now accounting for 19% of all online video plays, with the share set to double in 2014.”  The partnership between Amino and Vision247 enables service providers to quickly take advantage of this trend with the rapid roll out of an integrated platform that delivers seamless Internet TV experiences to any screen.

Perception™ from Vision247

Perception™ delivers a complete OTT multiscreen TV service with live TV viewing, catch up, video on demand and a personal video recorder in the Cloud.  New entrants to the TV market and TV incumbents wishing to roll out profitable new services can offer multiscreen Internet TV packages across smartphones, tablets and Amino’s set top boxes (STB).

Perception™ provides these TV services through a single, easy-to-use and intuitive user interface that can be easily branded by the operator.

Amino A150 IPTV/OTT STB

Amino’s A150 IPTV/OTT STB combines the company’s reputation for quality with improved performance, enhanced user experiences and latest OTT/HTML5 features. The A150 is an ideal STB to power main TVs in OTT multiscreen deployments, enabling a consistent HTML5-based user interface across TV, mobile and online.

The combination of Amino STBs and Perception™ offers customers a complete, field-proven, scalable OTT multiscreen platform with a consistent user experience across mobile, online and the TV screen.”
