Amino ranked world leader in IPTV set-top box market for second year running

ABI Research names Amino world's biggest vendor based on market share

Cambridge, UK, 26 March 2007: ABI Research has declared Amino the global leading vendor of IPTV set-top boxes for the second consecutive year.

The accolade recognises the world leading IPTV platform supplier's significant growth in emerging markets, as well as the growing US market. Amino's customer base increased to over 1,500 organisations and its set-top boxes have been deployed and trialled in over 50 countries worldwide.

In its journey to becoming the world's principal vendor, Amino received the 2006 NAB award for Innovation in Media. The NAB spring convention is the world's largest electronic media show covering the development, delivery and management of professional video and audio content across all media. Amino was the only set-top box vendor obtaining this award in the Content Delivery category.

Other key milestones for Amino in 2006 included the introduction of four next generation set-top box products supporting advanced video codecs, enabling the first wireless IPTV connected home deployments in America and Europe, along with the first IPTV HD service and the first IPTV MPEG-4 service in the US.

Michael Arden, Principal Analyst, Broadband and Multimedia Research at ABI Research commented: "The IPTV STB market has begun an aggressive growth period, and the ability to provide cost-effective, feature-rich solutions will be key to maintaining market share. To remain competitive in the market, companies must shape their STB product lines to meet the growing demands of operators for multiple features supported on a variety of compression standards."

"We've been able to maintain such a strong position in the IPTV industry by taking advantage of the opportunities presented by emerging markets," said Bob Giddy, CEO at Amino. "These markets are important and will grow alongside our established US and European business."
