Double Success for Amino at Telco TV

Amino wins Best Customer Premise Equipment and achieves Best in Show at Telco TV Vision Awards

Cambridge, UK and Anaheim, CA - November 13, 2008: Amino Communications, the world leading IPTV platform supplier, is delighted to announce it has received two awards at Telco TV in Anaheim, CA. The Telco TV Vision award for Best Customer Premise Equipment was awarded to the AmiNET130M Set Top Box (STB). In addition the same product won the Best in Show accolade where it was considered to be the most innovative and would further the deployment and performance of IPTV solutions.

"We are very proud that our innovative IPTV solution has been recognised in this fast evolving industry," said Andrew Burke, CEO of Amino. 'The AmiNET130M is an excellent choice for Telcos when they are deploying high definition (HD) as it can lower costs. With HDMI as the only connector to the television, it is easy to self install and therefore avoids truck roll. Not only that, it looks fantastic. With the addition of the innovative Plug In DVR technology this truly is a world leading proposition. It proves that size does matter!" The AmiNET130M is a 100% digital, H.264, HD STB that acknowledges TV purchasing trends towards HD-ready flatscreens. It measures just 4.48 inches wide x 1.37 inches high and is based on the established, award winning Amino design. The AmiNET130M has a sleek and distinctive black extruded case.

As a sister product to Amino's AmiNET130, the AmiNET130M can offer Telcos the ability to deliver end-to-end digital HD TV as a multicast or on-demand multi-room video experience. With a choice of HD STBs, Telcos have the flexibility of which product to deploy depending on the type of television already present in the home.

"Amino is a great supporter of Telco TV. This is a great place for us to meet our customers and partners, as well as showcase our products," added Rick Sailor, VP Sales Americas for Amino. "This really is the icing on the cake. We have had a great show. This really helps to cement our position in the US market as we look forward to a great 2009."
