Amino showcases latest IPTV and Internet TV platforms at IBC 2006

Cambridge, UK - 6th September 2006 - Amino, leading IPTV platform supplier, will be displaying innovative technology including the world's first demonstration of Amino's Internet TV device named AmiNET125i and the new fully featured SD multi-codec AmiNET125 IPTV STB.

  • AmiNET125i: Internet TV

    The AmiNET125i is a flexible device allowing consumers to browse and access video content from the Internet on their television.

    The demonstration will go live at 3:30pm on Friday 8th September during Amino's official 'on stand' launch event. It will feature content from Narrowstep (web portal using 'mobile format') streamed from a video server on an AmiNET125i STB with Windows Media 9 / internet browser. The concept shows how an advanced, elegantly designed, multi-codec STB can be used to make the transition from an IPTV environment to Internet TV. Amino will be showing how this solution can transform the way partners deliver their services and enhance their business.

  • AmiNET125: fully featured SD multi-codec IPTV STB

    The AmiNET125 is Amino's new fully featured SD multi-codec IPTV STB and also the technology base for the AmiNET125i (described above). The AmiNET125 provides support for a wider range of middleware and CA options than the successful AmiNET124 and also includes sufficient power to enable H.264 decoding and a responsive UI. The device also enables operators upgrading seamlessly from MPEG-2 to MPEG-4 without a hardware truck roll.

    Amino is responding to the needs of the IPTV market for multi-codec devices supporting SD video streams. The AmiNET125 offers operators greatly increased return on investment (ROI) and average revenue per user (ARPU) through the provision of support for future services and a low-cost, powerful hardware blueprint.

  • AmiNET130 and AmiNET131: MPEG-4 HD IPTV STBs

    The AmiNET130 and AmiNET131 are fully featured AVC HD IPTV STBs. Amino's demo at IBC will show both devices' HD video and HD graphics capability.

    Amino technology will also be present in demonstrations by numerous world-class partners at IBC.
