Leading research report rates Amino as
top IPTV set-top box vendor.
Cambridge, UK, 9th September 2005: Amino Communications, the Cambridge-based IPTV (IP television) systems and software vendor, has been named top worldwide supplier of IP set-top boxes by US technology analyst organisation, ABI Research (www.abiresearch.com). The report also confirms Amino's position as the second largest volume supplier - a position achieved after only two years in the IPTV set-top box market.
In its recently-released 138-page report, "Set Top-Box Market Development for CATV, DBS, DTT and IP", ABI Research assessed the top ten IP set-top box vendors which had solutions in place during 2004. Each was analysed in accordance with 12 criteria including: number of successful deployments and trials, support of open standards, financial soundness, length of time in IPTV industry, regional focus and product features. Overall, Amino achieved the highest score in the survey.
In particular the report highlighted the breadth of the company's customer base which covers North America, Asia and Europe, as well as its partnerships with major system integrators, Telcos and infrastructure vendors.
Bob Giddy, Amino's CEO, commented, "We were one of the very first set-top box vendors in this business and in many respects were a major pioneer of the IPTV industry which is now growing very rapidly. We are very proud that one of the industry's leading research organisations has recognised our achievements."
