Latens and Amino Integrate to Provide a Secured Next Generation Set-Top Box

Belfast & Cambridge, UK, November 15, 2004: Latens and Amino today announce the integration of Latens Content & Revenue protection systems and Amino's set-top box architecture. The integration will provide IPTV operators with a proven and reliable system that combines next generation, software-based content protection with Amino's cutting edge set-top box solutions. This joint solution ensures that content owners can be confident that their property is protected while the operator has the greatest possible flexibility in business models as well as reducing set-up and running costs. Initially, the integration will cover Amino's AmiNET110 range of IPTV set-top boxes, but will expand to encompass PVR and home networking solutions.

“We've integrated our technology with Amino because, as a world-class technology provider, it's crucial that we work with other world leaders, such as Amino, to make it even easier for operators choose our Content & Revenue Protection,” says Andy Mathieson, Director, Latens. “The Amino integration has progressed quickly and easily and I'm now looking forward to our first joint customer.”
