Amino outgrows APAC offices
Company relocation reflects regional IPTV growth
Cambridge, UK, 21st November 2005: Amino, global leader in set-top box technology and software for the IPTV industry, has announced the recent expansion of its Asia Pacific (APAC) office, based in Hong Kong. The relocation to larger premises in Tsim Sha Tsui, Kowloon reflects the increased growth of the IPTV market in this region and significant success in winning new deployments with Asian service operators. The Hong Kong-based team is expected to grow further in 2006, to satisfy the increased demand for Amino's award-winning AmiNET product range and engineering expertise.
The APAC office move follows just three months after the US arm of the company, Amino Communications LLC, tripled its office space by relocating to a new 5000 square foot facility in Atlanta. The new Hong Kong office is strategically located by the harbour, in front of the famous Peninsula Hotel.
Jeff Tan, general manager, sales (APAC) for Amino commented, the IPTV industry in Asia is booming and Telcos and system integrators are looking at service providers with proven technology, which can be implemented quickly to satisfy the growing consumer demand. He continued, Our reputation for enhanced interoperability with middleware and conditional access partners as well as the success of other regional deployments have made Amino an attractive partner for Asian Telcos looking to deploy triple-play services.
Amino is the global leader for making the smallest, most attractive, high-performance IP set-top boxes on the market. Fundamental to this success has been Amino's ability to develop a highly stable, industry proven, versatile software stack, to be portable across a variety of silicon platforms. Asia is spawning many independent set-top box and gateway manufacturers who understand that the software stack is the key factor behind a successful set-top box design, they look to Amino to provide a turn-key, licensable, software solution.
A recent report published by Infonetics Research states that the IPTV industry is set to skyrocket, reaching 53.7million global subscribers and $44billion in service revenue by 2009. The Asia Pacific region is identified in the same report as a region experiencing particularly strong levels of subscriber growth, largely due to the advanced DSL technologies such as VDSL and ADSL2, already in place.
