Amino partners with Trimedia for complete enterprise IPTV system

Corporate systems bring stakeholder communications into the 21st Century.

Cambridge, UK, 1 March 2006: Amino, leading IPTV set-top box supplier, has partnered with Trimedia Broadcast Ltd to provide an end-to-end system for corporate IPTV. This enables an internal communications system to be installed rapidly and without the risk of incompatibilities. Using a range of models from the AmiNET family of IPTV set-top boxes, Trimedia has already secured a number of prestigious deployments, including a bespoke in-house IPTV service for Discovery Networks Europe.

"Increasingly, the corporate world is turning to new technology in order to better communicate with its stakeholders and customers," commented John Donovan, MD, Trimedia. "By implementing a Trimedia captive audience network (CAN), using IPTV set-top box technology from Amino, businesses can deliver highly targeted advertising or informational services to different audiences, such as product information, stock market performance statistics or even sporting highlights."

This type of system replaces the traditional notice board or paper-based communications such as posters, which are static, time-consuming to update and may compromise the appearance of the site when old or damaged. The entire corporate IPTV system can be controlled from a single PC either remotely or in-house. This allows for information to be easily refreshed with announcements, time-sensitive offers or modified data. The AmiNET set-top boxes are small and discrete while allowing simple connectivity to a corporate CAT5 cable network. In deployments where the IPTV network is used for personal development, employees can control the pace of their learning through individual set-top boxes.

The announced deployment with Discovery Networks Europe offers a highly flexible approach by allowing any desk, meeting room or public area to access the IPTV service, including the "Business TV" channel with corporate messaging via each set-top box around the company.

Bob Giddy, CEO, Amino noted, "We enjoy a privileged partnership with Trimedia as our two companies share the same vision of pooling our engineering expertise in the IPTV arena to bring corporate messaging into the 21st Century." He continued, "By partnering with Amino, Trimedia is ideally placed to offer a complete service installation including network design, hardware installation and consultancy."
