Amino reorganisation establishes IntAct Software Ltd

Company creates independent business to license its proven IPTV technology

Cambridge, UK, 20 April 2006: Amino Technologies PLC has established an independent business, IntAct Software Limited to license its IntActTM software solutions to set-top box (STB) OEMs and ODMs, semiconductor manufacturers, service operators and system integrators. In addition, service operators and integrators may also licence Amino's award-winning set-top box designs with unique signature form factor through IntAct Software Ltd.

The IntActTM IPTV solution consists of both a client software stack and IP STB server management tools which represent the culmination of more than 150 man-years of product development, third party interoperability and pre-integration. This ensures that IPTV operators can use IntAct with the widest range of middleware, conditional access, silicon, head-end system and browser technology. This pre-established interoperability, linked with IntAct's lean architecture, drives down the deployment costs and reduces the time to market of the complete IPTV system. Therefore operators see a return on their investment much faster and can source equipment powered by IntAct from a number of suppliers, further lowering the risks associated with IPTV service deployment.

IntActTM has been successfully deployed in more than 500,000 set-top boxes in 80 commercial roll-outs. It has been ported onto six silicon platforms, in multiple software configurations, in MPEG2 and MPEG4 H.264, standard and high definition formats.

"The number of volume deployments of IPTV networks should increase significantly in 2007 enabling local manufacture that brings associated reductions in import costs and multi-sourcing of set-top boxes operating a common software solution to ensure service reliability. IntAct offers its licensees these benefits," commented Karthik Ranjan, Vice President Sales and Marketing, IntAct. "The IntAct software stack and hardware reference designs are already established leaders in the market, with more than 500,000 IntAct-enabled set-top boxes deployed. By licensing them separately, we intend to bring increased choice and flexibility to the market while reducing risk, financial cost and time associated with IPTV service deployments."
