Onwards and upwards for Amino in the USA

Greater US presence for the Cambridge-based IPTV company

Cambridge, UK, 17 August 2005: After barely more than a year in the North American market, Amino Communications, the Cambridge-based IPTV (IP television) systems and software supplier, is tripling its USA office space in line with rapid sales growth and an expanding workforce. The company currently employs ten staff in the USA and this figure is set to expand with the move to the new 5000 square foot facility in Atlanta on August 15.

At the end of May 2005, Amino had a backlog of 328,000 set-top boxes, and 11 customers each had over 10,000 unit installations. Furthermore, the company's products had been adopted for field trials by 144 operators worldwide.

Roy Kirsopp, CEO of Amino Communications LLC, commented, "We have experienced tremendous success in the US in the year or so since we established our presence here. However, to cope with this ever-increasing demand and offer full applications and customer support, we need to take on a lot more staff. When Amino opened its Atlanta offices in May 2004 it had a staff of just three which has now risen to ten, so the move is essential".

IPTV, for which Amino provides software and set-top boxes, is becoming popular with the media and general public alike, with the number of deployments across the world growing rapidly. New and improved telecommunication infrastructures mean that more than ever before, IPTV is becoming an achievable option for Telcos, which benefit from increased revenue opportunities such as triple-play.
