PARTNERSHIP TO BUILD IP STBs WITH CHENGDU USEE

Amino Technologies PLC ("Amino" or "the Company"; stock code: AMO), the Cambridge based broadband network software and systems company, announces that it has entered into a Memorandum of Understanding ("MoU") with Chengdu USEE Digital Technology Co. Ltd. ("USEE"), a broadband multimedia company based in the People's Republic of China ("PRC").

Under the terms of the MoU, Amino and USEE plan to collaborate closely in respect of development, production, marketing and sales to provide broadband network added value services within the PRC. The agreement provides for the progressive development of the relationship. Initial orders have been received from USEE for 10,000 IP Multimedia Terminal Devices (set-top boxes) for delivery in early 2007; significant additional orders for delivery during 2007 are expected. These orders will start to contribute to revenue and profit in Amino's 2007 financial year.

Amino and USEE will also co-develop additional products incorporating Amino's IntAct software stack in order to provide applications such as AVS (advanced audio and video standard) codec technology, video telephone application (VTA), VoIP, gaming, etc. The AVS codec technology will be developed by Amino using software codec expertise gained from the acquisition of SJ Consulting last January.

Bob Giddy, Amino's CEO said: "We are pleased to collaborate with USEE, a highly qualified partner with a valuable market presence within the PRC. This agreement has great potential for further development and reflects the work Amino has been doing within the PRC over the past two years."

Mr Hai Tao, USEE's General Manager commented "Amino has a unique experience with worldwide deployments, proven technology and the most robust client software available, that could be well integrated into USEE's platform to serve the Chinese market."
