IPTV specialist Amino Communications, a major supplier of STBs to Tier 3 operators in the U.S., will showcase its new Amino Freedom hybrid/Over-the-top media center at NAB 2010 in Las Vegas next week.
The company will demo the device, which recently won the "Best Consumer Device" award at the IPTV World Forum in London, and was recognized for "offering the most comprehensive, cost-efficient and user friendly solution to the challenge of delivering online content in a seamless, integrated and user-friendly manner to the consumer's living room."
The Amino Freedom allows access to all major formats of Internet-delivered video and to a vast number of applications, including social media, and integrating them in a unified GUI together with locally stored music, video and pictures, and DVR functionalities such as time-shift recording of multiple channels, pause live TV and push-VOD. The DVB-T hybrid media center, which features an Intel Atom processor CE4100--the same processor some say Google is rumored to be using in its own Google TV project--has been specially designed to help meet growing consumer demand for TV-based OTT delivery.
"The Amino Freedom is being very well received within the industry with a significant contract and industry awards already secured," said CEO Andrew Burke. "Operators and service providers are now looking at the delivery of OTT content as a key differentiator in their offering and we look forward to demonstrating its capabilities to visitors to NAB."
The company provides entertainment solutions for pure and hybrid IPTV, OTT Internet video and in-home multimedia distribution. Amino delivers a range of set-top boxes and software to over 800 customers in 80 countries, including telecoms operators, service providers, broadcast, enterprise and hospitality companies. Amino boasts the industry's widest range of pre-integrated IPTV ecosystems, enabling its customers to offer profitable, scalable and targeted video services.
