Amino at the double with European deals
London-quoted Cambridge business Amino Technologies plc has secured fresh contracts in Germany and Finland. No financial details have been disclosed for either deal.
Amino, which provides digital TV entertainment and cloud solutions to network operators, has been chosen by Deutsche Glasfaser, the largest provider of fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) networks in Germany, to support the second phase rollout of its next-generation TV platform.
Deutsche Glasfaser, which provides greenfield FTTH services across Germany, is working with Amino to support the next stage of the deployment of its end-to-end TV platform, DGTV.
Following an initial launch of the platform in 2014, Deutsche Glasfaser has selected Amino to complement its existing platform, which is deployed as part of its triple-play bundle offering, and also as a white-labelled offering to wholesale customers, including ISPs and cable operators.
Amino will provide Deutsche Glasfaser with next-generation hardware capabilities via the Amino VIEW Aria 6 device, while addressing the sophisticated consumer demands from Deutsche Glasfaser subscribers by implementing Amino ENABLE software as part of the supporting software stack.
Launched earlier this year, the new Amino ENABLE ‘transformation software layer’ provides Deutsche Glasfaser a cost-effective way to provide state-of-the-art services across its entire customer base.
Amino is also now providing Finland-based operator DNA with both mobile and set-top box service delivery for its multiscreen TV.
DNA has further expanded its TV service with Amino’s MOVE cloud TV platform to support its recent launch of TV-hubi – its new Android TV 4K UHD device – in the home.
This provides customers with access to a range of services including all Finnish channels and a wide range of PayTV content, VoD and Network PVR. Other third-party apps like YouTubeTM, Deezer and Netflix are available from the Google PlayTM app store.
Amino has been working with DNA since 2010 in building its multiscreen TV service, which has been steadily growing in richness of the content and functionality as well as popularity in line with booming consumption of mobile data in the country.
Amino CEO Donald McGarva said: “DNA are a much-valued long term customer of ours and we have worked very closely with them to transition the capabilities of our MOVE platform to provide both mobile and now fixed line TV service delivery.
“This effectively streamlines their operations into one seamless platform and also showcases our strong systems integration and UX development skills in aligning a number of partners and creating a compelling new user Android TV experience for their customers.”
Amino’s MOVE cloud TV platform is deployed by a number of operators and provides a high performance, scalable and secure solution for operators seeking to deploy entertainment services to any screen, anywhere, anytime.
