Amino shows great vision
Amino, the Cambridge IPTV set-top box supplier, is set to bring affordable High Definition (HD) TV services with the launch of the world’s first single-chip HD AVC/H.264 IPTV STB specifically designed for the global hospitality industry.
Hospitality service providers have always had the desire to adopt HD, but this used to require expensive PC-based STBs.
The AmiNET130H will substantially lower the costs and accelerate the mass rollout of HD across the industry. The innovative AmiNET130H is modelled on the highly successful AmiNET110H design, widely deployed in hotels worldwide.
The AmiNET130H will allow hotels to maximise individual guest value through the provision of premium HD content and increase overall system ROI. The product will begin shipping in volume in Q3.
Roy Kirsopp, VP and general manager of Amino Communications, said: “When people stay in hotels, especially the prestige locations that we believe will be early adopters of HD AVC IPTV, they expect the entire guest experience, including the quality of entertainment, to be a class above what they can enjoy at home.
“Guests are demanding services such as early releases of premium HD Hollywood movies and HD internet browsing on the TV.”
