As it focuses on high margin, cash generative business, Amino Technologies has secured a significant new contract to provide set-top boxes to an unnamed European telco.
Only days after revealing that it expects to deliver a profit for the year “in line with market expectations” on the back of revenues in the region of £41 million, the IPTV, over-the-top (OTT) and in-home multimedia distribution solutions provider will deploy its Live media gateway platform as part of an enhanced offering delivering a range of pay-TV services.
Launched in September 2012, the Live media gateway is claimed to be the first hybrid/OTT media gateway to be powered by the Intel Atom CE 5300 media processor combining dual core processing power with transcoding and encoding capabilities and whose hardware virtualisation features allow multiple virtual machines to run at full speed. The device also has a secure Linux environment for the delivery of pay-TV video, and a controlled Android virtual machine to support a wide range of OTT applications and services.
Commenting on the deal, Donald McGarva, CEO of Amino said: "This is a breakthrough contract with a large and growing operator. They recognise that the combination of trusted and secure Aminet pay-TV performance - and a proven global Android apps development environment - offers an exciting new way to secure and grow their customer base with a powerful multiscreen entertainment offering."
