Amino Enables OTT Set-Tops for IBC

Amino Communications will showcase a range of enhanced IPTV set-top boxes at IBC 2011 offering OTT capability. All Amino devices - from its Freedom media centers offering OTT functionality to the cable, satellite and terrestrial markets through to the Aminet IPTV range - are intended to provide a mix of broadcast, on-demand, and content from the open Internet including social media, gaming and applications.

The IPTV devices will utilize both HLS (HTTP Live Streaming) and HTML5 to deliver the new layer of OTT content. The new enhanced range also includes HTTP upgrade capability allowing set-top boxes to be remotely upgraded automatically with the latest firmware. The OTT-enabled Aminet set-top boxes include the A129, A140 and A540 PVR and the H140 hospitality device.
