IPTV and hybrid/OTT innovator Amino Communications is to integrate VUDU’s subscription-free, video-on-demand movie service into its powerful Live Home Media Centre IPTV platform.
The new service element will allow Amino’s network operator customers to deliver VUDU’s extensive catalogue of blockbusters, Hollywood classics and independent films to customers deploying the powerful new IPTV set-top box.
Pre-integrated with user interfaces from leading middleware providers, consumers will be able to step seamlessly into the rich world of HD movies without a subscription. The dual core power of the Live platform allows for VUDU content delivery without compromising traditional middleware features such as recording and multiscreen streaming.
Amino CEO Donald McGarva said: “This landmark agreement with a global leader will be warmly welcomed by our customers as they strive to deliver new and innovative services. VUDU’s brand and content is a hugely exciting addition to our Live Home Media Centre and we look forward to introducing this powerful combination of device and rich content to the market.”
VUDU – the content delivery and media technology company owned by Walmart – also offers users to a wide range of access to Rotten Tomatoes reviews, Wikipedia movie details, current theatrical trailers, free previews plus strong parental controls.
The Live Home Media Centre is Amino’s new high performance IPTV platform. Designed to extend and enhance operator service offerings, the IPTV device combines cutting edge user experiences, the new Amino TV Apps store and seamless multiscreen capability – all driven by 10 times the processing power of a standard set-top box.
