Amino unveils virtual STB software
May 18, 2017
Amino, the IP/Cloud video software and device specialist, has announced that its new Amino Enable virtual set-top box software is empowering TV operators to migrate to an all IP/Cloud future. By upcycling existing set-top boxes and eliminating installation costs, Amino says Enable will save TV operators “billions of dollars in CAPEX and help them keep pace with sophisticated consumer demands”.
“As we move into the era of all IP/Cloud television and video, the massive barrier facing operators across the globe is the millions of legacy set-top boxes they are invested in,” says Donald McGarva, Amino’s Chief Executive. “It’s upcycle or die, as these installed STBs need to be brought into the modern multiscreen, multi-device, multi-service world – but the expense of doing so is chilling. Most players need a cost-effective way to provide state-of-the-art services across their entire customer base. Enable gives them the ability to do that and shift towards a world in which all applications and services can be delivered over IP, on-demand from the Cloud to any device, anytime, anywhere.”
It will have its public debut at Broadcast Asia and ANGA this month.
