Amino, the global media and entertainment technology solutions provider, has announced a collaboration with app-based pay-TV video streaming platform, MOBITV. The solution will be commercially available in Q4.
App-based solutions are increasingly becoming a more viable and cost-effective route to launching next-generation video services. MOBITV CONNECT is such a solution that delivers value to operators through a full end-to-end platform and simplifies the cost and internal support structure of operators by addressing today’s complex video environments. The joint Amino and MOBITV-powered service addresses both operator and consumer demand for alternative video delivery solutions and allows subscribers to enjoy a wide selection of streaming content services.
By upcycling deployed devices with the latest version of AminoOS Enable, operators can cost-effectively adapt to market demand for services that deliver linear channels and streaming content to multiple screens in the home or on the go. Amino’s streamlined upcycling process leverages a proven professional services methodology to centrally manage the updating of device software on distributed legacy devices. AminoOS Engage also provides ongoing device management and enhances customer service and support. Amino OS works with the MobiTV SaaS platform to transform these deployed assets into another part of the multiscreen ecosystem.
“We are excited to partner with MOBITV and give our operator customers new options for expanding their video service offerings using existing devices to deliver the enhanced service offerings subscribers expect,” said Amino CEO Donald McGarva. “By enabling operators to offer exciting next generation services such as MobiTV with a relatively modest additional investment, we’re extending the life of installed devices: a highly significant CAPEX benefit.”
“We continue to focus on giving operators new options for delivering video services through whichever device they choose,” said Bill Routt, COO and President, MOBITV “Our partnership with Amino expands our approach, recognising that both operators and subscribers need video services that bring the best of both legacy linear and OTT streaming.”
