Amino, the global media and entertainment technology solutions provider, is enabling OPTAGE, the Japanese telecommunications, cable TV, and FTTH broadband connectivity operator in the Kansai region, to launch modern Android TV and Netflix OTT services.
Android TV enables OPTAGE to integrate streaming apps and deliver video services that provide richer experiences and a next-generation UI. Amino combines the AminoOS powered Amigo 7X with Amino Engage to deliver and manage all the Android TV features OPTAGE needs. Adding to its strong heritage in cable TV, OPTAGE leveraged Amino’s Amigo 7X to allow its subscribers to benefit from Netflix and the Google Play Store apps, including YouTube, while keeping the consumers within its OPTAGE branded Android TV Operator Tier environment.
As a Netflix Hailstorm partner, Amino guarantees an optimal experience to OPTAGE customers using Netflix, enhancing the consumer experience while minimizing integration efforts and time-to-market. In addition, Amino manages the Android TV certification of the device and platform through incorporating all the necessary delivery protocols, players, and more. By driving both Android TV and Netflix certifications, Amino supports OPTAGE throughout the entire project life cycle and minimizes time-to-market.
“We are delighted to be supporting OPTAGE in launching next-generation OTT experiences for its customers. Our Amigo 7X isn’t just running the most powerful middleware and management suite on the market but is also fully certified by Google and Netflix Hailstorm,” said Amino CEO, Donald McGarva. “This means that operators like OPTAGE can make cutting-edge TV services accessible to their customers faster, unlocking new opportunities. We’re excited to be helping OPTAGE drive the modernization of TV in Japan.”
