(Telcotv, Las Vegas, 10 November 2010) Amino Communications, the world’s leading developer of pure IPTV and hybrid/OTT devices and solutions, today won a prestigious US industry award for its Amino Freedom hybrid/OTT media centre.
The company picked up a TelcoTV Vision Award for “Best Customer Premise Equipment” at the TelcoTV show in Las Vegas, the largest video conference and expo focused on the US service provider market. The awards judging panel – which included leading industry executives and analysts – selected the Amino Freedom as the most innovative and “visionary” product in a highly competitive market segment.
The Amino Freedom – which is being demonstrated on Amino’s booth #431 at the show – features the Intel® Atom™ processor CE4100 and has been specially designed to help meet growing consumer demand for TV-based “Over-The-Top” (OTT) video entertainment. Powered by the first generation of Intel® and Nokia’s MeeGo™ for the TV, the powerful device has been designed to support common Internet formats such as Adobe® Flash® and Microsoft® Silverlight®.
Amino CEO Andrew Burke said: “We are delighted to have won this coveted award at such an important event in the US telecoms market. OTT is a big theme at the show this year and it’s very encouraging to see the award judges acknowledge our market-leading position with the powerful Amino Freedom proposition. This is the second major industry award for the Amino Freedom this year and we look forward to showcasing it to visitors to TelcoTV.”
“This year’s TelcoTV Vision Award winners clearly delivered products and services that enable profitability in a multi-screen world,” said Joe Braue, Senior Vice President and Group Director for Light Reading, which produces the TelcoTV conference and exhibition. “Our judging panel was comprised of an elite team of service providers, journalists, and analysts. They developed a short list of the best carrier video products and services for 2010 that operators should carefully evaluate in the coming year.”
Earlier this year, the company picked up “Best Consumer Device” at the IPTV World Series Awards in London for the Amino Freedom.
