Amino Communications has been selected by Vodafone Iceland to supply it with HD set-tops as part of an upgrade to the IPTV platform.
Vodafone Iceland currently uses Amino’s A110 devices, but will in future take the Amino A140 SD/HD STBs. The platform offers 100 broadcast channels, along with catch-up TV and video-on-demand.
“Amino has been a valued partner in our successful rollout of IPTV services and both the box design and functionality has been very well received by our customers,” said Vodafone Iceland’s Jóhann Snorri Sigurbergsson. “The new A140 is a logical choice for our next phase, offering advanced performance that is aligned with our plans to deliver the best entertainment experience to our customers.”
Amino CEO Andrew Burke added that the company’s next generation product had won acceptence from customers at home and abroad. “Using the latest SoC design is giving us a crucial competitive edge – particularly when wedded to our traditional discrete form factor.”
Despite running other IPTV operations in Germany and Spain, Vodafone has taken a distinctly local approach when choosing suppliers.
