Netherlands-based Delta is deploying Amino’s Move TV delivery platform. The operator also signed a Partnership Agreement with Stoneroos for the STB application and to develop the iOS apps and Android apps
The Cambridge tech firm has been working closely with Delta on the transfer of its cable TV subscriber base to an all-IP based service model. Amino’s Move product has already been used to provide a multiscreen service to mobile and tablet devices. It’s now managing its complete service delivery through Amino’s 6 series 4K/UHD compatible IPTV device.
Delta CTO Karl Heinz van der Made said: “Delta is pleased with the knowledge and expertise of Amino and the way they have developed our new interactive TV platform. With this offer, our customers have all the freedom and endless possibilities to watch TV wherever and whenever they want. With the latest on-demand capabilities, our customers get a TV platform that excels in user-friendliness and delivers a highly personalised experience.”
Packages now include over 140 live TV channels, many of which have ‘replay TV’, allowing users to re-start live programmes and a full seven day ‘catch up’ TV service. Up to 250 hours of storage is also provided; ensuring customers can record their favourite content.
Amino CEO Donald McGarva said: “We have worked very closely with Delta on this major transformation project. This is a clear demonstration of our enhanced capabilities as a business and our ability to deliver complex cable-IP transformation solutions to forward thinking operators seeking to transition from cable to an all IP future. We look forward to working closely with Delta as they roll out their service.”
Amino now plans to help Delta further expand its offer. Hilversum-based developer Stoneroos is responsible for the set-top box application. When viewing the new IPTV service on a regular TV set, people need the STB, but for all other devices the Delta TV is a true TV Everywhere service, as reported in Broadband TV News.
The deployment also marks the start of a Partnership Agreement between Delta and Stoneroos. Within this framework agreement, Delta gives Stoneroos assignments to also develop the iOS apps and Android apps for smartphones, tablets and web applications, which are expected in the coming months.
“Stoneroos is very proud that Delta has given us this comprehensive assignment, which makes it possible to enable its customers to take full advantage of all the possibilities offered by the digital network,” says Annelies Kaptein, General Manager and founder of Stoneroos.
