The Netherlands first Android TV service is being powered by Amino and subsidiary 24i, the tech firm has confirmed.
Youfone has been able to refresh its user experience in just a five-month period, rather than the typical 12-18 month period, reducing Capex and introducing new features into the market.
“A key advantage of the 24i and Amino solution is that it is truly end-to-end: covering all the functions we need from content ingest, encoding and transcoding, management, customer care, content distribution, all the software required from front-end to back end and even the set-top boxes serving our TV viewing customers,” explained Rensing.
Powered by the 24i Video Experience Platform, Amino 7x Android set-top boxes, and Amino OS, this is the first deployment of the joint 24i and Amino cloud-based solution which enables video delivery from any source to any device.
Youfone initially launched its TV service in 2017. It approached 24i and Amino in December 2019 to deliver an expanded TV and OTT offering.
Their involvement runs from smart set-top-Box hardware, service management, backend and UI layer. Functionality includes transcoding, middleware, CDN, and front-end applications for Android, iOS phones, and tablets; enabling live TV, catchup, restart and nPVR for approximately 100 channels.
It’s the first joint deployment announced since 24i became an Amino Technologies group company in July 2019.
