Amino and Intracom bag major European IPTV contract

UK set-top box firm Amino and Greek telecoms equipment vendor Intracom Telecom have won a new contract for the delivery of high-definition IPTV set-top boxes to an unnamed but “major” South Eastern European operator, which will support the latter’s rapid deployment of IPTV across several countries.

The new IPTV service will deliver a mix of live TV, premier sports channels, video-on-demand and a rich set of “infotainment” services to end-users. Amino is to supply MPEG-2/MPEG-4 IPTV set-top boxes, while Intracom will provide its Full-Service Content Distribution Network (fs|cdn) platform.

Amino CEO Donald McGarva said: “This new contract underlines the importance of our combined approach with ecosystem partners to support major operators with their deployment plans. We’re very pleased to continue building our strong relationship with both Intracom Telecom and the operator in the delivery of great entertainment experiences.”
