announce the integration of Orb’s MyCasting service with Amino’s AmiNET110 and AmiNET125 set-top boxes to unlock all the digital content on users’ PCs. With Amino’s cutting-edge AmiNET range of products, users can enjoy all the media they currently watch on their PCs – videos, movies, music, even Internet websites – on their TVs.
The AmiNET110 is the most popular and proven IP STB in the world with an award-winning design. The Orb application integrated with the AmiNET110 allows consumers access to personal media on the PC, as well as streamed media delivered over the open Internet. The resulting product closes the gap between the STB and the PC, using the Orb MyCast application platform as the bridge. The MyCasting service is also now available with the AmiNET125, Amino’s second generation multi-codec STB. This allows MPEG-2/4 and VC1/WM9 content to be streamed in native format from the PC to the TV, enabling even older PCs with less horsepower to benefit from the Orb MyCasting application.
Orb MyCasting and Amino’s STBs enable a much more compelling choice of services in comparison to traditional TV programming. Users can:
- Watch home movies and videos, as well as thousands of Internet TV stations, now unlocked for display on the big screen TV
- Search for and watch the entire online video catalog from main providers such as YouTube, Yahoo, AOL Videos and more
- Record Internet TV programming to watch on your living room TV
- Enjoy your photos from your PC on your TV, share them with family and friends, or watch their own media selection on your TV
- Listen to your entire music library, streamed across the home
