Amino launches the AmiNET130M, the market’s first 100% digital HD IPTV STB, at the NXTcomm conference in Las Vegas. With HDMI as the only available method of connection to the TV, the AmiNET130M is cheaper and simpler to install than other HD IPTV STBs. As a result, for any service provider whose primary proposition is HD the AmiNET130M lowers the cost of connecting a customer.
The AmiNET130M acknowledges that TV purchasing trends have shifted significantly towards HD-ready flatscreens, and the product complements the AmiNET130 which supports a full range of traditional TV connectors. The AmiNET130M retains all of the other benefits of it’s sister product, including offering service providers the ability to deliver end-to-end digital HD TV as a multicast or on-demand multi-room video experience. Like the AmiNET130, the AmiNET130M supports MPEG-4, allowing channels and services to reach customers over longer distances or when they have lower bandwidth broadband connections.
