DELTA, the Netherlands-based triple-play and energy provider, is deploying Amino’s MOVE TV delivery platform to provide a full end-to-end solution to deliver multiscreen entertainment services. Amino has worked closely with DELTA to transition its existing cable TV subscriber base to an all-IP service model. The company has also helped the service provider add new new features and user experience improvements to the TV service alongside an extended range of live, on-demand and OTT content.
DELTA already uses Amino MOVE to provide a ‘TV Everywhere’ solution for mobile and tablet viewing. Now the company will use the platform to manage its entire entertainment service delivery, both outside the home and into the home, including for television set viewing harnessing the Amino 6 4K/UHD compatible IPTV gateway.
The DELTA packages now include over 140 live TV channels, many of which have start-over functionality and seven day ‘catch up. Up to 250 hours of storage is also provided on the new set-top box/gateway.
The Hilversum-based TV software provider Stoneroos is providing the user interface for the entire video service, on both the set-top box and multiscreen devices. This includes the programme guide. Stoneroos is due to develop iOS and Android client apps for multiscreen viewing on smartphones, tablets and web.
DELTA’s CTO, Karl Heinz van der Made said: “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, they get a TV platform that excels in user-friendliness and delivers a highly personalized experience. We are pleased with the knowledge and expertise shown by Amino and the way they have developed our new interactive TV platform.”
Amino CEO Donald McGarva adds: “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.”
