Google Certification for next generation devices


Amino, the global provider of media and entertainment technology solutions to network operators, announces that its next-generation devices have received Google Operator Tier Android certification and will be showcased at NAB show 2019.


AminoOS, the Company's software solution for deploying and managing connected devices, powers Amino's next generation devices. This gives pay-TV operators the device agility to customize and brand an advanced user interface via an Android TV deployment, as well as access to all the latest features and functionality including more than 150 premium over-the-top (OTT) apps.


Amino's 'Operator Ready' Android TV solution is designed to provide managed delivery of linear and streaming video services, while supporting integration with legacy network environments. It is an extended and enhanced version of the platform that integrates with an operator's existing infrastructure and networks through additional specialist backend support. 'Operator Ready' Android TV delivers a full set of software extensions to Android TV that enable plug and play into existing legacy systems - as well as Amino's suite of cloud-based service management tools, which simplify installs and reduce support related operating costs.

·      A fully compliant AndroidTV software stack based on Google reference design SDKs

·      Latest version of Android TV platform and Operator Tier certifications

·      Licensed GTVS suite of applications including PlayStore, Play Movie, Play Music and YouTube

·      Customized Google Setup with operator branding

·      remote controls with voice command and search

·      Bluetooth (BLE 4.0) pairing capabilities.


Differentiating 'Operator Ready' features include:

·      Legacy middleware platform integration

·      Legacy network integration (e.g., IGMP Mulitcast, Multicast ABR)

·      Fast channel change

·      Engage Service Assurance, a cloud-enabled platform delivering device software, firmware and configuration management


Donald McGarva, Chief Executive Officer, said:


"Having Google's Operator Tier certification through AminoOS is critical to giving small and medium pay-TV operators the ability to create branded user experiences for their subscribers. AminoOS is at the heart of our 'Operator Ready' Android TV solution, which enables providers to painlessly and cost-effectively deliver the modern TV experiences their subscribers demand."
