Amino, Opera Team on TV App store
CAMBRIDGE, U.K. -- Amino Communications, leader in IPTV, is to partner with web company Opera Software in the delivery of the new Amino TV App Store for its Live Home Media Centre – powered by Opera Software’s Opera TV Store application platform, and providing hundreds of free apps in a simple to integrate new service layer for pay-TV operators.
Showcasing at IBC 2013, the Amino TV App Store offers great “lean-back” content accessible by a standard TV remote, including Vimeo, Dailymotion channels and a wide range of gaming, entertainment and infotainment apps – all pre-certified by Opera for immediate use.
An Amino API enables the app store to be easily integrated with a wide range of middleware solutions, delivering a seamless user experience when moving between middleware and apps. Operators can also customise the app store experience for their customers – selecting which apps to provide, adding their own apps and creating an app storefront with their own branding.
This is the latest enhancement to the Live Home Media Centre, which has been shortlisted for the Connected World TV awards at IBC. Combining dual-core processing power with multi-screen distribution, the Live device delivers content seamlessly to TVs, smartphones and tablets around the home.
