EMERYVILLE, Calif. and CAMBRIDGE, U.K. -- Amino, the world leading IPTV platform supplier, and Orb Networks announced today the integration of Orb's MyCasting service with Amino's AmiNET110 and AmiNET125 set-top boxes (STBs) 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.

"We are happy to be working with Amino to bring media convergence to the TV", said Herve Utheza, VP and Executive Producer, TV Properties, Orb Networks. "With Orb, Amino's product line will enable a single STB to manage IPTV, pay TV, PC media including movies, videos, user-generated videos, and even web browsing, directly to the TV through a unified user interface. Service operators can bring their own branded version of Orb to their customer base, and let them appreciate the depth and breadth of what IP television can deliver."

"Orb's technology was integrated seamlessly with Amino's versatile IntAct(TM) client software stack to bridge the gap between the television and PC," said Karthik Ranjan, Vice President, Internet TV, Amino. "This partnership expands the boundaries of television, allowing cable companies and other service operators to offer their consumers an exciting and diverse range of services."
