CAMBRIDGE, UK -- Amino, leaders in IPTV, today announces that it has acquired Booxmedia, the Finland-based cloud TV platform provider, enabling the company to offer “TV everywhere” solutions to new market segments in OTT multiscreen TV.
Industry analysts forecast major growth in TV viewing on mobile devices with predictions of a 13-fold increase over the next five years. Looking further ahead, analysts predict mobile video will account for more than 20 per cent of total viewing minutes by 2025.
