Amino Communications announced that it has selected Celeno Communications, a leading provider of semiconductors for multimedia Wi-Fi home networking applications, to provide a range of wireless products that complement Amino’s range of award-winning IPTV set-top boxes (STBs).
Celeno's OptimizAIR technology will help Amino offer whole home Wi-Fi networking robust enough for HD IPTV distribution, multi-room DVR and Over the Top (OTT) video and Video on Demand (VoD) consumption anywhere in the home.
Amino and Celeno will offer the following wireless solutions in the market place:
- Wi-Fi/Ethernet bridges powered by Celeno’s CL1830 SoC to wirelessly enable after-market IP STBs, including the Aminet A130, A140 and A540. These powerful bridges will enable whole-home wireless PVR functionality, allowing the consumption of centrally stored content anywhere in the home.
- Wi-Fi/USB dongles powered by Celeno’s CLR250 chip to wirelessly enable after-market IP STBs to receive HD IPTV and OTT content.
“With Celeno’s field-proven Wi-Fi technology and rich Wi-Fi chipset portfolio, we are able to offer our Telco customers devices that combine all the quality they’ve come to expect from Amino devices with additional wireless functionality,” said Amino’s CEO Donald McGarva.
“Our Wi-Fi portfolio provides superior home networking infrastructure to customers such as Amino, combining high performance for flicker-free video with the flexibility and ease of use required by consumers,” said Gilad Rozen, CEO of Celeno.
Amino recently announced it would enhance its entire IPTV product range with OTT capability to deliver a richer, more dynamic entertainment experience for consumers. All Amino devices now provide operators with the ability to offer a compelling mix of broadcast, on-demand, and content from the open Internet including social media, gaming and applications.
