The AmiNET A140 - the next generation MPEG-2 and MPEG-4 high definition IPTV/OTT set-top-box (STB) for HD deployments.
High definition capability and OTT functionality are becoming must have features in new IPTV deployments worldwide. The Aminet A140 is a cost-effective HD STB that provides the perfect balance between price, specification and high performance. Stylish and compact, the Aminet A140 now enables IPTV providers to deliver a compelling mix of broadcast, on-demand and OTT services with new features including HTTP live streaming (HLS) and HTML5 technologies.
The A140 is complemented by an extensive range of set-top-box middleware, browsers, conditional access and DRM options. All STB functions can be controlled from a browser using the Amino JMACX system.
Flat-panel TVs have rapidly evolved in recent years from standard definition to HD Ready and now Full HD. The A140 can decode resolutions up to 1080i 60Hz but is also able to de-interlace content and display it progressively - such as de-interlacing 1080i to 1080p - to deliver the picture quality your customers expect on their high-end LCD and Plasma TVs.
Advanced CODEC Support
The support of low bitrate advanced video codecs provides operators with the opportunity to grow revenue generating services, while maximising the efficient use of network bandwidth, creating the ability to:
- Reach a greater number of subscribers
- Increase the number of interactive and multicast channels
- Enhance viewing experience with HD channels.
The A140 is a very compact STB, but is able to deliver high performance, along with the required connectivity including; analogue AV, HDMI, USB & S/PDIF. The unique Amino styling sits elegantly with any latest top-specification AV equipment in the living room.
Extensive ecosystem support
The A140 is supported by an extensive ecosystem of middleware, browser, conditional access and DRM options required for the widely varying configurations of the IPTV market.
Comprehensive design tools and support
Software updates and maintenance
The A140 holds a complete software image in on-board flash memory, and is also designed to support secure bootstrap from a multicast server. At any time, a deployed A140 can be upgraded with a new software image via the secure multicast server. The multicast approach ensures that very large numbers of deployed set-top boxes can be upgraded without placing an individual load on the server or the network. For security, software images can be signed with keys unique to each deployment.
