Kabelnoord Selects Amino Video Platform for Fibre Rollout

Dutch cable operator Kabelnoord has announced it will deploy Amino’s Move end-to-end multiscreen video platform to enable it to offer what it describes as “next-generation TV services” as part of a major rollout of its fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) network. The operator already provides a mix of DVB-C and fibre-based services to almost 30,000 customers in Friesland in the Netherlands and will shortly undertake a major expansion of its footprint in the region, having secured a contract to provide FTTH to a further 20,000 homes.

In addition, Kabelnoord will deploy its TV services to an adjacent broadband network operator in Groningen, covering another 15,000 homes.

Amino’s Move platform enables operators to deliver a “TV-everywhere” user experience including live, on-demand, catch-up and cloud-recorded content over any IP network.

Kabelnoord will deploy the end-to-end platform, including transcoding, media backend, web services and a new user interface to deliver services via Amino’s Kamai 7 technology, powered by the company’s Enable software stack, as well as Android and iOS.

The new service will be launched in the second half of the year.
