Amino and 24i to evolve Youfone's TV offering
Fully integrated, end to end video solution enables the Dutch mobile network operator to provide a truly next-generation TV service
Amino, the technology provider for modern TV experiences, announces that Amino and 24i, the Group's global video experience business, have entered into an agreement with the Dutch MVNO Youfone to provide a fully-integrated, end-to-end video solution to refresh and expand its TV and OTT offering. This is the first joint Amino and 24i customer agreement since Amino acquired 24i in July 2019.
The Dutch TV challenger launched its TV services in 2017 and will now rely on 24i and Amino to create a next-generation viewing experience to meet and exceed the increasing demands of modern TV consumers. Youfone will deploy an end-to-end solution that combines Amino's IPTV and TV Everywhere expertise with 24i's leadership in video experience design and application development. 24i became an Amino group company in July 2019 and Youfone is the first joint-solution deployment to be announced. The Amino and 24i solution is expected to be live at Youfone in Q2 2020.
The solution will combine 24i's Smart Video and Smart App video experience products as well as Amino's Amigo 7x Android STBs running on AminoOS, all managed through ENGAGE, Amino's cloud-based service management platform. The deployment will provide transcoding, middleware, CDN and front-end applications for Android, iOS phones and tablets enabling live TV, catchup, restart and nPVR of approximately 100 channels.
"We are on a mission to challenge how TV services in the Netherlands are delivered by providing our customers with the most extensive and flexible viewing options combined with state-of-the-art features," said Valentijn Rensing, CEO of Youfone. "We are excited to be the first company to benefit from the combined offering from Amino and 24i which enables us to take our TV and video experiences to the next level."
"The expertise of the 24i and Amino teams combined with our joint technology solutions gives Youfone the competitive advantage of being able to adapt, grow and manage their TV and video services from one, dynamic platform," Donald McGarva, Amino Group Chief Executive Officer. "Today's announcement also marks a major milestone for the Amino and 24i teams as we celebrate our first joint customer deployment since the two companies came together earlier this year."
