Amino and Innovative Systems Complete Android TV Integration to Offer Managed Video Solution Ideal for Independent Service Providers

Amigo 7X Set-top Enhanced by Amino Engage and InnoStream TV Platform Provides Access to Linear and Streaming Channels, and Offers Significant OPEX Savings

NCTC–The Independent Show, Orlando, Fla., July 25, 2022 – Amino, the global media and entertainment technology solutions provider, and Innovative Systems today announced the availability of their integrated Android TV managed service offering to bring a wider variety of content to a diverse population of subscribers. This powerful technology combination provides a carrier-grade system with a modern user experience for linear and streaming content, while supporting legacy Pay TV infrastructures, giving independent service providers a cost-efficient, competitive edge.

The Amigo 7X features Amino Engage, a SaaS management solution that efficiently manages and proactively supports all Android TV devices and apps to improve quality of service and experience. When integrated with Innovative’s Innostream MG-TV IPTV and OTT solutions, the managed service is a complete solution with everything required for an integrated OTT and Pay TV service that is easy for operators to deploy, support, and offer the advantages of Android TV.

“The demand for a managed video service has never been stronger, particularly in the North American market. Being able to offer a robust TV-as-a-service for Android TV is filling a major gap for independent operators and their subscribers,” said Donald McGarva, Amino Group CEO. “We have already seen considerable adoption of our Android TV solutions and this integration with our long-time partner Innovative Systems will further expand our reach.”

The InnoStream integration includes the latest Engage Service Management capabilities that are especially beneficial to independent operators, such as managing firmware/software updates and streamlining customer support with innovative features like the virtual remote control. Furthermore, Amino’s established device distribution network, particularly in North America, provides a reliable supply chain that guarantees customers have products when they require them.  Innovative Systems is the most deployed middleware of small and mid-size video operators in North America because, according to their customers, “It just works.”

“We are fortunate to bring this managed Android TV solution to our customer base with Amino as it meets their needs on several levels,” said Scott Sobolewski,VP of Sales at Innovative Systems. “It attracts and retains subscribers because the user interface feels familiar and easy to use. Having a managed device in the home reduces the operational expenses for the operator and provides exceptional customer service. This is clearly a win-win partnership.”

Innovative Systems (booth #416) and Amino (booth #232) will be highlighting the integrated solution at the NCTC’s Independent Show in Orlando July 24-27.
