Antena 3 relies on Amino set-top box

Amino and Antena 3 have announced the first delivery of a live national TV channel over an IP satellite data link in Spain.

Using Amino’s AmiNET125 IPTV STB, La Fundación Antena 3, a non-profit charity supported by Grupo Antena 3, is broadcasting a new free-to-view channel called FAN3 in hospitals.

La Fundación Antena 3 enables hospitals to receive the programs from FAN3 via the Hispasat Satellite. The channel is received over a 2Mb/s one-way satellite link before being decoded with the AmiNET125. The feed is then modulated to an available channel number and made available to all TVs in the hospital.

In addition to the AmiNET125 STBs, German-based DICAS supplied the encoders and Vidactive supplied its Multicast server tailored to hospitals.
