Panama’s CTV Telecom has selected the Amino AmiNET125 multi-codec set-top box (STB) for Central America’s first IPTV service, the company said last week.
The AmiNET125 platform is specifically designed to help operators in emerging markets introduce IPTV services. It also can be used in European and North American markets for standard-definition TV sets.
CTV has installed a purpose-built high-speed fiber-optic network in Panama City to deliver the new IPTV service. It offers subscribers pure IPTV services, including phone, broadband Internet and TV, with more than 100 broadcast, music and on-demand channels.
The AmiNET125 combines the best features from Amino's previous standard-definition products but adds USB 2.0 and a programmable multi-codec DSP capable of MPEG-2, H.264 and WMV9.
