Amino adds Firefox Browser to IPTV offering

Leading open-source Internet browser to remove UI license fees from IPTV deployments

Cambridge, UK, 3 March 2006: Amino, leading IPTV set-top box supplier, today announced that it will integrate the Firefox browser into its award-winning range of IPTV set-top boxes. Firefox, recently reported to be approaching a 13% share of the Internet browser market on PCs, will be ported to Amino’s software stack and adapted to provide consumers with a clear television interface, wholly different from the web-user experience of the current software. It will also give Amino the ability to customise and optimise the browser for IPTV viewing. The Firefox browser will be available to Amino customers in Q3 2006.

Paul Fellows, CTO Amino, commented, "Amino has always been at the forefront of technological innovation in the IPTV sector and has used its engineering expertise to provide the most flexible and cost-effective product offering on the market." He continued, "While Amino continues to support the leading IPTV user interface software from other suppliers, the Firefox browser will offer our customers a means of providing essential IPTV navigation at zero cost."

The Firefox web browser is an award-winning open-source product developed by the Mozilla Foundation, a not-for-profit organisation devoted to promoting choice and innovation on the Internet. Engineers and partner companies from around the world assisted in the development of Firefox through bug reporting, fixing and feedback.

"The company’s approach to IPTV design and engineering mirrors the use of the Linux operating system and our commitment to open source software in general," Fellows noted. "This additional IPTV browser option should achieve the same goals we are striving for in the Internet space; choice and flexibility for customers, in this case the IPTV service providers"
