Pioneer Telephone Cooperative has selected a DVR set-top box from Amino for its IPTV service.
Headquartered in Kingfisher, Okla., Pioneer serves more than 40,000 customers across more than 74 communities in western Oklahoma. The co-op was at the forefront of IPTV deployments in North America.
Pioneer is using Amino’s Aminet A540 DVR IPTV/OTT set-top boxes that include new system-on-a-chip (SoC) processors and improved over-the-top features. The new OTT features include HTML5 audio and video tags to support the new generation of televisual websites, plus HTTP live streaming (HLS) adaptive streaming technology. HTTP upgrade and recovery is also included, enabling remote firmware updating.
“We have a great reputation for quality of service and innovation, and we look for partners that share this ethos and commitment,” said Pioneer manager of broadband services Donnie Miller. “Amino products have proved to be very reliable in our testing and trials and popular with our customers. Additionally, Amino has a strong working relationship with our middleware partner, and they have a shared goal in ensuring we maintain our competitive edge in delivering the best and latest entertainment experiences to our customers.”
