The Amino H140 is the next generation high definition, high performance set-top box for Guest Room IPTV applications. With HD services becoming an in-room requirement in many guest rooms worldwide, the A140 allows hospitality solution providers to specify a high performing HD STB, based on the latest generation STi7105 System on Chip (SoC), but at a cost effective price point, whilst still providing all the features required for such applications.
The world of IPTV has rapidly evolved in its relatively short history - from MPEG-2 to MPEG-4, SD to HD - and a host of other standards and features to support the delivery of TV services over managed broadband networks. With HD services becoming an in-room requirement in many guest rooms worldwide, the H140 allows hospitality solution providers to specify a high performing HD STB, based on the latest generation STi7105 system-on-chip (SoC), but at a cost effective price point, whilst still providing all the features required for such applications.
The H140 is an ideal component of a digital guest room entertainment solution. Fully digital systems provide numerous benefits for the operator, including:
Easy update of content via remote download -no more tapes or CDs to track and ship.
Remote management of the system -fewer on-site service calls.
Ability to integrate with other guest services - telephony, Internet, billing, information.
The H140 provides CEC control over HDMI. This feature allows system integrators to provide an integrated solution with TVs that also support CEC, with features such as IR pass-through, power on and off of the TV and STB, plus sending and receiving other CEC supported, or custom control commands, between TV and STB.
Hospitality system integrators require access to the STB to integrate bespoke applications for many installations. The H140 is equipped with a RS-232 serial interface that can be used as a connection interface to hospitality televisions for single remote control use, if CEC is not being used and many other applications.
Extensive ecocosystem support
The H140 is supported by an extensive ecosystem of middleware, browser, conditional access and DRM options required for the widely varying configurations of the IPTV market.
