The AmiNET125i is a flexible device allowing consumers to browse and
access video content from the Internet on their television.

official 'on stand' launch event. It will feature content from
Narrowstep (web portal using 'mobile format') streamed from a video
server on an AmiNET125i STB with Windows Media 9 / Internet browser.
The concept shows how an advanced, elegantly designed, multi-codec
STB can be used to make the transition from an IPTV environment to
Internet TV. Amino will be showing how this solution can transform
the way partners deliver their services and enhance their business.
AmiNET125: fully featured SD multi-codec IPTV STB

devices supporting SD video streams. The AmiNET125 offers operators

user (ARPU) through the provision of support for future services and
a low-cost, powerful hardware blueprint.
