Amino Acquires Tilgin Set-top Box Business

Amino has acquire Tilgin's IPTV set-top box business. Tilgin has sold about 500,000 set-top boxes. Amino will acquire new features as part of this deal that include picture in picture, whole home connectivity, and green power.

Tilgin will now focus is on IP Residential Gateways. Tilgin said that it has a strong market position and leading gateway products. Tilgin's IPTV business has not reached the volumes required for sustained profitability. Amino and Tilgin intends to commence a sales cooperation regarding IP Residential Gateways.

There are fewer major new opportunities in Telco IPTV now. We will see more companies that have not reached critical mass following the divestiture or acquisition route.
