Q&A: Donald McGarva, chief executive officer, Amino

Has IBC come at a good time for the electronic media industry? Why?

There are some seismic shifts in pay-TV right now and we always look to IBC to see how everyone is responding and changing to operator and consumer needs. Multiscreen and 4K Ultra HD are re-shaping the landscape and IBC gives us a great opportunity to meet partners and customers to discuss the future shape of our industry.

What do you think are the key developments in, or threats to, your market sector at the current time?

There are three key developments: the shift to IP for pay-TV delivery across the industry; cloud TV and its key role in multiscreen TV experiences; and the accelerating demand for 4K Ultra HD. All three trends are radically re-shaping how IP device developers like Amino are responding and developing new solutions to meet changing consumer demands and operator needs.

Why should delegates visit your stand at IBC?

We’re showing a new range of IPTV and hybrid devices – alongside our new cloud TV platform – for the delivery of 4K Ultra HD entertainment to any screen inside or outside the home. It’s a great opportunity for people to see how we’ve evolved since last year – and the benefits our recent acquisitions of Entone and Booxmedia bring to our offering.
