CAMBRIDGE, UK - Pennsylvania-based fiber optic network provider Salsgiver will trial Amino’s Freedom Jump OTT set-top box as part of a premium service offering to its customers.

Under the gotlit.com brand, Salsgiver has rolled out a competitive fiber network northeast of Pittsburgh on which it offers high-quality broadband and phone services. It is also deploying an additional 300 miles of fiber in nearby Armstrong and Indiana Counties. Now the company is market-testing OTT-based entertainment services that use Amino’s “companion” device to deliver movie-on-demand services, catch-up TV, Internet music services, applications and social networking.

Amino’s North American Director of Sales Telco Accounts, Dan Carufel, says, “Ambitious fiber optic network operators like Salsgiver see OTT-based service delivery as a natural enhancement to their offerings. The Freedom Jump provides a powerful yet cost-effective solution with a simple 'HDMI in, HDMI out' installation enabling operators to position the device as value-added service without the need of expensive truck roll.”

Salsgiver CEO Loren Salsgiver adds, “Our fiber optic network rollout is being very well received by customers who are delighted by the added value high-speed access can deliver. The opportunity to deliver additional entertainment services – via OTT – is compelling, and we’re encouraged by the response from customers.”
