24i enables Amino to broaden and deepen its TV and online video solution portfolio to further its high-growth strategic evolution
Cambridge, UK, 15 July 2019 – Amino Communications, the global media and entertainment technology solutions provider, today announced that it has acquired the privately-held Amsterdam headquartered 24i, an industry leading provider of online video solutions and services.
“The fast-growing 24i is a great strategic acquisition for us, moving us closer to a decisive market leadership position. Not only does 24i’s leadership in UI/UX and TV/Online video Apps complement our product line-up, but 24i also shares our vision of where the industry is headed, and the agility and culture of innovation required to get it there profitably,” said Amino CEO Donald McGarva. “
Flexible and future-proof, 24i’s award-winning technology framework and portfolio of products and services power the video experiences of leading entertainment brands around the world, including NPO, iflix, KPN, PureFlix, RTE, NLZIET, Fox Sports, Globo and Sinclair Broadcasting Services. 24i provides the Amino Group with a broader and deeper product set, talented development capability, complementary skills and a greater geographical reach through offices in Amsterdam, Netherlands; Brno, Czech Republic; New York & Los Angeles, USA; Madrid, Spain and São Paulo, Brazil.
Martijn van Horssen, 24i Media’s CEO said: “In a rapidly changing industry, Amino and 24i are joining forces to innovate and create disruptive video experiences. With our combined technology stacks and highly professional and motivated teams, our post-acquisition mission remains exactly the same: to provide the solutions and services that innovate video experiences across all TV platforms on any device to enable Amino customers to deliver valuable consumer engagements.”
“The broadcast and online video market is undergoing rapid change, but not every media business is at the same place on the disruption curve taking the industry from broadcast and hardware to streaming and cloud hosted video platforms. It’s our strategic aim to provide solutions to media businesses and operators at many points along the curve. The acquisition of 24i and its products, services and people enable us to do this better, as we continue to enable exciting next generation video experiences and services,” concluded McGarva.
