    Two multimedia 4K chip foundation big video

    Around the home video 'everywhere' target, ZTE Microelectronics is constantly adding multimedia chip market.

    During the recent China Mobile Partners Conference, ZTE Microelectronics focused on the latest achievements of the terminal chip, especially the latest multimedia can be widely used in set-top boxes, cloud terminals, video conferencing systems, home media centers and other scenes of multimedia 4K Series chip, ZX296719 and ZX296716, took an important step in ZTE's microelectronics cloud-tube-end industry layout.

    Huang Zhizhi, ZTE Microelectronics in multimedia chip research and development has been invested for many years, this year's new launch of these two chips ZX296719 and ZX296716 are a successful film, and the rapid mass production.

    As an important entrance to the home video business, the set-top box in the chip computing power, image processing capabilities and stability requirements are growing with the development of video services, 4K is becoming an indispensable ability. Therefore, ZTE Microelectronics for 4K content required by the key capabilities, one by one to crack, to ZX296719 and ZX296716 two chips launched officially broke the board.

    Among them, ZX296716 for the set-top box products, home karaoke OK, home video conferencing, home media center and other scenes of a new generation of cost-effective multimedia chip products. Reporters learned that, for television and other large-screen applications, ZTE Microelectronics in the image super zoom, color brightness, noise suppression and other technical research from a variety of algorithms, and ZX296716 focus on the presentation, to make the image more perfect. ZX296716 not only supports HDR10 and HLG HDR image display, support BT2020 color gamut and Dolby Plus audio decoding, support 4KP60 10bit full 4K image output, more support 1080P60 video encoding.

    ZX296719 uses the 2A72 + 4A53 size core architecture, which can provide high-performance products for the latest generation of MALI GPUs on the market. The ZX296719 is a high-performance, easy-to-use, Floating-point operations and high-performance graphics processing capabilities to support a rich audio and video interface, while providing 4KP60 H.265 video decoding capabilities.

    In 2016, the three operators of the 4K business in Guangzhou, Shanghai, Sichuan, Anhui, Heilongjiang, Chongqing and other provinces and cities continue to land, 4K video era of the curtain has been fully opened, the amount of multimedia chips will usher in a new outbreak.ZTE Microelectronics as a subsidiary of ZTE, its multimedia chip independent research and development and production capacity, no doubt means that ZTE in the 4K large video solutions to provide more initiative. In the face of the domestic IPTV set-top box market in the past three years was blowout growth, high frame rate, HDR, 10bit pixel sampling, BT2020 wide color gamut, surround sound audio decoding and other comprehensive video experience based on the whole 4k concept, Electronics will also follow the tide of the market layout, in the big video business to seize the initiative.

            Thanks to Gearbest we can have a close look today
            at the Z66X Z2 TV Box - ZX296716 Quad-core Android 2/16GB ROM 7.1 2.4G WiFi 100M RJ45

            Another Light weight performing CPU, by the looks and we have 720 UI view tho seems snappy enough

            The UI/Desktop is a little ATV look, like the New Zui found by Zidoo.
            Another to compete with the 905W I feel at present.

            We have Root, upper and lower task/notification.
            No DRM at this stage.

            Easy setup with Google and account normal Google
            Apps installed as required no funny business looking OK.
            Temps running around 50~60c
            WiFi and Ether net well ok for 10/100 and 2.4GHZ only



            Let's do some test first as I was keen to see what this was all about and had to offer.
            First impression for what it is and price, cheap and cheery I guess

                  Let's have a look see inside etc.. at the
                  Z66X Z2 TV Box - ZX296716 Quad-core Android 2/16GB ROM 7.1 2.4G WiFi 100M RJ45

                  The Box


                  Whats in the Box

                  Ports


                  Remove the Base

                  Closer

                  More Screws removed

                  Closer

                  WiFi Chip


                  Its, OK for what it has to offer, maybe a few tweaks as time goes by might be an interesting device
                  Will have to wait and see...

                  But a cheapy for that second TV etc should do the Job.

                    It is dark, or it works at 720p or frame drops?

                    Can you tell me what is the purpose of this aluminum element screwed to plastic cover? I have (had, to be honest) similar in MXQ Pro 4K S905 and removed it. Why it is placed there?

                      YT show us the Max Res I can set to is 720 first Image.
                      The second Image is showing the Stream of a 4k Video also locked at 720

                      The block can have 2 functions to add a Bit more weight to the Unit, This being alloy most likely not.
                      Second, with the help of thermal pad as you see can pull heat away form CPU/Heat sink.

                        It seems that it's a Nexbox product based on A95XZ2 marking on the PCB & A95MINI on the wifi antenna.

                          But... don't you use 720p screen?




                          Regading the metal element - i think it adds a little weight only. In my Amlogic S905 box - it doesn't even touch the SoC.
