Zidoo will be among the the first to release an Android TV box based on the new Realtek RTD1295 64-bit processor.
The Zidoo X9S and Zidoo X8 Android media players will run on an updated version of the company's updated Kodi 16 port called ZDMC. The new ZDMC uses OMX HW decoding for a better compatibility.
In addition to HEVC/VP9 4Kp60 video decoding, the RTD1295 series also incorporates a router function to extend Wi-Fi/Ethernet connections in order to provide better WiiFi coverage. As an extra feature, users will be able to input 4K videos from game consoles, set-top boxes or computers, and both the X9S or X8 media players will compress it to 1080P 30Hz.
Zidoo did not disclose pricing details for the new players.
