ZTE launches 4K p60 Ultra HD STB
SHENZHEN, China --(Business Wire)--
ZTE (News - Alert) Corporation ("ZTE") (H share stock code: 0763.HK / A share stock
code: 000063.SZ), a publicly-listed global provider of
telecommunications equipment, network solutions and mobile devices, has
launched its 4K p60 Ultra HD set top box (STB), the ZXV10 B803, at
Mobile World Congress (News - Alert) 2014 in Barcelona.

The ZXV10 B803 is designed based on the Broadcom (News - Alert) BCM 7252 chip, and
supports the 4Kx2KP60 decoding capability, which can decode Ultra HD
video with the maximum resolution of 3840x2160. In comparison to
traditional HD Internet STBs, the 4K UHD STB can display more vivid and
precise images to significantly enhance the user experience.
4K video technology (also named as 2160p) is a new type of resolution
standard. Its UHDTV specification can deliver a resolution of 3840x2160
pixels, and the maximum Full Aperture 4K specification reaches
4096x3112. In comparison to the current mainstream 1080p resolution of
1920x1080, 4K can provide over four times the image definition quality.
In the future, 4K HD TV sets will be very popular, and the 4K HD and
HEVC decoding technologis will help raise the HD market tide. However,
in the current market, 4K chips are mainly 4KP30 - only a few chips can
support 4KP60. The ZTE ZXV10 B803 STB uses a 4KP60 chip, making it one
of the first HD STBs to support 4KP60.
Fang Hui, Deputy President of ZTE, said: "As a global leader in the IPTV (News - Alert)
market, ZTE offers a complete series of Internet STB products across the
range of available resolutions, and is focusing strongly on the
development of high-end STB products. This 4KP60 HD STB product will
help build our presence in the high end market."
The ZTE ZXV10 B803 also supports the H.265 format. H.265 is the next
generation super HD code transmission specification, which delivers
encoded video using half the bandwidth of the previous generation
(H.264), with the same quality. The H.265 standard will gradually
replace H.264 to become the mainstream standard of the next generation
of video transmission.
The ZTE ZXV10 B803 also has a powerful CPU with a processing capability
of 10k DMIPS (Dhrystone million instructions per second), enabling
faster processing and a better user experience in comparison to current
mainstream HD Internet STBs.
