Egreat Realtek RTD1195 and Rockchip Media Players, RK3188 Game Console

Posted by – October 12, 2014

Egreat STBs based on Realtek RTD1195 dual core Cortex A9 SoC with 4K, H.265 video decoding support. The video also features older Realtek and Rockchip Android TV Boxes, and an RK3188 based game console (Egreat K3).

Egreat will launch their A-series media players soon: A3 and A9 models. I contacted the company for some more details, but since the product is still in development, there are not willing to disclose complete details at this stage.

Here are the specs I could gather for Egreat A9:

SoC — Realtek RTD1195 dual core ARM Cortex A9 processor
System Memory — N/A
Storage — N/A. Possibly a SATA bay is also present (Unclear)
Video Output / Input — Composite, Component and HDMI output (MHL).
HDMI input Audio — HDMI, Stereo output (RCA), and S/PDIF
Video Playback — 3D blu-ray video playback + full video format support. H.265 decode support.
Audio Playback — 7.1 raw audio output “framepacking”.
Connectivity — Ethernet, WiFi with dual high-gain external antennas, and Bluetooth (TBC).
USB — 1x USB 3.0, 1x USB 2.0
Egreat A-series media player will run Android 4.4 Kitkat.Even though specs are incomplete at this stage, RTD1195 based products should be able to transfer data quickly and play high bitrate 4K videos smoothly thanks to high performance interfaces such as Gigabit Ethernet, USB 3.0 and SATA. CPU and GPU performance will however be greatly inferior to the new application processors from Amlogic S802, Rockchip RK3288, or AllWinner A80.

This post was adapted from Upcoming MeLe and Egreat A-Series 4K Android Media Players to Feature Realtek RTD1195 SoC (cnx-software.com).

Huawei Set-top-box User Interface Concept

Posted by – April 24, 2014

Huawei is working on making an innovation interface concept for set-top-boxes and Smart TV solutions. Huawei already has many set-top-boxes in the market with standard User Interface design but they are planning to integrate this new technology to beyond coming devices. Users may have the ability to switch different content for different ages and groups of people easily. This software interface is mainly targeted for set-top-box solutions but has similar design for mobile devices since it is generally based on android. You can stream content from the TV or Android Box to the smartphone or vice versa. The design concept is still in its first steps and is the main user interface for the set-top-box and its based in Android operating system but it can be done also over Linux-based or general web-based.

HiSilicon D01, 16-core ARM Cortex-A15 presented by Huawei

Posted by – March 15, 2014

Here’s the 16-core ARM Cortex-A15 processor from HiSilicon Huawei on a development board for ARM Powered Networking and Servers coming up. Hacked on in this video by Linaro Toolchain Engineer Rob Savoye (2), who now is climbing the Mount Everest. Linux kernel v3.13 is running on this board, with three SATA ports and two Gigabit ethernet ports driver ready. The BSP code will soon be upgraded to kernel v3.14 and be upstreamed in parallel. Source code and binaries are released through Linaro website. Ubuntu Server is verified on this board. In this demo, it runs a GCC toolchain native build. Linaro Toolchain Working Group plans to use this board to run multiple builds per board, to maximally saturate D01’s computing and storage capability.
