Mele Founders talk Mele Company History (making the Aigo hard drive based PMPs, Sigma Designs, Realtek and now ARM Android Set-top-boxes)

Posted by – April 30, 2013

Here’s an interview with Nico Zhao (President) and Brian Xia (CEO), the co-founders of Shenzhen MELE Digital Technology Ltd. They talk about how they started Mele making ARM7 and embedded Linux in hard drive based portable media players for the Aigo brand in 2004, after 2006/2007, Mele enabled the Realtek MIPS based Set-top-box market by adopting that Realtek processor for the multimedia player box (switching from Sigma Designs) and then how they’ve shifted to using ARM processors in the last year or two to run Android on their latest series of TV Set-top-boxes and bringing a whole range of new features with that.

Mele Skype TV Video Chat Camera

Posted by – April 19, 2013

Mele shows some of their Skype Video-conferencing Camera modules that work with their latest Allwinner A20, A31 based set-top-boxes, with either built-in camera connected on the set-top-box, or with a cable on the top of the TV, or a design for the Set-top-box actually built in to the larger camera to mount on the top of the TV. I am not sure about the status and possibility of doing 720p or even 1080p Video-conferencing on Skype on Android Set-top-boxes, I guess that support is up to the Skype Android app (which Microsoft controls), but I guess there are other Android Video-conferencing apps that support 720p and 1080p video-conferencing already and which should work with this system. HD video-conferencing is awesome, and this may be a way to have that work for around $150 retail price on each side.

XBMC, RF remote, display settings on the Hiapad Hi-802 i.MX6 Quad HDMI Stick

Posted by – October 19, 2012

A Quad-core ARM Cortex-A9 in an HDMI stick like the Hi-802 is high performance stuff! The trick is to try to demonstrate how to get use of that extra power. Here we try to show off some XBMC (even though it seems or we guess video codecs in xbmc aren’t hardware accelerated on i.MX6 yet), we show the cool Mele RF remote (that can be bought as an option eventually), we show some of the advanced display settings and more. This device is to be available for $89 including worldwide Hong Kong Air Post (5-10 day) shipping on the ARMdevice.net Members Store when this device becomes available by the end of the month.
