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.
Measy makes a Amlogic M802 based Android set top box with a Windows 8 like interface capable of outputting 4k called the B4A. The B4A sells for 70 USD for 1,000 pieces. Measy also makes accessories such as a bluetooth security device, a wireless touch keyboard, and a mhl adapter. Allwinner makes an HDMI stick with an Allwinner A31s processor and a hdmi stick with miracast functionality.
