Rockchip shows H.265 and WebM VP9 video decoding on RK3188

Posted by Charbax – July 18, 2013

Rockchip shows the world's first H.265 and VP9 advanced video playback on their Rockchip RK3188 processor. Right now Rockchip is doing this software based decoding, with potential support for hardware based decoding coming later. This shows how the Rockchip RK3188 Quad-core ARM Cortex-A9 is fast enough to do such advanced software based video decoding. In the future, even Rockchip's single-core and dual-core will support H.265 and VP9 codec, the goal is to have 1080p software based playback on RK3188 and 720p support on the Rockchip's dual and single-core. The H.265 and VP9 support is added with a patch with no need to do a full firmware flash upgrade. The new H.265 HEVC and the WebM VP9 codecs can potentially save something like half the bitrate and file size at the same video quality.

$45 Dual-SIM 7″ MediaTek MT6515 Tablet with hot-swappable batteries

Posted by Charbax – July 17, 2013

Check out this 7" dual-sim-GPRS MT6515 dual-core ARM Cortex-A7 based tablet with hot-swappable batteries that I found on the market in Shenzhen. I think you can get IPS for $10 more and 3G-capable dual-sim MT6577 for $10-$20 more. I like the hot-swappable batteries.

Pipo tablet company history

Posted by Charbax – June 8, 2013

Pipo CEO Ben Lai talks about Pipo's company history, going back to their flash memory based Mp3 players in 2003, then moving to making Mp4 players, working with Rockchip since 2006, thus talking about Rockchip's history, making a 1.8" Mp4 color display PMP in 2006, then moving on in 2007 or 2008 to more advanced Mp4 players (so called by Chinese companies as Mp5 players) (that could play all video codecs without re-encoding the videos), Allwinner is the ARM spin-off of Actions MIPS, then Actions recently move back to ARM also. Everyone makes ARM processors now except Realtek (which is a huge trouble for Realtek). Then Pipo moved forward to make GPS, game players, picture frames, Mp4 boom boxes, separating functions of the ARM Powered devices around 2010, Pipo produced one of the Archos LCD based e-readers, then released initial resistive tablets in 2010, and since 2012 the Pipo brand has been launched with focus on high-end quality differentiation for the Chinese Tablet market.

Pipo M9, 10.1″ 1280×800 IPS RK3188

Posted by Charbax – June 6, 2013

Pipo's yet most popular RK3188 tablet, this is their 10.1" 1280x800 IPS RK3188 tablet. They sell more than Rockchip can yet provide of the RK3188 processor, the demand being so huge for this product. This is perhaps one of the first RK3188 devices that was introduced on the market, it's also perhaps one of the first RK3188 devices with Android 4.2 pre-loaded.
