The iStreamer X96 firmware is updated via OTA. Automatically via the internet!
Nearly every android tv box has a standard IR remote control. This is very concise and you can not maximize the capabilities of android through this "simple" remote control. Therefore, we recommend using a fly mouse and keyboard. As a flymouse we recommend the Rii I7 . As a Flymouse / Keyboard we recommend the Mele F10 Deluxe and MX3 . Would you prefer a touchpad. Then we recommend the Rii K12 or Rii I8 .
The Amlogic s905X consists of a 64-bity Quad Core Cortex-A53. This 4-core system on a chip (Soc) can be clocked up to 2.0GHz. The Amlogic s905X has almost as many qualities as the more expensive SoCs available on the market, but for a smaller price. The Video Card / GPU / Video Processor used is a Penta Core (5 cores) Mali-450MP. This Mali GPU runs at a maximum speed of 750Mhz. This video chip is very suitable for playing high quality videos. H.265 & VP9 videos are really no problem.
Difference between the Amlogic S905 Soc and Amlogic S905X Soc
The working memory / RAM memory of the X96 is 1GB RAM. That's ample enough to be able to stream successfully and use multiple aplications at once. If you want to play heavier games with the box, we recommend a device with a heavier soc / cpu like the Amlogic S912 or the Rockchip RK3288.
The storage has the X96 is 8GB eMMC and that's enough to save some apps and or some videos. Still need more storage? Then you can use a sd card, usb stick or extrene hdd.
The X96 has a maximum 4K video output at 60 frames p / sec and uses HDMI 2.0. The data transfer is up to 18GB per second with 10-bit color video.
The hdmi cec function makes it easier to connect devices and communicate with each other. This is done by a special / separate signal that purely serves for communication via the HDMI cable. HDMI-CEC is supported by all HDMI cables.
The iStreamer X96 supports H.265 and VP9 video decoding.
H.265 : You can enjoy high quality videos while taking only half of the usual bandwidth. Streaming is therefore much quicker and smoother while quality is getting better.
VP9 : The purpose for VP9 and HEVC is the same. It is the compression of large video files without (too much) loss of quality.
Youtube & VP9:
Currently, YouTube videos use the VP8 standard. This was developed by the company On2 Technologies, which has now been surrendered by Google. So it's no surprise that Youtube will soon switch to VP9 standard.
According to YouTube, the quality of videos with VP9 is maintained but the bit rate is halved.
This X96 is ideal for streaming series, movies and more media via Kodi / XBMC. You can even stream live tv. Kodi has now become the standard for streaming media.
Of course, the X96 has the operating system / OS Android . Android 6.0 Marshmallow has been greatly improved in several areas that will make it even more smooth. Android is very clear and playing a little bit makes sure that you're already pretty wise if you do not have an Android OS experience yet.
With Android OS you have 1.4 Million apps. So there is something for every application. For the beginner but of course the advanced user.
