Media player specialist Zappiti has launched three 4K HDR compatible new models: the Zappiti Mini 4K HDR compact set-top box (249€, pictured above), the Zappiti One 4K HDR (299€), with a hot swap internal SATA HDD 3.5-inch rack, and the Zappiti Duo 4K HDR (399€), with dual hot swap internal SATA rack (pictured below).

The fan-free players support “almost all video and audio formats, codecs and file containers”, including HEVC, VP9, ISO Blu-ray, M2TS, MKV 4K, MVC 3D and high-resolution lossless audio up to 32-bit /192 kHz. Connectivity includes HDMI 2.0 with Ultra HD 4K60p and REC2020 colour space compliance.

“Today’s consumers expect a high-quality viewing experience on the new Ultra HD Premium televisions. The challenge for service providers is finding a media player capable of delivering this type of experience, affordably,” says Pete Baker, Global Representative of Zappiti. “Our new Zappiti 4K HDR series offer robust performance with impressive, crisp, and crystal-clear picture quality; delivering 4 times the resolution of Full HD and High Dynamic Range, without any noise! By offering the integrated Zappiti Media Center app, the Zappiti 4K HDR series elevates the Movie and TV Show viewing experience to a whole, new level.”

Using Zappiti Share, it’s possible for video files stored on the internal, or external, hard drive with other Zappiti media players. Up to four files at the same time, can be played back in different rooms. Zappiti Sync ensures movie collections are automatically synchronised with other Zappiti players (for multiroom use), as well as PCs.

Zappiti will present the three players at ISE 2017, which runs February 7-10 at the Amsterdam RAI.

Zappiti media players are available through Invision UK. For more news stories about Invision's product portfolio, visit our partner page here.
