ZTE recently launched two new products – a 4K Media Gateway STB (set-top box) and a DVB (digital video broadcasting) STB for Android TV devices – that revolutionize how we access and enjoy media in residential and business settings. ZTE collaborated with Amlogic, developing a chipset to create a high-performance system.

ZTE designed the product for users who want the ultimate entertainment experience, including superior graphics and fast streaming rates, and is ideal for film and TV enthusiasts and serious gamers.
The STB utilizes a chipset inspired by Amlogic’s quad-core ARM Cortex-A55 architecture and features a 64-bit CPU and a 3+2-core GPU. It works with Android TV systems. It allows users to connect to various apps and media to enhance their home entertainment experience. Users can enjoy their favorite films and series in 4K UHD HDR with AV1 decoding and stream rates. The core can also handle live-action sports and video game refresh rates.
This ZTE set top box also features Wi-Fi 6 compatibility and 2.4G/5G Hz dual-band Wi-Fi speeds. Wi-Fi 6 was developed with the connected household in mind. Users no longer have one or two internet-connected computers in their homes. Instead, they have appliances, devices, televisions and more, all pulling from the home’s Wi-Fi. Wi-Fi 6 can handle all of your connected devices while still delivering the speeds you need for everything to run smoothly. The STB also features a WAN uplink and five built-in antennas. EasyMesh technology further enhances your Wi-Fi experience. You no longer have to worry about dead zones within your house and can even access the internet from your yard.
ZTE’s STB is compatible with Chromecast and OK Google. With a built-in Chromecast, you’ll have no trouble streaming media directly to your TV from your phone. The included smart remote comes equipped with OK Google. With this voice assistant, you can find media and apps and get recommendations based on your preferences. You can even control other smart devices straight from the remote.
Advancements in the DVB STB with Far-Field Voice
ZTE’s DVB STB with Far-Field Voice is an innovative combination of a smart speaker and set top box that enhances your streaming experience along with allowing you to control other smart devices throughout your home. ZTE also worked with Amlogic for this product, using the brand’s SoC (system on chip) technology. It is designed to work with Android TV devices.
The product features far-field voice technology, limiting the need for a remote. The technology features a dual-mic system, which isolates your voice commands from other noise in the home and can hear you at distances of up to five meters.
