Introducing the Formuler Z10 Pro Max Android TV box
This new Formuler Z10 Pro Max is powered by Realtek RTD1319 SoC with Mali-G31 MP2 GPU along with 4GB DDR4 RAM and 32GB eMMC memory. We are therefore in the presence of a more efficient and up-to-date solution than the Hisilicon Hi3798MV200/2 GB of RAM pair of the Z8 and Z8 Pro.
Android 10 is responsible for animating the device with what appears to be the same interface found on Formuler’s other recent Android boxes. This one, composed of thumbnails corresponding to the applications, is simple and pleasant to use.
The Formuler Z10 Pro Max supports the VP9-2, H.264 and H.265 codecs but also the open source and free AV1 codec which allows compression rates 40% higher than H.265 and therefore better image quality image at equivalent bit rate.
The HDR 10 and HLG formats are included, with a maximum output definition in 4K at 60 frames per second.
Unsurprisingly, the Netflix certification is absent from this device, the Microsoft PlayReady DRMs too, on the other hand, the Widevine Level 1 DRMs are present and will make it possible to obtain high definition or 4K quality on certain SVOD applications.
On the network part, nothing to complain about, we have Gigabit Ethernet allowing speeds up to 1000 mb/s and Wifi 5 (AC) 2×2 MIMO that can transmit data on 2 bands at the same time to increase speeds . Bluetooth 5 completes the package to allow you to connect remote controls, joysticks or headphones to the box.
Several possibilities are available to us to increase the storage space. The box offers the choice between a USB 3.0 port and a USB 2.0 port to connect a USB medium (hard drive, key, etc.) but also a micro SD card slot or even an Ethernet or Wi-Fi connection for network storage.
For the rest of the connections, we have power, HDMI and Infrared ports.
Of course, the MyTV Online 2 home IPTV application is automatically installed as for the brand’s other recent boxes, with, among other things, recording, live control and picture in picture mode to follow 2 different channels simultaneously. (if allowed by your IPTV playlist).
To be able to use the Android TV box and MOL2 in the best possible conditions, an IR remote control is supplied preconfigured with numerous shortcuts.
