Leader in the 4K Ultimate Evolution

When it comes to high-performance 4K streaming media players, the Z9X is the latest in Zidoo's lineup of cost-effective units. Adding to the formats that were present on the X9S and Z9S models, the Z9X features a new Android OS and the latest HDR processing technologies to offer a seamless entertainment experience.

4K UHD Image Quality

The Z9X image engine can easily decode 4K HDR images encoded with HEVC/H.265 standards. Supporting 3840 x 2160 60Hz output, each pixel appears natural, and images are clear and vivid even on a large screen.


Powerful Chipset

The Z9X is equipped with Realtek 1619 DR Hexa-core 64bit high-performance processor, which has a faster response speed and more efficient computing capability. Benefits also include strong decoding performance which supports accurate UHD decoding and excellent image quality output. This chipset boasts a 50% performance increase when compared to the previous generation model, the Zidoo Z9S. This means accessing your favourite entertainment is faster, and the Z9X is capable of running any application you throw at it.

 

Large Memory and Internal Storage

The large 2GB DDR4 memory equals fast and smooth navigation and playback. 16GB eMMC internal storage means you can install all your favourite streaming, gaming, and other apps, so everything you need for quality entertainment is only a keypress away.

 

WiFi and Bluetooth

The Z9X has a built-in 2.4G+5G dual-band 2R2T MIMO WIFI module with a wireless transmission rate of up to 867Mbps. With high-gain antennas. it avoids interference and is able to maintain a stable and high-speed connection even in a harsh network environment.

Equipped with Bluetooth BT 4.2 module, the Z9X enables you to connect wireless Bluetooth devices such as remote controls, keyboards, speakers, headphones, and more.

Chassis Material and Workmanship

The all-metal chassis of the Z9X is both easy on the eyes and functional. As well as looking good enough to sit alongside your other AV equipment, the alloy chassis of the Z9X aids in keeping the media player cool even in heavy use. The dark surface has a high-class feel, and the workmanship that has gone into the design and details is apparent.

Stunning HDR Technology

The new HDR processing engine can process HDR10 images more accurately. Colour contrast is more defined, meaning both highlights and shadows can be displayed better simultaneously. This technology results in images that display like a real scene.

Conversely, the Z9X supports HDR to SDR conversion, meaning you can display HDR movies very well on SDR screens via dynamic correction and colour reproduction.

Higher Level HDR10+

The Zidoo Z9X takes the lead in providing HDR10+ and Dolby Vision technology in a media player/streaming device. HDR10+ technology could not only display peak brightness up to 4000 nits, but also process metadata accurately for each frame. Namely, colours and brightness levels are obtained frame by frame and scene by scene, images could be displayed in details with wide dynamic contrast and richer colours.



Dolby Vision VS10 Technology

Z9X integrates Dolby Vision VS10 image engine, which supports Dolby Vision low latency (LLDV) output. Dolby Vision has adopted advanced dynamic metadata processing technology, so that the most suitable brightness could be output for images and scenes of each frame. Shadows are darker while highlights are brighter. Even in the dark and weak-light environment, it could also display the best visual effect.

Meanwhile, VS10 is a powerful engine, no matter what formats (Dolby Vision, HDR,HLG,SDR etc. ) or displaying devices, whether HDR outputting or SDR converting, all could keep colour accuracy and bring good experience to customers. Even normal TV could experience Dolby Vision technology.

 

 

12Bit Colour Depth

Z9X new image engine not only supports 10 Bit (approximately 1.07 billion colours) decoding and outputting at the resolution of 4K 60Hz, but also supports higher colour depth 12 bit (approximately 68 billion colours); 12 bit has vibrant colours and natural colour transition.

Wider Colour Range

Z9X supports BT.2020 wide colour range which could display 75% nature colours and closer to what human eyes could see, while traditional BT.709 could only display 35% nature colours. It has bright and eye-catching colours, rich and full images, and a better sense of space, three dimension and layering.

Accurate Frame Rate Switching

Z9X supports switching original resolution and frame rate automatically and accurately (23.976,59.94,25,30,50 and 60). The new automatic switching algorithm allows completing the film frame rate switching in advance to ensure smooth and integral film playback.


Android 9.0

Based on deep development of Android 9.0, the system performance of Z9X has greatly improved with better stability and compatibility. Masses of apps could be installed. DRM widevine L1 is also supported.
