ZTE made the announcement at the Broadband World Forum (BBWF) 2015 in London.
The ZXV10 B860AV2 will replace the ZXV10 B860A launched last year. ZTE launched the first 4K/UHD STB B803 at Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2014 in Barcelona. ZTE delivered more than one million B860A units until October, 2015. According to the Global IPTV Report 2014 by research firm MRG, ZTE is the number one global provider of IPTV STBs.
The ZTE V2 is available in black or white and features a compact design (110mm×110mm×32.5mm). It adopts a 64-bit system architecture with a Quad-core CPU. The V2 utilizes hardware decoding of the H.265 (HEVC) video codec, which has the potential to save up to 50 percent more bandwidth than the H.264. The H.265 can deliver a better quality of encoding.
V2 leverages the latest Android 5.1 system and integrates ZTE’s Smart Home 2.0 platform, including 3D games, web browsing, 1080p video communication, and second-screen remote control. The V2 can support advanced security and super security, and the V2 can be customized to support these DRM (Verimatrix, Playready).
The V2 adopts 2.4/5G dual Wi-Fi to reduce frequency interference in the 5G band and improve audio and video quality as a result.
