A high-end, 12000-DMIPS processor, OpenGL 3.1 and DDR4 memory give the platform power into the future and a modular frontend allows complex hybrid connections or even mid-term upgrade flexibility.

High Quality

High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC or H.265) is the next-generation of video codec, offering up to 50% bandwidth savings on the H.264 standard. HEVC can be used by operators to deliver a superior quality-of-experience within the same bandwidth or to increase their existing capacity by re-encoding existing assets.

UHD (or 4K) gives four times the resolution of full HD and improves colour reproduction for picture even closer to reality, all at the frame rates that allow fast-moving action with reduced blurring.

High Connectivity

The MC6505 is a highly-connected unit with integrated IEEE 802.11ac dual-band wireless and gigabit Ethernet. USB 3.0 allows the connection of external peripherals and Bluetooth Low Energy allows an optional advanced remote control unit and features such as voice search to be supported.
