Zx4517 UHD Set-Tops

DVB, HEVC, Ultra-HD, Quad-Core Set-Tops with Wave 2 802.11ac 4x4 Wi-Fi

ARRIS presents a range of stylish, high-quality UHD (4K) set-tops in a small form factor, with models for cable, satellite, terrestrial and OTT operators. The Zx4517 is an Android TV compliant DVB platform which uses the latest technologies to reduce power consumption and increase processing capabilities.

Enhanced Whole Home Connectivity - the Zx4517 is a highly-connected unit with integrated 4x4 IEEE 802.11ac dual band Wi-Fi. This delivers exceptional performance even in challenging environments through next generation technologies such as MU-MIMO and beamforming. USB 2.0 allows the connection of additional storage devices for functions such as time-shift TV. The Bluetooth Low Energy remote control option supports voice search and allows for hidden installation.

High Quality Video Experience - Ultra-HD, 10-bit colour and High Dynamic Range deliver four times the resolution of full HD, improved colour reproduction and a wider luminance range for an image that’s even closer to reality, all at frame rates that allow fast-moving action with reduced blurring. The Zx4517 includes HDR<>SDR conversion for video and graphics, allowing the seamless use of legacy UIs on HDR displays, and the viewing of HDR content on conventional displays without the need for simulcasting.

Enables a wide choice of User Experience – a high-performance processor, 3D OpenGL and fast LPDDR4 memory give the platform the power to support a wide range of middlewares including Android TV to deliver a modern user experience.
