Today we have a new TV Box for you, and rather TV Box with new and other SoC than the previous one. New Android TV Box called Alfawise H96 Mini powered by Amlogic T962E. The manufacturer responsible for the Alfawise brand has a large portfolio in which the new H96 Mini TV Box is now available. On the Amlogic website, we did not find the T962E SoC, it is only the Amlogic T962 (probably the same SoC). Another interesting fact is that the SoC is dedicated to Smart TV and can be found in the Xiaomi Smart TV called Xiaomi Mi TV 4a.
The T962 SoC support UHD 4K 60fps HW decoding, supports multiple formats including H.265 10-bit, H.264 and AVS+, HDR10 and HLG HDR processing, FHD 1080p 30fps HW encoding, supports H.264. Amlogic T962 (E) is not the only interesting feature in the new Alfawise H96 Mini. The H96 Mini also features Dual HDMI (HDMI Out and HDMI IN) with 4K 60Hz support. This functionality was seen in ZIDOO X9S, ZIDOO X10, Beelink SEA I, PROBOX2 AVA etc. You can connect via HDMI IN signal from the Digital TV tuner, and use the PiP (Picture in Picture), record the signal from the HDMI IN and stream it to devices on your network.
