Today new revelations about ZIDOO X9S, the new flagship TV Box from ZIDOO powered by Realtek RTD1295. How informed us ZIDOO team, ZIDOO X9S will support 3D playback. Most Android TV Boxes have more or less defects on 3D playback support, such as a wrong 3D type identifying,and false reading of TV set’s EDID information, The defects will result in non-3D picture on TV. Besides,the inconvenience operation in 3D menu of some products also annoyed users.
“Since the design of Zidoo X9S start, thinking about this prompted the programmers to wonder if they can find a way better than the older software architecture to achieve a perfect results.”
Let’s see how specity 3D playback in Zidoo X9S:
- 3D MVC MKV support. 3D MVC MKV support is the most special advantage,which few Android TV boxes in the market had developed. Programmers consulted a great deal of data, and done a lot of coding to identified a mkv file with MVC codec and to decode video-streaming and display them. Perfect for playback now. KODI forum provided very useful information.
- To Non-MVC 3D movie. ZIDOO call this outdated type of 3D movie as “pseudo 3D” usually.It have 2 sub type of Side-by-Side(also called LR) and Top-and-Bottom. It will be played as 2D mode as soon as starting,but you can simply switch to 3D mode as follow:
- To 3D MVC movies. It’s quite easy for X9S, once X9S identified the movie as a 3D MVC type,the moive will be played as 3D mode,without any manual operation. You can simply change to 2D mode if you want.
- Go around the fail of identify a 3D TV or a 2D TV. The TV set is a factor that we cannot control. The Android TV Box identify a TV set whether 3D or 2D through reading EDID signal from TV set. But there are always some not perfect TV sets in the market, they can’t provide a clear or a correct EDID signal. So that ,ZIDOO provide a manual operation menu to users, the users can force the box think the TV is a 3D TV set, because the users apparently know their own TV set is 3D or not. In a word,users will get a better and easier experience in Zidoo X9S. Probably ZIDOO X8 will also have this feature.
