Wise Tivi Announces Three Android 4.2 Media Players based on Rockchip RK3066 Starting at $59.99

Wise Tivi is a new company that recently launched 3 Android 4.2 (Jelly Bean) products based on what appears to be Rockchip RK3066 processor:

  • Wise Tivi Camera ($89.99) – A set-top box with a front camera that can be conveniently placed on top of the TV.
  • Wise Tivi Portable ($79.99) – The mini PC / PC-on-an-HDMI-stick version.
  • Wise Tivi Box ($59.99) – A standard Android set-top box with IR remote control.

According to the company website, all 3 devices share the following specifications:

Wise Tivi Portable
  • SoC – Dual Core ARM Cortex A9 1.6Ghz with Quad-core ARM Mali-400 MP (Rockchip RK3066)
  • System Memory – 1GB DDR3 RAM
  • Storage – 4 GB Nand Flash (up to 16GB) and microSD card slot
  • Connectivity – WiFi 802.11 b/g/n
  • Video Output – HDMI 1.3 (up to 1920×1080 resolution),
  • USB –  1 x micro USB OTG, 1x SB 2.0 HOST and 1x micro USB for power.
  • Video –  RM/RMVB, MPEG, MKV, AVI, MP4,MOV,FLV, H.263, H.264,VC-1,DivX, Xvid, TS,RealVideo,VP6,VP8. Support Multi-format 1080P video decoding, stereoscopic 3D H.264 MVC video coding
  • Audio – MP3/WMA/APE/FLAC/AAC/OGG/AC3/WAV…
  • Power Supply – 100~220V AC Input, 5V DC Output 2A

That is until you start to look at the pictures / renderings… So the camera version appears to have a full SD card slot, one USB host port and an HDMI output (but there’s no info about the camera), the mini PC matches the specifications above, and the Wise Tivi Box comes with HDMI & composite output, Audio RCA stereo output, Ethernet, 2x USB host ports and a full size SD card slot.

Considering you can get a device with the same specs for $50 to $60, I don’t find Wise Tivi Portable particularly interesting at $79.99, although the anodized aluminum case makes it look nicer than most other mini PCs.

The Wise Tivi Camera on the other hand is an interesting innovative product, and could be of use for people watching to do video-conferencing / use Skype regularly with their HDTV. Wise Tivi Box is the only regular set-top box featuring Rockchip RK3066 I’ve ever seen. Ethernet connectivity will allow you to play high bitrate videos (>10 Mbps) and at $59 this is much cheaper than equivalent AMLogic media players.

The company will also provide an Air Mouse and a Game PAD (but only go to those 2 products pages if you are interesting in UFOs…) , which would make it an alternative to the OUYA (excluding OUYA game marketplace).

The company has just started accepting pre-orders for the 3 media players. Prices include free shipping, but I could not find estimated delivery date, and since all they have on their website are renderings, this could be a few months away. You can find more information (including the UFO part) on Wise Tivi webpage.

cnxsoft :
I’m a little confused as to why there’s a $20 difference between the STB and the mini PC.

One reason maybe because the STB case is open mould (I saw this box before so I think this…) and the Mini PC maybe is private and aluminum. If they make a short production can be 3000-4000USD more.

Of course must be more reasons, not just this…

[…] WISE TIVI turns your TV into an Android-powered video conferencing unit There are many solutions for turning your so called idiot box into a SmartTV. However, very rarely do we see a way to turn the TV into a video conferencing solution. WISE aims to make this possible with the power of Android, thanks to its WISE TIVI. Three different versions of the device will be available: $90 WISE TIVI Camera$80 WISE TIVI Portable$60 WISE TIVI Box The camera version of this device sits on the top of your TV and connects into an available HDMI port. With the power of a full-fledged Android operating system, you can use pretty much any video conferencing solution that is available on Android. You could even use this with a TV to host Google+ Hangouts if you want to. Because this is a SmartTV device and not just a camera for your TV, there is also a WISE TIVI portable version that is similar to the other SmartTV-on-a-stick systema we have seen such as the Favi SmartStick and the Roku Streaming Stick. The TIVI Box is a heavier version similar to an Apple TV, Roku, or Boxee. All three models include the same hardware. 1.6GHz dual core processors, ARM Graphics, 1GB of RAM, and between 4GB and 16GB of storage, very capable for running Android. There is also a WISE Sync app, allowing you to grab content from other devices and stream them to your WISE TV. If you are looking for a Android based SmartTV solution, this is another great one! Indeed, this is Android transforming our lives, right from being inside our pockets to now inside our bedrooms. SOURCES CNX Software […]
