It appears the company will also offer a user-friendly way to watch VR videos / 360° videos on the TV by using a mobile app or remote control to navigate in all directions while the video is playing.

I could not find any information at all on the web about Hi3796M V200 processor, so thanks to Ovi for sending pictures directly from the Broadcast Asia exhibition, and allowing us to discover this new multimedia processor.

yes, indeed their names are confusing.

I have seen the Q10 and Q5 boxes before, but I didn’t recall seeing the A10 and A5 before (until yesterday, only by coincidence – the same day you posted about the new SoC) – so maybe this is why I got lost…

The VR part seems very capable, played a little bit but still is far from nvidia vr or amd Radeon VR.
Anyway vr on a stb seems to be the future gimmick of Chinese soc manufacturers…. there were some rumors at Broadcast Asia about an amlogic similar chip based on A72 cores with be capabilities… but just rumors
