Amlogic T968 Processor is Designed for Smart 4K UHD TVs and Smart Projectors

Amlogic S-series processors are the most well-known processors by Amlogic with parts like S905X or S912, but the company is also offering other families with the new A-series for smart audio applications, and T-series processor for televisions.

The latter have been around for a while, and also include HDMI inputs and digital TV tuners.

“DTMB and DVB-C DTV standard”
So dtmb supported but no dvb-t for the rest of the World? Amlogic made this soc for China’s needs only or what?

I guess if it does dvb-c it can also do t and s with te proper tuner… but in any case, android tvs might not run well with such a low end cpu… at least a comparable mtk is plain crap

FYI, the Amlogic T962E will be in the Google / JBL Link Bar (Android TV) as it’s a SoC supporting multiple HDMI-IN. 😉
