The company provides Android 9.0 and Linux support for the board.There’s no information about the HDMI input port capability, so it’s unclear whether it’s just a pass-through port, or it’s capable of more advanced features like video capture. The board was first announced in February 2019, but at the time I did not catch my attention. I came across it again today via a video on Notebook Italia shot at the Hong Kong Electronics Fair where other Geniatech SBCs were also on display.
