Infomir, a Ukrainian manufacturer of IPTV/OTT set-top boxes (STB), has announced on its website the release of MAG425A, the new flagship product running Android TV 8.0 to rival the devices from global brands.
Android TV 8.0, a voice-controlled remote, and 4K HDR support are touted as the Google-certified STB’s main selling points.
features a powerful ARM Cortex-A53 processor, 2 GB RAM, an HDMI 2.1a port, and its built-in dual-band 2.4/5 GHz Wi-Fi module ensures a stable connection even if the router is far away. For wired internet connections, an Ethernet port is available.
A new 4K HDR viewing experience
With four times the resolution of Full HD, 4K is very lifelike and full of detail—it is rapidly becoming an industry staple. HDR (high dynamic range) enables the most natural colour rendering, providing a wide range of contrast between shadow and light. Although, of course, it takes a 4K HDR TV to fully appreciate all that.
Android TV and voice control
A voice-controlled remote enables users to search for TV shows and films by name, rating, genre, popularity, or to cast with Google Assistant results from all the apps installed on the device.
The MAG425A can connect to IPTV/OTT providers and media streams, as well as play files from local storage. Also, users can stream videos, music, and films directly from their smartphones and tablets thanks to it’s Chromecast built-in functionality—the only prerequisite is being on the same Wi-Fi network as the STB. The device also supports Android TV games and is compatible with wireless BLE gamepads.
The new MAG425A is now officially available worldwide. Its retail price in Ukraine is UAH 2,199 (around USD 82).
