Announcement Z9X
« on: July 15, 2020, 09:14:45 AM »
Any plans to add Z9X? I do expect so frankly.

I am getting the strong impression that Z9X actually will be launched ahead of Zidoo X.
A due date and price should be coming very soon?

Z9X will be before Zidoo:X. I know not why.

Yes, we'll be selling it. We don't have an ETA yet.

My guess it is a try out as they always also do with new FW: Z9S first! Less risk taking with Zidoo X?

Now on their site officially too!
https://www.zidoo.tv/Product/index/model/Z9X/target/1vhOLOoLZ3NKKmVViAFMcQ%3D%3D.html
In fact it just looks like the original X9S!

Also the specifications for Z1000 PRO are out. It is a Z1000 with RTD1619DR, 32GB Flash and the V8 BT remote control! Nice upgrade  :D

No surprises just that Dolby Vision is mentioned everywhere without telling which practical applications are facilitated with it. But we will find out soon as it is clearly marketed in front of Zidoo X.
On this site it says late 2020 possibly september; but frankly I do expect it to be early august!

Oh yes you noticed also? The Zidoo X20 was removed from the product pages. Frankly expect the same to happen to X20 PRO soon too.

What's the difference between X9S and Z9S ? I see only VP9.2 support. There is no plan to support H.266 VVC.

Not yet. Zidoo won't let us start a pre-order or release price info. Soon..

Which model? Seems Z9X, Z10 PRO and Z1000 PRO will all be launched together.
The first time The Zidoo Home page is actually updated before availability and price information is given.

Frankly I do like the previous cases of Z9S and Z10 more too. But it is matter of taste.

It seems Zidoo will be aggressive on price as the new models were stripped a bit.
- Z9X coming with just 1 SATA port
- Z9X and Z10 PRO coming both with a 12V 2A PSU now.
That will work using just 1 SATA HDD but it is the bare minimum. I would never use them like that and move to an earthed 12V 4A unit instead (like already doing with my Z9S). Connecting 2x SATA HDD to Z10 Pro with the standard PSU is asking for troubles in my view.

The difference between Z10 Pro and Z1000 Pro on the other hand just got bigger with a V8 BT Remote included now. This next to the now far better earthed internal PSU (12V 4A?), gorgeous case and internal antennas.
My choice would be easy.  ;)

@futeko.com
Both Z10 Pro and Z1000 Pro do have a fan for sure. Please update. :P
