Sony TVs running Android TV, and that will come out in the first quarter of this year, will be equipped with a new processor MediTek signed: the MT5595.
Televisions have definitely done much about them at this CES 2015, but we missed that information. MediaTek and Sony have partnered and will integrate the new MT5595 processor connected TVs from Sony. The firm took the opportunity to deliver information that had been careful not to give Sony presenting previous television: 4K Android TV devices to the Japanese brand will be the first to use this SoC. Sony has abandoned Qualcomm, with whom he used to work on a number of high-end products. It must be said that the higher prices charged by the American brand may be a good reason to opt for MediaTek, especially for very expensive products as is the case here.
“We are very proud to be the Sony of sides for the presentation of this new Android TV. The Sony experience will become the standard for smart TVs. This is an important opportunity for MediaTek to change the way people watch TV “spoke Ching-Jiang Hsieh, President MediaTek. What is surprising (at least some) is that the MT5595 processor is not a speed demon, as can be the Nvidia X1 which would be relevant in such devices. The SoC is based on ARM (arm big.little) with four Cortex-A17 cores and four Cortex-A7. It also supports HEVC codecs and 4K VP9 until 4K and 60 frames / second, and Quad 2K HEVC / H.264 at 60 frames / sec concurrent (4 stream).
