If you have not had the opportunity to watch a movie or series on a TV with Dolby Vision and Atmos, if you have not tried a smart assistant or if you just have not played with GeForce Now, let us introduce you to what is possibly the best current device for entertainment complete: Shield TV PRO.
All in one device, compact, discreet and powerful
Shield is possibly the product that least attracts the attention of the general public and is instead a multimedia device with such a good SoC and optimization that … We better talk about it directly and you already value it.
Shield TV PRO is a device both to play and to watch content, yes, all in streaming, where it is also the most advanced Android TV in the world and at the same time the most complete. We could summarize it in one: it has everything, but what is it all? You may be wondering, because we start with a Tegra X1 + SoC octa core that houses 4 Cortex A53s and four high-performance Cortex A57s and includes at the same time a GPU Maxwell with 256 Shaders.
This set allows you to natively decode H.265 and VP9 videos at 4K and 60 FPS, where it also does it with HDR. To provide information to this Shield TV PRO NVIDIA has added 3 GB of LPDDR4X RAM, so the set is capable of streaming 4K HDR videos with Dolby Vision HDR and HDR10 respectively. In addition, it integrates a ChromeCast 4K serial.
All in multimedia and gaming with GeForce Now
In audio it is not short either, because it is capable of working with Dolby Audio (Dolby Digital, Dolby Digital Plus, Dolby Atmos) and DTS-X surround sound through its HDMI 2.0b port. In sound quality it will be the same or better, since it allows:
- High-resolution audio playback up to 24-bit / 192 kHz via HDMI and USB.
- Hi-Res Audio Resampled up to 24-bit / 192kHz via USB.
- Audio supports: AAC, AAC +, eAAC +, MP3, WAVE, AMR, OGG Vorbis, FLAC, PCM, WMA, WMA-Pro, WMA-Lossless, Dolb Digital Plus, Dolby Atmos, Dolby TrueHD (pass-through), DTS- X (pass-through) and DTS-HD (pass-through).
To finish with this wonder, it integrates the main assistants on the market and their products: Google Home and Assistant, Alexa and Amazon Echo, so that we control everything without using our hands. As connectivity it supports 802.11ac 2 × 2 MIMO at 2.4 GHz and Wi-Fi at 5 GHz, Bluetooth 5.0 + LE, Gigabit Ethernet and is compatible with your HDMI 2.0b with HDCP 2.2 and CEC, in addition to including two USB 3.0 Type A ports.
Of course we can’t forget that NVIDIA’s streaming gaming service GeForce Now is running smoothly here, making it a delight to play on the TV or monitor with such a small and compact device.
This marvel that integrates Android 9 is on sale and has gone from costing 219 euros to 200.19 euros, a reduction in 9% versus yesterday’s price.
