The UHD5000 includes two USB 3.0 ports and SATA interfaces, which ensure high-speed two-way read and write. Other connections present on the UHD5000 include dual HDMI outputs for separating video and audio, RCA + XLR audio output (L+R), RCA Video, Toslink Optical, Coaxial, Gigabit LAN, and more.

Independent Dual Power Supplies

The digital and analogue circuits of the UHD5000 are equipped with independent power supplies. The large toroidal linear power supplies provide strong and clean power for audio components and has excellent efficiency in order to reduce external magnetic field interference and provide cleaner picture and audio. Another switching power supply is specially designed for the digital circuits. The efficient direct current output improves the quality of audio and video output.

Exquisite Craftsmanship Handpicked Components

UHD5000 analogue output can present audiophile monitor-level sound quality. The circuit design and materials are handpicked. The main board is made of immersion gold technology, which is equipped with four audiophile operational amplifiers and selected audiophile auxiliary components including NICHCON, WIMA, ELNA etc. Every detail is made with great effort to improve the audio quality.

High-end HiFi Audio Decoding

UHD5000 has a USB DAC IN port, which greatly expands the audio function. UHD5000 becomes a high-performance audio decoder after connecting to music streamer with SUB output. Sound quality is as good as high-end independent decoding device

Fully Balanced Signal

UHD5000 adopts a fully balanced design for the RCA stereo output, XLR output and DAC decoding. It provides better noise immunity. The channel separation degree is improved and the signal quality is more stable and powerful by eliminating the shared loop.

ESS9068 Monitor-level DAC Audio Decoding

Zidoo has reached a deep and long-term strategic cooperation with ESS. The UHD5000 is equipped with a new generation of ESS 32-bit HyperStream ESS9068 DAC decoder chip. In addition to supporting DSD512 and PCM768@32bit decoding, it also supports three-layer 8 times expanded MQA encoding format hardware decoding.

MQA (Master Quality Authenticated) MQA is an award-winning British technology that delivers the sound of the original master recording. The master MQA file is fully authenticated and is small enough to stream or download. UHD5000 adopts MQA technology to receive and decode MQA audio and provide master-level sound.

XMOS + Dual Crystal Oscillators

UHD5000 is equipped with XMOS chip. It works perfectly with Zidoo music player to process ultra-high-sampling master-level audio formats, and can losslessly transfer the original data 1:1 to high-index DAC for hard-decoding output. Two high-precision crystal oscillators (45.1584MHz and 49.152MHz) respectively correspond to 44.1KHz and 48KHz multiplier sampling, which effectively reduce jitter and ensure more accurate audio decoding


Powerful Chipset

TheUHD5000 is equipped with Realtek RTD1619BPD Quad-core 64bit high-performance processor with 12nm technology and embeds 1.6TOPS neural network processor. In addition to a faster response speed and more efficient computing capability, the benefits also include strong decoding performance which supports accurate UHD decoding and excellent image quality output. This chipset boasts a 20% performance increase when compared to the previous generation model, the Zidoo UHD3000. This means accessing your favourite entertainment is faster, and the UHD5000 is capable of running any application you throw at it.


WiFi and Bluetooth

The UHD5000 has a built-in 2.4G+5G dual-band 2R2T MIMO WIFI module. Supporting WIFI 6, the Z20 PRO has a wireless transmission rate of up to 1201Mbps. With high-gain antennas. it avoids interference and is able to maintain a stable and high-speed connection even in a harsh network environment.

Equipped with a Bluetooth BT 5.2 module, the UHD5000 enables you to connect wireless Bluetooth devices such as remote controls, keyboards, speakers, headphones, and more.


4K UHD Image Quality

The Zidoo UHD5000 image engine and Hexa-core A55 processor can easily decode 4K HDR images encoded with HEVC/H.265 standards. Supporting Dolby Vision LLDV processing and 3840 x 2160 60Hz output, each pixel appears natural, and images are clear and vivid even on a large screen.

Stunning HDR Technology

A new HDR processing engine can deal with HDR10 static metadata (MaxFall, MaxCll) more accurately. Colour contrast is incredibly defined, ensuring both highlights and shadows are displayed perfectly, which delivers images much closer to the true-to-life scene.

Conversely, the UHD5000 supports HDR to SDR conversion, meaning you can display HDR movies very well on SDR screens via dynamic correction and colour reproduction.

Higher Level HDR10+

The Zidoo UHD5000 takes the lead in providing HDR10+ and Dolby Vision technology in a media player/streaming device. HDR10+ technology is capable of not only displaying peak brightness up to 4000 nits, but also processing metadata accurately for each frame. Namely, colours and brightness levels are obtained frame by frame and scene by scene, images could be displayed in details with wide dynamic contrast and richer colours.

Dolby Vision VS10 Technology

The UHD5000 integrates the Dolby Vision VS10 image engine, which supports Dolby Vision low latency (LLDV) output. Dolby Vision has adopted advanced dynamic metadata processing technology, so that the most suitable brightness could be output for images and scenes of each frame. Shadows are darker while highlights are brighter. Even in the dark and weak-light environment, it also displays the best visual effect.

No matter the format (Dolby Vision, HDR, HLG, SDR, etc.) display device (TV, projector, monitor, etc.), or whether the UHD5000 is outputting HDR or SDR, colours are accurate for an incredibly immersive experience.

* Brightness range: 0.007nits – 10000nits


12Bit Colour Depth

The UHD5000’s new image engine not only supports 10 Bit (approximately 1.07 billion colours) decoding and outputting at the resolution of 4K 60Hz, but also supports higher colour depth 12 bit (approximately 68 billion colours); 12 bit has much more vibrant colours and more natural colour transitions.

Wider Colour Range

The UHD5000 supports BT.2020 wide colour range which can display 75% of perceivable nature colours and closer to what human eyes could see, while traditional BT.709 can only display 35% of natural colours. This results in bright and eye-catching colours, rich and full images, and a better sense of space, three dimensions and layering.

Accurate Frame Rate Switching

The UHD5000 supports switching original resolution and frame rate automatically and accurately (23.976, 59.94, 25, 30, 50, and 60). The new automatic switching algorithm allows completing the film frame rate switching in advance to ensure smooth and integral film playback.

Android 11 Operating System

With the integration of the Android 11 OS, the system performance, stability, and compatibility of the UHD5000 is greatly improved over the previous model. DRM widevine L1 is also supported.

Video Formats and Extensible Storage

UHD5000 is a powerful player, supporting BD/UHD Blu-ray (BDMV/ISO), 3DMVC (Blu-ray, MKV), MKV, M2TS, MTS, TS, MP4, MOV, AVI, WMV, MPG, MPEG, VOB, FLV, 3GP, TP etc. What’s more, it can connect external drives and hard disks (up to 16TB). NFS and SMB serves could be read in the same LAN.

Smooth Blu-ray Seamless Branching Playback

UHD5000 optimizes the video playback engine, which improves the Blu-ray seamless branching playback and says goodbye to stuttering and messy playback issues. BD and UHD Blu-ray navigation are played just like enjoying movies in a cinema.

Poster Wall

UHD5000 comes with new movie posters management system. It has concise navigation, personalised category, record viewing and custom collection etc. It makes movie collections more convenient and fully improves the efficiency of mass movies management.
