4K UHD Image Quality
The Z20 PRO image engine can easily decode 4K HDR images encoded with HEVC/H.265 standards. Supporting 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 Z20 PRO 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 Z20 PRO 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
Z20 PRO integrates 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 could also display the best visual effect.
No matter the format (Dolby Vision, HDR, HLG, SDR, etc.) display device (TV, projector, monitor, etc.), or whether the Z20 PRO is outputting HDR or SDR, colours are accurate for an incredibly immersive experience.
12Bit Colour Depth
Z20 PRO’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 Z20 PRO 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
Z20 PRO 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.
