Ferguson FBOX 3 TV - hardware decoding

Hardware support
for audio/video decoding

3 FBOX construction is based on AMlogic S805 processor. It is a modern, highly specialized system, which main task is to support hardware media playback. The processor has build-in decoding of (among other standards):

  • h.264 and h.265 video codecs up to 1080p with 8-bit colour depth
  • MP3, AAC, WMA, RM, FLAC sound codecs
  • Dolby, DTS, SRS, DviX HD, AC3 sourround sound codecs

For the user, this means immediate device interface feedback, even with very intensive operations and – most importantly – smooth video playback even in very high quality (encoded with a big bitrate).

Ferguson FBOX 3 TV is equipped with a very efficient quad-core Mali-450 GPU unit, whereby the device perfectly handles even the most complex 3D games and media decoding tasks to a resolution of Ultra HD (4K). Thanks to the many optimizations, Ferguson FBOX 3 TV takes full advantage of this power.

Ferguson FBOX 3 TV - dualband Wi-Fi

Dual-band Wi-Fi module
(2,4GHz/5GHz)

Working Wi-Fi networks effectively interfere with each other, which affects the link parameters and as a result it can significantly slow down the connection. This is especially noticeable when using the internet for demanding multimedia tasks, like watching HD movies on-line. Even if you have a very fast network connection, the bottleneck could be the transmission between the router and the device. The solution to this problem may be the use of a radio frequency band 5GHz. Ferguson FBOX 3 TV has a Wi-Fi module allows operation of the device in the 2.4GHz or 5GHz band.
