PARIS, FRANCE--(Marketwired - Oct 1, 2015) - Zappiti, leader in media center solutions, has just expanded the 4K family with the launch of Zappiti Player 4K Duo, the next step in the continuing evolution of the Zappiti Player 4K family.

Forget expensive outboard video processors!

The Zappiti Player 4K Duo incorporates Zappiti™ MagicPixel technology, which offers outstanding picture quality much better than previous generations thanks to improved dynamics, accuracy colorimetry, more contrast, solid deinterlacing and better upscaling. Even on a full HD 1080p TV or a front projector, viewers will be astounded by the display image! In addition, the media player supports most digital audio and video formats, including all modern video standards such as HEVC, H.265, with Ultra HD 4K upscaling (up to 3840x2160 / 4096x2160) which results in a crisp and crystal-clear picture with four times the resolution of full HD.

The Zappiti Player 4K Duo is equipped with a hot swap internal SATA HDD 3.5" dual rack for huge total capacity (up to 16 TB). It is also equipped with a USB 3.0 port and an SD memory card slot. The Zappiti Player 4K Duo features powerful Wi-Fi with two antennas and Ethernet gigabit network capability.

This media player is also compatible with Zappiti Media Center v4, the most relevant media center system ever. Zappiti Media Center features a cover art exploration system for movie and TV show files with presenting information (subtitles, actors, director, and release date). Zappiti Media Center provides automatic indexation of movies and TV shows by category directly from the player or computer (PC / Mac).
