Targets the need for streaming multimedia and digital signage increasingly high in recent times, ECS is rumored to re-add the power lines of its flagship Liva Q AIO Mini PC by presenting one of its best models, which is claimed to be a serious competitor for the existence of similar products on the market today, such as Intel NUC, Gigabyte BRIX, and Zotac ZBox.
Rely on the cute form factor of only 7x7x3cm, ECS Liva Q proposed its pacemaker based on 7th-gen Intel Atom (Apollo Lake) processor quad-core processor Pentium N4200 or dual-core Celeron N3350. To give the performance of the existing system has no choice of 2GB or 4GB of RAM memory (which may not be expandable with the size of Liva Q). In addition to including 32GB or 64GB internal storage, users can also empower microSD card slots that support cards up to 128GB as additional storage.
The front of the Liva Q comes with each USB port 3.1 Gen 1 Type-A and USB 2.0 Type-A, while on the rear has a gigabit LAN plug (via RJ45 jack) and also support wireless connectivity handalnya AC-Wi- Fi built-in and Bluetooth 4.1.
As HTPC, the most important aspect of Liva Q is the presence of multimedia connectivity support that is presented. Because an HDMI 2.0 already exists, then HDCP 2.2 compliance should not be alarmed.
Although SoC Apollo Lake will not be constrained to crack the 4K h.264 / 5 content code, but in reality none of the Pentium N4200 or dual-core Celeron N3350 quad-core processors that inherently support HDMI 2.0. As with ECS competitors who use this SoC that avoids this limitation by using the DisplayPort converter to an internal HDMI, ECS Liva Q also reportedly anticipated by turning it on and off via an HDMI port that supports HDMI-CEC.
