Zappiti to launch Zappiti Pro 4K HDR Audiocom Cinema Edition, a new ultra high-end UHD media player 


London — UK, October 2019 --
In partnership with the famous UK company Audiocom AV Ltd (Zappiti UK Distributor), the world leader in 4K media players and audio video servers brand Zappiti unveils the Zappiti Pro 4K HDR Audiocom Cinema Edition, an enhanced version of the ISF certified player.

Presented at the CEDIA Expo 2019, the award winning Zappiti Pro 4K HDR is the world’s first media player to receive the ISF certification by the Imaging Science Foundation. The Zappiti Pro 4K HDR Audiocom Cinema Edition takes Zappiti’s platform and improves it to create a true, no-compromise 4K universal media player of truly world-class quality and performance.


Power Supply upgrades:

Audiocom’s Pro 4K Cinema Edition features an improved power supply using components specially selected to achieve the lowest noise; including high current Schottky diodes, audio-grade low ESR capacitors with additional film bypassing. The benefits are a reduction in noise artefacts at the output resulting in a cleaner power supply. 


Main Board and Zero Signal board Modifications:

The standard SMD electrolytic capacitors on the main board for bypassing and decoupling are upgraded to the best low ESR OS-CON polymer capacitors. These capacitors provide excellent noise reduction to the local regulation and integrated circuits for optimum data processing. 

The performance of the Zero Signal board is also enhanced by utilising OS-CON Polymer decoupling capacitors.


Femto Clock

Realising the importance of low jitter in the video domain, Audiocom installs a very high precision clock for the Realtek RTD1295 processor (SoC) to optimise the video and audio data processing. The new clock is highly accurate to within 0.01ppm with an extremely low jitter figure of 77 Femtoseconds making it one of the lowest in the industry.


New Power Supply Filtering

Audiocom equips the Pro 4K HDR Cinema Edition with enhanced power supply filtering; for a cleaner AC mains supply. A very high-quality Furutech NCF IEC inlet with 6N Copper wiring is fitted to the power input board. Furutech’s NCF technology provides the ultimate electrical and mechanical damping to the incoming power line achieving a lower noise floor. 


EMI/RFI Conditioning

A digital media player is a busy environment for electromagnetic noise. This high-frequency noise spectrum can pollute the sensitive power supply circuits and reduce performance. Audiocom applies a material that works to cancel out the negative effects of EMI noise and improve the conditions for video and audio signal transfer.


The World’s Best 4K Media Player

The Pro 4K HDR Cinema Edition player raises the bar for video and audio playback, taking picture and sound quality to exciting new heights. The video playback has improved picture depth, deeper Black levels, greater contrast, increased dynamic range, more natural tones and colours making movie watching an immersive experience. The sound quality is equally thrilling, reproducing a captivating sound both from the HDMI audio and digital audio outputs. Spoken voice is clearer and more discernible, with film scores having an increased sense of acoustic space, greater dynamics, improved depth, and a more natural tonality. 

"We are proud to be able to offer this modification of the fabulous Zappiti Pro 4K HDR in partnership with Audiocom AV, Ltd," said Christophe Cherel, marketing director at Zappiti World. "This modification raises the bar even higher with unmatched image quality and improved digital audio output."


Price & Availability

The new Zappiti Pro 4K HDR Audiocom Cinema Edition is now available in pre-order, priced GBP 1599.00 or EURO 1799.00 and shipping on Oct. 20. Modification only is priced GBP 900.00 or EURO 1000.00.

Notice: This modification is the only one certified by Zappiti with an official warranty.
The players support feet are unchanged from the original unit. Several types of isolation feet were evaluated with different equipment racks and the results were varied, inconclusive and in some cases the performance degraded. Therefore, we recommend customers try their own choice of isolation feet or platforms and decide if there are any performance benefits.

International company Zappiti demonstrates media servers engineered to deliver the highest audio and video quality possible for a range of home entertainment needs.

CEDIA Expo Booth #3255

Denver, Colorado — USA, September 2019 -- Zappiti, the award-winning international brand and world leader of 4K media players is rolling out a suite of high-end media players to the U.S. marketplace, securing a positon as a leading provider of entertainment for elite home cinemas. The company debuts its flagship Pro 4K HDR media player, one of the first in the AV industry to receive ISF certification, as well as a broad range of other players to suit the unique demands of a variety of home cinema applications.

Built into every Zappiti media player are technologies to ensure unmatched picture and sound quality: Dolby Atmos, DTS:X, 4K HDR, Parental Control, and IP Control, to name a few. Other proprietary technologies, such as Zappiti’s MagicPixel technology, further enhance the entertainment experience by allowing each frame of video to be deeply analyzed, entirely cleaned and rebuilt for a picture perfect rendering of the original cinematic performance.

“The Zappiti R&D team spent years designing a software ecosystem specifically for discerning customers, combined with a top-of-class hardware platform to deliver the best viewing experience possible,” says Rick Martin, COO of Zappiti US Inc. “Every single detail has been optimized for perfection.”

 

Zappiti Media Server Lineup: A Player for Every Home Cinema Application

Zappiti will introduce 5 different high-end 4K media servers at CEDIA EXPO 2109. Each player offers the same caliber of software and hardware, but with different storage capacities.

· The newest addition to the Zappiti media server portfolio is its flagship Pro 4K HDR. The most advanced player in the lineup, the Pro 4K HDR features a dual rack enclosure to store up to 32 TB of video and audio content internally. ISF-certified, it boasts technology and high-grade components and circuitry to deliver the best movie viewing experience possible.

· The Zappiti Mini 4K HDR is equipped with a SATA connector for external HDD (up to 16 TB). Small enough to mount behind a display, it is Zappiti’s most cosmetically conscious media player.

· The Zappiti One 4K HDR offers up to 16 TB of audio and video storage internally to handle larger movie libraries.

· The Zappiti One SE (Special Edition) 4K HDR features the same 16 TB storage capacity as the Zappiti One 4K HDR, but with the addition of an HDMI audio output and HDCP support.

· The Zappiti Duo 4K HDR offers dual enclosures to support up to 32 TB of storage, Its storage capacity is the same as that of the Pro 4K HDR, but without some of the bells and whistles.

 

Unique Features Across the Product Line

· Oppo-Digital Lineage. Designed in part by an AV integrator, Zappiti media players offer many powerful features to simplify installation and provide home theater enthusiasts with hundreds of hours of high-quality entertainment. “The integrator who designed our players was one of the first resellers in Europe of the popular and now discontinued line of Oppo-Digital media servers,” says Zappiti marketing manager Rémy Pariselle. “He took the very best features of Oppo players, like their unique power supply, and put them into Zappiti’s media servers. We like to say the Pro 4K HDR, in particular, is Oppo that’s been turbo charged.”

· Unique Software Suite, Integration Friendly. One of Zappiti’s greatest statements of success is the unique software suite found in each and every player. With no reliance on third-party solutions, Zappiti’s software is designed and built exclusively for its hardware. As a bonus, Zappiti media players can be easily integrated with popular home control systems, including those from Control4, Crestron, and others.

· Multi-room Capabilities. The content stored on a Zappiti media player can be automatically synched with other players to share content across the entire ecosystem to provide a multi-room viewing experience on displays throughout a residence.

· Performance Enhancements. Zappiti media players feature Direct Output technology and R-Core power supply capable of producing low noise and lower external magnetic field interference than standard power supplies. Featuring an ultra-rigid steel chassis, specially engineered feet to reduce vibrations, and zero signal transport to cancel mass-loop effects, Zappiti media players deliver superior sound and video.

 

Building a U.S Dealer Base
