Main differences between 1185 (500Mhz) chipset and 1073 (400Mhz) chipset:
1.Realtek 1185 uses 50nm manufacturing process while 1073 uses 70nm process. Using 50nm manufacturing process effectively reduces the heat and chip size at the same time improving the chip's performance. The chip also uses MIPS32 24kc pro version of the kernel with CorExtend feature.
2.BT downloading is a very CPU extensive task, non-stop data transmissions, read write I/O and LAN resources. Due to the small internal memory and lower clock speed of 1073, BT downloading has not been easy to use. Even software for P2P downloading, has not been very smooth during downloading. 1185 processor has a faster clock speed, larger internal memory; BT downloading has been easier and smooth.
3.NAS function - Although 1073 has NAS function, but it is not comparable to the manufacturer's to date NAS function. 1185 can be accessed by another PC or multimedia player over the network, access speed is a function of the current network traffic. With its built-in NFS service, high definition multimedia player 1185 can be accessed by other PC via FTP,
4.USB3.0 function - This function is important to high definition movies lovers. USB3.0 is a lot much faster than usb2.0.
5.Gigabit Ethernet function - This feature is quite interesting, when you download a film from a PC and would like to transfer it to internal hdd of player or upload it to internet, and if the router at home is also equipped with gigabit ports, then a gigabit network with maximum throughput can be achieved. Unfortunately, most home routers are not equipped with gigabit ports, only comes with 100Mbit Ethernet ports, creating a bottleneck and fail to achieve a complete gigabit network. Due to this reason, most players in China has drop the gigabit port function, replacing it with a standard 100Mbit Ethernet port. It is up to the user to choose if the gigabit port is needed. For example in Hong Kong, which has long entered the era of fiber-optic gigabit network, then user from this region should choose a high definition multimedia player with a gigabit port.
6.Webkit and flash internet support. Presently, these two functions have only limited applications. Webkit is not use for browsing the usual web page, and the 1073 has this VOD function realized through RSS, simple function, simple web page. Through the kernel supported Webkit features, integrating VOD enable a more beautiful and personalize VOD interface. It is also easy to achieve and provide security authorization permissions. Realtek has developed a VOD demo program and at the same time developed a server-side program, In time, embedded local VOD + online VOD should be quite easy to achieved, expanding the level of applications. All of these features requires future firmware enhancement. Presently, user can only surf part of the website.
7.Blu-ray menu navigation function - Starting with 1185 chipset, Realtek supports BD1.0 version of Blu-ray menu navigation. Besides not supporting BD-J and BD-live, all basic navigation are supported. For example, clip select, language select, audio track selection, etc. This is the main difference between 1185 and 1073, a feature not available in 1073, making it worth upgrading to 1085.
8.Media library function is a feature making it worth the upgrade. With this function, it is easy to make music, album and picture playlists, and during music playback easily add an album playlist or vice-versa. This is one of the function not available in 1073, and a function that cannot be realized, thus, no support for multimedia playlists.
9.1185 newly added deep color function. This is something that 1073 doesn't have. Dark (deep color) function can enable the few million colors of HDTV and other devices, to become a few billion colors that allow consumers to enjoy unprecedented vivid true colors.
K360i is the first Realtek 1185 based high definition multimedia player from Kaiboer. It has a black mirrored front panel design equipped with silver white control buttons. The LED display with acrylic front panel shows its noble elegance design.
K360i is equipped with a 500 megahertz main processor speed, has a large internal memory, and it has a great future expansion capabilities. Through the ultra high processing speed of the cpu, this media player was able to achieved the standard high definition video resolution of 1920x1080 output. Besides supporting both H.264 and AC1 video format, it also supports RMVB which meet the different video format needs of consumer. For audio formats, it supports lossless FLAC and APE/ It also has the second generation DTS/TureHD built-in audio decoder that can restore perfect sound quality to enable user to truly feel shocking audio visual effect of 7.1 channels. Kaiboer?��s K360i optimized circuit design with high end mainstream chipset?��s overall audio/video quality performance is at par or better than the most commonly used high definition media player using Sigma chipset.
In comparison to Himedia's hd600b, when it comes to playback, both players are almost the same. The main differences are the following ��C K360i has less network function than hd600b, it only has usb2.0, and 100Mbps lan support. HD600b uses usb3.0, and supports gigabit lan. The manufacturing cost of K360i is much lower than hd600b, and so the retail selling price is much lower. The heat dissipation of K360i maybe better than hd600b since it uses magnesium alloyed case.
Silver-white buttons for easy control even without the remote control.
The lefi side of the case provides 2xUSB2.0 ports which can be used to attached a wireless lan card, a usb external hard disk. It also has a built-in USB to PC port for connection to a PC for file management of the internal hard disk as well as the external hard disk. There is a provision for an external sata port besides the usb port, future version may include external sata attachment interface.
Kaiboer's patented hard disk tray can support up to 2TB, easy for user to change the internal hard disk
Kaiboer k360i rear connectors includes, YPbPr color difference, composite video, left and right virtual sound, coax, optical, HDMI, LAN port, power on-off switch.
Attention: HDMI cable can only be plugged or unplug while the unit is turned off. Equipment may be damaged while plugging or unplugging the HDMI cable while the unit is turned on.
Realtek 1185 consumes little power and doesn't need to be equipped with a heat dissipation mechanism; the exhaust fan on the back of the case is for the heat dissipation of the hard disk.
