Vodafone TV 4K Pro: IPTV Receiver, Assistant and Smart Speaker, all in one
The company Vodafone has just presented a hybrid device that fulfills the functions of a Dolby Atmos smart speaker with Alexa support, with Atika personalized assistant and the option to view Vodafone TV multimedia content with resolution up to 4K HDR.
The company just updated its IPTV decoder merging it with a large part of the functionalities that we already saw in the Vodafone Átika speaker.
For the first time, the company combines in a single device the functions of a 4K HDR IPTV decoder, sound bar Dolby Atmos, voice assistant and Wi-Fi 6 connectivity.
This deco is manufactured by the Sagemcom company, like the previous one, but increases the maximum resolution up to 4K and integrated HDR support. For this, higher bandwidth is required and this deco makes use of Wifi 6, in addition to the wired LAN RJ45 option.
The sound is provided by Bang & Olufsen who has developed a solution with a subwoofer and three directional speakers allowing Dolby Atmos support. It is also compatible with Bluetooth devices to be used as a speaker.
In order to be controlled by voice, it integrates four microphones in the upper part and it is Átika, the homonymous assistant that we saw on his speaker, who is in charge of executing the voice commands received such as changing the channel, moving when playing or consulting of programming. For the rest of the functions, it continues to respond to Amazon’s Alexa assistant.
There is also a physical switch at the top for silence it in case we are jealous of our privacy.
This device has a physical connection RJ45, HDMI and a USB port for hard drives and pen drives, reset button and coaxial antenna socket.
Vodafone TV 4K Pro, prices and availability
The new deco will be available from July 26, that is, the last week of July 2021. We are talking about a device that allows solving many ballots without the need to have 3 or four independent devices.
The price will be, in format monthly rent of 5 euros instead of the 3 euros that the current 4K deco costs offering all these extras of sound and HDR support.
