Meet Zoom, the Live Conferencing TV box
Now "Zoom Skype Video GoToMeeting Live Conferencing TV Box" is quite a name, but the Mini PC is surely different from any other device we usually announce here with it's 2MP camera, dual speakers and dual HDMI. Sounds interesting now?
Sure, the SoC used isn't particularly powerful (and slightly outdated), but the device does have multiple interface and connectivity options, basically does more than "turn your dumb TV into a smart TV", as most other TV boxes claim .
First of all, the device has two HDMI ports, one of which is dedicated to the live conferencing option, while the other for the "TV box" side.
Speaking about the TV box, the device does come with Kodi 16 (Beta 4).
The built-in speakers are a nice touch also. Sure, if you use it with the TV, you might want to use TV speakers also, but you might use the device with a HDMI monitor, which might not have it's own speakers.
Or you could use Zoom's speakers and it's Bluetooth 4.0 capability to play some music from your phone.
