OSMC-powered Vero 4K Linux Media Player Available Now

0

The Vero 4K is the latest media player from OSMC/Raspbmc developer Sam Nazarko (who I interviewed in the early days of this site!)

OSMC is the evolution of Raspbmc, one of the first Kodi-centric Linux distributions for the Raspberry Pi. OSMC keeps its focus on Kodi but has now matured beyond its original platform and the Vero 4K is designed from the ground up to support it.

The device features 2GB of RAM, 16GB of eMMC storage, optical audio, Bluetooth 4.0, fast Ethernet and wireless AC. There’s no specifics on the chipset, though it’s listed as a quad core 1.6Ghz 64-bit SOC.

That chip includes HDMI 2.0 and HDMI CEC is supported, allowing you to control the Vero 4K from your TV remote.

There’s 2 USB 2.0 ports and a microSD card slot for adding storage.

It’ll obviously run OSMC and the company is claiming to offer 5 years of support, which is definitely impressive – particularly when most devices stop being supported after a couple of years (if that).

The Vero 4K is capable of 4K video playback and will play VP9 and 10-bit H.265 videos. HD audio passthrough is also supported, including DTS-HD Master Audio, DTS: X, Dolby TrueHD and Dolby Atmos.

Where to Buy the Vero 4K

You can grab the Vero 4K over at the OSMC store for £119 (Currently around $150) with free shipping at the time of writing

If you’re wanting to pick one up, use code HTLIFE-VERO to get 5 pounds off over at the OSMC store.
