ARMADA-100 Plugcomputer is capable of driving 720p60 (1280 x 720) resolution, and will also support 480p60 as required by the HDMI std.
Primary applictions are for UI on the TV screen. For a HDMI TV with 1080p capability, it is better to use Blu-ray player for watching video, for example.
For sure, UI content can include Video, Audio, Graphics, Annimation etc. and D1 resolution video play should be possible.
We have to strat with stable H/W and let the community "Breath the life with S/W" into it.Always-on, Always-connected, Green-computing = Plugcomputer
So do you recommend that this is not suitable for end user use at this time?
Depends on who is the "End user":
End users of consumer devices need solutions, and Plugcomputer is an enabler that encourages developers to get access to H/W, hence the name "DevKit"
It has Linux Console interface and JTAG debug interface, for sure not something a "consumer" end user would use.
Something coldler than the current guruplug server.
Yes, that is the plan. Thermal and power analysis and testing are currently underway.
