AC Ryan Veolo 4K UHD Media Player Review( 02/18/2015 )


When I first started out at TweakTown over four years ago now, one of my first reviews was an AC Ryan media player, and till this day, I still have two of them - one in each of my living rooms. They're great players with an excellent and simple UI, which playback everything I throw at them over my NAS without an issue.


Fast forward to the end of 2014, where they reached out to me asking if I'd like to take a look at their new Veolo 4K player, as they knew I was a big fan of their previous units, and an even bigger fan of 4K content. Of course, I said yes. While there's not much 4K content out there, I do have 4K-capable cameras that I use thanks to my Sony Xperia Z2 smartphone and GoPro Hero 4 Black Edition.


This gives me the ability to shoot 4K video and play it back on the media player, and thankfully I have a bunch of 4K-capable TVs and monitors to use, too. For the purposes of the review, I'm using my Seiki Digital 39-inch 4K TV.


When it comes to pricing, AC Ryan has priced it quite well considering its specifications, quality, and the inclusion of a quality, versatile remote control. That's not even getting into how versatile the Veolo 4K media player itself is, thanks to it being powered by Android.

AC Ryan Veolo 4K: A sturdy media player( 02/11/2015 )


The greatest advantage of the Veolo 4K is not its hardware features, but simply that AC Ryan did a good job of running Android on it.


AC Ryan's Veolo 4K managed to play the bulk of my test-video files with ease. While there were some volume issues with certain movies, I will not blame the player, because frankly, I am not sure of the video's encoding method in the first place.


The player easily handled subtitle files and managed to keep up when I skipped ahead to a scene or timecode. It also easily played a wide selection of container formats, such as Mpeg, AVI, MKV and MP4 files.


The player touts 4K compatibility and on a technical level, it means it is able to decode HEVC H.265 files in 3,840 x 2,160, 4K resolution. On the downside, 4K files are huge and not easy to find, so while I was able to test small 4K files, I was not able to test a full-length 4K movie on it.


Many Android players I have tested tend to perform sluggishly, but not this one.

Veolo 4K review: ultimate TV media player turns your TV into an Android device( 02/1/2015 )


Finding the right media player or smart TV box is no easy task. The Chromecast is among my favorites, but I will be the first to say it’s a bit restricted (more of a streaming device). Android TV and the Amazon Fire TV are awesome, but they need to evolve and get more support. You can move on to things like Apple TV and Roku, but those are even more limited in terms of apps.


Why is it so complicated to get a device that can do everything that your Android smartphones and tablets can do? It’s very possible – the right answer (at least before other platforms catch up with Android support) is to turn your TV into one big Android tablet.


There’s a good list of Android sticks and boxes that can accomplish this, but quite honestly, all the ones I have seen and tested are under-powered and… really suck. That is, until the Veolo 4K reached my doorstep.


The Veolo 4K is a powerful media player that brings all the power of Android right to your living room screen. It promises endless streaming capabilities and 4K resolution playback for those of you who have invested in an Ultra HD TV. IS it perfect? I won’t go as far as saying that, but it’s one hell of a smart TV that I actually enjoyed using.

Review: AC Ryan VEOLO 4K Media Player( 01/23/2015 )


The world of ultra-high definition (or 4K) video is at our doorsteps. As displays become affordable and content sources increase, 2015 is shaping up to be the year of 4K. Surprisingly, there’s not many set top boxes available that support video playback at 3840×2160 resolutions.


A.C.Ryan have created a media player that is 4K enabled and will set you up to consume 4K content as more of it becomes available. The relatively small box packs a punch with a Quad-Core A17 ARM Processor, it’s powerful enough to push the content, while remaining fanless, critical in achieving the best movie experience. The device supports 4K H.264 or the newer H.265 codec, as well as MKV and BD-ISO.


Of course you can insert media via MicroSD cards or USB drives, but more commonly you’ll source your content from online. The VEOLO 4K Media Player features Gigabit Ethernet as well as Dual-Band WiFi. With support for 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands, you can prioritise traffic to make sure your playback is uninterrupted. Pushing the data required for a 4K is a challenging task in Australia and you’ll likely need the NBN or cable internet in metro environments for the best experience.


Downloading UHD content and then playing back on the VEOLO 4K is definitely one of its top attraction – especially with support for HDMI & S/PDIF Bitstream up to 5.1 Surround Sound. A.R.Ryan believe most will also setup their NAS/ media server for 24/7 downloading, and then utilizing the VEOLO 4K, stream these (ultra) high quality media over the home/ office network.


It’s a solid device that’s space efficient and has no fans, so is silent. I found it has no problems playing back 4K content, no signs of stutter or blur, just solid.
