XTREME METRO UI Launcher
We Heard, We Listened, We Acted – Introducing the all new XMEDEX User Interface
We designed the XTREME TV Launcher to provide an elegant yet easy to use interface. It features a Metro design with easy access to your desired apps. The tiles represent folders, and have pre-installed apps within them. Users have the ability to customise what’s inside the folders, to better suit their needs. The XTREME TV home-screen also offers the end-user the ability to add & remove their desired apps to the bottom taskbar (favourites). We’ve also updated the Weather Widget which is now extremely accurate to pinpoint your location and displaying accurate Weather Results.

AirPlay / DLNA Support
Did you know, the XTREME Series devices come with a Licensed version of AirPIN PRO? AirPIN PRO is a service which enables the XTREME to be fully compatible with AirPlay & Apple Mirroring! This means you can Cast media content via your iPhone, iPad or MacBook directly to your TV via the XTREME. It doesn’t stop there, it also supports Mirroring – yeah, you can mirror your iOS device or Macbook’s screen directly to the TV.
Android Multi-Window Mode – LightBiz OS Desktop
Love Android but prefer a Windows style Desktop to get things done? All it takes is one click to transform the traditional Android OS to Multi-Window Mode in the new XTREME firmware.
LightBiz OS? LightBiz OS is a proprietary licensed software through RockChip which makes Android work more like a desktop operating system. Apps run in resizable windows, allowing you to multi-task with ease. It also brings a task bar to the bottom of the screen with a start menu-style app launcher to give you easy access to your apps & notifications. Multi-Window mode is not enabled by default, so if you prefer to keep the traditional Android system – you can.

It is also possible to record the screen of the device which is connected to the HDMI IN port. This technology is called PiP (Picture in Picture) or Video Overlay.
