Remix Mini is just like the tower PCs that are traditionally found in homes and offices. However, it's much, much smaller, more affordable and it runs on Android rather than traditional PC operating systems like Windows or Mac OS.
Remix Mini is available for presales purchase through Kickstarter.com. Please visit our Kickstarter page while the campaign is still running. After the Kickstarter campaign is over, Remix Mini will be available for purchase through www.jide.com. Please check back here for more details after the Kickstarter campaign is over.
We plan to ship Remix Minis in October, 2015. Please visit our Kickstarter campaign page for updated information regarding shipping.
Through our Kickstarter campaign, we are making Remix Mini available across the globe. After our campaign, we will be directly shipping to select countries and working with distribution partners in other regions of the world.
We believe in the ideas of sustainability and doing more with less. This ideal can be applied across many levels such as cost of product, amount of hardware and specs that are required to provide a full PC experience and the resources a PC needs in order to operate.
A user manual will be included in the box with each Remix Mini. We will also be making the user manual available on our website before the first batch of Remix Minis reach their owners hands and we'll provide the link here. Stay tuned.
For ONE (1) year after receiving your Remix Mini, we will repair or replace it with a new one if there are inherent major defects related to the hardware. Inherent major defects are defined as problems that don't allow the device to function normally. For instance, if your Remix Mini can't start up, or it doesn't power at all, these would be considered inherent major defects. Hardware defects that result from clear negligence, misuse or abuse of the hardware by the user are not covered by this replacement policy. Please be in possession of the hardware in question and be prepared to supply us with photos and a detailed description to show the inherent major defects you are experiencing.
Yes, you can. Please submit your invoice request here http://support.jide.com/hc/en-us/requests/new
Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for product review and interview requests.
Remix Mini supports up to 4K x 2K resolution.
You can connect Remix Mini with HDMI. You may need to source a converter if your monitor only supports VGA/DVI/DisplayPort/etc.
In the package, we provide a power adapter which will cover universal international standards (input 100-240V, output ~5V).
It really depends on the touchscreen monitor you have in mind. Let us know in detail and we can give you an accurate answer. Feel free to write to us at email@example.com.
Currently Remix Mini does not have dual monitor support, but we are actively working on this.
Yes, most existing USB keyboard and mice will work fine with Remix Mini. You don't need to buy Android specific hardware.
Yes, Remix Mini will support control inputs from keyboard and mouse for games that are optimized for keyboard and mouse. You can also connect game controllers to your Remix Mini for your gaming pleasure. We'll also be testing many of the most popular games on the market and will continue to work and optimize them for keyboard and mouse controls on Remix Mini.
As we start testing Remix Mini for different use case scenarios, we'll be able to give you a more accurate answer. Please be patient because as with each usage scenario (ie. gaming, video watching, document creation, etc.) we'll be testing different sub-scenarios in order to give a more accurate answer to Remix Mini users. However, for touchscreen heavy games, there might be a period of optimization work for us to go through before each major game works seamlessly on Remix Mini.
There is no mic port on Remix Mini. However, the audio jack supports mic function on your earphones and connecting webcams with mics will also solve your mic needs.
An IR controller is not included with this generation of Remix Mini. However, the chipset we're using does support IR so most IR controllers should work with Remix Mini. Give us a bit to test out different IR controllers before we give official suggestions of controllers that work well with your Remix Mini.
Our connectivity is through either WiFi 802.11 b/g/n or 10/100 BASE-T Ethernet. The network speeds you're connected to and the streaming application will also affect your stream quality. For most cases, Remix Mini should be able to handle your streaming needs.
· Supports H.265 4K@30fps video decoding
· Supports multi-format 1080p@60fps video decoding, including H.264 BP/MP/HP, VP8, MPEG1/2, MPEG4 SP/ASP GMC,H.263 including Sorenson Spark, WMV9/VC-1, JPEG/MJPEG, etc
· Supports H.264 1080p@60fps or 720p@120fps video encoding
Worldwide voltages range from around 100 to 240. Our power adapter has an AC adapter that safely converts any voltage, within the worldwide range, coming out of the wall socket into a safe operational current for the device.
At the core of the Remix Mini is our custom engineered version of Android Lollipop - Remix OS 2.0. Your Remix OS will be regularly upgraded every 2-4 weeks through over-the-air (OTA) updates.
Remix OS is evolving towards a lightweight and streamlined experience for the users which means we're not pre-installing any apps on your Remix Mini. However, you're free to download and install any app from your preferred Android app store.
For foreign languages, we have unlocked all stock Android languages on Remix OS. That means 80-90% of text will appear in your native language. Also, you will have access to keyboard input for your selected language. For the remaining 10-20%, we will need a few more months to fully localize for all languages.
We don't recommend rooting your Remix Mini since rooting will void the warrenty for Remix Mini.
