- CM4 Media is a multimedia computer designed based on Raspberry Pi Compute Module 4. It provides 2 channels of USB3.0, 1 channel of USB2.0, 1 channel of Gigabit Ethernet interface, 2 channels of HDMI interface supporting 4K video output, 8 megapixel camera and 2 channels of stereo speakers. You  can play Audio and video without additional accessories.
- You only need to press the power button to start or shut down the computer like operating a Windows computer. The operating system can be installed on the SSD hard disk and it boot faster than from SD card. The large-capacity SSD hard disk can store various video data. The access speed of SSD hard disk is up to 300MB/S.
- CM4 Media installed Raspberry Pi certified external WiFi and Bluetooth dual-band antennas to provide better wireless signals.

- You can load different application software to turn the CM4 Media multimedia computer into a network set-top box, network storage server, wireless access point and other different devices.
- CM4 Media’s case is made by CNC-cut aluminum alloy, very beautiful. The case provides excellent heat dissipation performance for the CPU, PMU and wireless module, which improves the system reliability. You can choose silver and pink color.

Order Information


1. Can I run overclock mode on CM4 Media?
It is fine to run overclock mode because of the excellent cooling performance of CM4 Media. Users can set higher operating frequency of BCM2711.
We did some testing, CM4 Media can operate well at 2GHz but the casing is very hot. We don’t suggest to run CM4 Media at a GHz higher than 1.5 (defaulted frequency value) in a long time.
2.What is the maximum memory of CM4 Media?
8GB as maximum. 1GB/2GB/4GB/8GB LPDDR4-3200 SDRAM Optional
3.What are the Storage options?
Support boot from SD Card( Capacity can be choose from 32GB~256GB); Or Support boot from SSD hard disk driver(Capacity can be choose from 120GB~1TB; Or Support boot from eMMC ( 8GB/16GB/32GB).
