At CES 2014 DivX would hear none of that H.265 is still 5 years away talk… Instead codec maker DivX is stepping up to the plate and swinging right now.
In September 2013, DivX launched DivX 10, the first consumer software to enable high-quality DivX HEVC video creation and playback. We beat VLC, Media Player Classic and GOM Player, and in just 3 months, DivX 10 has been downloaded more than 15 million times. We are also working with key chipmakers MStar, Broadcom and ST Micro to enable DivX HEVC 4K playback in televisions and set-top boxes.
All this revved-up innovation has led to DivX being able to show some mind-blowing advances in video here at CES, such as:
Split-screen display – HEVC vs. H.264
Live encoding, decoding and streaming of HEVC video
UltraViolet DRM approval & first DivX Plus Streaming Certified TV
DivX HEVC video on every kind of screen
Toshiba shows DivX HEVC video
According to DivX the price of Ultra HD TVs dropping, and with devices starting to support HEVC video playback, the time to get in on all this high-quality video goodness is now.
