DivX LLC, a leading provider of next-generation digital video solutions, today announced the launch of a complete, end-to-end solution to enable over-the-top (OTT) providers to create and deliver high-quality, highly efficient HEVC 4K video for protected playback on multiple devices. The company will be demonstrating all elements of the DivX® HEVC ecosystem at the 2014 NAB show in Las Vegas from April 7-10.
The DivX end-to-end HEVC solution is designed to accelerate the adoption of the latest compression standard across video distribution workflows. For content preparation and creation, DivX’s MainConcept® HEVC SDK adds support for real-time DivX HEVC 1080p software encoding, streamlining the integration of HEVC into video applications and OTT delivery. DivX also offers a number of solutions to drive multi-screen playback of HEVC 4K content, including the DivX Video Service™ and DivX DRM, which has been approved by Hollywood studios and DECE for Ultraviolet. The company also released a new DivX HEVC SDK for IC and OEM devices to support protected streaming and file-based playback of HEVC content.
“For the past year, we have been focused on delivering a complete end-to-end solution to create and deliver high-quality, highly efficient DivX HEVC content to multiple devices. Every piece of that ecosystem is now in place, and we look forward to working with our partners to help power a seamless, OTT video experience for consumers,” said Dr. Kanaan Jemili, CEO of DivX LLC.
DivX HEVC HD and UltraHD Certified Devices will support an advanced feature set for media playback including multi-language subtitles and audio tracks, trick-play track for smooth fast forward and rewind, chapter points for quick scene navigation, and resume playback across devices.
