Driving Innovation in Video Technology
“We have a view of what the future of digital media convergence looks like and we navigate by that star.”
– Jordan Greenhall, DivX co-founder
Since 2000, DivX’s inventions and technologies have driven the progress of high-quality digital video as it has spread through the internet to every platform and screen size imaginable.
It all started with the DivX codec. DivX implemented then-cutting edge encoding technology better and faster than anyone else, providing superior compression. And DivX put its codec in consumers’ hands. For the first time, users could compress, transfer, and decompress DVD-quality videos over the internet. As popularity of transferring high-quality videos over the internet increased, DivX DRM met the demand for content protection.
The DivX codec and DivX DRM helped DivX capture a sizable consumer base and expand its footprint in the market. By 2003, DivX had the vision to build the entire DivX ecosystem, including Hollywood studios, TV networks, consumer electronic devices, and infrastructure.
Today, DivX technology solves the challenges to securely streaming video to multiple screens by enabling professional content preparation tools; adaptive bitrate streaming and download to device; live streaming; Hollywood-approved DRM; secure players; and 4K/Ultra HD content.
