SAN DIEGO, CA, December 4, 2014 — DivX, LLC, a leading provider of next-generation digital video solutions, will exhibit a number of solutions for the preparation, delivery, playback and sharing of high-quality multiscreen DivX® video up to 4K at the upcoming 2015 International CES Show, taking place January 6-9, 2015 at the Las Vegas Convention Center in Las Vegas, NV.

HEVC will be a key enabler driving 4K content delivery, over-the-top or through the cloud, to all screens,” said DivX President & CEO Kanaan Jemili, Ph.D.
“At CES, our DivX® OmniView™ suite of products will demonstrate how we’re making the efficiency and quality gains of the HEVC codec available to consumers by delivering high-quality video across multiple screens without compromising security or visual quality. CES is an invaluable opportunity for us to network with our customers and show them how our unique technologies continue to define video delivery across the Internet and multiple devices,” he added.
