DivX is driving the adoption of the HEVC standard across the video industry sooner than anyone expected, and this was made clear at our exhibit during CES 2014.
For those who don’t know, HEVC is a new compression standard that promises to deliver video with up to 50% bitrate savings at the same quality as H.264. And 4K is a video resolution with four times the pixels of 1080p.
Just a year ago, industry analysts were saying that HEVC adoption for consumer content services was at least 5 years away and that devices wouldn’t support the standard until about 2015. But the DivX team is set on proving them wrong. In September 2013, we 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. Continue reading “DivX HEVC 4K at CES – today!”
Its been a month since DivX traveled to Las Vegas for the 2010 Consumer Electronics Show. We met a lot of great people, saw some awesome new products, and launched our brand new Internet TV platform called DivX TV.
In case you missed any of our coverage about DivX TV, we’ve wrapped it all up in to one post.
