LG to implement DivX on a wider range of products

LG has signed a deal with Rovi Coporation in California to implement DivX technology on a wider range of devices, including HD TVs, Blu-ray players, set-top boxes, tablets and mobile phones.

The agreement enables LG to implement DivX Plus HD, which allows playback of DivX.MKV files up to a resolution of 1080p.

"We look forward to helping LG provide its customers with consistent, high-quality video, whether they are on or offline, across multiple types of home entertainment and mobile devices," says Matt Milne, senior vice-president of CE sales at Rovi.
