BERLIN -- Rovi Corporation (NASDAQ: ROVI) today unveiled DivX Plus® Streaming, a secure adaptive streaming solution for the delivery of a feature-rich, premium digital entertainment experience to connected devices including HDTVs, Blu-ray Disc Players, smartphones, game consoles, PCs, Macs, and cable set-top boxes. DivX Plus Streaming not only delivers video content in high quality, but also supports advanced multimedia features that have historically only been associated with Blu-ray Discs. In order to enhance the digital entertainment experience, DivX Plus Streaming includes support for 1080p high definition, subtitles, multiple language tracks, and trick-play features such as smooth fast forward and rewind, quick-start playback, and the ability to resume playback across devices. The DivX Plus Streaming SDK is available today for retailer, CE, and IC manufacturer integration and is being demonstrated at the Rovi booth at IFA, September 2-7, (Hall 25, Stand 146).

“DivX Plus Streaming is a solid addition to Rovi’s existing portfolio of white-label digital entertainment technologies and tight integration will be welcomed by CE manufacturers,” said Colin Dixon, Senior Partner, The Diffusion Group. “The inclusion of features such as smooth fast-forward, quick stream start and subtitle support are real consumer pain points with existing streaming solutions and will help differentiate DivX Plus Streaming in the market.”
