DivX Inc. has certified over 100 million devices since the launch of its certification program in 2003.
DivX is a digital media format that compresses lengthy video segments into small sizes while maintaining relatively high visual quality. The DivX codec uses lossy MPEG-4 Part 2 compression, also known as MPEG-4 ASP, where quality is balanced against file size for utility.
The 100 million devices represent over 2,500 individual product models that fully support the playback of high-quality DivX video files, including DVD players, DVD-recorders, portable DVD players, digital still cameras, mobile handsets and in-car devices.
Standalone DVD players constitute the largest device category for DivX, and the company estimates that 32% of all DVD player units sold worldwide support DivX video playback. DivX has become a checklist feature for DVD players in many regions, with DivX penetration reaching roughly 90% for DVD player units sold in countries such as France, Spain, Korea and Russia.
The DivX ecosystem is supported by the worldâ€™s leading consumer electronics brands, including LG Electronics, Philips Electronics, Samsung Electronics, Sony Electronics, Thomson and more.
