DivX Marks 100 Million Devices Certified

DivX Logo

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 world’s leading consumer electronics brands, including LG Electronics, Philips Electronics, Samsung Electronics, Sony Electronics, Thomson and more.
