Realtek Chip Enables Full 1080p DivX Video on Set-Top Boxes
 
DivX, Inc. and Realtek Semiconductor Corp. has announced the DivX Certification™ of a new Realtek chip for Networked Media Box and PVR Set-Top-Box applications capable of playing back full high-definition video at the 1080p profile.

Realtek’s new chip, the RTD1262/RTD1282, increases the ability of consumers to capitalize on emerging high-definition content by delivering seamless playback of DivX® HD video at the 1080p profile. Through the superior compression and quality of DivX technology, consumers can enjoy a full HD experience on a Networked Media Box. Devices based on this chip will enable consumers to enjoy high-definition video stored on local and network HDD drives as well as USB flash drives.

“The growing demand for devices that support DivX, coupled with the rising interest in high-definition solutions, has compelled us to produce a chip that offers the best of both,” said a senior executive from Realtek. “DivX Certification for HD allows us to provide our partners with a compelling product that aids consumer adoption in an expanding high-definition market and we are pleased to work with DivX to enable a high-quality experience.”

“This new chip from Realtek breaks new ground by enabling native HD playback capability on a robust and affordable Networked Media platform,” said Patrice Lagrange, Senior Vice President, Products, DivX, Inc. “Networked Media Boxes using this solution will make the transition to HD easier for end-users, spurring broader consumer adoption and content support.”

Products that bear the DivX Certified® logo have undergone a rigorous testing program to ensure a high-quality DivX media experience, including reliable video playback, interoperability with other DivX Certified devices and the visual quality that users expect from DivX.
