A collaboration between Rovi Corporation and fabless semiconduction maker Amlogic has resulted in what they say is the first DivX Plus HD solution available on an Android OS via the Amlogic AML-8726M series chipset.

DivX Plus HD, which Amlogic characterizes as the “premium level of DivX technology certification,” offers such advanced entertainment features as trick play, automated chapter points, and multiple audio and subtitle tracks. 

“By working with DivX to achieve certification for the DivX Plus HD profile, not only do manufacturers increase playback quality, performance, and compatibility, but they also enable consumers to easily transfer Internet video for enjoyment on an extensive, multi-manufacturer ecosystem of CE devices,” Rovi says. “Certified DivX Plus HD devices can easily play back personal and protected Hollywood entertainment in DivX (.avi) and DivX Plus HD (.mkv) formats, whether the content is on optical disc, USB drive, or streamed over a home network using DLNA. The DivX device ecosystem now includes more than 500 million DivX devices worldwide.” 

DivX Plus HD certification reportedly offers better visual quality while supporting video resolutions up to 1080p. Also, DivX Certified devices contain digital-rights-management technology to enable the secure playback of premium content in the DivX format, making it easy for consumers to enjoy video entertainment across a wide array of CE devices. Global online retailers offering Hollywood titles in the DivX format include Film Fresh, the WB Shop and Media Markt, all powered by the Rovi Entertainment Store.
