LG Electronics announced the introduction of DivX Certification to its 2005 line of DVD devices for sale in Canadian retail outlets.
Thirteen different DVD products, ranging from portable players to DVD recorders to entire home theater solutions, will be available from retailers across the country this month. The DivX Certified LG devices offer users unprecedented flexibility in watching pre-recorded discs and discs that they have created from their own multimedia content.
LG's 2005 line-up of audio/video products are designed to create a complete entertainment experience that enables users to enjoy the widest variety of digital media formats. The DivX Certified DVD devices from LG include three different HTIB (home theater in a box) systems, four DVD recorders, and four DVD player devices, including a portable DVD player.
"We created our 2005 DVD product line to empower our users to enjoy the widest variety of entertainment content possible, and support for the widely popular DivX video format, which has become the standard for high quality, highly compressed digital video, is a key element of that vision," said LG Canada's Ross Snow, Director of Sales and Marketing.
"By including DivX capability in a variety of different DVD devices, LG Electronics is proving their commitment to creating and distributing products that meet the needs of the millions of users all over the world who are clamoring for products that support DivX video playback," said Bill Holmes, Vice President of Consumer Electronics at DivX, Inc.
