The Institut National de l'Audiovisuel (INA) of France and DivX today announced that DivX technology will provide the platform to allow web access and purchase of the holdings of the state owned multimedia archive.
INA will distribute thousands of titles from the archive's catalog online in the DivX format. DivX is a digital media format that enables video to be compressed to over 10 times smaller than MPEG-2 for digital distribution over IP networks.
"We chose DivX because of the unique DRM and interoperability they offer" said Safia D'Ziri, IT Director at INA. "DivX will enable our users to rediscover TV content on their television sets."
