DivX today announced the first line of DivX Certified HDTVs from Sony.
Available now in Europe and other regions, the BRAVIA EX, BX3/BX4, HX, and NX5 series TVs will be capable of playing back digital video and Hollywood movies in the high-quality DivX format.
DivX technology allows digital videos to be compressed to a fraction of their original size while maintaining excellent visual quality. For example, eight full-length standard definition movies in the DivX format can fit on an 8GB USB drive. With the DivX format, full-length movies can be quickly downloaded from the Internet and played on DivX Certified Sony TVs, as well as other consumer electronics devices.
