Packard Bell announced the launch of the DVD-DivX 450 pro, a DVD player offering playback support for videos compressed with Nero Digital technology.
The Nero Digital audio and video compression system, co-developed with multimedia algorithm specialist ATEME, is a non-proprietary extension of MPEG-4. Nero's solution adds many DVD-like features that consumers expect in a home theater experience such as multiple AAC audio tracks, surround sound, chapters, and subtitles.
Packard Bell's DVD player includes a CD with 30-day trial version of three Nero applications to Create, Play and Share Nero Digital format: Nero Recode, Nero ShowTime, and Nero MediaHome.
The Packard Bell DVD-DivX 450 pro player with Nero Digital is now shipping and available through many consumer electronics retailers and
online stores. The manufacturer's suggested retail price is 79 euros.
