LG Electronics and DivX today announced their partnership to enable a high-quality consumer media experience with the LG Viewty (Model: LG-KU990), a new 5.0 mega-pixel digital camera phone available from LG Mobile.
The LG Viewty enables consumers to easily playback a wide range of DivX files from the PC on the go or output to a TV monitor without converting to another format. Consumers can also view DivX files from popular online video communities such as Stage6.com at ten times the speed of WCDMA through the HSDPA 3.6 high speed internet access capability.
The LG Viewty features 120 fps video recording as well as unique camera functionality such as manual focus, image stabilizer and handwriting recognition that makes editing easy on the Viewty's 3-inch wide LCD touch screen.
"Our aim is to provide the highest quality images to users of the LG Viewty and have made every effort to ensure cutting-edge technology is applied to meet this vision," said Skott Ahn, CEO of LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company. "Our partnership with DivX and the Viewty's support for DivX video is an important feature in creating a state-of-the-art media experience for our consumers."
The phone will go on sale from mid-October starting from Europe and on to other regions.
