Toshiba is launching a range of DTVs Certified for DivX Plus Streaming.
The latest agreement between Rovi and Toshiba will help increase the reach of Rovi?s adaptive streaming format and enable Toshiba DTVs to support high-quality entertainment services from providers such as KNOWHOW Movies by Dixons Retail in the UK.
DivX Plus Streaming brings a feature set to streaming media that is typically characteristic of the Blu-ray Discs, such as multi-language subtitles and audio tracks, trick-play track for smooth fast forward and rewind, chapter points for quick scene navigation, and resume playback across devices. In addition, to help eliminate buffering or the "spinning wheel", DivX Plus Streaming includes Dynamic Resolution Scaling.
Toshiba?s DTVs Certified for DivX Plus Streaming with KNOWHOW Movies is expected to be available to consumers later this quarter in the UK.
