DivX And Sharp® Team To Bring Premier Level Of DivX Certification To New Devices

SAN DIEGO and MAHWAH, N.J., Jan. 26, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- DivX®, a division of Sonic Solutions® (Nasdaq: SNIC), and Sharp Electronics Corporation today announced that Sharp will add DivX Plus™ HD Certification to its new LE835 and LE830 lines of AQUOS® Quattron™ LCD TVs as well as its new line of AQUOS Blu-ray Disc™ players, providing flawless playback of DivX MKV files in 1080p. Consumers who purchase the new Sharp devices will enjoy high-quality playback of DivX Plus HD videos and Hollywood movies in the DivX format directly on the products using any optical disc or through the SD card slot.

Key advanced DivX Plus HD features on the Sharp devices include support for as many as eight subtitle and audio tracks in a single movie file, smooth fast forward and rewind which makes it simple to navigate through a DivX Plus video, and auto chapter points so users can skip between chapters in a video when no chapters have previously been authored.

"Sharp is a global consumer electronics leader, and it's a testament to both our longstanding relationship and next-generation technology that they've chosen to add DivX Plus HD Certification to their 2011 LCD TVs and complete line up of Blu-ray Disc players," said Matt Milne, Executive Vice President and General Manager, DivX.  "We look forward to our continued partnership with Sharp to offer innovative home entertainment solutions to their customers."

"We were very happy with the customer feedback we received on our 2010 DivX HD Certified product lines, and so we chose to expand our relationship with DivX to incorporate their most advanced level of certification on our 2011 Blu-ray Disc players and LCD TVs," said Bruce Tripido, associate vice president, consumer electronics marketing, Sharp Electronics Corporation. "For us DivX Plus HD technology is like a stamp of approval, ensuring our customers that they can play their entire video collection including MKV files in a high-quality and secure way."

DivX Plus HD Certification is the premium level of certification available from DivX, awarded to consumer electronics products supporting the optimized playback of all content created with DivX software. Available on www.divx.com, DivX Plus Software allows users to create and playback H.264 video in an .mkv file container. DivX Plus HD Certified devices will playback all previous versions of DivX video and DivX Plus HD video files with the .mkv file extension and AAC audio created with third-party tools.

At CES 2011, Sharp introduced new AQUOS Quattron LE835 and LE830 Series LCD TVs which combine Sharp's X-Gen panel with Quad Pixel Technology and edge LED backlighting to deliver a superior and captivating experience. These series will be available in 60-, 52-, 46- and 40-inch screen size classes in the United States this spring. The company's HP25/35/75/205 Blu-ray Disc players will be for sale in the United States in March 2011, the HP35 will be sold in Europe, and the HP25 will be available for the rest of the world later in 2011.

Known for great performance, visual quality, and interoperability on any DivX Certified® device, DivX provides consumers with a comprehensive digital media solution supporting the majority of high-quality Internet video on their TVs or other consumer electronics devices. All DivX devices contain proprietary digital rights management technology and are capable of playing back premium movies in the DivX format from major studios.
