The adaptive streaming solution, DivX Plus Streaming, not only dynamically adjusts streams to help deliver maximum visual quality based on available bandwidth, but also offers an advanced feature set with support for 1080p, subtitles, multiple language tracks, and trick-play functions such as smooth fast forward and rewind. DivX Plus Streaming expands the value of the already popular DivX Plus ® HD Certification program, which brings these same advanced multimedia features to 'download to own' video content.

"As digital media consumption proliferates, consumers increasingly demand easy and high-quality streaming media experiences, regardless of network infrastructure," said Stuart Thomson, senior director of product marketing, Broadcom. "By supporting the very latest in DivX Plus Streaming capabilities, Broadcom continues to deliver the next-generation in digital living - enabling users to easily download, stream and enjoy content virtually anywhere, anytime."
