Toshiba And Rovi Team To Launch World's First TVs Certified For DivX Plus Streaming

SANTA CLARA, Calif., May 7, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Rovi Corporation (Nasdaq:ROVI), driving digital entertainment innovation, today announced that Toshiba Corporation is launching a range of DTVs Certified for DivX Plus Streaming . The latest agreement will help increase the reach of Rovi's advanced adaptive streaming format and enable Toshiba DTVs to support high-quality entertainment services from over-the-top providers such as KNOWHOW Movies by Dixons Retail in the UK.

DivX Plus Streaming brings a cutting-edge feature set to streaming media that is typically characteristic of the Blu-ray Disc consumer experience 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. Providing smooth and seamless transitions between different resolutions, Dynamic Resolution Scaling helps ensure consumers enjoy quick start times and continuous play even in low or fluctuating bandwidth environments.

"We are pleased to continue our relationship with Rovi and integrate DivX Plus Streaming to add to the high-quality viewing experiences that we offer," said Takahiro Uchida, Deputy Senior Manager, TV Products Dept., Products Management Div., Toshiba Corporation Digital Products & Services Company. "By integrating services such as KNOWHOW Movies with DivX Plus Streaming and enabling entertainment experiences that are flexible, convenient, and feature rich, we are providing even greater value to our customers."

KNOWHOW movies is powered by Rovi Entertainment Store, a technology solution that includes white-label storefront and playback client SDKs, cloud services, as well as content licensing, management, and marketing services. Rovi Entertainment Store, which is helping a range of retailers, service providers, CE manufacturers, content owners, and PC OEMs to drive revenue from over-the-top (OTT) storefronts and cloud-based entertainment, has adopted DivX Plus Streaming as its preferred method of content delivery.
