August 22, 2006–MOUNTAIN VIEW and SAN DIEGO, CA –OPPO Digital, Inc., (www.oppodigital.com), an innovative consumer electronics manufacturer, and DivX, Inc., the digital entertainment company that created the DivX media format, today announced the official DivX Certification of the OPPO Digital DV-970HD Universal DVD Player with HDMI.
The DV-970HD has received an abundance of positive reviews and enthusiastic support from the home theater community for its outstanding visual excellence and ability to playback various media and video file types, including the popular DivX media format. Additionally, the DV-970HD utilizes revolutionary technology to up-convert videos to high definition resolutions from standard definition for HD compatibility.
