LSI Logic Corporation and DivXNetworks, Inc. today announced that LSI Logic’s third-generation DoMiNo 8603 (DMN-8603), will be one of the first DivX Certified single-chip DVD recorder system processors to enable DivX encoding and playback.

“LSI Logic has established a strong position in the DVD recorder market, and their early adoption of DivX encoding technology will provide significant value to OEMs looking to implement a full-featured, high-performance DVD recorder solution that enables consumers to create and playback DivX video,” said Bill Holmes, director of product management, Consumer Electronics at DivXNetworks, Inc. “Additionally, consumers will benefit from the increased recording capacity enabled by DivX Certifed encoding solutions.”

Representing a breakthrough in DVD recorder features, the DMN-8603 integrates a wide variety of technologies and features, including DivX encoding and playback, SACD and DVD-Audio, SD-to-HD upconversion, HD-JPEG, YesDVD, Direct Digital Dub technology, and DoMiNoFX proprietary pre- and post-processing technologies.

“LSI Logic is pleased to have one of the first DivX encoding capabilities on a single-chip DVD recorder processor, further validating our leadership in this rapidly growing market,” said James Fox, director of DVD product marketing, LSI Logic’s Consumer Products Division. “DivX is among the world’s most popular video compression technologies with over 160 million users worldwide, so we’re pleased to support this feature in the evolving digital home.”
