Samsung and DivX Announce Agreement to Add DivX Video Support to Leading Line of Digital Televisions

DivX, Inc. (Nasdaq:DIVX) and Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. today announced a multiyear agreement to add high-quality DivX video playback to a number of Samsung digital television models.

The new devices will join a range of existing DivX Certified products from Samsung, including DVD players, mobile phones and more. DivX is a high-quality digital video technology that allows consumers to create and watch content on the PC, living room and on the go.

“We are dedicated to providing the most compelling media experience through Samsung TV and AV devices. The addition of DivX support to our line of digital televisions will significantly enhance the consumer experience,” said Kyungshik Lee, Vice President of Visual Display Division at Samsung Electronics.
