Samsung adds DivX HDTVs

DivX and Samsung on Wednesday announced high-end Samsung HDTVs will support high-quality DivX video files under a multiyear agreement. The DivX Certified HDTVs should be available worldwide at the beginning of 2009, and will be able to playback DivX media files stored on USB devices or a DLNA-certified Ethernet connection. Samsung already offers DivX-certified products that range from cellphones to DVD players.

DivX is a high-quality video codec that keeps file sizes small by using lossy MPEG-4 ASP compression. It is commonly used on downloadable files and its adoption in Samsung TVs will let users enjoy content created on or acquired from their PC in their living room.

LG and HP already make DivX Certified HDTVs. Samsung has not announced any more specific information about its upcoming DivX Certified HDTVs, including pricing.
