DivX announces Mobile Theater Certification Program for HQ video

  • Chicago (IL) - Today at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona, Spain, and in a parallel event in San Diego, CA, DivX announced a new Mobile Theater Certification Program for their video codec to enable "A home theater-like experience at standard definition resolutions on a variety of mobile devices."

    The new certification supports DivX Home Theater resolution natively on cell phones with a TV-Out feature that can send playback to a TV or other media player. DivX claims users will be able to store up to 10 DVDs at Home Theater resolutions using the phone's 8 GB internal storage card.

    Users will reportedly be able to drag-and-drop standard "internet video content" to their phone with no conversion necessary.
