Novatek will be integrating Rovi's DivX Plus Streaming into its upcoming system-on-a-chip (SoC) product, to target the high-volume flat-panel DTV segment.
The inclusion of DivX Plus Streaming will enable CE manufacturers to rapidly deploy devices compatible with a range of video services from retailers, operators and content owners.
The adaptive streaming solution dynamically adjusts streams to help deliver maximum visual quality based on available bandwidth, but also offers support for 1080p, subtitles, multiple language tracks and trick-play functions such as smooth fast forward and rewind.
"Our advanced multimedia solutions provide designers with an abundant array of features for a wide range of applications in Set Top Boxes and DTVs," said J H Chang, senior vice president of Novatek. "DivX Plus Streaming enhances this feature set and will help our customers deliver an optimised and trouble-free over-the-top entertainment experience."
