Rovi’s end-to-end solution comprises new MainConcept® encoding SDKs for professional content creators; the DivX Video Service™ with DivX DRM for protected content delivery for service providers, mobile operators and content retailers across multi-screen devices; DivX 10 consumer software tools for PC-based DivX HEVC creation and playback, and an extension to the DivX Certification program to allow IC and OEM customers to quickly bring to market mobile and consumer electronics products that support high-quality DivX HEVC playback.

DivX Plus Streaming ( brings a robust feature set to streaming media that is typically characteristic of the Blu-ray-like consumer experience.
