In addition to DivX HEVC streaming, Wowza Streaming Engine will also support DivX Live for the delivery of real-time content.

“DivX and MainConcept offer an outstanding HEVC solution, and we’re excited to work together to give our customers the ability to stream the highest-quality content to a wide range of devices,” said Mike Talvensaari, VP, Product Management, Wowza Media Systems.

The DivX end-to-end HEVC solution is designed to accelerate the adoption of the latest compression standard across the entire video distribution system. The 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 HEVC Certified Devices will support an advanced feature set for media playback including multi-language subtitles and audio tracks, trick-play track for smooth fast forward and rewind, chapter points for quick scene navigation, and resume playback across devices. To date, over one billion DivX devices, including over 30,000 unique models, have shipped worldwide from multiple major consumer electronics brands.
