LSI Logic Corp. disclosed that its family of 3G DoMiNo DVD recorder system processors will be among the first IC solutions to receive DivX Ultra certification. The recently launched DivX Ultra Certification program will bring consumers a fully interactive, cutting-edge digital media experience by enabling next-generation consumer electronics devices to support the advanced features of the DivX Media Format.

LSI Logic has long been an official DivX partner, with a number of DivX certified IC solutions, and was among the first companies to offer a DivX certified encoding solution to power DVD recorder and DVR devices. LSI Logic has received DivX home theater certification and supports DivX 6.0 on its DVD recorder system processors based on the flexible DoMiNo architecture, which is suitable for the advanced features of the DivX Media Format.

Key elements of the DivX Media Format supported in DivX Ultra certification include interactive video menus, multiple subtitles, alternate audio tracks, video tags and chapter points. DivX Ultra certified devices will support playback of all versions of DivX video, including DivX video-on-demand titles, while offering the premium, interactive experience enabled by the advanced features of the DivX Media Format.

Bill Holmes, VP of consumer electronics at DivX, stated, "The real value of DivX Ultra lies in extending the powerful, interactive features of the DivX Media Format beyond the PC to provide consumers with an interoperable, customizable digital entertainment experience across a range of devices and platforms."

Jim Fox, director of DVD product marketing for LSI Logic's consumer products division, added, "DivX has firmly established itself as an innovative technology leader helping create digital entertainment solutions that bridge the gap from the PC to the TV."
