Digital media company DivX and AV giant LG have announced a partnership that will see a new line of digital TVs become the world's first capable of playing back full DivX HD 1080p videos.
More than 200 models of LG digital TVs have already been DivX certified including the LH50, LH70, LH85, PS70 and PS80 series, but the newer models will be the first to play back full DivX HD.
Available in the States and Europe in late April and May, the new TVs will enable DivX HD playback from PC or internet through an incorporated USB port.
'Being first to market with digital TVs capable of playing back DivX HD 1080p video is a big win for LG as well as our customers', said Simon Kang, chief executive officer and president of LG Home Entertainment TVs Company.
'As people expand their DivX HD video collections they are looking for more convenient ways to watch them on their TVs. We've given them the ultimate convenience by building support for DivX HD playback into our digital TVs.'
