LAS VEGAS, NV — DivX, LLC, a leading provider of next-generation digital video solutions, today announced that GoLive Movie, a new international video entertainment service, has selected its DivX® OmniView™ solution to power the secure delivery of high-quality, on-demand premium movie content to smart TVs. The new GoLive Movie service will first be available on television sets from TCL.

GoLive offers viewers a diverse selection of content, including television programming and on-demand movies for viewing on virtually any connected TV, phone or tablet. By selecting DivX DRM and adaptive bitrate streaming technology, the service ensures an optimized viewing experience to suit a range of Internet speeds. With an initial launch in China, the company plans to further extend the GoLive Movie service to a worldwide audience in 2015.

DivX OmniView technology enables secure video distribution and playback across multiple screens, including Android, iOS, Web, PCs, Smart TVs and set-top boxes. With support for video up to 4K and advanced streaming features, such as multi-language subtitles, chapter points and smooth trick play, DivX enables Over-The-Top (OTT) services to differentiate their experience as well as reduce operating costs using HEVC and DASH. In addition, DivX has been approved by the Digital Entertainment Content Ecosystem (DECE) for use with UltraViolet™ services. With a base of over 1 billion DivX Certified® devices, the DivX OmniView solution helps content providers and operators extend the reach of their services to multiple screens and broaden their subscriber base.

“Our secure DivX Plus Streaming® technology coupled with our proven DRM and content preparation tools offer a complete package for GoLive and other OTT service providers interested in launching a multiscreen video service,” said DivX President and CEO Dr. Kanaan Jemili. “DivX® OmniView™ enables customers like GoLive to deliver premium-quality content, securely, to multiple devices,” he added.

Consumers have a desire to watch new movies on their TVs, and DivX® helps us to securely deliver the latest cinema content to homes to meet their needs,” said Reagon Cui, COO of GoLive.

By utilizing DivX OmniView for OTT video delivery, GoLive Movie lets consumers watch new releases at home at an affordable price, while creating a new monetization opportunity for content producers through access to millions of screens.
