Rovi Baked into Euro Set-Top

Sagemcom, a provider of set-top boxes in Europe, and Rovi announced that the Sagemcom BPRSI88-250 HD TNTSAT set-top has integrated Rovi's DivX Plus HD, the premium level of DivX certification. The DivX Certified box is currently available in France and is the result of a DivX technology licensing agreement between Rovi and Sagemcom. Rovi is demonstrating DivX Plus HD at IP&TV World Forum in London this week.

The DivX Plus HD profile is designed to play back personal and protected Hollywood entertainment in DivX (.divx and .avi) and DivX Plus HD (.mkv) formats from optical disc, USB drive, or streamed wirelessly between devices over a home network using DLNA. It's designed to support video resolutions up to 1080p and contains DRM technology.
