Available now in the United States and in Europe this summer, the REGZA LCD HDTVs deliver brilliantly sharp imagery and support next-generation home network connectivity. Leveraging unique features such as Resolution+ technology, these new HDTVs enable the consumer to up-convert DivX video files to full 1080p high definition while preserving the outstanding visual quality that Toshiba builds into its consumer electronic products.

DivX technology allows movies to be compressed to a fraction of their original size, while maintaining excellent visual quality. Users can fit over six hours of high-quality DivX video on a 4GB USB. With support for DivX video, consumers can easily playback their DivX content via the USB flash drive directly on the REGZA TV.

"We have worked with DivX in the past for a range of Toshiba products, including portable DVD players and LCD TV/DVD combo to support DivX playback," said Masayuki Ito, Senior Manager of the TV Product Planning Group, TV Division, in Toshiba’s Digital Media Network Company. "Now that our new line of HDTVs is DivX Certified, we can increase the value we add for consumers so they can enjoy high-quality DivX video playback in the living room."

“DivX has long been a checklist feature in leading consumer electronics products, and it’s clear that we’ve evolved to become a must-have feature in HDTVs,” said Kevin Hell, Chief Executive Officer of DivX, Inc. “We are pleased to work with Toshiba to expand our ecosystem with the new series of Toshiba REGZA TVs soon to be available throughout the U.S. and Europe”

Products that bear the DivX Certified logo have undergone a rigorous testing program to ensure a high-quality DivX media experience, including reliable video creation and playback, interoperability with other DivX Certified devices and the visual high-quality users expect from DivX.
