DivX Inc. and JVC, a leader provider of home audio equipment, today announced the DivX Certification™ of a new Blu-ray home theatre system from JVC. The system will be available to consumers across Europe starting in September.

The new DivX Certified® system, the NX-BD3, is JVC’s first entry into the Blu-ray market and is capable of playing back high-quality DivX® video, providing consumers with a comprehensive approach to premium home entertainment. The NX-BD3 is built around the world’s first DLNA CERTIFIED™ (Digital Living Network Alliance) Blu-ray Theater System, which allows consumers to seamlessly play back content over wired or wireless home networks, bringing libraries of video stored on the PC to the living room. NX-BD3 users will be able to enjoy high-quality digital videos burned to CDs or DVDs.

“The demand for DivX video playback in living room consumer electronics encouraged us to consider it as a checklist feature for our next generation home theatre system,” said Hiroshi Nishiumi, Deputy General Manager of Engineering Department, Audio/Video Systems Division, Victor Company of Japan, Limited. “The NX-BD3 provides our customers with a premium entertainment experience and we believe that working with DivX has considerably enhanced this, differentiating us from our competitors.”

“The DivX Certification of JVC’s NX-BD3 significantly contributes to our growing momentum within the Blu-ray market and offers consumers a complete solution for their home entertainment,” said Kevin Hell, Chief Executive Officer, DivX, Inc. “We are dedicated to enabling a high-quality media experience across any device platform and we are delighted to work with JVC in offering a superior solution for their digital video.”

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