DivX Inc. will use Sonic Solutions digital media software program AuthorScript for PC-based video creation and playback.
Consumers can burn DivX content to CD or DVD and use it in DivX players. There are tens of millions of these players worldwide, according to the companies.
Sonic's software allows DivX to improve the digital media experience, said Kevin Hell, chief DivX officer, partners and licensing at DivX Inc.
“AuthorScript lived up to its strong reputation by enabling the easy integration of powerful burning capabilities and ensuring the highest level of compatibility with the extensive range of DivX certified set-top and portable DVD players.”
DivX discs created with Sonic's AuthorScript — which is available at www.divx.com — are compatible with “virtually all of the world's more than one billion DVD players,” according to the company.
