CES 2014: Rovi demos DivX HEVC 4K streaming Rovi will demonstrate some new DivX technologies at CES, including High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC/H.265) streaming in 4K.
DivX plans to host a range of demonstrations of DivX HEVC technology including DivX Live and DivX HEVC UltraHD/4K in collaboration with industry leaders. DivX is also launching updates to DivX 10 and its MainConcept HEVC SDK to enable consumers and professionals to apply the benefits of the latest compression technology to reduce file sizes and create UltraHD/4K content experiences.

DivX 10.1 supports the free creation, playback and streaming of high-quality DivX HEVC video up to 4K. The latest update also adds new pre-defined encoding modes to DivX Converter, a DLNA Controller to DivX Player, and support for offline playback of DivX Plus Streaming content.

During the CES show, DivX will demo live encoding and decoding flow of streaming DivX HEVC UltraHD (4K) video to a set top box. The low power live Ultra HD HEVC encoder is planned to run on the KALRAY MPPA MANYCORE processor and stream to a Bouygues Telecom Bbox set top box service.

HEVC (H.265) promises much better compression rates than AVC/H.264, up to 50 percent in tests, putting it in a great position to drive the switch to 4K streaming.
