DivX Encodes On LSI Silicon

San Diego-based DivX Networks announced this morning that its video compression technology has been incorporated into LSI Logic's new DMN-8603 DVD recorder processor. The new LSI chip provides the capability to encode DivX format onto DVDs, enabling up to 12 hours of video on a single DVD disc. The new chip is targeted at OEMs develping DVD recorders. DivX networks licenses a video encoder which provides a much higher level of compression than MPEG-2, targeted at CD or broadband applications.
