Denon again, I just reviewed two of their products and here they are in the news with an announcement that they are coming out with DivX HD certified players in North America.

DivX, a division of Sonic Solutions today announced that Denon, one of the world’s premier manufacturers of home entertainment components, has launched DivX Plus HD Certified Universal players throughout North America. Now available at leading retailers, these stunning new devices will enable the playback of DivX Plus HD video using the MKV container, providing consumers with the ultimate high-quality video experience at HD resolutions up to 1080p.

Key advanced DivX Plus HD features on the Denon player include support for as many as eight subtitle and audio tracks in a single movie file, smooth fast forward and rewind which makes it easy to navigate through a DivX Plus video, and auto chapter points, so users can skip between sections in a video when no chapters have previously been authored.

"The new Denon DivX Plus HD Universal players will redefine how consumers enjoy HD movies and Internet video," said Matt Milne, Executive Vice President and General Manager, DivX. "Our partnership illustrates how DivX Plus HD Certification is rapidly gaining momentum as the premier solution for unparalleled freedom to play full HD content beyond the computer."

Also available in Europe and Asia, Denon’s new line of DBP-1611UD Universal players represents the leading edge in performance and features for the fast growing high-definition format. With DivX technology, this new player will empower consumers to enjoy their personal and Internet video collections in the DivX format directly on their TVs. DivX also makes it simple to load and playback digital videos in 1080p and Hollywood movies in DivX on the Blu-ray player’s USB slot.
