Rovi Introduces HEVC-Ready DivX Video Service

Enables Enhanced, High-Quality Video Experiences Across Multiple Screens

Las Vegas, NV(08 Apr 2013)

Rovi Corporation (Nasdaq:ROVI), driving digital entertainment innovation,
today announced DivX Video Service(TM), an end-to-end video solution
for high-quality multi-screen video delivery that is designed to
integrate with and enhance TV Everywhere and over-the-top entertainment
services. Building upon core DivX(R) video technologies and DRM, as
well as MainConcept(R) professional encoders, DivX Video Service offers
components for managing the entire video distribution chain from
creation and secure delivery to multi-screen playback. This end-to-end
approach enables video services to offer the highest possible level of
consistency, flexibility, and interoperability.

DivX Video Service is available now and supports a range of
entertainment distribution models including digital downloads and
connected-device streaming. Later this year, Rovi plans to update DivX
Video Service to support HEVC/H.265, the latest compression standard
set to enable the broader availability of HD video and delivery of 4K
entertainment.

"DivX Video Service brings together established and proven technologies
to streamline the otherwise complex and costly task of delivering video
entertainment across multiple devices," said Kanaan Jemili, SVP,
Product Management, Rovi Corporation. "With upcoming support for HEVC,
we believe DivX Video Service is not only a solution for high-quality
video distribution today, but also set to drive a new-generation of
advanced entertainment experiences in the future."

DivX Video Service offers a range of content creation tools for
encoding, encrypting and packaging video content including TotalCode
Enterprise. A scalable, server-distributed solution for high-volume
production, TotalCode reduces the number of encodes required to support
multi-screen and will allow DivX Video Service customers to efficiently
convert content catalogs into DivX profiles for advanced adaptive
streaming and high-quality digital downloads. By using defined encode
and decode profiles, DivX Video Service enables content to be created
that is specially designed for optimal playback on DivX Certified
devices.

DivX Video Service features studio-approved DivX DRM, currently
deployed in over 750 million DivX Certified consumer electronics
devices. DivX DRM includes a system of measures that authenticates
content, users and devices in order to safeguard premium content, while
at the same time providing consumers a flexible, multi-screen
entertainment experience.

DivX Video Service includes DivX Plus Streaming(TM), Rovi's advanced
adaptive streaming format that brings features typically associated
with Blu-ray Discs, such as smooth fast forward and rewind, and
subtitles (including closed captioning), to the over-the-top
entertainment experience. In addition, DivX Video Service allows
content to be downloaded and securely transferred between DivX
Certified devices via optical disc, USB drive, SD cards, or using DLNA
streaming.

Rovi is demonstrating DivX Video Service at the NAB Show 2013, taking
place in Las Vegas, NV, April 8-11. Visitors to Rovi's stand (South
Upper Hall #7524) may view live demonstrations, including
next-generation solutions that will enable premium content delivery
using the new video compression standard, High Efficiency Video Coding
(HEVC) or H.265.
