As someone who doesn’t have a cable subscription, I’m always looking for new TV solutions.
Digital entertainment company Rovi announced that its DivX Plus set-top streaming box is now compatible with the latest online video compression standard.
The new technology, called H.265 HEVC (high efficiency video encoding) is a successor to the H.264 AVC system that is today widely used for online video. For consumers, this means faster video streaming with a better quality.
Like a Roku or an Apple TV device, users stream movies and TV shows through the box and to their TV sets, Rovi has partnered with many European distributors, but none in the United States, unfortunately.
