High Definition DivX 6 – fits on a standard DVD
Why wait for HD-DVD? Well, that’s a really tricky question. Jordan Greenhall, the CEO of DivX Networks, recently demonstrated a true high resolution movie in 1080i resolution, that played on a compatible DVD player, but on standard 4.7GB DVD-R media. The new DivX 6 version will be able to encode high definition video at 4Mbps, instead of 19Mbps for MPEG-2 HD streams.
“Why not do the very best we can do as far as today’s technology?” – Jordan Greenhall to NY Times.
