Samsung Omnia gets DivX certification

Samsung has announced the the Samsung Omnia will be the first Windows Mobile device with DivX certification, and only the 4th device by Samsung so certified.

DivX is allows consumers to enjoy a high-quality video experience across any kind of device and enables a high-quality media experience in which video content can be moved from the PC to the mobile environment and beyond. The Omnia features TV-Out, to play back content from the phone directly on the television screen. The Omnia also has DLNA certification, which allows streaming to similarly certified devices.

“By including DivX video decoding in the Omnia, we’re giving our users the high-quality technology they would expect from a mobile phone with an advanced feature set,” said Younghee Lee, Vice President of Marketing for Samsung’s Telecommunication Business.

He added, “Samsung has recognised that DivX allows users to do more with their media, and we’re pleased that Samsung has continued to expand DivX certification to their mobile devices.”

DivX and Samsung recently entered into a multi-year agreement to include DivX encode and decode capabilities into Samsung’s future mobile phones.

The company is planning to launch this DivX Certified Omnia in South East Asia by mid-June and will be available in European countries thereafter.
