DivX and LG Electronics have announced the launch of its DivX-certified Time Machine TV Series both in Plasma and LCD models.

Joining over 90 million DivX Certified devices in offering superior visual quality and support for the full range of DivX video content, LG’s DivX-certified Time Machine TV Series is now available in Europe, China and throughout the Asia-Pacific region.
LG’s DivX-certified Time Machine TV Series includes two models that will be launched in South Africa 42LB5RT LCD and the 42PB4RT plasma. LG’s DivX-certified Time Machine TVs deliver remarkable image and audio quality for digital content using much less bandwidth than regular analog devices.
The series features a built-in 80Gb hard disc drive for Time Shift function and recording, USB 2.0 port for backing up recorded content and MP3, JPEG and DivX playback capability. The Time Machine TV Series also boasts a simultaneous watch-and-record function.
“We are very excited about the launch of the DivX-certified Time Machine TV Series,” says HB Lim, product manager at LG Electronics South Africa. “At LG, we’re very committed to giving users what they want. The ability to transfer media seamlessly from the PC to the living room while preserving the kind of high-quality, cinematic experience that consumers demand is a key product differentiator among digital televisions.”
“The DivX Certified LG 42LB5RT digital television is an example of our efforts to expand the number of ways digital media is consumed in the living room, allowing consumers to access media when, where and how they want to," says Kevin Hell, President of DivX. “DivX is building a common media language designed for true interoperability across devices and platforms, and innovative products like the LG digital television are an important piece of that ecosystem.”
As digital media comes of age, more consumers are demanding greater connectivity and better solutions for merging the PC and living room experiences. DivX makes this possible—powering widespread access to content through a range of products and platforms–from DivX Certified devices like digital televisions, DVD players, portable media players and mobile phones to Internet distribution platforms such as DivX Stage6.
Products that bear the DivX Certified logo have undergone a rigorous testing program to ensure a high-quality DivX media experience, including reliable video creation and playback, interoperability with other DivX Certified devices. Over 90-million DivX Certified devices have been shipped from major manufacturers around the world.
