SanDisk Agrees to Support DivX

divx logo SanDisk Agrees to Support DivX

A licensing agreement between the two companies allows DivX technology to be implemented on SanDisk’s video-enabled Sansa products. Support for the format was already listed for the upcoming Sansa View, but SanDisk also intends to provide their future video products with seamless access to the DivX Stage6 video website. Giving the consumer an open choice without being confined to a single company’s service has always been a priority for SanDisk, so optional use of an interoperable software or service is a likely outcome of the partnership.

SanDisk only expects to announce later this year when DivX support will become available and which products will be influenced by the agreement.
