Novatek Adopts DivX Plus Streaming

New Processors for Flat-Panel TVs to Support Rovi's Advanced Adaptive
Streaming Format and the Delivery of a Consistent, High-Quality Digital
Streaming Media Experience

LAS VEGAS, Jan. 9, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- (CONSUMER ELECTRONICS SHOW 2013)
-- Rovi Corporation (Nasdaq:ROVI), driving digital entertainment innovation,
today announced that Novatek Microelectronics Corp. is set to integrate DivX
Plus Streaming^® technology into its upcoming SOC product designed to deliver
an optimal balance of features and performance for the high-volume DTV
segment. The inclusion of DivX Plus Streaming will enable CE manufacturers to
rapidly deploy devices compatible with a range of video services from
retailers, operators, and content owners and deliver a more advanced streaming
experience to consumers.

The adaptive streaming solution, DivX Plus Streaming, not only dynamically
adjusts streams to help deliver maximum visual quality based on available
bandwidth, but also offers an advanced feature set with support for 1080p,
subtitles, multiple language tracks, and trick-play functions such as smooth
fast forward and rewind. DivX Plus Streaming expands the value of the already
popular DivX Plus^® HD Certification program, which brings these same advanced
multimedia features to 'download to own' video content.

"Our advanced multimedia solutions provide designers with an abundant array of
features for a wide range of applications in Set Top Boxes and DTVs," said J.
H. Chang, Senior Vice President of Novatek. "DivX Plus Streaming enhances this
feature set and will help our customers deliver an optimized and trouble-free
over-the-top entertainment experience."

"Integration into Novatek SOCs represents another major milestone for DivX
Plus Streaming and will result in broader access to richer entertainment
experiences for more consumers," said Simon Adams, SVP, Sales and Marketing,
Consumer Electronics, Rovi Corporation. "DivX Plus Streaming is part of a
broader range of solutions we are developing to advance the entertainment
experience for consumers and provide our customers with the solutions they
need to drive product satisfaction and over-the-top service usage."

To develop DivX Plus Streaming, Rovi built upon core DivX^® technologies
recognized by millions of consumers around the world for delivering great
video performance, visual quality, and multi-screen interoperability. DivX
Plus Streaming Certification rigorously tests and validates interoperability
between entertainment services and devices to ensure an optimal consumer
experience. DivX Plus Streaming expands the value of the popular DivX and DivX
Plus^® HD Certification programs, which first brought advanced multimedia
features to 'download to own' video content and have resulted in the shipment
of more than 750 million consumer electronics devices by top-tier
manufacturers.
