DivX, Inc. and Pentax Imaging Company today announced the DivX certification of the Pentax Optio S10, the innovative imaging company’s seventh DivX certified digital camera. The Optio S10 records video natively in the high-quality DivX format, enabling users to playback their videos on a wide-variety of DivX Certified devices from major manufacturers, including DVD players, portable devices and more.
The Optio S10 makes it easy for users to create and share their own high-quality media. With the push of a button on a palm-sized digital camera, users can instantly record high-quality DivX video and easily upload their files to Stage6.com, a popular online video community powered by DivX technology. Due to the efficiency of the DivX format, the Optio S10 also enables consumers to record up to an hour of high-quality DivX video on a 1Gb media card.
“Consumers have consistently demonstrated that the ability to capture high-quality video is an important feature and partnering with DivX has given us the opportunity to offer that in a unique way,” said John Carlson, Product Manager at Pentax Imaging Company. “We are excited to continue our work with the DivX team in releasing our seventh DivX Certified digital camera.”
“Pentax is leading the way in offering DivX Certified digital still cameras to users,” said Kevin Hell, Acting CEO of DivX, Inc. “The Optio S10 will enable consumers to easily capture high-quality video that can be played back on any of the over 100 million DivX Certified devices on the market today.”
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 and the visual quality users expect from DivX. The DivX Certified Pentax Optio S10 digital camera will be available in September at retail stores worldwide. Suggested retail price is $249.95 (around £125).
