DivX Networks Offers Aid To Independent Filmmakers

DivXNetworks is offering a special program that allows independent filmmakers to license DivX video technology at no cost for certain types of limited commercial use. To promote this program DivX is showing the animated short Killer Bean 2 on the DivX site. Killer Bean 2 was released in 2000 and has been viewed over 1 million times across a number of Websites. The 7-minute short film can now be viewed in full-screen high-resolution DivX format at www.divx.com, along with the trailer for the forthcoming third installment Killer Bean 3. DivX video compression technology enables full-screen, full-length, near-DVD quality digital video at 7 to 10 times greater compression than MPEG-2 files, allowing viewers to download a full-length feature film in 30 minutes or less over a broadband connection.
