SanDisk announced a licensing agreement which will allow it to add support for DivX movies in its Sansa line of video-enabled products.
“This partnership aims to allow our customers to take full advantage of innovative video features and content found only through DivX,” said Daniel Schreiber, Senior Vice-President and General Manager for SanDisk’s Audio Video Business Unit.

“Our agreement with SanDisk brings together pioneering consumer electronics with DivX’s expertise for digital video,” said Kevin Hell, President of DivX, Inc. “Adding DivX to the Sansa product line’s arsenal of features will provide cutting-edge media capabilities to consumers, and strengthen the common media language we’re building through the open DivX ecosystem.”
SanDisk expects to announce plans later this year for DivX support in its product lines.
