DivXNetworks Inc., the company that created the patent-pending DivX(R) video compression technology, announced that Viewpoint, a division of GE Medical Systems, has licensed DivX video technology to compress and deliver digital video in its leading line of medical imaging equipment.

DivX video is being used in ViewPoint's PIA family of products, a collection of image archiving applications and documentation tools that automate the storage and retrieval of patient records, said the company. As MPEG-4 compatible video compression technology, DivX reportedly enables the creation of DVD-quality video at one-tenth the size of MPEG-2. The company said DivX video is licensed for a number of products and applications, from software editing applications to consumer electronics devices.

According to DivXNetworks, the superior compression and visual quality of DivX allows for high resolution medical images to be easily archived and distributed between hospitals and medical institutions using the ViewPoint PIA family of products. All ViewPoint products can reportedly interface with many ultrasound and endoscopy systems from a diverse number of manufacturers.
