"Muppets" sign up for DivX

DivXNetworks, creator of a technology most closely associated with the growing piracy of Hollywood movies on the Web, said it has licensed its MPEG-4 video compression to The Jim Henson Co., which is known for the popular entertainment characters "The Muppets." Under the deal, San Diego-based DivXNetworks said The Jim Henson Co. will use its technology for a promotional campaign commemorating the 25th anniversary of "The Muppet Show" by offering promotional CDs featuring Muppet video clips encoded in DivX format. According to the company's Web site, DivXNetworks' technology can transfer a feature film over a high-speed connection in about 30 minutes. --Gwendolyn Mariano, Special to ZDNet News
