Sonic Solutions was a digital media software provider which developed popular applications and technologies for digital entertainment. Its leading brands included Roxio (which it acquired in 2004) and DivX (which it acquired in 2010) for consumers, and it offered software for CE manufacturers and content producers, as well.

In December 2010, Sonic Solutions announced that it would be acquired by Rovi Corporation. In February 2011, Rovi completed the acquisition and subsequently began to incorporate the Sonic brand into the Rovi product line.
