Technicolor and Sony Corporation have announced a joint patent licensing program for digital television (DTV) and computer display monitor (CDM). Technicolor will be the exclusive licensing agent of the combined portfolio that covers DTV and CDM. The license is offered for the convenience of both existing and new licensees, enabling them to obtain a single license as an alternative to negotiating separate licences.
“By combining these two complementary patent portfolios under a single licensing program, we are providing a leaner and more efficient licensing program for the industry in the field of DTV and CDM,” said Stéphane Rougeot, President Technology Group and Deputy CEO, Technicolor. “This agreement builds on Technicolor’s successful track-record of monetising its portfolio of intellectual property and the strength of its licensing teams.”
