MediaTek joins HEVC Advance

September 24, 2015

HEVC Advance announced that leading semiconductor company MediaTek is the newest member of the patent pool, bringing with it one of the most significant HEVC/H.265 patent portfolios in the world.

MediaTek is a cutting-edge leader in providing SoC technology for mobile and home entertainment hardware and has been at the forefront of the creation and development of the H.265 video compression standard. Below I’ve included a statement by HEVC Advance CEO Pete Moller:

“The addition of MediaTek will substantially enhance the value of the HEVC Advance patent pool for our customers and is a significant step in realizing our goal of bringing HEVC to the global market by providing an efficient and transparent means to acquire necessary and high quality patent rights, at scale, in a fair, reasonable and balanced manner.”
