Sisvel announces the launch of its Video Coding Licensing Platform

LUXEMBOURG — Sisvel International S.A. announced today the launch of its Video Coding Licensing Platform, a new patent licensing platform including two new, separately offered, joint patent licensing programs, or patent pools, offering licenses under patents relevant to the VP9 and AV1 specifications respectively.

The Video Coding Licensing Platform is launched with portfolios of patents owned or controlled by a variety of innovative companies including JVCKENWOOD, NTT, Orange, Philips and Toshiba IPR Solutions.

Following on Sisvel’s success with fair and innovative licensing programs, the joint licenses address market needs for efficient licensing, make VP9 and AV1 patents more easily accessible, notwithstanding the fact that the specifications have not been adopted by any standard setting organization or subject to any IPR policies set by such organizations. The Video Coding Licensing Platform also ensures that all users of these technologies will benefit from the transparency and the convenience of the license terms available under these new programs.

The Video Coding Licensing Platform, containing the two VP9 and AV1 licensing programs, remains open to additional patent owners with relevant patents that are available to widely license to users of these technologies and thus add to the efficiency of the Platform. Sisvel thus invites all parties with patents believed to be relevant to the VP9 or AV1 specifications to contact Sisvel and submit those patent(s) for an evaluation by the program’s designated, independent evaluators.
