Audio Video Technology
The buyer is actively searching for individual patents or patent portfolios related to video and audio delivery and play back on consoles, handsets and a wide range of consumer electronics devices.
Technologies of interest include data compression, video manipulation, watermarking, digital rights management (DRM), video play back, and video transmission. Essentially, the ideal patents would support the delivery of video (and embedded audio) streams to a consumer device, manipulation of the image (for example to change the display format), compression, decompression of the video stream and display on a handset, PDA, set-top-box or other consumer device.
Patents and Intellectual Property Requested:
The interest is primarily in U.S. issued patents with supporting international counterparts. The company is open to consider individual patents or entire portfolios.
Deal Structure, Licensing and Ownership of Intellectual Property:
The typical deal structure would involve an acquisition of the patents. A license back can be negotiated.
