Sisvel to License TDVision Systems IP Portfolio for MVC and Stereoscopic 3D Technologies Worldwide

Irvine, CA (USA), June 21, 2010

TDVision Systems and Sisvel announced today that TDVision has granted Sisvel the exclusive rights to manage TDVision’s diverse intellectual property portfolio of stereoscopic technology patents. This portfolio includes key patents related to current digital video standards and video gaming technologies, particularly in the North American marketplace.

TDVision's technology promises to lead the way toward widespread adoption of 3D to the Home, including Blu-ray(TM), Satellite, Cable, IPTV, Mobile, Videogames, and over-the-air signals.

“In 2003 we filed our IP for world-wide protection and the market has since evolved and adopted our 2D+Delta format within various standards and industry specifications, ” said Manuel R. Gutierrez Novelo, CEO of TDVision Systems. “Sisvel has decades of licensing experience and a world-wide organization that will ensure that companies across the stereoscopic 3D Ecosystem will be able to license and use our IP more easily.”

TDVision's patents include the award winning and standardized 2D+Delta system. The 2D+Delta format is also known as TDVCodec and is a key part of the “Multiview Video Coding” (MVC) codec (ISO-MPEG-14496-10:2008, Amendment 1), an extension to the ITU-T H. 264 Advanced Video Coding (AVC) recently adopted by the Blu-ray(TM) Disc Association as the Blu-ray 3D(TM) specification.

“Working with TDVision Systems, we look forward to building a licensing program that reflects their substantial investment as early developers of 3D technology” said General Richard Neal, President of Sisvel US. “In addition to the patents themselves, our 3D Licensing Program will provide straightforward access to TDVision’s advanced know-how and implementation experience.”

Terms and conditions of Sisvel’s new 3D Licensing Program with TDVision will be made available in the near future.
