Sisvel Announces the Launch of the DVB-S2X Patent Pool

Del

At IBC today, Sisvel announced the launch of a new joint patent licensing program, or patent pool, offering a license under patents essential to the DVB-S2X standard, an extension of the DVB-S2 specification that provides additional technologies and features. The program has been launched with a portfolio of essential patents owned or controlled by Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft zur Förderung der angewandten Forschung e. V., Hughes Network Systems, LLC, Newtec Cy N.V., RAI - Radiotelevisione Italiana S.p.A., The European Space Agency and WORK Microwave GmbH.

Further information about the terms and conditions of Sisvel’s DVB-S2X licenses is available at http://www.sisvel.com/licensing-programs/digital-video-display-technology/dvb-S2X/license-terms or from Sisvel upon request by companies currently requiring a license.

You may contact Sisvel at the following e-mail address: DVB-S2X@sisvel.com.

The portfolio license makes essential DVB-S2X patents more easily accessible and ensures that all users of this technology will benefit from the transparency and the convenience of the license terms available under this new program.

Davide Ferri, CEO of Sisvel Spa and Sisvel Technology, said “Sisvel and the patent owners have made a consistent effort to launch the DVB-S2X licensing program at this early stage of the technology adoption, thus providing the market with certainty and predictability for the cost of a license. We are therefore very proud of this remarkable achievement”.

Mattia Fogliacco, CEO of the Sisvel Group, said “The EU Commission, in its communication of the 29th of November 2017 setting out the approach to Standard Essential Patents, clearly expressed its support for patent pools and licensing platforms, as being able to ‘address many of the SEP licensing challenges by offering better scrutiny on essentiality, more clarity on aggregate licensing fees and one-stop- shop solutions’. Sisvel is fully aligned with this statement and is confident that this new program will promote a rapid adoption of the DVB-S2X standard”.

The joint DVB-S2X licensing program remains open to additional patent owners, and Sisvel invites all parties with patents believed to be essential to the DVB-S2X standard to contact Sisvel and submit those patent(s) for an evaluation of essentiality by the program’s designated, independent evaluator.
