Via LA's VC-1 Patent Portfolio License provides access to essential patent rights for the VC-1 digital video coding standard (SMPTE 421M-2006) used in set-top boxes, media player and other personal computer software, mobile devices including telephones, Blu-ray DiscTM players and recorders, Blu-ray video optical discs, game machines, personal media player devices, still and video cameras, subscription and pay-per view or title video services and other products. To align with the real-world flow of VC-1 commerce, reasonable royalties are apportioned throughout the VC-1 value chain. The License employs annual limitations to provide cost predictability, threshold levels below which certain royalties will not be charged in order to encourage early-stage adopters and minimize the impact on lower volume users or demo products, and licensing options that require no royalty reports.
