MPEG LA Releases MPEG-DASH Patent Portfolio License
MPEG LA, LLC announced today the availability of the MPEG-DASH (“DASH”) Patent Portfolio License.

The DASH standard is used in products such as mobile phones, tablets, televisions, set-top boxes, computers, digital/personal video recorders, optical disc players or recorders, game consoles and software.
Current DASH essential patent holders include Amotech Co., Ltd.; AVerMedia Technologies, Inc.; CableTelevision Laboratories, Inc.; Electronics and Telecommunications Research Institute; Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft zur Foerderung der angewandten Forschung e.V.; Hitachi Maxell, Ltd.; Nippon Telegraph and Telephone Corporation; Siemens AG; SK Planet Co., Ltd.; and The Trustees of Columbia University in the City of New York.
“As DASH implementation kicks into high gear throughout the world, MPEG LA is pleased to offer to the marketplace a convenient, fair and efficient licensing alternative that offers everyone reasonable access to this valuable breakthrough technology on the same terms under a single license,” said MPEG LA President and CEO Larry Horn.
“We commend the hard work and cooperation of the patent holders that have agreed to offer a joint license for the benefit of the DASH marketplace,” said Bill Geary, Vice President of Business Development at MPEG LA, “and we welcome other DASH essential patent owners to join them.”
