Rovi extends Samsung deal

Rovi has renewed and extended to new territories a multi-year patent licence agreement with Samsung for the use of Rovi video discovery patents and technologies across Samsung’s TV and related products.

The new agreement follows a multi-year patent licence agreement that Rovi and Samsung announced earlier this year for the use of Rovi’s patent portfolio across Samsung’s mobile and tablet devices worldwide.

“We have had a long-standing relationship with Samsung, one of the most recognised TV brands across the globe,” said Samir Armaly, executive vice-president, Worldwide intellectual property and licensing, Rovi.

“Our renewed agreement with Samsung reinforces the value of our patent portfolio to industry-leading CE manufacturers focused on driving next-generation entertainment discovery experiences.”
