TiVo has announced a renewed patent and licence partnership with Panasonic.
The multi-year extension gives Panasonic access to TiVo’s patents for its products in the Japanese market including G-Guide, G-Guide HTML and G-Guide xD across its TV, DVR and set-top box products.
Panasonic will also deploy the newly released OTT-Link functionality that enables consumers to deep link directly into content from within G-Guide.
Matt Milne, chief revenue officer at TiVo parent company Xperi, said: “Our continued collaboration with Panasonic to build and deploy innovative content discovery solutions is strengthened with this new agreement.
“Panasonic’s commitment to roll out the new OTT-Link functionality in G-Guide will enable them to provide their consumers in Japan with continued access to the most advanced functions of G-Guide, Japan’s leading content discovery solution to find, watch and enjoy video content across broadcast and OTT television.”
