DIRECTV and Others Offer Terms for DVB-S2

18 января 2007
DIRECTV, the European Space Agency (ESA), and Radiotelevisione Italiana (RAI) – all holders of key DVB-S2 intellectual property rights - together unveiled terms of a comprehensive licensing offering under their combined patent rights for the digital video broadcasting standardized technology.

According to the companies, the offering will set limits on cumulative royalties paid for the licensing of intellectual property rights in order to expedite the adoption of the DVB-S2 standard. DVB-S2 is the second generation DVB system for broadband satellite communications, covering digital TV and HDTV broadcasting, interactive services and professional links by satellite.

The three right-holding groups said they will jointly offer a license under their combined portfolios of intellectual property rights necessary for the implementation of DVB-S2. For consumer applications like set-top box receivers, a license will not exceed 50 cents per product in quantities exceeding 500,000 over the term of the license and not to exceed $1 per product in lower quantities.

Free-to-air and pay-TV broadcasters will not be required to pay a separate service license fee to broadcast to licensed receivers, the groups said. The per product royalties and the arrangements for broadcasters are geared to help launch DVB-S2 technology and follow the commitment of the rights holders to offer licenses on fair, reasonable and non-discriminatory terms.
