Innovation from the Source

HEVC exists today as a result of decades of capital investment in talent, trials and breakthroughs. Velos Media brings together leading global innovators, including Ericsson, Panasonic, Qualcomm, Sharp, and Sony, that cumulatively have made the most significant contributions to HEVC technology, and offers their essential patented technology for license to device makers and others that are delivering the HEVC experience.

The Velos Media Advantage

Velos Media offers access to the entire standard-essential HEVC patent portfolios of each of our members, with one license. This straightforward process means that companies delivering the HEVC experience can obtain the necessary patent licensing rights from multiple leading patent owners in one place, rather than negotiating separate licenses with each company, in turn minimizing transaction costs, enhancing access to critical innovations and expanding the options for consumers to enjoy rich video experiences.

The Velos Media Advantage

In 1676, Isaac Newton said,

“If I have seen further, it is by standing on the shoulders of giants.”

Innovation Matters

The world we live in is only made possible by the contributions of those before us. Those pushing the limits and testing boundaries to invent the next great thing, the next new normal, that we can’t do without. The innovations that bring us together and make life better are not developed by chance. They are often the result of billions of dollars and countless hours spent on research and development to create the breakthrough that propels us to the next invention.

H.265 uses smarter, more flexible compression technology to stream videos faster or with less bandwidth— working hard where it’s needed to achieve fine detail, and less on areas where detail is limited.

Supporting the Ecosystem

Ecosystem leaders like Ericsson, Panasonic, Qualcomm, Sharp, and Sony make the results of their large investments – their ideas and patented technology – available to companies that will use them in their products, for a licensing fee. This helps ensure that companies creating new technology are compensated for their investment, companies inventing new products can access the technology rights needed to support their devices, and consumers can benefit from a world of new innovations.
