MicroVision, Inc. (NASDAQ: MVIS), a leader in innovative ultra-miniature projection display technology, today announced that it has been selected as a 2012-2013 constituent of the Ocean Tomo 300 Patent Index, the industry’s first index based on the value of intellectual property (IP). This is the second consecutive year that MicroVision has been included in the Ocean Tomo 300 Patent Index.

MicroVision’s extensive and highly-rated patent portfolio is the largest, broadest and earliest filed laser pico projection and display portfolio and includes applications such as automotive head-up display, range finding, portable media devices and image capture applications. The company’s patent portfolio consists of more than 500 issued, pending and licensed patents worldwide.

The Ocean Tomo 300 Patent Index is priced and published by the NYSE Euronext (NYSE Euronext: OTPAT) and represents a diversified portfolio of 300 companies that own the most valuable patents relative to their book value. Other technology companies featured on the list include Microsoft Corp., Intel Corp., Qualcomm, Nvidia and MicroVision partner, Intersil Corp.

“In the increasingly competitive display industry, an expansive IP portfolio helps companies differentiate,” said Jérémie Bouchaud, Senior Principal Analyst, MEMS and Sensors at IHS. “When companies like MicroVision implement a licensing model, IP leadership and recognition ensure current and future OEMs and ODMs are receiving best in class technology.”
