Comprehensive Resolution Of Patent Issue Relating To Digital Terrestrial Broadcasting

Digital television broadcasting cannot be realized unless both ends exist: the broadcasters which send signals that comply with the ARIB Standards and the television receivers which receive such signals.  Consequently, ULDAGE has long pursued negotiations with the representatives of the broadcasters to materialize the license program for digital broadcasting. The recent execution of license agreements with the broadcasters is groundbreaking in that the broadcasters will now reward the patent holders, namely, the developers of the relevant technologies, by directly bearing an appropriate proportion of royalties for the use of such technologies.

As a result, the broadcasters will be able to further their broadcasting businesses in a stable condition without any concern over the issue of digital terrestrial broadcasting-related patents pooled with ULDAGE. 

About ULDAGE Inc.ULDAGE Inc. was established in July 2006 for the purpose of providing tools for revitalizing business by creating a competitive environment through collaboration and resolution of patent issues in this complex digital age. ULDAGE Inc. undertakes its business by granting licenses for essential patents held by multiple parties in a single package (by the patent pooling method) which offers convenience to both patent holders and business operators.
