TiVo Feb. 2 announced a multiyear extension of agreements for its patent portfolios with Sony Corp. Since creating the digital video recorder decades ago, TiVo has created myriad software and technology patents enabling media companies to record, store, find, sell and rent video entertainment.
TiVo’s innovations make it easier for viewers to find and watch content across a multitude of platforms, including television (i.e. Sony Bravia), laptops, desktop PCs and portable devices.
“We are proud to extend our licensing agreements with Sony,” Samir Armaly, president of intellectual property at Xperi Corp., corporate parent of TiVo, said in a statement. “Sony is a creative entertainment company with a solid foundation of technology, and we are excited to build on our long-standing relationship with them.”
