Rovi renews and expands licensing agreement with Samsung

Rovi has renewed a multi-year patent license agreement with Samsung for the use of Rovi video discovery patents and technologies across Samsung’s TV and related products. The renewal adds new regions to encompass Samsung TV products sold on a worldwide basis.

“We have had a long-standing relationship with Samsung, one of the most recognized TV brands across the globe,” says Samir Armaly, executive vice president, Worldwide Intellectual Property and Licensing, Rovi. “Our renewed agreement with Samsung reinforces the value of our patent portfolio to industry-leading CE manufacturers focused on driving next-generation entertainment discovery experiences.”

Rovi and Samsung have a rich history of working together to bring consumers a better entertainment experience. Samsung deploys Rovi entertainment metadata – a renowned and extensive entertainment database of editorial content, program schedules, and images pertaining to TV programs, movies, and celebrities in its Smart TVs and tablets. The newest agreement comes on the heels of the multi-year patent license agreement that Rovi and Samsung announced earlier this year for the use of Rovi’s patent portfolio across Samsung’s mobile and tablet devices worldwide.
