HEVC Advance Licensors
The founding licensors of HEVC Advance played significant roles in the development of the HEVC/H.265 standard. They contributed technologies that differentiate HEVC from prior-generation video compression standards. Our founding licensors contributed new and fundamental design/features of the HEVC/H.265 standard.
Since our founding, other licensors have joined HEVC Advance. The current list of HEVC Advance licensors is available below and is updated as new licensors with essential patents join our pool.
HEVC Advance Patent List
Although an HEVC Advance Patent Portfolio License covers all of the Licensors’ essential HEVC/H.265 Patents, each Licensor has submitted patents for rigorous and independent evaluation for essentiality to the standard. The list of patents determined to be essential can be downloaded below. The evaluation of patents is ongoing, and the list will be updated as new patents are determined to be essential.
Please Note: This is an interim patent list for the first quarter of 2020. HEVC Advance added a number of licensors at the close of 2019. This resulted in a significant influx of patent submissions at the end of the year. Our evaluators are working diligently to review them carefully. Because of the high volume, however, additional time has been needed to do so. In fact, hundreds of submissions are still in queue for review. HEVC Advance will update this list periodically in the future as patents continue to be added to the list. Your patience is appreciated.
