I’ve Concluded My Projects With Sisvel

Just a quick post to note that I’ve finished my work with Sisvel. It was great meeting and working with the talented folks at Sisvel and learning how patent pools operate from the inside. I greatly appreciate the experience and wish Sisvel and the pool members success as they work to protect and monetize their intellectual property rights. The next few months are going to be interesting for all of us in the codec community.

To avoid the appearance of any conflict of interest, I won’t write about Sisvel or other AV1/VP9 pools that might arise for Streaming Media Magazine, say through the end of 2022. If anything notable happens in the interim, I may cover it on the Streaming Learning Center but will note the existence of the previous consulting agreement.
