Access Advance, MPEG LA named to form VVC licensing pools

Friday 29 January 2021 | 08:41 CET | News
The Media Coding Industry Forum (MC-IF) announced that its Versatile Video Coding (VVC) Pool Fostering activity identified Access Advance and MPEG LA as possible administrators to take forward the work of pool formation covering patents essential to the VVC standard. The two administrators found strong support within the MC-IF sponsored activity (but neither achieved a consensus among the 49 participant companies according to the process adopted by VVC Pool Fostering). With this action, VVC Pool Fostering completes the work it launched in September 2020.
