Only ready to use products and software are covered by SISVEL’s H.264 SVC licensing program. Integrated circuits, chip sets, sub-assemblies, and in general any non-finished products are excluded from such a license.
For products that have no limitation in number of users, the royalty rate is Euro 0.50 per Input/Output interface through which H.264 SVC signals or files are transferred. For products that have a limitation on the number of users, the royalty rate is the maximum of either Euro 0.50 per Input/Output interface through which H.264 SVC signals or files are transferred or Euro 0.50 per user.
For software, the royalty rate is Euro 0.50 per user. If it is established that the software is to be operated by a licensed product, any amount already paid by said product will be deducted from the royalty rate due for the software. For products and software that are intended solely for designing other devices, or solely for use in compliance testing, analyzing video streams or in laboratories, the rate is 0.25% of the average per unit selling price of the product or software.
