Press Release

On our own behalf

05.05.2022

We have been asked several times in the last few days if we are the company "AVT" that wants to enforce patent claims that could be infringed by an implementation of some parts of the SMPTE ST2022 standard.

Bob Ruhl of the Video Service Forum (VSF) has written:

The VSF is aware that some members have received letters from company called AVT regarding certain patent claims it owns that it asserts are necessarily infringed by any implementation of some portions of the SMPTE ST 2022 standard, a standard that is normatively referenced in a number of VSF Technical Recommendations.  The VSF has not subjected these claims to legal review, and takes no position regarding their validity, or whether they would in fact be necessarily infringed by a compliant implementation of the SMPTE standard referenced in our Technical Recommendation.

We would like to point out that our company AVT Audio Video Technologies GmbH from Nuremberg is in no way involved in these patent claims. Rather, it is the company AVT Audio Visual Telecommunications Corporation from Canada (www.avt.net).
