Honeywell has granted a license authorizing Sanyo Electric Co. Ltd and Sanyo Epson Imaging Devices Corp. (SEID) to use a patented Honeywell technology relating to LCD products. The patented technology is said to increase the brightness of images and reduces the appearance of certain interference effects on LCDs.

LCDs are widely used in products such as desktop PC monitors, notebook computers, cell phones, PDAs, portable DVD players, portable LCD TVs, video game systems and digital still cameras.

The Sanyo agreement provides a license to use technology protected by U.S. patent number 5,280,371 -- the 371 patent. Honeywell licensed Sharp Corporation under the '371 patent earlier this year and LG.Philips LCD, NEC LCD, Chi Mei Optoelectronics and Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd. in prior years.
