Currently, Trident possesses a comprehensive portfolio of patents that are foundational to the consumer electronics industry's ability to deliver high-quality video images, as a result of it's recent acquisitions including TV and audio product lines from Micronas, and the set-top box and TV product lines from NXP B.V. Trident also plans to create a limited number of licenses available to customers and competitors to allow them to incorporate the MEMC technology originally pioneered and patented by Philips for use in their consumer video devices. The patented MEMC technology provides judder-free and blur-free display of high definition and 3D images for high-quality televisions and other video-enabled LCD display devices, and has now become a must-have standard approach to picture quality.

Trident's chief technology officer, Duane Northcutt says, "Our goal is to establish license agreements with major players in the industry and enable those companies to incorporate these MEMC capabilities into their products in the future."

The company has not disclosed financial details of its licensing program, as yet.
