Multi-Codec Bridging Agreement ("MCBA")

Overview

Access Advance is pleased to announce the Multi-Codec Bridging Agreement.  Licensees in both the HEVC Advance Patent Pool and VVC Advance Patent Pool are eligible.  The MCBA is not a license, it is an “administrative” Agreement permitting Licensees in both patent pools to pay a substantially reduced royalty rate for products that include both HEVC and VVC codecs, as compared to the royalty rates set forth under the separate HEVC Advance and VVC Advance Licenses.
