[TS] Intel buys RealNetworks patents and video codec software for $120 million

Intel has agreed to purchase roughly 190 patents, 170 patent applications and next generation video codec software from RealNetworks for $120 million. The buy isn’t expected to have any material impact on RealNetworks’ business as they will still retain certain rights to continue to use the patents in current and future products.

Renee James, Intel senior vice president and general manager of Software and Services Group, describes the patents as “foundational media patents” used to expand Intel’s extensive portfolio of intellectual property.

"As the technology industry evolves towards an experience-centric model, users are demanding more media and graphics capabilities in their computing devices," said James. "We believe this agreement enhances our ability to continue to offer richer experiences and innovative solutions to end users across a wide spectrum of devices, including through Ultrabook devices, smartphones and digital media."
