Traxon Technologies / e:cue strengthens its IP Portfolio joining OSRAM and Philips cross license program
Hong Kong, 10 May, 2009 – Traxon Technologies – an OSRAM Company - benefits from the cross license agreement concluded by OSRAM and Philips for LED-based technology used in luminaires. The agreement involves the mutual licensing of patents for all inorganic and organic LEDs and system components. All Traxon fixtures include key components which are individually designed by Traxon / e:cue or OSRAM Group companies and thus are protected by the cross license agreement. Traxon Technologies can guarantee its customers to be safe of any license fees claimed by Royal Philips Electronics N.V. when using Traxon / e:cue fixtures for projects or selling to customers. The special right relates not only to patents held by Philips but also to patents held by Color Kinetics and TIR Systems which were acquired by Philips. In general, Traxon’s customers (Retailer, Installer and End-user) who buy Traxon systems and luminaires incorporating exclusively Traxon / OSRAM drivers, controls and modules fixtures, profit of a multitude of benefits: • Royalty free license under all patents of the Philips SSL program within the field of architectural lighting, theatrical lighting, general lighting, display and video applications (except LCD) • Full design freedom without patent restrictions • No need for critical product checking in regard to patent infringements • Riskless use of Traxon / e:cue / OSRAM control applications, lighting fixtures and systems components • Avoidance of possible conflicts with Philips SSL Program The cross license program with OSRAM enables Traxon to even better serve the demands of the Solid State Lighting market, strengthening its position as global LED system provider.
