Sorenson Media In Chip Licensing Deal

San Diego-based Sorenson Media, which develops video encoding and decoding software, said this morning that it has licensed its technology to chip provider Sharp Corporation. Sorenson, which is led by Peter Csathy, said it has licensed its technology for use in a system-on-a-chip that will be used for mobile devices. Financial details of the licensing deal were not announced by the company. Sorenson said it provides a software developers kit (SDK) which helps developers to integrate its decoder into a wide array of programmable chipsets and semiconductors.
