Ericsson and Philips collaborate with Bluetooth

6/11/2002 - Ericsson Technology Licensing today announced a strategic alliance and co-operation with Philips for the accelerated delivery of new Bluetooth products in the audio/video domain. The co-operation will see the companies pool their expertise in Bluetooth (Ericsson) and audio/video (Philips), to create Bluetooth audio/video solutions that will drive the Bluetooth market forward with a range of advanced applications. A dedicated team incorporating research, design and engineering capabilities from both Ericsson and Philips will exchange information, streamline creation processes and align product roadmaps. The first joint development area will focus on Bluetooth for audio/video applications to enable the wire-free streaming of music and film in the home and in the car. Customers of both companies will benefit from this alliance. As the Bluetooth audio/video solutions from this co-operation come to market, Ericsson will realize its capital from licensing enhanced Bluetooth intellectual property solutions to its customers. Philips will obtain its business benefits with improved silicon solutions and shorter time to market on the best-in-class components used in Bluetooth products for audio/video and other applications.
