Avistar Communications today announced that it has entered into an agreement to license CPI's patent portfolio to Sony. Under the license agreement, CPI granted Sony a license for the field of video-conferencing, covering Sony's video conference apparatus as well as other products including video-enabled PC and PlayStation products.

"Due to their market leadership, CPI is extremely pleased to add Sony as its latest licensee," said Gerald J. Burnett, Chairman and CEO of Avistar. "Additionally, we hope that this licensing agreement will open up possibilities for market collaboration between the two companies in the future."

Collaboration Properties holds a current portfolio of 71 patents for inventions in the primary areas of video and network technology. CPI pursues patents for presence-based interactions, desktop video, recorded and live media at the desktop, multimedia documents, data sharing, and a service-rich video network architecture to support Avistar's product suite and customers. CPI offers licenses to its patent portfolio and Avistar's video-enabling technologies to companies in the video conferencing, rich-media services, public networking, and related industries.

Avistar develops, markets, and supports a video collaboration platform for the enterprise, all powered by the AvistarVOS software. From the desktop, Avistar delivers business-quality video calling, recording, publishing to web and e-mails, video-on-demand, broadcast origination and distribution, and document sharing. Avistar video-enables business processes by integrating visual communications into the daily workflow and connecting communities of users within and across enterprises.
