TeleFone TV licenses Viseon's videophone tech
Videophone maker Viseon Inc. has inked a non-exclusive deal to license its entire U.S. patent portfolio to TeleFone TV Network Inc.
Under the deal, TeleFone TV will sell and distribute videophone services and pay an 8 percent royalty to Viseon on the manufacturing cost of licensed products.
Videophone partnerships are suddenly becoming en vogue. Earlier this month, Motorola Broadband signed an exclusive deal to distribute the WorldGate Communications "Ojo" broadband videophone.
