Intellectual Property

Hillcrest Labs has a dominant, worldwide Intellectual property portfolio that includes over 80 granted and 200 filed patents exclusively owned by Hillcrest Labs. This patent portfolio includes a number of blocking patents in key areas that are essential to the operation of a motion pointing device. In addition to these essential and exclusive patents, we also possess a one-way license of a portfolio of motion patents from Technicolor, S.A., providing us with a license to use these patents with our products, providing our customers with additional protection. We have not enabled any motion technology companies with a license to our exclusive portfolio which represents the deepest coverage of any known company in the motion control and pointing category.

We leverage this intellectual property to create exceptional products and to provide value added features to our customers through our software, hardware and white label products.
