Default Macrovision Guides Vizio HDTVs - Deal Allows Vizio to IncorporateIPG Into Future Products

Macrovision Solutions signed a multiyear patent-licensing agreement with HDTV
manufacturer Vizio for Macrovision's interactive program guide technologies.

The deal gives Vizio the option to incorporate Macrovision's IPG technologies
into future products to provide on-screen navigation, sorting and scheduling
of TV programming. Macrovision acquired Gemstar-TV Guide International last year.

"We recognize that consumers today have an unprecedented amount of content to
choose from across a growing number of digital channels and sources," Vizio
vice president of products Matthew McRae. "Simplifying that user experience is
a critical part of our design philosophy, as we continue to develop innovative
new ways of bringing value to the Vizio customer."

Macrovision's other IPG licensees include Sony, Samsung, Panasonic, Sharp,
Hitachi, Motorola and Scientific Atlanta (now Cisco Systems).
