And TC developed a lot of other products, which increased TC`s technologie leadership in the related areas: V-Chip®: A low-cost small sex&crime-TV-protection adapter ($30).
New! TC patented infrared technology room-reflec® enables set top box manufacturers to controll any TV devices (video recorder; TV; sat receiver) with low cost chips. This technology is available by licensing since May 2001. The value of this patent was estimated by KPMG and others up to $ 40 million. (you may compare this to our actual stock market value).
New! TC`s TV classification signals (Sex/Crime/Commercial breaks) are transmitted via internet (JAVA) and by USW/UKW-RDS, Radio Data System. For a low fee, TC allows set top box manufacturers to use the signal for their own application (launched May 2001). For example a STB for interactive-TV can bring a interactive game on tv screen during the break.
