Elevating Consumer Experiences Through Next-gen Technologies On Any Device – At Home Or On-The-Go

Technicolor invents and advances how people see entertainment and experience content.  Whether it is for TVs, computers, all-in-ones, laptops, tablets, or smartphones, Technicolor elevates the experience of today’s consumer electronic devices, just as we’ve been doing for the Hollywood screen for the past 100 years.  From the introduction of color in Hollywood to the development of cutting-edge digital image technologies, Technicolor creates compelling new image experiences that ensure consumers enjoy the most immersive entertainment experiences, regardless of place, device, time, or context.

More than 250 researchers at Technicolor’s three world class Research & Innovation Centers – in Rennes, France; Hanover, Germany; and Los Altos, California – develop the science and technology that is transforming how people enjoy their media, entertainment, and digital experiences.  These scientists, engineers and technicians continue to build Technicolor’s extraordinary portfolio of the most advanced technologies and solutions.  The fruit of their imagination and expertise offers exciting opportunities for consumer electronics as well as for the professional entertainment and communications industries.

Tailoring Technologies, Patents and Licenses to Strong Partner Relationships

The Technicolor approach to technology licensing is based on establishing strong partnerships with customers.  Rather than providing only use of a particular patent, Technicolor works alongside customers to ensure successful implementation of the technology in question.  This implementation can take a variety of forms, from software integration, to digital libraries, to integrated software/hardware packages.

Technicolor partners with leading OEMs to deliver emerging and next-generation technologies that augment and enhance products, providing manufacturers with features that differentiate them from their competitors.  Technicolor offers video enhancement technologies and solutions to companies like Alcatel Onetouch, Asus, HP, Intel, and Toshiba, and many more. 

Technicolor delivers differentiating features so that OEMs can help customers see:

  • Colors and images like never before, and as intended, on computers, all-in-ones, laptops, tablets, and smartphones
  • Their online purchases with the knowledge that what they see is what they get, in exactly the color of they saw
  • HD & UHD content that is accurately upscaled so that the color and image is stunning on any device, whether in 1080P HD or near native 4K

A Clear Branding Program:

For its portfolio of next-generation image technologies, Technicolor has developed a branding program that allows partners to clearly communicate to consumers by leveraging Technicolor’s Hollywood heritage and reputation for image excellence.
