LCD technologies were initially developed for the consumer electronic market, but the latest most advanced technologies have been developed for other applications, in particular for space and military applications given their lightweight characteristics. Since Technicolor and Thales have both been pioneers in this field as a result of their long standing corporate relationship, this acquisition is a natural fit that will enrich Technicolor's already impressive patent portfolio related to these technologies that are now deployed in mass market devices.

The assets cover many technologies related to displays, including driving methods and circuits, LCD backlight, panel structure and touch screen, which are or will be deployed in a broad range of devices, in particular next-generation mobile devices, Digital TVs and Color Display Monitors. The acquisition of these pioneering assets, aligned with the Group's strategy, will provide Technicolor with added value to existing and future licensing programs, especially in the Digital TV, smartphone and tablet spaces.
