MC-IF oversees progress on VVC Pool Fostering
Candidate Facilitators schedule Presentations in late October
BEAVERTON, OR October 20, 2020. Following their meeting on 24 September 2020, the participants in VVC Pool Fostering issued a call to administrators of patent pools to make proposals to facilitate the formation of a single pool covering patents essential to the VVC standard. As a result of that call, VVC Pool Fostering, an activity sponsored by MC-IF, will hold a series of virtual meetings on 26 and 27 October to consider presentations from four competing administrators.
The participants have set a schedule to achieve, before the end of 2020, the selection, by consensus if possible, of an administrator. Their objective is that a single patent pool covers a critical mass of VVC-essential patents.
While four candidate facilitators are scheduled to make presentations, VVC Pool Fostering invites other companies to inform MC-IF promptly if they wish to make a proposal. Contact Carter Eltzroth, at MC-IF, email@example.com.

MEDIA CODING INDUSTRY FORUM
The Media Coding Industry Forum (MC-IF) is an open industry forum with the purpose of furthering the adoption of MPEG Standards, initially focusing on VVC, by establishing them as well-accepted and widely used standards for the benefit of consumers and industry. Any party that supports MC-IF’s goals is invited to join the Forum! MC-IF will work on the non-technical aspects of deployment of media standards, notably including licensing, by facilitating cross-industry discussion. It will also be a hub for information related to implementations, tools, and guidelines for usage of VVC and related standards.
