Tri-Vision International Ltd./Ltee today announced that it has licensed United States Patent number 5,828,402 (the '402 Patent) to Sanyo TV International Corporation of the United States. The license is valid through the expiration of the patent in 2016. Sanyo Electric Company Limited of Japan licensed Tri-Vision's Canadian V-chip Patent in September of 2002.

Sanyo is the 40th U.S. Patent license signed in the company’s licensing program. The company's licensing team has contacted all the major brands and is in varying stages of negotiations with them.

Companies who have been licensed to the U.S. and/or Canadian Patents include: Sony, Hitachi, Sanyo, Pioneer, Philips, JVC, Panasonic, Sharp, LG Electronics, Samsung, Funai, Orion, Apex, Korat Denki, World, Eastech, Toshiba, eRAE, Seiko Epson, Xiamen, Shenzhen KXD, NewLane, Konka, TTE, Optoma, Coretronic, ViewSonic, Syntax-Brillian, NEC, AKAI, Chunghwa, Humax,
Shinco, Jabil Circuit, LiteOn, Top Powersonic, Nakamichi, Emerson Radio, Esto, BenQ, Runco, Daewoo Tecwell, ProView, Redmond Group and more. A number of other major corporations such as Dell Inc. have committed to selling televisions under Tri-Vision's license.

As part of the transition to a digital television broadcast system in the United States, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has mandated phased-in rules to ensure that the V-chip can respond to any rating system changes in all digital television receiver products by March 1, 2007. Tri-Vision's open V-chip (also known as V-chip 2.0) is said to be the only known patented technology capable of accepting modified or new rating systems.
