Microsoft To License Its IP To Vimio

Vimio, the mobile streaming and compression company based in Dublin, has licensed some streaming optimization technology from Microsoft’s new IP Ventures program. Vimio went public on London’s AIM market last year. Vimio will collaborate with the Microsoft Research lab in Cambridge, UK, and will leverage technology from Microsoft that makes it possible to deliver video in low-bandwidth environments with “clearer shape, smoother motion and shorter latency than alternative technologies on mobile devices”. Meaning better quality on a mobile phone.
