Ampex CorporationAmpex digital video recorder patents to Samsung : Ampex Corp. today announced that it has concluded a license agreement with Samsung Electronics, based in Korea, permitting the use of several United States and foreign patents held by Ampex in the manufacture and sale of digital video tape recorders, including MiniDV camcorders. The license agreement also permits Samsung to use certain Ampex patents in other camcorders utilizing hard disc drive, optical or solid-state memories. The terms of the license are confidential.

The foregoing payment also includes a non-refundable, non-forfeitable prepay-ment in respect of royalties due in the period through 2008. Use of Ampex's patents after that time would require negotiation of a new license agreement. Ampex has previously announced a license agreement with Samsung Techwin Co., Ltd., a separate company which is the manufacturer of Samsung digital still cameras. Ampex continues to negotiate patent licenses with additional manufacturers of digital video recorders utilizing hard disc drive, optical or solid-state memories; digital still cameras; camera-equipped cellular telephones and other products.
