Special Feature

Special Feature Fostering True Innovation Gian Antonio Pancot - CEO - Sisvel SpA highlights his Group’s commitment to bringing new and innovative technology to the consumer electronics market Gian Antonio Pancot CEO, Sisvel SpA Throughout its growth and development, Sisvel has always monitored the rapid changes of the global market and the opportunities it has offered, characterised by strong competition and integration. At the beginning of 2008, Sisvel foresaw the necessity to create a new entity by exploiting the knowledge and abilities developed within the company in previous years. Sisvel Technology was founded as a subsidiary of Sisvel, with the purpose of exploiting the group’s extensive technical experience in the consumer electronics market, in particular with the aim of implementing R&D programmes, developing intellectual property assets with potential market value, as well as assisting partners in defining geographical patenting policies based on manufacturer/ consumer market trends and in co-sponsoring R&D programmes. Thanks to the initial experience gained through working with standardisation bodies, a specific department was created with the purpose of coordinating research and development in the specific technological fields of home entertainment, mobile telephony, indoor and outdoor localisation, green technology and intelligent transport systems. In the past four years, Sisvel Technology’s team has been further strengthened with highly qualified professionals, allowing the coordination of important R&D projects with local and international entities. This includes the cooperation with: CSP - Innovation in ICT, a renowned local research centre of which Sisvel is also a shareholder; RAI CRIT (Centro Ricerche e Innovazione Tecnologica RAI), the national broadcaster’s research centre; IRT Munich (Institut für Rundfunktechnik); the University of Turin; the Polytechnic of Turin; the Istituto Superiore Mario Boella – ISMB, an entity operating inside the Polytechnic of Turin and Top-ix (Turin Piedmont Internet Exchange). Our strategic plan has led to the creation of a structure in which research and development represents the focal point of the company’s mission. Its success is assured thanks to its qualified team focused on achieving important results. With this philosophy in mind, Sisvel Technology developed the 3D Tile Format project. Sisvel Technology is now coordinating and promoting this project with the support of its main partners with which it regularly takes part in all major international trade fairs. Sisvel Technology’s partners have been involved in all stages of the entire chain, from product testing to manufacturing. This requires a regular exchange of information and experiences; as well as close contact with various standardisation bodies, manufacturers and the market itself. With this new challenge, Sisvel, the sole proprietor of Sisvel Technology, aims to put the “inventive loop” concept into action, to valorise IP rights, and thus to protect and consolidate the results of its intensive research. Sisvel has been involved in the consumer electronics field for 30 years and on several occasions has confirmed its interest in TV technology, starting point of its history which will be soon object of a new publication. In fact, it is convinced that research results will soon be successful, based on the fact that only the most innovative technologies will have a positive outcome on the market. » HALL 2.2 / STAND 113 Gian Antonio Pancot Gian Antonio Pancot is the CEO of Sisvel Spa.
