Mitch Liu and his team at SLIVER.tv are on a mission to transform how eSports' 250 million viewers and virtual reality interact. With its open beta launch in August 2016, the eSports entertainment platform received a $6.2 million seed round of equity funding. Building technology for such a global phenomenon merits intellectual property with a similar reach, which is why the technology was filed in the United States first, and under the Patent Cooperation Treaty (PCT) later. According to the World Intellectual Property Organization, "filing one international patent application under the PCT, applicants can simultaneously seek protection for an invention in 148 countries throughout the world".
Cambridge Electronics Inc. (CEI) developed proprietary gallium nitride (GaN) technology starting in 2007 at Massachusetts Institute of Technology. The material is poised to become the next semiconductor in power electronics, which is used to convert electricity to higher or lower voltages and different currents. The use of GaN technology leads to higher efficiency than silicon. The company also overcame safety drawbacks and expensive manufacturing methods by innovating the parts’ design. The emerging material and its unique application created a number of patent considerations for CEI, which were managed by American Patent Agency.
