<<<<Gemstar develops, markets and licenses proprietary technologies and systems aimed at making technology user-friendly for consumers.

Gemstar's technology and intellectual property are licensed to major companies in the consumer electronics, satellite, cable and personal computer industries, including Aiwa, Akai, Cox, Daewoo, Funai, GTE, Hitachi, Hughes Network Systems, JVC, LG Electronics (Goldstar), Matsushita (Panasonic, Quasar), Microsoft Corp., Mitsubishi, Orion, Philips (Magnavox, Philips), Samsung, Sanyo, Scientific-Atlanta, Sharp, Shintom, Sony, Southern New England Telephone, Thomson multimedia (GE, Proscan, RCA, Thomson), Time Warner, Toshiba, Uniden and Zenith.

The company continues to pursue a worldwide patent prosecution program and has more than 130 pending U.S. patent applications and more than 160 pending foreign patent applications.

Gemstar is a leading provider of electronic program guide services, which allow a user to view a television program guide on screen, obtain details about a show, sort shows by themes or categories, and select shows for tuning or recording, all through the remote control. In the United States, data for Gemstar's electronic program guide services are carried on the ABC, Fox, CBS, NBC, UPN and PBS networks by hundreds of over-the-air broadcast stations and on a number of cable networks. Gemstar's electronic program guide has been built into a number of models of new televisions, VCRs and TV/VCR combination units.

Gemstar's VCR Plus+ instant programming system is a world standard for VCR programming. VCR Plus+ allows a user to record a television show simply by entering a number -- the PlusCode® number -- printed in television program guides. The PlusCode numbers are published by more than 1,800 newspapers and television program guides worldwide, with a combined circulation of more than 330 million. The VCR Plus+ system has been licensed to virtually every major television and VCR manufacturer and is now available in 40 countries and six continents, including the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Continental Europe, Japan, Southeast Asia, Australia, New Zealand, South America and South Africa.
