font size    

In Beijing on October 31, Microsoft announced it has authorized two Chinese companies to use mobile picture technology, mobile visual optimization technology, and individualized facial cartoon technology developed by Microsoft Research (MSR) Asia, its first cooperation with Chinese companies since Microsoft's patent technology cooperation program was established in May 2005.

The two Chinese enterprises are Shenzhen Comtech and Hu'nan Talkweb Information Systems. The former is a solution supplier of technical products, whose clients include the majority of well-known manufacturers of mobile phones, telecommunication equipment and electronic products. The latter is a key software enterprise, specializing in software development and information systems reconstruction. It will use Microsoft's technology to simplify the production of cartoons and animation.

The goal of Microsoft's program is to introduce innovative technology to global enterprises to accelerate the development of enterprises and promote the growth of the global software industry.

Dr. Zhang Yaqin, the Vice-president of Microsoft and the President of its China Research and Development Group, said that the execution of this program in China not only extended the growth of both Microsoft and the local economy, but was also the beginning of cooperation and development between Microsoft and local IT enterprises.

"Transforming innovative technology into products as soon as possible to help more enterprises improve their competitiveness is the worthy goal of this program," said Dr. Shen Xiangyang, Director and Chief Scientist of Microsoft Research (MSR) Asia.

Microsoft currently invests US$8 billion annually in scientific research and development.

Growing enterprises can avail themselves of updated research to obtain market advantages with the permission of this program or the purchase of Microsoft's technology which has not been used in the market. Microsoft's patent technology cooperation program will be unfolded globally and update usable technology any time.
