January, 14 2021 siOPTICA has been awarded as a Digital Innovation leader by the well-known F.A.Z. institute

bm|t Investee Part­ner siOP­TICA, a lead­ing provider for switch­able pri­vacy tech­nol­ogy solu­tions proudly announces that it has been selected as Dig­i­tal Inno­va­tion Leader in Ger­many 2020 by the highly renowned F.A.Z. Insti­tute.

The award­ing of this title to siOP­TICA in two cat­e­gories is based on the eval­u­a­tion of Intel­lec­tual Prop­erty pub­li­ca­tions and their impact on the indus­try, by inde­pen­dent eval­u­a­tion of IP data of 150,000+ cor­po­ra­tions and insti­tutes in Germany.

Par­tic­u­larly, in the field of audio-visual tech­nol­ogy (sub-cat­e­gory of Infor­ma­tion com­mu­ni­ca­tion devices), siOP­TICA is ranked #13 in Ger­many in inno­v­a­tive­ness and #25 in impact on other com­pa­nies, amongst other large cor­po­ra­tions and research networks.

Fur­ther­more, in the field of optics (sub-cat­e­gory of Infor­ma­tion com­mu­ni­ca­tion devices), the com­pany is ranked #49 in Ger­many for inno­v­a­tive­ness and #60 in impact on other companies.

For a start up like siOP­TICA, this rank­ing award is an incred­i­ble proof of its inno­v­a­tive­ness and indus­trial rel­e­vance”, under­lines Dr. Markus Klipp­stein, CEO siOPTICA.

In line with the rank­ing award, siOP­TICA has just filed its 150th intel­lec­tual prop­erty right, which actu­ally equals the 53rd Ger­man domes­tic patent appli­ca­tion of the com­pany. Out of the lat­ter, 15 Ger­man patents have been granted already by the Ger­man Patent and Trade­mark Office.

The cur­rent siOP­TICA IP port­fo­lio com­prises 61 granted patents in var­i­ous coun­tries, such as Japan, China, Korea, Tai­wan and diverse Euro­pean coun­tries, and is also includ­ing a total of presently 8 granted U.S. patents.

Main focus of this strong IP port­fo­lio are switch­able pri­vacy tech­nolo­gies, such as for instance the sioSHIELD™ tech­nol­ogy. The siOP­TICA switch­able pri­vacy solu­tions are mainly used in auto­mo­tive pas­sen­gers dis­plays, lap­tops, tablets and mobile phones and offer top notch pri­vacy per­for­mance, thus bring­ing up great client benefits.
