PARIS--(Marketwire - June 23, 2010) - Technicolor (Euronext Paris 18453; NYSE: TCH) announced today that it would open a new research lab dedicated to personalization of digitally delivered content and services in Palo Alto, California.

Creation of the new lab is consistent with the company's intention to leverage its strong positions among content creators and distributors in order to provide more innovative and engaging services to users, especially within the context of the digital home.
