MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwired - May 8, 2013) - SENSIO Technologies Inc. ("SENSIO") (TSX VENTURE:SIO) today announced that the recent license agreement between Wi-LAN Inc. and some of its subsidiaries (together "WiLAN") and Panasonic Corporation ("Panasonic"), announced by WiLAN on May 6, 2013, included rights granted to Panasonic under SENSIO's patents covering its SENSIO® S2D Switch ("S2D Switch") technology.

"The Panasonic agreement is the first license granted by WiLAN under our partnership", said Nicholas Routhier, President & CEO, SENSIO. "Having a license agreement signed so soon after entering into the partnership leaves us optimistic about the pace at which licensing activity is being undertaken by WiLAN. We are also very pleased that Panasonic, a pioneer in the 3D television market, has decided to take a license to our S2D Switch technology, and look forward to other TV vendors also recognizing the value of our technology and joining Panasonic as fellow licensees."
