Viztone is pleased to announce the successful granting of its US patent relating to Video Ring Tones by the USPTO. The application, with a filing date that goes back to 2001 relates to the delivery of Video Ring Back Tones and Video Ring Tones, which may typically be used to deliver advertising or informative content to any willing participant.

An increasing number of businesses are looking to exploit the mobile device as a lucrative channel for the delivery of highly targeted advertising content; this method which is easy to deliver and most importantly is unobtrusive to the user is seen as a highly effective method of advertising during person-to-person communication.

Martyn Butterworth Viztone’s chairman comments “It’s been a long road but we’re delighted to add a granted US patent to our portfolio which includes patents granted in the UK and Australia, we’ve always seen the US is key to our longer term objectives and are now actively looking for partners to help us exploit our patents & technology”


Viztone is a privately owned UK based company that has developed Video Ring back Tone and Video Ring Tone technology based around its patent portfolio.
