Lenbrook To Go Factory Direct For NAD, PSB, Tivoli

Lenbrook America will begin on June 1 to sell its NAD and PSB home audio brands through in-house regional sales managers for the first time after having sold exclusively through independent reps since the company's founding 20 years ago. The company will drop all or almost all of its independent reps in the U.S. and will decide on Tuesday whether to keep one or two, said Dean Miller, who earlier this year was appointed president/CEO of the U.S.-based subsidiary of Canada's Lenbrook Group. Lenbrook will hire three to four regional sales managers, each responsible for sales of the NAD, PSB, and Tivoli brands. They will report to Miller. Miller told TWICE that the decision to go direct was difficult, given Lenbrook's long relationship with U.S. rep firms. "We're grateful to these companies," he said. Multiple factors, however, forced the company's hand, including retail consolidation in the specialty-A/V channel, a flat audio specialty market, and continued rising business costs.

TiVo, EchoStar case ends with $500 million payout

After several years of litigation, the patent-infringement case that TiVo launched against Dish Network and EchoStar has come to an end. Dish Network and EchoStar have agreed to pay TiVo $500 million to settle the case, including an upfront payment of $290 million from Dish and $10 million from EchoStar. Between 2012 and 2017, the companies will pay TiVo the remaining $200 million in equal installments. The parties also agreed to eliminate all pending litigation between them. The battle between the companies started in 2004 when TiVo claimed EchoStar, which was Dish Network's parent company before the satellite provider was spun off in 2007, violated its "multimedia time warping system patent." That patent covers how DVR users can watch one program while another is recorded. For its part, TiVo felt vindicated. The company said last month that after a long wait, it finally had the ruling it needed to ensure it could receive the damages it has been seeking for years.

Logitech makes just $5m from Google TV, hints future models

Logitech was herald of wider problems with Google TV on Thursday after its winter fiscal results (PDF) revealed very low numbers. The peripheral maker made just $5 million in sales from the Revue and all its accessories. At $300 per device, the figure would have seen it ship fewer than 16,700 of the Android-based media hubs. The sales were a steep drop from the $22 million in the fall, the Revue's first full quarter in shops. It also fell well below its official estimates of $18 million. Logitech chief executive Gerald Quindlen justified the plunge by claiming that his firm had reduced the amount of marketing, but the claim was contradicted by a 19 percent increase in marketing costs that had been focused heavily on Google TV. Some anticipation has circulated around a reboot of Google TV at the upcoming Google I/O conference in May. While never confirmed by Google, rumors have persisted that it forced a last-minute delay in many companies' Google TV plans that pushed their launches from the CES expo in January to the fall to give time for a theoretically much improved version of the platform.
