Is the H.264 License Fee Covered with Intel® Quick Sync Video Encoder?

Environment

Intel® processor with H.264 support via Intel® Quick Sync Video encoder.

BUILT IN - ARTICLE INTRO SECOND COMPONENT
Summary

Explains if the H.264 license fee is included with the purchase of an Intel® processor supporting Intel® Quick Sync Video

Description

Is the H.264 license fee already covered with the purchase of the processor? or is it needed to stipulate an additional license contract with MPEG LA?

Resolution

Intel does not have an H.264 license from MPEG LA for our processors as they typically license manufacturers of finished goods like PC OEMs as opposed to component suppliers, thus if you are under the impression you need an H.264 license from MPEGLA you would need to source that yourself.
