45 Years of InterDigital... in Videos

February 16, 2018 / Posted By: Patrick Van de Wille

Of course, not many companies in the tech space have the history that InterDigital does: we were founded one year after Intel introduced the first microprocessor, and the same year as Wang introduced the first word processor and that Pong was launched. We thought it would be great if we dug into the vaults, pulled together some of our material, and created a series of short videos on some of the most important moments in our history as a company. The result is available at

We take pride in the fact that many of our shareholders, partners, alumni and others have a long history of association with the company, many dating back to our International Mobile Machines (IMM) days. For those who’ve been part of the extended InterDigital family for a long time, I hope you’ll enjoy the comments and memories of Gary Lomp, Fatih Ozloturk, Brian Kiernan, and others whose time with the company has marked our history, as well as footage of the first Ultraphone deployments, the Reagan Ranch, the Avianca crash, and other oddball moments that have marked our first 45 years.
