Visual Effect Innovations, LLC (VEI), a subsidiary of Monument Patent Holdings, LLC, has filed cases against LG Electronics (LGE) (1:17-cv-01275) and Sony (1:17-cv-01276) in the campaign that it began last December with a suit against NVIDIA. VEI’s original complaint against NVIDIA asserted two patents, generally related to 3D filters, against NVIDIA’s 3D glasses with “independent lens control”, but in July, the NPE filed an amended complaint in that case, adding two video image processing patents and accompanying, new infringement allegations against a variety of NVIDIA graphics cards used to display 3D video games, among other things. These latest complaints add to the campaign a fifth patent, issued by the USPTO in July, from the same 21-member family, with the set of accused products now sweeping in televisions, monitors, and laser projectors.
