In January of this year, Visual Effect Innovations, LLC’s (VEI’s) December 2016 case against NVIDIA ended in settlement, leaving active in the campaign three September 2017 cases, one each filed against LG Electronics (LGE), Sony, and Samsung. VEI has now added a second case against Sony (1:18-cv-00675) in the District of Delaware, and a second case against Samsung (2:18-cv-00184) in the Eastern District of Texas. The plaintiff targets image processing techniques allegedly used in the defendants’ televisions (e.g., 4K upscaling, motion blur reduction, local dimming, etc.), asserting against Sony one patent originally at issue in (but recently dropped from) cases against both LGE and NVIDIA, and asserting against both Samsung and Sony two patents new to the campaign entirely.
