In a case filed last week, Dynamic Data Technologies, LLC accuses Intel (1:18-cv-01977) of infringing 11 of the patents that it recently acquired from MaxLinear. A range of products are accused, including processors that offer “Localized Adaptive Contrast Control” (a feature that controls the contrast in a displayed image); processors supporting “Multi-Media Samples (‘MMS’) Version 1.3”, which “contain[s] functionality for generating a mosaic program guide” (a digital TV guide feature that displays a single frame from a video program for each TV program entry); processors offering certain versions of Intel Quick Sync Video (a hardware-based video encoder) along with a GPU, with certain video encoding features at issue; Intel RealSense products, which include depth-sensing cameras; and field-programmable gate array (FPGA) Video Image Processing (VIP) Suite IP cores, with certain video processing features at issue. Intel joins a dozen other companies already defendants in the campaign, including Alphabet (Google), AMD, Apple, Amazon, Dell, HTC, LG Electronics, MediaTek, Microsoft, NVIDIA, Qualcomm, and Samsung.
