e.Digital Files Patent Infringement Lawsuit Against ArcSoft

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwired - January 13, 2015) - e.Digital Corporation (OTCQB: EDIG), a long standing source of innovation and future-defining patented technologies, today announced that it has filed a patent infringement lawsuit against "connected" security camera maker ArcSoft, Inc. dba Closeli and as simplicam. The complaint was filed in the United States District Court for the Southern District of California.

Handal & Associates, on behalf of the Company, has filed the lawsuit against ArcSoft, asserting infringement of five patents that are part of the Nunchi® patent portfolio. e.Digital believes the ArcSoft products named in the complaint infringe key aspects of the Company's Nunchi patents, covering the use of devices to communicate and monitor remote locations.

Nunchi technology involves the retrieval of data from fixed or mobile sensors, using it to recognize, understand and affect interactions. Services based on the Nunchi portfolio include the use of servers, communication networks, sensors, adaptive algorithms and relational databases to understand and respond to the needs of people. The Nunchi applications range from simplistic tasks such as communication screening to much more complex tasks such as optimizing a user's interactions and activities to enrich their lives.

"We are continuing to see new products coming to market that exhibit reliance on the teachings of our Nunchi patent portfolio," commented Fred Falk, president and CEO of e.Digital. "The simplicam product is one example of how the connected home industry is increasingly becoming more reliant on the collection of data from remote sensors. As this data is interpreted to determine what, if any, response is required, e.Digital's Nunchi technology becomes involved. e.Digital is a leader in developing new technologies at the forefront of this explosion of new products. As the connected home industry continues to evolve, we believe that the interface between remote data collection and the user will become more frequent and the demand for remotely controlled devices will grow," concluded Falk.
