ObjectVideo Files Complaint Against Bosch, Samsung and Sony

RESTON, VA--(Marketwire - April 7, 2011) - ObjectVideo®, the leader in intelligent video, today announced it has filed a complaint in the United States District Court of Virginia against Robert Bosch GmbH; Bosch Security Systems, Inc.; Samsung Group; Samsung Techwin Co., Ltd.; Samsung Techwin America; Sony Corporation; and Sony Electronics, Inc. The complaint seeks damages as well as injunctive relief against the defendants for the sale of products that contain software features and functions which infringe certain ObjectVideo patents.

"With the strong increase of video analytics offerings over the past few years, we've seen a similar increase in the number of companies using ObjectVideo's patented technologies without paying for them," said Bill Marino, chief intellectual property officer for ObjectVideo. "We need to ensure our existing IP and software partners are not unfairly disadvantaged in the marketplace by competitors whose products use the same or similar functionality to innovations that are ours."

World-class research and development, dating from early 1998 when ObjectVideo was founded, has resulted in the company's seminal video analytics patent portfolio. To date, ObjectVideo holds 37 United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) and International patents, along with 46 USPTO and International patents pending, all in the field of computer vision.
