MasterImage 3D Challenges RealD’s Intellectual Property Portfolio in the United States; Asserts Patents Replicate Pre-Existing Techniques

MasterImage 3D, a worldwide leader in 3D display technologies for digital cinema, challenged the validity of four of RealD’s 3D polarization patents by filing five petitions for Inter Partes Review (IPR) with the United States Patent and Trademark Office. MasterImage 3D asserts that RealD’s patents claim to have invented techniques that have been well-known for decades and should never have been granted.

MasterImage 3D pursued the IPR as a faster legal resolution than the patent lawsuit filed by RealD against MasterImage 3D. In the opinion of MasterImage 3D, RealD’s improper patent protection stalls competition in the 3D business. A correction would encourage innovation in 3D technology to the benefit of both moviegoers and the exhibition industry.
