RealD has acquired the remaining assets of MasterImage in a transaction that closed today. Assets acquired by RealD include all intellectual property, technology, inventory, and accounts receivable previously controlled by MasterImage.
The acquisition of these assets follows several key legal victories in which RealD successfully asserted their patents against MasterImage. These victories include a recent court-ordered ban of the infringing products by the US International Trade Commission, and wins against MasterImage in various other jurisdictions around the world.
“RealD remains committed to visual technology innovation and to protecting our intellectual property around the world,” said RealD Founder and CEO Michael V. Lewis.
