LOS ANGELES, Global 3D technology solutions leader Volfoni confirmed today that it will vigorously defend the U.S.
patent lawsuit brought by RealD Inc. against Volfoni’s groundbreaking 3D cinema system, SmartCrystal™ Diamond. Volfoni asserts that RealD’s allegations of U.S. patent infringement are without merit, and that its SmartCrystal™ Diamond system uses an innovative, original technology. At this time, RealD has no corresponding international patents for the U.S. patents at issue in the lawsuit. “Volfoni has always had an honest relationship with its clients and we are appalled at these allegations by RealD. Since the very beginning of Volfoni, innovation has been at the heart of our strategy, apparent in our motto ‘Creative 3D Technology,’ and our product SmartCrystal™ Diamond,” said Thierry Henkinet, President of Volfoni. “At the same time, Volfoni respects the intellectual property of other companies while protecting and standing behind its own products.” Volfoni has retained leading intellectual property law firm Quinn Emanuel Urquhart & Sullivan, LLP. “We intend to vigorously defend and pursue Volfoni’s rights, and expect to achieve a successful outcome to the lawsuit,” added Harold A.Barza of Quinn Emanuel.
Since its founding in 2007, Volfoni has grown to become one of the premier companies in 3D cinema, and recently has released on the international market the SmartCrystal™ Diamond 3D cinema projection system, which is powered by its newly engineered Triple Beam technology that gives 3D movies an extremely bright and clear picture with a light efficiency close to 30%. Volfoni has offices in France, Spain, Germany, the United Kingdom, Hong Kong, India, and Los Angeles, California. For more information, please visit our website at www.volfoni.com.
