RealD Acquires MasterImage 3D Technology
RealD has acquired the assets and 3D technology of MasterImage. Deals of the transaction were not revealed.
In making the announcement, RealD stated Thursday that the acquisition follows several RealD patent infringement victories against MasterImage.
"These victories include a recent court-ordered ban of the infringing products by the U.S. International Trade Commission, and wins against MasterImage in various other jurisdictions around the world," the statement read.
RealD launched in the 3D exhibition space, though it also has been moving toward technology for production and postproduction. To that end, last fall it acquired Tessive, a developer of motion image processing technology.
