HARTFORD, Wisconsin, Oct. 21, 2013
HARTFORD, Wisconsin, Oct. 21, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- e-ImageData announced today
that the United States Patent and Trademark Office has issued e-ImageData a
second U.S. Patent relating to its digital microform imaging technology (U.S.
Patent No. 8,537,279). The patent covers technology used in e-ImageData's
ScanPro products -- microform scanners used in the world's most prestigious
libraries and institutions.

"We are continuously innovating," says James Westoby, president of
e-ImageData. Our ScanPro products use patented and patent pending technologies
to link to secondary sources when a word is selected, copy highlighted
microfilm areas as text to the clipboard for pasting to other programs,
convert microfilm images into word-searchable PDFs and to automatically find
and highlight text on the displayed microfilm image. "These features have
forever changed the way people work with microfilm," says Westoby.
"e-ImageData takes pride in our constant innovation and commitment to keeping
our customers at the cutting edge of digital scanner technology," says
Westoby. "We are committed to protecting our intellectual property so that we
can continue to move forward in providing our customers with the most dynamic
product on the market."
An important part of e-ImageData's effort to protect its patented technology
will be to continue challenging those that e-ImageData believes are infringing
its patents. Last year e-ImageData filed a patent infringement lawsuit in the
United States District Court for the Western District of Wisconsin against
Konica Minolta, and two companies that sell digital microfilm scanners made by
Konica Minolta, asserting infringement of U.S. Patent 8,269,890. e-ImageData
believes that Konica Minolta's SL1000 scanner also infringes its newly issued
'279 Patent. Therefore, today, e-ImageData filed a second patent infringement
lawsuit in the United States District Court for the Western District of
Wisconsin against Konica Minolta and will continue to vigorously protect its
intellectual property rights.
In business since 1989, e-ImageData is the industry leader in the design,
manufacture, and distribution of micrographic equipment. The ScanPro microfilm
scanners are the equipment of choice in the world's most prestigious libraries
