RealD Issues Statement Regarding Misrepresentations and Misleading Claims
Made by Volfoni
LOS ANGELES -- June 17, 2014
Global 3D and visual technology company RealD Inc. (NYSE: RLD) has issued a
statement to correct misinformation and to clarify misrepresentations made in
a press release regarding the RealD XL Cinema System intellectual property
rights and RealD’s decision to dismiss the U.S. patent lawsuit against Volfoni
in the United States District Court for the Central District of California.
RealD made the decision to dismiss the U.S. patent lawsuit against Volfoni
without prejudice only after Volfoni made specific representations and
warranties that it had not sold or distributed, and is not selling or
distributing, the Smart Diamond Crystal product in the United States which
RealD believes infringes its US patents. In the event Volfoni’s
representations are false or Volfoni begins selling the Smart Diamond Crystal
product or any modified version of that product in the United States, RealD
has reserved the right to continue the suit against Volfoni in the same court,
at the company’s discretion.
RealD maintains an extensive patent portfolio connected to its XL Cinema
System product line in numerous international markets, including the United
States, Europe, China, Japan, S. Korea, Australia, Brazil, Canada, India,
Mexico and Russia, and intends to vigorously enforce its international
intellectual property rights for all RealD products in order to stop copying
and unlicensed use of its inventions by others.

projection technology with more than 15,000 units installed around the world.
