ObjectVideo, a producer of intelligent video software, has agreed to end a complaint filed with the U.S. International Trade Commission (USITC) that led to an investigation of Samsung.

By withdrawing the complain against Samsung, the USTIC investigation is terminated, thereby enabling ObjectVideo to focus attention on an USITC trial involving Robert Bosch GmbH and Bosch Security Systems Inc., ObjectVideo says.

On July 18, 2012, ObjectVideo filed an unopposed motion to terminate Samsung from the USITC investigation. “Both parties agreed this was the appropriate next step as part of our continued efforts to resolve the dispute between the companies,” said Raul Fernandez, ObjectVideo’s CEO.

However, the trial against Bosch, which commenced on July 18 and is being conducted at the USITC in Washington, is the result of an investigation pertaining to products produced by Robert Bosch GmbH and Bosch Security Systems Inc., continues, ObjectVideo says.

“With Samsung out of the ITC action, we can focus on Bosch, whose products implement numerous infringing video analytic technologies, including metadata, tripwire, and slip-and-fall technology,” Fernandez says. The suits involve at least five patents, the U.S. patent numbers 6,696,945; 6,970,083; 7,613,324; 7,868,912; and 7,932,923.
