Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From 9to5mac.com: “RAW video patent battle ends with Apple losing to RED- 9to5Mac”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Apple has lost a patent battle against high-end pro camera company RED over a method used to compress RAW video footage.

The Cupertino company had claimed that RED should never have been awarded a patent for its ProRes RAW codec because the technology was obvious …

The codec is used in RED cameras to compress RAW video as it is captured. Other companies wanting to use it in their own devices have to pay a royalty. Apple had objected to that, reports Engadget.

Apple claimed that RED’s patent was strongly based on two other patents: One pertained to the capture of lossless RAW video at HD, 2K and 4K resolutions, while the other was for a processing technique that allowed for compression of RAW sensor data. Apple argued that since RED’s patent was a combination of two prior patents, its own technology was “unpatentable.”

RED fired back with in-depth responses stating that its work was unique from those patents, and that it had been working on the technology prior to the timeframe that Apple had claimed.
