Teletext Expert in Electronic Display Technology
A teletext expert in electronic display technology was needed for a patent infringement case. The plaintiff was a prominent designer, manufacturer and distributor of cable boxes, handheld controls, and content distribution networks. The defendant licensed teletext technologies for television and VCR systems. The company who developed the teletext technology used in the products manufactured by the plaintiff had been acquired by the defendant. The plaintiff alleged that the defendant infringed on their patents by licensing and selling products that used teletext technology.
IMS ExpertServices was asked to locate teletext experts who were knowledgeable in electronic display technology and the interaction capabilities of teletext and GUIDE Plus+ in a set top box and interactive TV environment. The experts would be asked to review documents, prepare reports, and provide testimony.
