Leica Camera AG Licenses a Patent Portfolio of Intellectual Ventures to Strengthen Its Intellectual Property Strategy and Business Position

Wed November 19, 2014

Leica Camera AG has licensed a patent portfolio of Intellectual Ventures™ (IV) to strengthen the existing intellectual property (IP) strategy and position of Leica Camera.

  • Intellectual Ventures is a privately-held invention capital company. IV builds a market for invention by making invention a profitable activity.
  • It has more than $6 billion committed capital and more than 40,000 intellectual property  (IP) assets in active monetization programs.
  • IV licenses intellectual property portfolios to companies, individuals, and institutions.

C-suite (a.k.a. chief executive officers, chief operating officers and chief information officers) at successful, growing companies faces multiple challenges such as technological convergence, limited R&D (Research & Development) capacities, and fierce global competition.

The agreement provides Leica, the Wetzlar based manufacturer of cameras and sport optics products, with a license to IV’s patent portfolio of nearly 40,000 IP assets in more than 50 technology areas, including digital imaging.

IV’s patent expertise, IP assets, and invention capabilities span the IT industry and every discipline of science and technology, helping companies gain efficient access to a global source of invention rights.,

Together with our customers, Intellectual Ventures is Bridging the Invention Gap™ by significantly reducing liabilities and providing access to valuable invention rights.

The Invention Gap—the difference between the invention rights companies own and the intellectual property (IP) assets they use—represents a strategic risk and potentially substantial financial liability. According to PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP, over the past 15 years, the annual median damages award for patent litigation in the U.S. has ranged from $2.4M to $10.5M—with single initial judgments as high as $1.8B.

Intellectual Ventures (IV®)

This video presents Patents Matter.

  • “Intellectual Ventures (IV) has always believed that patents are valuable, and the Market Research on Patent Attitudes study confirms that the C-suite shares this belief.

Here are the key benefits of licensing IV’s Patent Portfolio.

  • IV is an efficient source of IP and is uniquely positioned to help customers mitigate risk and increase their IP potential through licensing IV’s assembled portfolio containing nearly 40,000 IP assets in active monetization programs.
  • No longer deal with multiple patent owners; IV assembles the best available assets in the industry.
  • Avoid multiple business and legal costs, such as royalty stacking, through one licensing transaction.
  • Reduce exposure to litigation and the toll it will take on a business through fees and business disruption.
  • IV customers have access to value-added solutions designed to address short-term IP-related concerns while providing long-term leverage for their business success.
  • Access to IV’s acquisitions channels to source and buy relevant IP.
  • Leverage IV’s network of inventors to create new inventions.
  • Extend R&D efforts through acquiring and outsourcing targeted invention.
  • Monetize underutilized IP portfolio assets.
  • Mitigate potential threats by collaborating on defensive strategies: Intellectual Ventures’ IP-for-Defense™ program.
    • Intellectual Ventures’ patent experts identify patents in the Intellectual Ventures’ portfolio that could mitigate strategic risk for their customers.

Leica is also now a subscriber to IV’s IP-for-Defense™ program.

model-shipment-priceRather than the traditional back-illuminated CMOS image sensor’s support substrate, the Exmor RS™ uses a chip consisting of signal processing circuits, on top of which is stacked a pixel section consisting of back-illuminated pixels for an original stacked construction. This kind of stacked CMOS imaging sensor, which delivers superior image quality and high functionality in a compact size, was first commercialized by Sony in 2012.

The new IMX230 is a type 1/2.4 stacked CMOS image sensor with a significantly improved 21 effective megapixels, and it is also equipped with a newly developed signal processing function. These features fulfill the growing needs in smartphone photography for high-speed autofocus (image plane phase detection AF) and clear, high-quality capture of bright and dark areas even in backlit scenes (HDR imaging). Image plane phase detection AF is a technology used in mirrorless interchangeable-lens cameras, and HDR imaging now supports not only 4K (4096 x 2160) high-resolution videos but also still images. Sony also plans to extend the lineup by adding a 16 effective megapixels stacked CMOS image sensor equipped with image plane phase detection AF and HDR imaging functions by the end of the next fiscal year.

How Hard It Used To Be To Take A Simple Picture!

Sat November 15, 2014

You may be an expert in cameras, having used film and all, but to those kids, you (and I) are… ancient! This video is fun to watch but also dates everyone who understands the funny moments.

As technology rolls on, our kids will look back and wonder why cameras ever had mirrors inside, used a memory card and pictures were not instantly accessible everywhere using any device. Why did pictures come out blurred? What is post-processing and why did so-called professionals need to use it to produce images others could not — even when they used the same expensive cameras? And why couldn’t everybody take action-freezing, color perfect, focused anywhere, detail splitting pictures in the blink of an eye?

Those kids in the video who are laughing at us? It’ll be pay-back time soon enough for them when their kids will laugh at them old folks. Just you wait.

Canon Contributes to Production of Primary Mirror for the Thirty Meter Telescope, a Next-Generation Extremely Large Telescope

Thu November 13, 2014

The following video presents Thirty Meter Telescope.

The core of the Thirty Meter Telescope (TMT) Observatory will be a wide-field, alt-az Ritchey-Chretien telescope with a 492 segment, 30 meter diameter primary mirror, a fully active secondary mirror and an articulated tertiary mirror. The optical beam of this telescope will feed a constellation of adaptive optics (AO) systems and science instruments mounted on large Nasmyth platforms surrounding the telescope azimuth structure. These platforms will be large enough to support at least eight different AO/instrument combinations (depending on exact volume and mass parameters) covering a broad range of spatial and spectral resolution. To support and maintain these technical systems, a comprehensive set of support facilities is included in the basic observatory design.

TMT will couple unprecedented light collection area (almost 10 times more than one of the Keck telescopes) with diffraction-limited spatial resolution that exceeds Keck by a factor of 3. Relative to the Hubble Space Telescope (arguably the most revolutionary astronomical instrument of our generation), TMT will have 144 times the collecting area and more than a factor of 10 better spatial resolution at near-infrared and longer wavelengths.

http://www.tmt.org/observatory

Construction of the telescope began in 2014 with completion scheduled for the early 2020s.

  • Japan will handle the processing of approximately 30% of the 492 segments (574 when including replacement segments) that make up the TMT’s primary mirror.
  • Of the processing being handled by the team from Japan, Canon is currently responsible for grinding 26 segments and has already begun work.

To produce the segments, Canon is drawing on its various optical technologies cultivated through the manufacture of lenses and mirrors, namely grinding and polishing technologies, aspherical surface processing technologies, and measuring technologies.

  • In particular, Canon will make use of its proprietary tools when grinding and polishing the aspherical surfaces to ensure the proper curvature required for each segment.

Canon technologies contribute to production of primary mirror used in TMT extremely large telescope

TOKYO, November 13, 2014—Canon Inc. announced today that the Company has been entrusted with the responsibility of processing the 30-meter-diameter multi-segment primary mirror to be incorporated in the Thirty Meter Telescope (TMT) currently under construction near the summit of Mauna Kea, Hawaii.

The creation of the TMT, a next-generation extremely large telescope, is being made possible through the cooperative efforts of Japan and four other countries. Construction of the telescope began in 2014 with completion scheduled for the early 2020s. Japan will handle the processing of approximately 30% of the 492 segments (574 when including replacement segments) that make up the TMT’s primary mirror. Of the processing being handled by the team from Japan, Canon is currently responsible for grinding 26 segments and has already begun work.

The TMT’s primary mirror will comprise an array of 492 hexagonal segments, each of which measures 1.44 meters diagonally with a thickness of 45 millimeters. The segments will be closely arranged, separated by gaps measuring only 2.5 millimeters wide, to create the 30-meter-diameter primary mirror. The primary mirror’s construction requires the production of six each (seven when including replacement segments) of the 82 uniquely shaped segments used to create the mirror.

The processing work that Canon is responsible for requires that segments be processed at a level of precision measuring less than 2 microns Peak-to-Valley (P-V), a value that indicates differences in surface levels. This degree of precision is comparable to a variation in the surface evenness of the playing field housed in the Tokyo Dome sports stadium of less than 0.2 millimeters. To produce the segments, Canon is drawing on its various optical technologies cultivated through the manufacture of lenses and mirrors, namely grinding and polishing technologies, aspherical surface processing technologies, and measuring technologies. In particular, Canon will make use of its proprietary tools when grinding and polishing the aspherical surfaces to ensure the proper curvature required for each segment.
