The Chamberlain Group, Inc. Files Patent Infringement Lawsuit Against Linear LLC

The Chamberlain Group Inc. announced that it has filed a patent infringement lawsuit against Linear LLC (Linear). The lawsuit was filed on July 9, 2014 in the U.S. Federal District Court in Chicago, Illinois. It alleges that Linear's GD00Z Garage Door Remote Controller and SW-ATT-GDC Garage Door Remote Controller Products infringe three CGI patents: U.S. Patent No. 6,998,977, issued in 2006, for monitoring and controlling the operator of a moveable barrier, such as a garage door or gate, over a network, for example, from a smartphone. U.S. Patent Nos. 7,852,212 issued in 2010 and 8,144,011 issued in 2012, for interacting with the operator of a moveable barrier, such as a garage door or gate, through an alarm system. The inventions in the three patents at issue in the lawsuit provide fundamentally new and useful capabilities.

Linear LLC Announces New Line of Analog CCTV Cameras

Linear LLC announces new high-resolution analog surveillance cameras with a variety of video enhancement and design features to compensate for lighting, vandalism, and weather. Versatile dome, bullet and box enclosures give dealers a range of form factor options to accommodate different installation needs. The LV-D4HRW-212 (low-light) and LV-D4HRDIW-212 (day/night) dome cameras are designed for indoor use and offer up to 700 TV lines of resolution as well as an Effio-E enhanced chipset for superior color performance. Digital Wide-Dynamic Range (WDR) imaging on both models allow them to capture highlight and shadow detail ­ including backlit images ­ in the same scene. Additional features include noise reduction, a variable focus 2.8-12 mm lens, and three- axis adjustment to simplify installation. The LV-D4HRDIW-212 also comes equipped with smart IR illumination to handle bright and dark video surveillance requirements. Loss prevention professionals can rest easy with Linear aluminum alloy vandal dome cameras keeping watch on exterior doors and perimeters. Resistant against inclement weather and direct impacts, the analog cameras operate in temperatures ranging from -10ºC to +50 ºC and have a robust IP66 rating. Model LV-D4HNWV-212 features Pixim Nightwolf, a chipset that eliminates hot spots common to IR cameras with near-field reflective objects in the scene and correctly exposes highlights as well as darker background details simultaneously. Rounding out the new line are the LV-BHRDI-212 outdoor bullet camera and the LV- CAMHRDW fixed box camera. Both feature the Enhanced Effio-E imager chip set, 700TVL and day/night functionality. The Bullet camera also includes zoom/focus, a three-axis bracket, IR lighting capabilities and a sunshield to provide ease of placement and precision surveillance from a discreet but rugged form factor.
