Audio equipment specialist Lawo has denied any wrongdoing after a patent infringement suit was filed against the German company by broadcast solutions supplier Evertz.
Lawo said in a statement that it will “vigorously defend itself against the unfounded claims that Evertz alleges.”
The alleged infringement concerns a patent for packet-based transmission of multiple data signals. Evertz filed suit in United States District Court in Delaware along with a separate lawsuit in Canada.
Lawo argued that Evertz’s statement failed to mention that the Canadian action was struck by the court “because Evertz failed to articulate a material basis for its claim.”
Claudia Nowak, Lawo CFO, said: “As we approach our 50th year of business, our customers understand that honesty and integrity have formed the pillar of our success over these years. We believe our success has made us the target of Evertz.
“We will vigorously defend the lawsuits and will pursue all appropriate legal actions against Evertz. Business will continue as usual and there should not be any impact on our customers while these matters are pending.”
