ObjectVideo issued a statement at 7:30 this morning announcing that it has dropped patent infringement charges against Samsung.  The statement came two hours before an International Trade Commission trial began at 9:30 this morning.

I called ObjectVideo, but they’re not saying anything beyond what’s in the press release. I also have a call into Samsung.

The release says that ObjectVideo filed an unopposed motion to terminate the International Trade Commission investigation against Samsung.  “Both parties agreed this was the appropriate next step as part of our continued efforts to resolve the dispute between the companies,” Raul Fernandez, CEO of ObjectVideo, is quoted as saying in the press release.

“The public trial against Bosch at the USITC, resulting from an investigation pertaining to products from Robert Bosch GmbH and Bosch Security Systems, Inc., continues as planned,” the release said.

“With Samsung out of the ITC action, we can focus on Bosch, whose products implement numerous infringing video analytic technologies, including metadata, tripwire, and slip-and-fall technology,” added Fernandez.

OV first filed a court complaint in April of 2011. It moved the complaint to the ITC in July of 2011.

The trial began this morning at the USITC in Washington.
