Virtually a yr since professional cinema digital camera maker RED sued Nikon for infringing on its video compression patents, the 2 firms have agreed to a joint dismissal of the lawsuit “with out prejudice.” That successfully means Nikon is permitted to proceed providing compressed inside RAW video recording in cameras just like the Z9—which gained the information compression tech in an enormous 2.0 firmware replace in April 2022.

There could possibly be a lot of causes behind the so-called Rule 41 dismissal, and we are able to solely speculate what they could be, however evidently neither social gathering had the abdomen to undergo with the litigation and all of the authorized expense that might have entailed. Given Nikon’s objections to the veracity of RED’s patents, it appears unlikely that the Japanese firm agreed to pay RED for the rights to make use of them. Alternatively, if RED felt the patents weren’t going to face as much as scrutiny, it might need determined towards pursuing the case so as to preserve the patents on the books and keep away from weakening them.

Both manner, it’s excellent news for filmmakers—particularly these with extra modest budgets for full-frame mirrorless cameras just like the Z9!
