Technicolor has filed several patent infringement suits against Samsung Electronics, relating to products including digital TVs and mobile phones.
The suits were filed in the Regional Courts in Dusseldorf and Mannheim in Germany, and the First Instance Court of Paris in France.
The proceedings relate to 10 patents covering video coding, telecommunications and other associated technologies.
“Technicolor’s intellectual property assets stem from its in-house R&D efforts and its commitment to drive the world’s entertainment technology and devices forward,” said the company in a statement.
“This represents the work of thousands of Technicolor researchers and engineers over many years, with over €100 million invested annually in research and development.
“After extensive negotiations to reach a fair agreement, the group is now taking action to protect itself and defend the value of its intellectual property.”
