Real Media recently finished two demonstrative animation projects for Shook Hardy Bacon. The animations were created to support litigation efforts in patent infringement cases for both Garmin and Sprint. Both cases required very quick turnarounds and multiple revisions.
In the Garmin vs Tom Tom case, Real Media used a 3D city model, 3D cars and motion graphics to create scenarios to illustrate the patented technology used in Garmin's GPS route calculation technology as well as GPS technology in general. Six animations were completed in two weeks.
In the Sprint vs Vonage case, Real Media was contracted to create intricate animations to help illustrate Sprint's patented VOIP technology. 3D models, 2D animation and motion graphics were used to illustrate a variety of different scenarios and case studies.
Sprint was awarded $69.5 million by the jury and Vonage later settled for $80 million. In post trial polling jurors credited the Real Media animations with helping them understand the technology as well as the patent infringement.
