WHIPgroup was successful in having obviousness rejections overturned by the Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB). The claimed invention relates to a modular video imaging system where the image acquisition, processing, control and display chain is segmented to optimize adaptability and compatibility.  The Examiner rejected the independent claims as allegedly being obvious over a combination of references. On Appeal, WHIPgroup argued that the references failed to teach several limitations of the claimed invention and the Examiner provided insufficient evidence to support an obviousness conclusion. The Board agreed and accordingly reversed all rejections.  A patent grant is expected in due course.
