Khronos to Create New Open Standard for 
Advanced Device and Sensor Input

The Khronos™ Group today announced a new initiative to create an open, platform-independent, royalty-free standard for accessing a wide diversity of advanced input devices including depth cameras, motion-tracking sensors, touch-screens and haptic devices. In response to requests and proposals from multiple members, Khronos has created a ‘StreamInput’ working group that TransGaming Inc. has offered to initially chair. This royalty-free standard will be developed under the proven Khronos development process aiming for a first public release within 12 months. Any interested company is welcome to join Khronos to make contributions, influence the direction of the specification and gain early access to draft specifications before public release. The StreamInput working group will commence work during April 2011.
