Khronos to Create New Open Standard for Computer Vision

The Khronos Group announced a new initiative to create an open, royalty-free standard for cross platform acceleration of computer vision applications. In response to requests and proposals from members, Khronos has created a vision working group to develop a hardware acceleration API using the proven Khronos development process and 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 vision working group will commence work during January 2012.

API for data parallel Java using OpenCL

API for data parallel Java (Aparapi) allows Java developers to take advantage of the compute power of GPU and APU devices by executing data parallel code fragments on the GPU rather than being confined to the local CPU. It does this by converting Java bytecode to OpenCL at runtime and executing on the GPU, if for any reason Aparapi can't execute on the GPU it will execute in a Java thread pool.

OpenCL: The Future of Accelerated Application Performance Is Now

This white paper is a followup to the AMD FirePro webinar "OpenCL & the Future of Desktop High Performance Computing in CAD" (now on-demand). It is a worthwhile introduction to what OpenCL and general-purpose computing across both CPUs and GPUs. In addition to the technology, it discusses why use an open standards / non-proprietary approach and the rapid growth rate of OpenCL. Finally it describes some of the applications that will take immediate advantage of OpenCL including numerical computation and high-end visualization in CAD/CAM/CAE or real-time visualization/presentation, real-time video processing, and physics simulations in DCC/ Media & Entertainment.

ReadyMap Web SDK leverages WebGL for 3D Maps

ReadyMap SDK is a free JavaScript library for embedding 3D maps in a web page. Build 3D maps using ReadyMap's API, or turn your OpenLayers or Leaflet maps into 3D globes. ReadyMap can display 3D map data as well, so you can plot terrain elevation, extruded features, and more. ReadyMap leverages WebGL technology to render high-performance 3D maps.

Khronos Group Releases OpenMAX IL 1.2 Provisional Specification

The Khronos Group today announced the release of OpenMAX™ IL 1.2 as a provisional specification. OpenMAX IL is a royalty-free, cross-platform C-language API for integration of multimedia components into media frameworks to simplify deployment of audio/video encoders/decoders, camera control, and audio, video and image processing algorithms across diverse platforms. OpenMAX IL 1.2 is a backward compatible upgrade that includes dynamic buffer allocation, improved media graph management, in-band signaling, enhanced audio video synchronization, a wider range of standard components and enhanced camera control capabilities together with many other improvements and clarifications to increase interoperability between media processing components. The specification has been released in provisional form to enable developers and implementers to provide feedback before specification finalization. The OpenMAX IL 1.2 provisional specification is available for immediate download.
