For the last ten years, Khronos open standards have been the foundation of a multi-billion dollar industry. Khronos Group executives and founders are excited to visit Tokyo again to talk about how these Khronos APIs let developers tap into cutting edge graphics and media processing on platforms ranging from high-end workstations to mobile phones. This 2 hour session will give you up-to-the-minute updates on OpenGL, OpenCL, and COLLADA; and handheld graphics standards such as OpenGL ES and OpenVG.
This Invitation is to qualified press, academia, and digital media business leaders to attend and learn about Khronos. Please come to our news conference and luncheon and help Khronos celebrate its 10th anniversary as a leader in developing digital media standards.
