Case Study: heat transfer simulation using CLGL interop

Heat transfer and, more generally, parabolic partial differential equations are a very important class of problems in physics and mathematics. Analytic solutions aren't available for real-world problems where initial and boundary conditions can be arbitrary. CMSoft presents video tutorials and source code with detailed information about how to create the CLGL shared context, use OpenCL to accelerate the simulation of heat transfer and share an OpenGL texture to present the results to the user.

OpenCOLLADA and COLLADA CTS now on GitHub

OpenCOLLADA and the COLLADA Conformance Test Suite repositories are now both hosted on GitHub. As a reminder, please note that to bring integration of OpenCOLLADA plugins within the test suite and bug fixing, Khronos has issued a Request for Quotations (RFQ). This RFQ is open for bidding and you are welcome to request a copy through the public_collada mailing list. Last but not least, while at Siggraph, do not forget to stop by our both and to bring your demos! The COLLADA working group looks forward to hearing from you! Read More

WebGL Camp Europe videos and slides are now online

If you could not make it to the WebGL Camp Europe this year, don't despair. All the videos and slide decks are now online. There's a ton of great stuff and well worth the time to watch the videos. Read More

ZiiLABS and Symphony Teleca Demonstrate Accelerated OpenCL Compute on Android

At Google I/O ZiiLABS, in co-operation with Symphony Teleca, demonstrated how OpenCL can be used to deliver significant compute acceleration on Android platforms. The tablet demonstration of a new camera application, built by Symphony Teleca, uses OpenCL to implement a number of key image processing effects, comparing the performance of the algorithms implemented in both 'C' and OpenCL. The OpenCL code exploits the performance and flexibility of the underlying ZMS-40's media processing array to deliver significant advantages over CPU-only code. Read More
