Since the very beginning, Coretronic has positioned itself as an innovative display solution provider. Coretronic was the first LCD backlight module manufacturer in Taiwan and it has taken the lead in developing and mass-producing the smallest and lightest VGA single-panel LCD projectors and XGA DLP projectors in the world through integrated its leading technology, “Optics, Mechanics, Electronic, Thermal Management, Materials and Precision Molds” and other technology.

The Khronos Group is pleased to announce the new Vulkan Guide on GitHub. Providing a high-level overview and a wealth of useful links, it’s the perfect place to get started with the API. The Vulkan Guide is designed to help developers get up and going with the world of Vulkan. It is aimed to be a light read that leads to many other useful links depending on what a developer is looking for. All information is intended to help better fill the gaps about the many nuances of Vulkan. The Vulkan Guide is a joint effort by the Khronos Membership.

Ogre developer Matias Goldberg announced that, yes, they are working on support for Vulkan. Currently very little running with Vulkan, however, Matias’ blog post does a good job of outlining some of the learning experiences he’s had to go through, and he gives a shout out to the new Vulkan Samples repository.

Codeplay will be joining experts in Denver to provide a keynote talk and be part of panel sessions discussing the strengths of SYCL for HPC. While traditionally high performance computing has seen use of interfaces such as FORTRAN, in the past few years there has been a rapidly growing interest in using C++ for HPC applications. In fact, this year at SC19 there are many sessions talking about C++, and more specifically SYCL, with a range of sessions presenting research projects using SYCL, providing a forum for discussion and explaining how to develop using SYCL. Andrew Richards (CEO), Michael Wong (VP R&D and SYCL WG Chair) and John Lawson (AI Software Expert) from Codeplay will be at SuperComputing 2019 (SC19) in Denver, Colorado and are ready for a packed agenda that includes more SYCL talks than ever before. Learn more about what Codeplay will be doing at SC19 and see what other Khronos related sessions will be at SC19.

CEVA is the leading licensor of wireless connectivity and smart sensing technologies. They offer Digital Signal Processors, AI processors, wireless platforms and complementary software for sensor fusion, image enhancement, computer vision, voice input and artificial intelligence, all of which are key enabling technologies for a smarter, connected world.

​The folks behind Godot, the free and open-source (MIT license) game development engine and toolset, have released Vulkan progress report #5. Some of the bigger changes this month will include: real-time lighting thanks to a clever voxel lighting implementation using signed distance fields; GIProbe now supports multiple bounce lighting (3 bounces), and generates voxel ambient occlusion with options to tweak it manually and Dynamic Objections may be added to a scene and can emit their own light.

Furniture Today talks about the Khronos Group 3D Commerce Working Group, the benefits of using AR online, and where 3D Commerce is going. Khronos members Marxent and Wayfair are showing data which shows shoppers are more likely to purchase if they can view the products using Augmented Reality. Marxent data shows that more than half of shoppers on a website that use Marxent 3D content are using augmented reality in their shopping experience. More data from Shopify shows users that view products with augmented reallity are 2.5 times more likely to convert versus users seeing only traditional photos. Learn more about 3D Commerce and the future of online shopping with AR. Learn more about 3D Commerce and discover the over 80 companies supporting the 3D Commerce group.
