The Khronos Group and the European Machine Vision Association (EMVA) announce the formation of a new Camera Working Group to develop an open, royalty-free API standard for controlling camera system runtimes in embedded, mobile, industrial, XR, automotive, and scientific markets. Over 70 companies participated in an EMVA/Khronos-hosted Exploratory Group during 2021 to develop a Scope of Work document that will guide the direction of the API design. Design work is expected to start in February 2022, and any organization is invited to join Khronos to participate.

GPUinfo.org enables the community to build extensive databases of Khronos API driver capabilities by uploading reports from diverse end-user devices and platforms. With more than 20,000 device reports available for Vulkan, OpenGL, and OpenGL ES across Windows, Linux, Android, Mac OSX, and iOS, GPUInfo.org has become a widely used resource for developers to gain detailed insights into deployed hardware support for features they wish to use, including devices for which they don’t have direct access. As a brand new addition, GPUInfo.org now offers a client application and server-side database for the OpenCL™ standard for cross-platform, heterogeneous parallel programming at opencl.gpuinfo.org.
